Overall Satisfaction with Optimum Solutions HRIS

Optimum HRIS is the human resources and payroll software used by the account department. All departments in the organization use Optimum HRIS for time and attendance management. Optimum HRIS allowed West Virginia Media to bring payroll back in house to save time and money, while increasing the amount of control over taxes and reporting that was lacking from using a third party payroll administrator.
  • The setup of Optimum HRIS was intense as the software comes as a basic shell and everything is personalized to our organization. All earnings codes, leave time, employee types, job codes, taxes, etc. are set up for each company. While this was almost overwhelming at the beginning, we have so much control over the set up and better grasp of the inner workings of the system.
  • Tax updates come quickly and are easily applied. This is especially welcome at year end.
  • The built-in reporting is robust and offers a lot of options, but the ability to dig in to the database using SQL and Excel allows for very powerful reports that are infinitely personalized.
  • The web interface for Optimum HRIS has been less than user friendly but recent updates have definitely shown an improvement.
  • Cosmetically (and nothing to do with functionality), reporting could be "prettier" or allow for customization.
  • More accurate payroll processing
  • More accurate tax payments and reporting
We use Optimum HRIS in a very small department and generally only one person is working in the database at a time. I would be curious to know how effective Optimum HRIS is at handling a larger number of users modifying the database on a regular basis. For our small shop, Optimum HRIS works beautifully.
