Pros

My light in to this software was one of the very first things I received as a new hire. Helps keep me on track, as far as work performance goes.

Cons

Ascentis solid programming software

outstanding by far.

Pros

Ascentis has been easy to understand in the set-up interaction and backing has been extremely useful with any inquiries we have. This is our first HRIS, and it is so ideal to have all representative data in one area. The framework has been not difficult to make refreshes in.

Cons

The most difficult thing for us is getting Tax questions replied when required as the assessment division isn't however effectively open as they may be in another city, which is a few hour time distinction for us and you need to email them with any inquiries to find a solution.

Ascentis fills a niche that has a vacuum but is not complete

What took it over the top with poor satisfaction is that they tried to be good partners but as of late they just throw in the towel and want money.

Pros

Ascentis does the benefits, applicants and other HR functions on a basic level. Let me stress basic level.

Cons

If you want any integrations or some of the complexities when have beyond 100 employees, would suggest not utilizing Ascentis. Coupled with the added burden of the 1095-c and the need to manually update various records because Ascentis has software issues, it is disappointing.

If support is important to you, go with Ascentis

Overall, our experience with Ascentis has been positive. We saved a little bit of money, gained the support we needed, were able to streamline the close of payroll periods, and can process payroll much quicker.

Pros

The best part about Ascentis is their support, hands down. It is very rare that we have to wait more than 1 or 2 business days to get an issue resolved or an answer to a question. If it is an urgent matter, they are on it immediately. In addition, we get a dedicated Account Manager that is very responsive and helpful. Even when our account managers have changed, they are always brought up to speed and haven't dropped a ball yet.

Cons

The modules are somewhat segmented. We log into one application for payroll, another application for HR, and another application for timekeeping. They are working toward getting everything centralized and web-based, but they aren't quite there yet.

Alternatives Considered

Paylocity and Paycom

Reasons for Choosing Ascentis

ADP had virtually zero support, and it was expensive. We would go months without hearing back from anyone at ADP. Our "Account Manager" would sporadically respond to us but never solve any issues. And it was about a billion clicks to get payroll processed.

Reasons for Switching to Ascentis

Neither of these companies showed up for the initial meeting that was set up, so we went with the only one that did, Ascentis.
