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.

Kronos Workforce Ready

Kronos Workfoce Ready is well suited for employers with a large group of hourly employees and a desire to reduce paper and have an easily managed web based interface. For employers with only salaried employees it would not likely be appropriate.

Pros

  • Allows varied types of time.
  • The system handles very well the varied over time, pay and holiday rules we have in place.
  • Easy to use by both employees/students and their supervisors.

  • The cloud based service has a good track record of reliability. We have seen few outages and when they occurred they were resolved quickly.
  • Managers appreciate the ability to monitor time punches remotely. They are able to connect using any PC or cell phone with a web browser.
  • The time clocks are responsive and run efficiently. In addition, they seem to be durable and don't have the mechanical issues that are present with time clocks that use paper cards.

Cons

  • Java has been a problem for us. We recently converted to the 'Java free' version and although it works well, I do miss a few of the aspects of the 'Java' version we had previously.

  • The implementation was rough. Granted, we were one of the first clients to transition, so I'm hopeful our frustrations and stalls helped the Kronos team develop a stronger implementation program.
  • Document upload could use some finesse. Right now, documents uploaded in an employee's profile are listed in the order they were uploaded. I haven't transferred my documents there because of this - I need to see them in alphabetical order or date of event. Or, at least have the option to have them in by date.
  • While Global Support is timely, receiving valuable answers wasn't always the case. Many people didn't know the answers, and frequently the result was to request an enhancement as a solution was not available.

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 think that as a full package, Kronos is a great application. It has the products and abilities needed to properly administer payroll and keep data integrity in the HRIS. I think that when using all modules, Kronos can provide a great HRIS. The only thing that seems a bit lacking in Kronos is the recruitment module. It does not have as robust tracking abilities as other systems. I wish there was more opportunity to communicate with applicants and use the system to do all recruiting tasks
