ADP Enterprise eTIME

Well suited for situations in which individuals may be largely self-monitored and need to log irregular hours for company records. Also well suited for situations in which individuals may hold multiple positions within an organization.

Administration and accounting for employees to input their hours. As long as an employee can have the training, then they can go in and input their hours. However, Kronos can be slow and it can be confusing without the training needed to input the hours. Otherwise, once you have the training it's very self-explanatory

Pros

ADP Enterprise eTIME

  • Ability to clock hours without a physical time clock/punchcard -- great for jobs like tutoring, which may not have a central meeting location
  • Ability to clock hours for multiple positions in different departments across an organization -- one paycheck, even though I had multiple supervisors and different pay rates

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

Cons

ADP Enterprise eTIME

  • ADP Workforce Now and enhanced eTime do not work well together. Constant data flow issues between each system.
  • Chronic downtime.
  • Reports not matching between two different employees running it at the same time.
  • Tickets remain open for months at a time. When they identify the problem, they say it could be two-six months for a roll out patch.
  • You can no longer get a dedicated rep. When you have an issue you have to explain it over and over again.

Kronos Workforce Ready

  • Workforce Ready could be improved in the notifications where the intent is to notify the recipient when a task that is scheduled to be completed is still undone. When creating a rule for a follow up notification, the system does not check to see if the task was already performed before sending out the notification.
  • Another area when WFR could be improved is in the payroll processing of time sheets. The system does not issue a warning indicating there are timesheets that are incomplete until the time is synced to process the pay statements. It would be more helpful if the warning was issued in the managing time module before transferring the time to the payroll processing module.
  • The reporting is great but there have been several times when a report did not function as it should. After contacting technical support for assistance, there have been a number of times when the case manager was unable to assist and the item remained open. Technical support should be able to explain why the report is not functioning and provide a solution or work around and that is not always the case.

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.

Usability

ADP Enterprise eTIME

ADP Enterprise eTIME 5.0
Based on 1 answer
In some ways, the flexibility of eTime makes it much more usable than some time card systems. I can log my own hours at my convenience (as long as it is during the pay period), and eTime sends me a reminder email 24 hours before the cut-off for each pay period. I can log hours for multiple positions using particular pay codes, although there is no way for me to save frequently used or "my" pay codes -- adding this feature would be a much-appreciated improvement to eTime's usability. Juggling multiple pay codes within the current system, however, is cumbersome. There can also be problems if an incorrect or overlapping hour is accidentally entered and saved -- certain fields turn red and are difficult to adjust, often requiring the help of a software administrator. Correcting other errors and entering historical hours is extremely difficult, and the software does not work well on some browsers (and it is unattractive when I have been able to get it to work)

While some tasks such as updating an employee's basic info, password, and approver preferences are very easy to do and straightforward (all combined on a single employee maintenance page and updateable through a single 'save'), other items prove to be more cumbersome such as navigating through multiple layers of employees when you are up higher in management with more system rights

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.

In general Kronos customer service is great. The response time is minimal for critical issues. The staff is knowledgeable about the product and can usually resolve the issue quickly.

Alternatives Considered

ADP Enterprise eTIME

Overall user-friendliness and employee base survey resulted in the conclusion that it is NOT a good fit for our employee base. When viewing in depth other vendors, the time keeping features are lightyears ahead of ADP Enterprise eTIME.

Kronos Workforce Ready

Initially, we decided with WFR over Paycor as we had Kronos' time and attendance module in WFC. Kronos does a great job of managing time and attendance but an absolute horrible job of anything else. Were we to know this before we made the selection we would have chosen Paycor

Return on Investment

ADP Enterprise eTIME

  • The lack of help and guidance during implementation lead to learning curves taking up time.
  • The Time Off requesting has to be explained over and over again. Again, taking up valuable time.

Kronos Workforce Ready

  • It has improved payroll errors.
  • Time saver.
  • Ability for all employees, managers, supervisors to all have access to the system at different security levels.
