End-to-end and centralised HCM tool helpful in managing employee data, performance evaluation, compensation, and other things. All our company documents and policies can be found in one place which is extremely useful considering we're working from home. As a manager, it's helpful in tracking and managing productivity better. Overall, I feel it improves business efficiency.
  • Easy to configure, set up, and integrate with pre-existing tools we use on day to day basis.
  • Since everyone is WFH, it can get confusing to know who's who. Sage People eliminates this process
  • You can get access to employees in other departments like sales, development, etc.
  • Training manuals are not much useful. You always need a helping hand to move forward.
  • When you have to look up employees, we have to provide their job title which I feel is not an efficient way.
For the $$$/user, I think Sage People does justice to the features and the platform. It's easy to use and the team did not have much problem on implementing and integrating it with our other applications. Can't remember any instance where it's less suited.

Sage People is used by our entire organization as our primary HR information system. We use it for our online recruitment and application process as well as for current employees. It provides self-service functionality for current employees, including features such as timecards, vacation/absence management, performance reviews, and online forms and benefits.
  • It is completely web-based so both employees and HR administrators can access the software from anywhere with no need to install special software.
  • Sage People is based on the platform so it has a robust API which is well documented and easy to integrate with other systems.
  • Sage People can integrate with almost any payroll system using their "Payflow" interface
  • Customer support is responsive and helpful.
  • We found out-of-the-box configuration and fields for employees and salary to be lacking and had to do extensive customization especially for salary.
  • Basic salary functionality like uniform pay grades and automatic calculations based on FTE are lacking. This makes simple things like COLA adjustments to be a chore.
  • It is very easy to customize, which is a "Pro", but also means that you might have to do quite a bit of customization to get it to do what you'd like.
  • The employee Self-serve ("WX") interface can be a bit slow at times.
Sage People is well suited to small-medium sized organizations that would like a cloud-based HR solution with no need for servers or software to install. I really like the fact that it is based on so you know that it will be extremely reliable and well supported. It is very flexible and customizable and can work in complex HR arrangements. For example, we have employees in nearly 60 countries and multiple HR jurisdictions and we are able to make it work for us. However, if you are moving from a traditional or customized HR system there may be a steep learning curve and you should be prepared to spend a lot of time setting up and customizing to your needs, in addition to training.

Worldwide uses Sage People across the entire global workforce. We have two business units, and operate in over 30 countries and manage all on Sage People. We use it as our holistic HR enterprise system, which includes Recruit, Data Management, Performance Management, Compensation and Benefits, Merit and Bonus Planning, Manager and Employee Self-Service, and On+Off Boarding.

This system allows us to have a system of truth, global processes, and enterprise-wide HR data and reports.
  • Sage is highly flexible and configurable, allowing us to manage the variety of geographies and functional units in one platform.
  • Sage is highly customer focused, with great CSM support.
  • Sage People will be able to integrate with other Sage pillars such as Accounting and Payroll.
  • Sage Support is sometimes tricky, as the system is so configurable that each client's setup is unique.
  • Sage is so configurable that at times it is a challenge to make use of all the functionality.
  • Sage US Benefits functionality is progressing now that the company is building out the US based resources - CSM, Support, and Systems.
Sage is great for global, mid-size companies. It's also ideal if you have a good handle on your company's practices and policies, so that configuration of PTO and processes are seamless.

It might be a challenge for larger companies, and for companies that are US based only.
