Sage Business Cloud People

Business Cloud People is part of Sage’s Business Cloud offering, which also includes an accounting package. People, its HR solution, is aimed at medium and large businesses, and is provided on a bespoke basis. The software will be installed according to your specific needs - and it’s priced on the same terms.

Sage’s offering boasts an impressive suite of features. The basics are all covered, such as time and attendance tracking, performance reviews, and engagement surveys. There are also onboarding tools, and applicant tracking systems to help you through the hiring process. One notable absence is scheduling, so Sage Business Cloud People may not be the right choice if you’re running a shift-based business.

Sage’s platform also includes benefit management systems, which are missing from most of its main competitors. Document management is also included, along with a fully-featured self-service portal to allow employees to interact directly with the platform.

It’s worth remembering that Sage Business Cloud People is targeted squarely at larger businesses (it claims to support up to 5,000 employees), and its pricing reflects that. However, if you’re looking for a comprehensive HR solution for a large organisation, it’s definitely worth investigating.
