What is Sage HR?

Created on  | Last modified on 


Sage HR is a fantastic cloud based human resources management solution that helps you track, manage and engage your employees remotely, as easily as you do in the office.


The Sage HR modules let you integrate workforce management and provides the tools you need to automate repetitive tasks. 

Give your employees instant and remote access to everything they need with an individual login to Sage HR. Control access by setting permission levels, to protect sensitive information.

NOTE: Sage HR is available as a standalone product or can be added alongside Sage HR Online Services, the free online payslips portal that comes with Sage 50cloud Payroll.

I have Sage HR Online Services, is that not Sage HR?

Not quite. Sage HR Online Services is the free online payslips portal that integrates with Sage 50cloud Payroll, where employees can log in and view their payslips and P60s online. Sage HR is just the HR modules listed below in this guide that help make your day to day HR processes much easier. You won't have the Sage HR modules until you choose to add them alongside your Online Services. The modules are totally optional to subscribe to, they are just there for you if and when you want to use them. All of them you can trial first too! - Read more >

If you don't have or don't need Sage HR Online Services, you can still get Sage HR as a standalone product.
