Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well1) ActiveCollab works well for small teams specifically T&M teams.Its invoicing feature is unique & can make your life easy.2) It is very easy to use & posses good range of filters like on the task list, we can drag/drop tasks, Filter by assignee's,
tasks lists, due dates, or completed tasks. 3) It has some simple but awesome features like when you're in
the middle of writing something i.e a comment on story and get interrupted,
it retains what you wrote.4) It allows you to tag team members in threads of comments to grab their attention, its really needed when teams are distributed. Thus helping team members to collaborate easily & stay on same page.5) It integrates pretty well with other web apps like quickbooks , Slack, Trello, HubSpot, Zapier etcScenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well1) Tasks can not have multiple assignee's here so if two members are working on same task it did not allow you to reflect that.2) Sorting capability is not their under invoicing3) It did not work well for larger teams4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

The platform is ideal for companies that have complex payroll issues, human resources needs, and performance management storage all in one place. It is ideal for companies that like to have a single sign on for all of their software packages, and eases the burden of having to keep paper files.

Pros

ActiveCollab

  • Great for project and task assignments, project workflow and communications.
  • Solid web-based platform that doesn't require software downloads, also includes great mobile platform.
  • Great reporting tools for managing billing, estimating, project workflow and other essential project details.
  • Allows for both the agency and its clients to interact on a single platform using role-specific permissions.
Jorden Beatty | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready)

  • The hardware is the industry best--we never hear any complaints about the card swipe machines or their usage
  • Easy synchronization with other software platforms like Nortel, NICE WFM and many more
  • User facing portal is simple to use and lets everyone keep up to date on their usage and accruals
Clinton Verley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

ActiveCollab

  • Individual comments cannot be linked to. This makes it more difficult to reference a comment or question.
  • Unnecessary features cannot be turned off. Since we use it primarily for communication, it would be ideal to turn off tasks etc. that are not needed or be able to move discussions as the first screen.
  • There isn't an easy way to set up different projects under the same client.
Nancy Ross | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready)

  • The tax piece of Kronos was the one thing that has made me slightly regret my decision to use Kronos. We have 7 EINs so we have a lot of taxes to file on a quarterly basis. The BSI system we have to use (which is a third party) is terrible. We have had nothing but problems with it. BSI has some agreement with Kronos that doesn't allow us to speak directly with BSI and it's extremely frustrating. We are on our 5th quarter of filing using the BSI system and are still having issues. This is not much of an automated process and the BSI system seems so far behind Kronos' technology. It's not user-friendly and has definitely caused a lot of issues. If there was one thing I would change about Kronos it would be the tax filing portion. Maybe if we didn't have to use BSI it would be different. The systems I have used in the past have processed our quarterly taxes for us so this was a big change for me.
  • I do not like that the system allows employees to request vacation time that they may not have available. Employees can request time off even if they don't have any vacation available and if their supervisor approves it, it populates in their timecard. I have caught several employees with negative vacation balances in the system. I think it should not allow them to request this time off if they don't have a current balance in the system.
  • When you terminate an employee, their benefits don't automatically terminate. You have to go into each active benefit and put the termination date in or your reports won't be correct. This should be something that automatically occurs once you terminate that employee.

We have begun looking for other vendors to supply this products need as Kronos WFR cannot deliver the suite of applications which it should with this product.*6/5/17 Edit - We started the new year with a new application. WFR proved to be unable to correct the errors within the application. We are much happier with the new application as we can use it effectively.

WFR is very customizable. Only a few things are off limits....surprisingly the most basic screen, the employee time sheet, IS NOT able to be changed. Almost every screen/report users can add/remove fields. Menu setup is fairly easy with the exception multiple versions of a report CANNOT be directly linked to. They are supposed to be updating this in a future release but at the moment it is cumbersome for users to switch to different versions of the report.

The system seems very stable. Being hosted in the cloud, we are vulnerable to internet speeds and busy times. The system has been down a couple times over the 3 months we have been live, but Kronos resolved the issues very quickly. To have access from a desktop, tablet, time clock, or phone app is one of the best features....users have almost NO REASON they can't clock in.

We were always told that Kronos was the best, but there are reports that we got out of ADP and other payroll providers that we cannot get out of Kronos. One example is a report of Productive/Non-productive hours by department. We also need the dollar amount associated with the hours. This is information that is required on our cost report and we were told that that report is unavailable. It is very frustrating when I can't get what I need.

The support team is responsive to requests and their annual support fees are reasonable. Honestly, we don't have to contact them much. Updates happen automatically and the platform is very solid and does not require a lot of support. Documentation is good and the platform is easy to learn.

We did not get much support when we were trying to implement. We felt like we were the only company with requirements for both Canada and the US and this seemed odd to us because North America is the most common place it was implemented. We found there was no integration with our source system so this made us have to create files so we can update members by position and make sure the right managers are in place for each group. We were not able to produce the requirements in a timely manner and we were not treated respectfully by the project manager from Kronos at the time

Lots & lots of training available. Timing was wrong for our organization. We had lengthy down time in the beginning while the implementation consultant setup our system. We did online training then. Difficult to train on a generic system setup that isn't your industry and hard to understand what you are learning how to do w/o actually being in your system. Online training was well documented and the instructors were very knowledgeable.

DO NOT attempt to go live too quickly. Sales sold us on 100 days from contract signing was doable. We postponed go live 3 times because everything was not ready. We did not have enough time document the new functionality & train end users. Almost 3 months later we are still working through export issues, minor setup issues, adequate time for system admins to get comfortable with the system.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCollab

I have used multiple project management platforms such as ActiveCollab, JIRA, Trello, etc. Trello has great visualization with their (Kanban Board) board system and support drag and drop functionality for managing tasks. ActiveCollab, however, does not have the fancy visualization, but is very powerful when it comes to ticketing, task management, task delegation, time tracking, etc.
Ali Zakeri | TrustRadius Reviewer

In comparison to the previous payroll system, Kronos is 150% better in user friendliness, time tracking, data exporting and updates for changes as implemented. There are webinars scheduled by Kronos to make the users aware of changes and improvements to the system and technical support to assist with issues as they arise. The old system had technical support but they made the changes that were needed and took time to make those changes. By contrast, Kronos technical support walks us through the process to make the changes and empowers us to make the changes adhoc.

Return on Investment

ActiveCollab

  • It has saved us a TON of money (literally thousands) in project management software.
  • It has helped us gain clients because we can show them the template of what they will see and give them access to it. When others don't have software that does this.
  • Positive impact on ROI based on the time it's saving compared to our previous PM software.
Chris Lesner | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready)

  • Kronos Workforce Ready has had a very positive impact on our organization. We set up notices that go to the managers to alert them if an employee shows up late for work or comes in late after lunch. It also alerts the manager if an employee is approaching overtime hours. This has helped our bottom line greatly.
  • Kronos Workforce Ready has reduced the number of payroll errors and increased productivity by having the timekeeping module flow directly into the payroll module. We used to have them hand send in paper time sheets which we had to key into the old payroll system. That took a lot of time and there was ample opportunity for mistakes.
