To find a suitable HRMS system for your business, comparing and analyzing the various alternatives is essential. The three tough competitors of Sage HRMS are Paylocity, BambooHR, and Kronos.
  • Functionality: Paylocity is a cloud-based HR management system for small and medium-sized organizations. Paylocity offers various features including, labor management, payroll integrations, employee portal, document templates, activity dashboard, employee self-service, interactive reporting, and financial analysis. In addition, Paylocity considers each organization needs and then suggests the well-suited module for their business needs. However, Sage HRMS does not offer any such customized services.

    BambooHR is a cloud-based solution for complete employee lifecycle processes. It offers all necessary human resource management features, including employee record management, recruitment & onboarding, performance management, compliance management, and people analytics. Even though BambooHR offers a similar feature set as Sage HRMS, the people analytics feature gives it an edge over Sage HRMS.

    Kronos is a cloud-based human resource management software for medium and large-sized organizations. It is also mobile app support which makes it easier for HRMS. Kronos offers talent acquisition, employee management, payroll management, attendance, people analytics, reminders, ACA manager, payroll tax filing, and compensation management. You can have different access controls as well in Kronos. Sage HRMS, although it offers a wide feature set, it does not have payroll tax features.
  • Pricing: The pricing of Paylocity is not provided on their official website. However, the cost of BambooHR is around $6 per month per user. However, users can also sign up for a free trial to help organizations understand if the tools fit their requirements. The cost of Kronos is approximately $6 per month per user, which is the same as Bamboo HR. Given the cost of BambooHR and Kronos, the per-user cost of Sage HRMS is lesser than Sage HRMS. However, the features offered by all tools are more and less similar.
  • Support: Sage HRMS offers online support, documentation, and blogs to help customers with their resource management needs. The three other alternatives, namely, BambooHR, Kronos, and Playocity, provide documentation, online support, newsletters, and blogs to help customers with their queries.
