3 Reasons to Migrate to Sage HRMS from Sage Abra

Sage HRMS is the best migration option for current Sage Abra users who want to continue benefitting from the Sage ecosystem and the user set-up they have grown accustomed to. By the end of 2020, Sage Abra will not be a viable option as your human resource management solution. With no more updates past that December, payroll and tax data will have to be handled manually unless you upgrade to a new HR system.

The Sage HRMS solution represents an improvement upon Sage Abra, with a more modern database that features better security and process automation. HRMS delivers the Sage functionality you relied on in the Abra Suite, but with enhanced technology that streamlines HR and payroll procedures.

Here are three reasons to migrate to Sage HRMS from your legacy Sage Abra software:

1

Sage HRMS VS Sage Abra – Cybersecurity, Automation, Cloud

Sage HRMS outpaces Sage Abra as a modern HR technology system that benefits from more up-to-date features. The Abra Suite is a legacy solution based on an outdated programming environment, Microsoft Visual FoxPro (VFP).

The modern SQL Server utilized by Sage HRMS features native cybersecurity controls, and is regularly reviewed by government agencies for security compliance. Additionally, SQL databases are faster, scalable for storage space and user traffic, and automatically back up your data. When comparing Sage HRMS versus Sage Abra, HRMS improves upon everything Abra delivers.

Migrate Faster with Sage HRMS, ASM and SWK Technologies

Migrating from any HR and payroll system will never be a painless task due to the amount of sensitive employee information that must be catalogued and moved. Working with outdated databases like VFP also means that you have to convert this data to a more modern format.

In addition to delivering better technology, Sage HRMS features an easier migration solution for Abra Suite users. By leveraging the Sage-endorsed Automated SQL Migration (ASM) tool, your move from HRMS to Sage Abra will be as seamless as possible.

Save Money on your Abra Migration by Staying with Sage

ASM not only saves Sage Abra users time when migrating to Sage HRMS, but it also provides a cheaper alternative to choosing an entirely new HR and payroll system. Selecting another human resource software solution will involve a brand-new implementation, with a different database. Data will have to be copied and entered manually in addition to training your users to handle an unfamiliar interface.

With automated data conversion, access to Sage source code for customizations, and the flexibility to choose between on-premise or the cloud, you will save significant costs by migrating to the latest Sage HR solution.

Abra Users – Migrate to Sage HRMS Before It’s Too Late!

In a less than a year, Sage will release the last update to the Abra Suite, but by then it will already be too late to migrate. Your migration plan must account for the time it takes your employees to grow accustomed to new payroll software – remaining with a Sage HR solution will make this easier.
