The Sage HR mobile app is available from Google Play on Android and Apple App Store on iOS. You can also access Sage HR via your web browser in Safari, Chrome or Edge.

Your smartphone will give you more than enough speed to use Sage HR smoothly. Sage HR is designed for high performance even on low internet speeds (around 2Mb). A standard 3G phone connection should suffice for our Android and iPhone apps for accounting.

Sage HR is the ideal choice for small to medium-sized businesses, whether you have a handful of employees or up to 250 employees. The software is designed to be user-friendly and easy to navigate, even for those with limited HR experience.

Sage HR is ideal for companies with fewer than 250 employees whereas Sage People is ideal for growing multinational businesses with 250-5,000 employees.  

Both are designed to be long-lasting systems, and both solutions give you the fundamentals of workforce management: HR statistics, workforce planning, absence management, timesheets, performance reviews, fast reporting, and hiring. 

What our customers say about Sage HR

Sage HR has been a time saving change for our company. We no longer are emailing paystubs.  We have fewer emails to respond to for time off requests.  Being able to login to Sage HR and address all employees’ time off requests at once has also been a time saver.
