We just completed a great conference by Sage Software. The main theme for Summit 2014, and indeed for the organization is to strive to be the best support organization of the Small to Medium business. They fully admit they are not there yet, but announced several initiatives to move them closer to their goal. Here are a few short descriptions of some of the news.
Sage Abra Suite – It lives! While Sage is no longer selling the Sage Abra Suite product, thousands of customers still rely on the product for their HRIS and payroll processing needs. Sage is committed to supporting the product for the foreseeable future. There will come a time when the product releases of operating systems from Microsoft will make Abra Suite’s underlying FoxPro database obsolete. But, until that time comes Abra Suite will remain a true workhorse.
Sage HRMS – If your organization sees its HRIS and payroll systems as mission critical, and demand the latest technology tools for greater reliability and dependability then Sage HRMS is in your future. The migration from Sage Abra Suite to Sage HRMS was a popular topic. The vast majority of feature gaps have been closed between the products. Additionally, Sage HRMS has many features never included in Abra Suite. As a bonus, the balancing and closing routines in the Microsoft SQL based product are much more efficient saving hours in maintenance time each quarter and year-end. With the experience garnered by multiple migrations, the processes to move from the legacy product has matured and has become more efficient allowing time to truly improve processes with the newer system.
The most exciting news is the plethora of new products which extend the usefulness of these HRIS systems. The following products can be added to your system and provide the “best of breed” utility rarely found in one place.
If you would like additional information regarding any of these great HRMS products, let us know how we can help.
