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.

Pros

  • Allowance hours tracking
  • Time tracking
  • FMLA tracking
No photo available
  • The timekeeping feature in Kronos Workforce Ready is easy for anyone to use, from supervisor to staff level, and also for a multitude of employee types.
  • Kronos Workforce Ready allows us to process payroll in less than one day - compared to three full days with the last software we used!
  • Being able to send email notifications for expiring credentials, as well as creating a customized to-do checklist for employees is a really helpful tool.

Cons

  • The system could be set up for easier transfer of hours and accruals into other ADP products.

  • We would like to see better support. We ended up configuring it as needed even though we were trying to work with the KWR implementation team to get configuration done, we were not able to supply all the needed items in a timely manner so we ended up doing it ourselves as we had to pull information from our payroll team of 3 with 99 years combined experience - could have used some help with change management!
  • They have added a middleware tool that will allow us to submit and process files more efficiently, we are just implementing this but are excited to see some improvement as to the way the data is moved and secured.
  • I'd like to see more engagement from Kronos when implementing and I do not think we use their support as we feel we are strong in understanding what we have and how it is configured, however if we lose our support person in HRIS who is the main admin, we will be looking to Kronos for guidance and I'm not sure they would know how to give it since we did the configuration and made all the interfaces on our own.

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 eTIME5.0
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.

I like the tracking system that documents all questions and responses. The timing of response is generally pretty good - within a day, but if there is something critical to processing a payroll that day - be ready to make executive decisions to "guess" and fix it later. So far most of our support issues have resulted in "a glitch in the program that will be escalated" or a workaround to force accurate calculations, but [support is] unable to explain why certain errors/changes occurred.

Alternatives Considered

I have not used other software like ADP eTime, and I did not have a choice in selecting eTime.

We looked at several other HR/Payroll solutions before deciding on Kronos Workforce Ready. I cannot remember the names of any of them, but Kronos seemed to be the most user friendly and complete

Return on Investment

  • Since I was an employee using the software, rather than someone managing the software, I can't say how it compares to other possible solutions. As an individual user it was sometimes convenient and often frustrating, but I'm not sure whether this reflects the experience of my supervisors, the payroll administrator, and/or the College overall.

  • We no longer need to maintain a stock of unused time cards and no longer need to store used time cards since this is a paperless system. In addition it is easier and faster to find historical data.
  • Problems with employees time (missed punches for example) can be corrected more quickly (at any time) instead of at the end of a pay period when managers may not remember what actually took place in the no longer recent past.
  • There is no concern for employees clocking other employees in (accidentally or otherwise) since we opted to utilize the optional biometric fingerprint readers.
