Ascentis Overview

Ascentis is a specific Human Resources online platform designed to consolidate all aspects of employee welfare under one unified stream. Be it payroll, attendance/leave, benefits, career development & recruitment, it does it all. Let’s explore this further:

• Flexible & efficient credit control features to ensure full accuracy & save time. Their payroll wizard can handle multiple accounts simultaneously as well as seamlessly. It even offers multiple payment channels to suit the needs of your workers.
• Incentivise performance by offering rewards directly linked to and gauged upon reliable activity data. Share feedback, set appraisals, perform audits & reviews.
• Monitor employee performance live and offer suitable training & growth opportunities accordingly. This along with the aforesaid incentives promotes retention.
• Take advantage of automated workflows to select the best talent out there and curate a bespoke workforce, in terms of knowledge, skills & experience. With an integrated dynamic career portal, social media output & onboarding/registration, never miss or make an error again!

So clearly, there’s a lot to digest here in terms of good points; however, what about the other aspect of Ascentis?

• The practical use of hiring tools here appears complex and irrational at times
• Generally, it lacks basic ergonomics such as expandable windows or a zoom feature to make certain details on screen easier to read. Have we reentered the 80s again?!
• Lack of customer & technical support for users from Ascentis’s side: often reported to take several weeks after posting multiple reminders to resolve an issue. Not good.
• Remote desktop users will be faced with the hassle of storage limitations impeding their attachment uploads…and then needing to figure out what went missing. Unimpressed.

In conclusion then, Ascentis being tenured in this industry & offering many innovative options does stand tall with its concepts. Sadly, more often than not, that also where it remains: at the design stage. The implementation of these features is fidgety to say the least and further user integrated development, feedback and patching is required. Then only perhaps Ascentis will fulfil its legacy in full.
