Overall Satisfaction with Ascentis

We are currently using Ascentis as our HRIS system. The HR department uses this on a daily basis. We also share our information with our Benefits Coordinator, which happens to be an outside company. The systems manages all benefits as well as acting as a traditional HRIS.
  • The system is great for customization. You can change and add custom pages and track items that your company needs
  • The reporting system is very robust- it has many set reports and also allows for a customization wizard where you can run a report on anything you have in the system, including notes.
  • The Communication Wizard makes internal communications much easier and allows for tracking.
  • There are not many downsides to Ascentis, but I do wish it would connect to outside systems a little easier. We have found workarounds, but it is not ideal.
  • Communication and tracking of the communication across the company has been much improved
  • Compliance requirements are eased due to the tracking and easy reporting
  • We are able to match and an asset for our Finance and accounting department with more accurate records and data
I came from an organization using PeopleSoft. It was a great robust system that worked well for a large company. The support side was not good though. Ascentis gives us all we need and a great support and customer service aspect that Oracle could never beat.
This is a great system for small to medium sized companies.
