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.

Namely

Namely is especially well-suited for small to mid-sized companies that are looking to shift core HRIS functions under a single platform. Everything works as smoothly as advertised- payroll, benefits, time and attendance, workflows, onboarding. Especially if the employee population is comfortable with social media sites; Namely's landing page functions like an internal Facebook feed.Namely might not be well-suited for companies that have a significant employee population outside of the US . We've had some issues integrating our international employees into the core HRIS and benefits modules.

Pros

  • 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

  • The HRIS platform is set up very well. It is easy to understand and our employees can figure out how to get the information they need, which cuts down on questions to the finance/HR team and reduces employee stress related to their pay and benefits.
  • The onboarding and benefits enrollment features are amazing! They are so easy to navigate and we can customize them with the forms we need for our specific employee groups. We are able to get new employee onboarded very quickly. No more paper forms!
  • Many items can be customized in payroll, including deduction codes, to what is needed without the need for a consultant to step in.
  • Custom fields can be added to the HRIS platform so that all types of info can be stored and reported on. Things like T-shirt size, license plate number and food allergies are helpful things to keep record on and the employee can edit the info as needed.
  • Workflows can be created in Namely so that Managers can request things like one-off bonuses for employees without using email. The request goes straight to the needed approver. This cuts down on back and forth and lost communication.

Cons

  • The setup is difficult for administers.
  • Mapping the pay rules to the accrual profiles, pay codes, etc., is hard to administer as well.
  • The consultants at ADP do not know the system well in some cases so getting help with setup and issues can be difficult.

  • The one piece of the onboarding process that could be automated (right now it's manual in Namely) is the tax forms for new employees and their direct deposit information. Those still have to be completed on paper and submitted manually.
  • The home feed could be a little more interactive, like being able to tag employees in posts, having emails sent to employees when someone's replied to a post, etc etc.

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)

Overall, Namely is a very user friendly platform, most of the functionality can be learned with out much training or guidance. They have designed it to be modeled similar to other social media sites interface which makes it clean in design and easy to navigate. If you do have someone at your organization that is less tech savvy, one of the most impressive parts of Namely continues to be their client support. They will support you and give guidance in every aspect if its training or just pointing out a feature and how it works

They have always (3 years worth) been extremely responsive and will escalate it on their own if they don't have an answer

Alternatives Considered

We haven't yet, but are considering moving from ADP altogether.

We chose Namely because it has the option to expand all of our services under them. Due to having so much confusion with many different vendors for everything and never knowing who the point of contact was, and employees having to remember and keep up with a bunch of different things, this was huge for us. Namely was also very responsive and accommodating for what we needed and we loved working with them!

Return on Investment

  • The system allows our employees to quickly record their time so that they can focus on their day-to-day jobs.
  • The system allows our managers to quickly approve time cards.
  • ADP Enterprise eTime does not have a sufficient query function to enable employers to easily create/schedule reports that the business needs. ADP charges high fees for custom reports.

  • We combined two software into one by moving to Namely.
  • Time off is no longer ambigous!
  • So far everyone seems to enjoy namely and it makes my job as a manager a lot easier.
