I dislike that half of the time we could not access it. We were also using it for a restaurant and it was very slow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

PDS/Vista is on top of the ever changing HR/Payroll world. We love the fact that we can customize the application as we need to. The employees love the easy to use Open Enrollment feature and that they can view their accruals/pay stubs with one click. PDS/Vista customer support is the BEST in the business!

The customer service is very important. Software allows multi states.

The position structure is very cumbersome and difficult to update. Though it has changed quite a bit from Vista 4 the changes made weren't for the better.

Some of the things that used to work fine in 4.1 don't work in 7. I like that there is more screen print buttons added , but they only print the screen showing, not all the information on the page if you have to scroll down. It kind of defeats the purpose when it doesn't print all the information. Also when using the timesheet to add deduction or fringe adjustments that apply only for the specific pay period it doesn't stay on the same tab when changing employees.

I don't think there is anything that I don't like at this time. There are things that we can't do 100% the same as we did before, but we can get pretty close.

Our clients being spread across different states, have varied requirements and the flexibility of Vista HRMS makes the application a good solution for us across the board.

We selected Vista HRMS after a diligent evaluation process. We were looking for a flexible solution that could grow with us. Vista is highly customizable, and flexible. We have been able to customize screens, user fields and workflows. This was a critical part of our evaluation. Other providers "claimed" the ability to customize, but Vista delivered on it. Our sales team is fabulous and they are still able to assist with support. It's good to know that the sales team stands behind the product, and the product holds up to the promises of the sales team. Vista is being used by our HR, PR and Recruiting teams. It has an easy self service interface for our employees. It's flexibility allowed us to rollout self service in stages, as we were ready. The security allows us to lock out or conceal certain screens or fields, which has allowed us to use Vista as an online employee directory in addition to an HR/PR solution. We are very pleased with the product and the company.

It is used across the whole organization. It provides more detail to our users for payroll and benefits. It also allows us to use the data and integrate other data from other systems to report out information and tie in employment and demographic information. It allows our admins to spend less time manually updating data as well.
Security - flexibility to a wide variety of types of users. Expansion - When acquisitions happen it was quick to add a company. User Exp - Users find it easy to navigate and find what they need.

We are currently using it for are HRIS in our HR department. It is used for payroll as well. We have rolled out self-service to a few of our employees. It helps bring all functions of the HR/Payroll together in one system.
Manual check process is very long and drawn out. Importing a large batch from an excel spreadsheet - without having to ask someone to write a function for that. It would be great if the system gave you some kind of an alert if something was wrong, without having to wait until the employee came to you. Payroll reports that could be more user-friendly.

Vista HRMS is used across our entire organization for HR data, benefits enrollment and payroll processing.
We do not utilize the performance appraisal process in Vista because our process requires our employees to have individual goals that are tracked and measured in addition to the traditional competencies. We have a very involved bonus calculation process which Vista is not able to support We currently use another product for Time and Attendance because we've been with that system well before Vista added it to their functionality.

Our organization uses Vista HRMS for Human Resource and Payroll functions. We also use the Recruiting tools within Vista to power our online application process. We use Vista across the entire company at different accesses/levels. For instance our HR and Accounting departments use all areas of Vista while a supervisor may use it to look at an employee's salary level, past performance review evaluations, safety training, etc. An employee uses Vista to check the benefits they are enrolled in, their pay information, and ensure that their personal information is up to date and accurate. It serves as a user friendly tool that all levels of computer users feel comfortable accessing.

I learned a lot about Crystal Reports and due to being ambitious and a self motivator, I really learned a lot about inner workings of this product. Wish we had the opportunity to get into workflows and really make this a win.
