Self service is very useful functionality for all employees, managers and HR staff.

Sage is excellent solution for mid-market enterprise. Easy to implement, easy to use, easy to admin, good self-service functionality brings efficiencies.

Migration and data conversion require implementation support form vendor or third party, implementation is straight forward, require 4-6 weeks schedule Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

More advance functionality (such as self service, analytics) require more time and effort to implement.

Integration with other enterprise systems, such as ERP financials, Project management requires development efforts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that the home page is completely modifiable and so it can be clean and organized and designed however relevant for your company. What I think is really practical and helpful that I haven't seen before with another platform like this is it shows you right when you click on 'vacation and absence' how many hours of accrued paid time off you have after future requests. In the past, I've had to count manually for figure it out. This platform is easier than ADP in that the interface is less busy and more straightforward. It was quick to submit a request of time off. I like that it shows you each month in a calendar view so you can see it an overview glance all the dates you have time off or the dates that are holidays.

It also has a mobile version so you can do everything from your phone.

It's very convenient to have all benefit information in one place including health care documents, policies, etc. Everything is straightforward and organized. You can also review and acknowledge review of company policies on this platform which cuts down on paper waste and increases efficiency. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far, I have not found anything that I dislike about this platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a clean, easy to use platform that does everything HR-related. It's more user friendly and has a nicer interface that ADP. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to have all benefit information in one place including health care documents, policies, etc. and include all vacation and absence time off information. We can even include payroll information - bank accounts and amounts of payments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

(5) The application of usage is limitless especially for HR processes and procedures. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

(1) Reporting may actually,be edited to suit usage at times,

(2) the feature for multiple currency usage especially in the management of expatriate employees that are not earning currencies in the local money may be difficult to inculcate in the software.

(3) while it has ensured easy retrieval of records and statutory reports, we occasionally have to edit these reports before they are submitted.

(4) The software can be slow at times especially after launch on.

(5) Having to search for employees using titles is rather cumbersome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is a learning curve with Fairsail. Since it's Salesforce based, you do need to learn the basics of using that system. Plus Fairsail is also limited to what Saleforce can do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It does take time to set everything up as well as learn how to use it so be prepared to dedicate time to it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Fairsail is helping to solve our employee tracking, reporting, and onboarding needs. It's been great to be able to go to one system for data on each of these items. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We have been using Fairsail for just over a year now and the HR team are experiencing some huge benefits. The automated processes have not only enabled the HR team to be more efficient, the quality of our data has increased dramatically. Although Fairsail is an ‘out of the box' product, I am impressed with the amount of configuration options it has which enables us to build a system which really feels like our own but with a stable foundation. Our employees have provided some great feedback on the collaboration portal. They love having the ability to view their data anytime, and anywhere. The Fairsail implementation team have been fantastic throughout whole process, great team to work with, excellent support and very extensive knowledge. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some functionality gaps which would you expect to be incorporated into a HRIS of this size. Fairsail have focused some of the latest releases on the 'voice of the customer' so its great to see customers requests are being considered and incorporated in future releases. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before implementing Fairsail, we had disparate systems, we now have one global, scalable people database providing capabilities beyond basic transactions. We have implemented standardized business processes to ensure consistency across the globe. The tool is easy to use and our employees and managers love having the ability to access/manage their own data via self-service which has improved our data quality dramatically. The easy to use reporting tools enable us to produce accurate, real-time, global reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Everyone at Fairsail has been great to work with; consultative; responsive, personable, and customer focused. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The biggest challenge has been to supplement the core implementation services with additional training and change management delivery and materials. Because the system is so configurable, there are no standard off the shelf training documents and materials we could use straight off. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As with any HR implementation, spend the time on the front end ensuring you have processes documented and data cleansed as much as possible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We did not have one central HCM; we used a group of non integrated systems from acquired companies. Fairsail has been able to incorporate all the HR activities into one global system, successfully allowing for management of different businesses around the globe.

We will be retiring 3 different systems that house HR data/functions today; we have already seen improved usage of ESS/MSS; user satisfaction, and data integrity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Salesforce platform offers wide-ranging customization options and the ability to integrate with many different software programs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The company is fairly new and has been growing slowly to this point meaning that support and development have been more limited than would be ideal. This should improve with the Sage acquisition. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to automate core HR processes. Fairsail has provided a platform to achieve this and will continue to do so as they grow. This has been the best improvement we have achieved through Fairsail. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the flexibility of the system and ease of use. It enables HR professionals to manage their HR system using a user-friendly interface, without having to rely on an IT department to manage the system. Creating fields, setting up reports can all be done by non-IT professionals which provides a level of flexibility most HR solutions cannot provide. Highly configurable absence/leave module so easy to adapt to needs/requirements of different countries including more 'challenging' ones such as France, Italy or Belgium. Also rate the support received from Fairsail very highly, they are very responsive and are always happy to consider implementing suggestions for improvement in their next releases. The solution is reliable, running on the salesforce.com platform and combines the flexibility of a 'smaller' provider (i.e. vs. Oracle for example) with the robustness and reliability of a large and well established platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We knew right from the start Fairsail would not support all of our in-country local requirements 'out of the box'. This is not something I 'disliked' but I would like to emphasise that it will take some work to get each country set up, there is no such thing as a default configuration for 'France' or for 'China'. Having said that with the flexibility mentioned above it is relatively easy and quick to configure this and to ensure the system is aligned to our business needs applicable to each country. We had the system up and running, at least for the core functionality - for all countries within 6 weeks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Would highly recommend Fairsail, especially in international organisations who need to see quick results and who do not have a large scale IT team to provide internal support on HR systems. Ideal for HR teams who would like to 'shape' their own HR solution without having to rely on internal or external IT consultants. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data quality - Improved our people data dramatically which has allowed is to integrate with other systems therefore streamlining HR processes as a result.

You have a dedicated Implementation Consultant who you can build a good working relationship with (in our case Yanithza Perilla). Yani made us feel that she really understood our business and there was a solution to any problem. It helped us to focus on our processes and streamline these to help us all work more effectively and efficiently.

Any queries were dealt with promptly and all of the Fairsail team are extremely supportive.

The system is user-friendly and adaptable to all business needs, it has a great look and feel to it. We looked at a number of products before choosing Fairsail as it 'ticked all the boxes' for our growing global business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
