actiTIME

ActiTime is a perfect program for managing payments and expenses within the company. It is an ideal tool to manage the activity of employees and the time they devote to their daily tasks within the company. ActiTime is undoubtedly recommended for its excellent performance in generating reports and the quality of its production. If anything could improve this tool it is its interface as it has become a bit outdated.

Paychex Flex

Because Paychex Flex cost is based on the number of employees, it was a great fit for our small nonprofit. It takes some of the burdens off of my position, so that I may focus on meeting the needs of our mission and reaching out to our community. I would highly suggest giving Paychex Flex a try regardless of the size of your business.

Pros

actiTIME

  • Reporting is awesome! Easy to put together custom reports and then export them. Real-time reports.
  • Check out all its brilliant integrations.
  • It lets you upload your company logo in the tool.
  • Managing users, clients, projects, and tasks is easy and the UX makes data input fluent and smooth.
  • There's a mobile app, it's limited, but there is one.
  • Reports dashboard: you can save your favorite custom reports for easy access.
  • Estimations vs actual reports and email notifications are brilliant for keeping an eye on projects.

Paychex Flex

  • Paychex Flex does an exemplary job with handling Payroll. Our organization has full-time employee's as well as contractor's and we never have an issue with payroll.
  • Insurance renewal process is painless.
  • Another plus to using Paychex Flex is the customer support. Questions and/or inquiries are handled promptly and in a timely manner.

Cons

actiTIME

  • This application can be complex to use for new users.
  • ActiTime should further update its mobile application.
Eric Mendoza | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paychex Flex

  • It's difficult to update user emails and user phone numbers after they have been set
  • The performance management system could use some quality of life improvements like viewing previous reviews while completing a new review or allowing a manager to view the self-review of an employee while completing the manager review.
  • For the issues and incidents section, it would be great if system admins could submit a new case like a workplace injury or near-miss without having to tag an employee in the case. Sometimes we just want to add the information into Flex for recordkeeping purposes and for generating 300A forms at the end of the year.

overall we have had good experience. when problems occur paychex is quick to resolve the problems; however when encountering recurring problems and issues it doesn't matter how quickly they are resolved they should re-occur. Paychex will price match competitor's quotes.

I would like to see more flexible reporting features; not enough "live" reports for my liking. I'd love to be able to pull a YTD report at my discretion without needing to contact my account manager, as one is furnished with our weekly payroll reports.

We have not experienced any difficulties with unplanned outages. Notifications are always made for outages, and they do not effect normal business operations.

Unless there is lag time within the internet, the Paychex Flex website loads exceptional fast, pages load quickly and reports that I need to print or download load quickly. If I need to create a specialized report, once I complete it I receive an e-mail telling me my report is ready to be downloaded. Changing between web pages is fast as well.

It has quality support, solving any problem quickly, and clarifying any doubt that arises. It works very well and has quick and detailed answers, the quality of service in this sense is impeccable. ActiTime offers an online chat by which you can solve most of the problems almost immediately.

Our organization had a rocky start converting to Paychex Flex and the support team made some errors. It took me over 30 hours in Paychex Flex to make the corrections. We still struggle with getting accurate information sometimes from our support staff even after the conversion

Just make sure you have your in-house data collected and organized before you start. It would be helpful to put together a questionnaire to solicit all of the needed information.

ActiTIme is the first software application I have used that was not developed in-house, so it's actually great in comparison, I love it.

Paychex Flex takes care of all the reporting to the various tax reporting agencies, which gives me peace of mind that everything is being taken care of. ADP also does the same thing, but Paychex Flex is a little easier to be in contact with as they are always available. Quickbooks allows you to do your own reporting, but in the event of a mistake, Paychex Flex does accept responsibility and the liability if the mistake was theirs. I have not had a mistake from them yet, but I do know they will cover the liability if they do. That is total peace of mind for me.

Employees can log in at home and get up to date information on their FSA balance and any medical bill reimbursements they may have uploaded. At renewal time they have the ability to make changes to their FSA or for new employees star the enrollment.

Return on Investment

actiTIME

  • We can estimate projects, track them and create reports so we can have visibility of tasks and budget. It's so easy.
  • It allows us to justify labor by attaching ActiTime reports to our invoices for actual worked hours.
  • We're guarded: labor is justified and documented, in case of escalations or postmortem investigations.
Roy Zumbado Cognuchz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paychex Flex

  • Improved time management where I can email folks every other week and people enter in their time.
  • It's been difficult when Jewish holidays get in the way as we are closed for those holidays. As long as I tell my rep in time, I won't get charged if having to submit payroll late, but I should be able to just submit when the holidays are at one point during the year and not have to email a week or so before each time it happens (it doesn't happen often, but it would be nice).
  • It's a consistent system we use across the board so it's equitable.
