Overall, the software as a whole is extremely user friendly. Being a person that doesn't mind clicking around to find what I need, I find that I can problem solve on my own quite often. There are a few times that I wish there was a different flow, example being Recruiting. There is not an ease is clicking back to the screen before without doing a new search again. But all in all, I do think this is good for all.

Overall, the process runs smoothly and easily. There are only a few minor details I have ran into that I would see if an adjustment could possibly be made. On my end, those things can manually have a process to make them work as I need.

Have to click a lot of different things to get to the section you're looking for without a lot of training. Training not easily accessible

The reports creator could be simplified and again, the system needs to automatically calculate mid-period pay raises for hourly EEs like it does for salary. The fact that I have to do manual calculations on this is not a huge deal but every time I have to do it I think "the system should do this considering what we paid for it".

As mentioned earlier, if you step into using Ascentis without an understanding of how everything flows, you will be lost. It is not simple. It is not intuitive. I was able to figure everything out, but to really feel like I knew what was going on took around two full years and many mistakes made with lessons learned.

Ascentis is easy for all users but on the admin side, you have to have a lot of knowledge of ALL the buttons that need to be pushed to make a change/adjustment that is seemingly easy. There's no such thing as a casual user; there are daily users for timeclocks and such and a dedicated admin to have a working knowledge of all working parts.

I think the usability is good for users; some challenges for managers and administrators. It is not as seamless as they said during the sales process.

Usability is an interesting way to describe this rating. The true usability factors in time spent troubleshooting, exchanging many frustrating/unhelpful messages with Support, unintended consequences when errors are reported and Support claims "it has been corrected", but in reality, the fix/workaround has negatively affected something else in the system that we only discover later on.

I love the ability to do whatever I need to get done within the system when I need to. It's very user-friendly and the resources available are helpful as well. I've been approached endlessly by Paycom over the 5 years but I keep telling them that we are super happy with Ascentis and don't anticipate making any changes for the foreseeable future.

Payroll works well. HR desktop doesn't. Web based Ascentis not fully functional yet, so no point in going there. High hopes for it!

Employees and Management all love this product, as the ease of use is great! The app makes it very user friendly, as things can be done from cell phones anywhere at any time! Our Field Service Technicians love that they can clock in and out, etc., from any location, and that their time can be approved accordingly.
