Overall Satisfaction with Ascentis HR

During a transition, we had an issue where there was no one in the company who had the SQL database password, which was needed in order to pull over historical data. Ascentis technology team worked tirelessly and were able to get into the database and make a smooth transition of the data.
As a trusted consultant to my clients, I am in a position to refer the best HRIS system. I implemented Ascentis HR for a client of mine who had previously had the client-server version installed locally but was about 5 years old and not utilized to its fullest capacity. I implemented the cloud-based version for this client and they are happily building it out and using it. The system allows HR to provide customized business reporting to executives so targeted business decisions can be made based on facts and trends.
  • The reporting capability and customization is of great use.
  • The system is very user-friendly and doesn't require users to know and understand coding.
  • The cloud availability is great for technology companies who don't necessarily conduct all of their business in one location. It allows flexibility with staffing and telecommuting for HR professionals.
  • I really can't say that Ascentis needs to improve at this point. It's a great system for organizations who want a full-bodied system without the expense and downtime of implementation and training.
  • Ascentis HR has enabled my clients to produce and deliver more focused business reports. This is a high ROI.

Ascentis HR was chosen because of their pricing model and the fact that an older version was previously installed and used by the HR team. However, given the system's user-friendliness, it is a great tool for organizations.
Reporting is of great use in Ascentis. It is very user-friendly and no coding experience is necessary.
