Costumer Service is the best

5 6 months ago

Comments: It is a very robust system user friendly everything is in one platform, continuous updates, payroll is accurate, but most important is their customer support

Pros:

Time management communicates with payroll, easy to use, very flexible, all kinds of reports can be extracted, analytics are awesome, but most important is their support team, when you have an issue, they are super friendly, professional and knowledgeable, reply or call in a timely manner and they are always there for you going the extra mile. The company is always looking for ways to improve .

Cons:

It does not communicate with benefits, and a little bit limited when it comes to performance management

Avanti has been a gamechanger

5 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Avanti has completed changed our payroll experience. The data entry time has been slashed, the accuracy of the time and allocation have increased exponentially.
I personally have gone from spending a few days each month on payroll to a few hours.
The reports have given us invaluable insight into th erunnings of the school.

Pros:

Their customer service is amazing. Everyone helps with a smile. Never need to break my head on anything, because I can always call or email and get a quick response. The multi dimensional reporting has been critical to understanding our schools costs.

Cons:

The report designer is a bit complicated. The reports work amazingly, but I struggle to create new ones. I have seen other programs with drag and drop reporting, which Avanti does not have. But help is a short phone call away.
