SQL Server and Visual FoxPro are two databases presently supported by Microsoft. Microsoft developed SQL Server to be its high-end database for the Window’s environment. They had purchased Visual FoxPro, originally designed for the DOS operating system. SQL Server is a robust all-purpose database that can continue to expand as your company grows. You are able to add more users by upgrading the hardware—a recent benchmark test supported up to 4,600 users.
Your data is protected from unauthorized access by integrating network security with server security. Since there is user level security, users can have restricted access to the data records.
SQL Server processes requests from users and sends only the requested results. This minimizes information transmitted over a network.
Maintenance is easy on SQL Server. Both changes to the data structure and system back up are allowed while the server is active.
Sage HRMS on a SQL server is scalable, designed for organizations with anywhere from 50 to over 10,000 employees.

Employee Self-Service and Payroll Updates

New functionality is available in Sage HRMS including the ability to quickly and easily search for employees by entering the first few digits of an employee’s ID, first name, or last name; the ability to hide inactive or expired HR/employee codes; and additional user security features.
Enhanced Reporting Functionality
Easily create custom SAP Crystal Reports and ad hoc reports for any payroll and HR information in the program.
Automated SQL Migration for Sage HRMS Streamlines Payroll Conversion
Payroll Comparison Tool
ASM allows you and your team to spend your valuable time validating the results of your HR and Payroll testing and eliminates the time required on maintaining employee data in two systems. Run it in the morning and do a parallel payroll after lunch. There’s no need to search for differences in the parallel.
Using Delphia’s tools and experienced migration team, migration projects can be significantly shorter with phased payroll go-lives and improved ability to test employee data.
ASM compares each line of the Abra Suite paycheck to the parallel in SQL, filters out what agrees, and provides a concise report listing only the differences. When the root causes of the differences have been corrected, just start the process over.
