Overall Satisfaction with Ascentis

We use Ascentis for both our HRIS system and payroll processing. It is only used by our CFO, Controller and myself (HR Generalist). Both systems help us stay on top of all IRS rules and regulations (i.e. 1095-C forms and new tax laws).
  • The ability to print our payroll checks in house. We are not at the mercy of a delivery service.
  • The linking of the HRIS system to the payroll system.
  • Quicker customer service.
  • Ascentis provides us a pretty good product for the price.
Currently not using "time management attendance" so not sure how it compares to other providers.
Most times when I call I do not get a "live" person. I usually have to leave a message for a call back.
Just yesterday I had a question on the processing of semi-monthly and the Ascentis rep helped resolve my issue.
Ascentis is well suited for our company of 80+ employees. The payroll process is a very easy process.
