ADP Enterprise eTIME

I would choose ADP eTIME anywhere outside of manufacturing and hospital settings. It is very flexible, but would not be my first choice for those settings. 24 hour per day timekeeping and scheduling are handled well in this system.

I would say that it's completely great for simple things. Accessing your paystubs, looking at your current information, verifying easy changes like address, name changes, etc.. that works great. I would say that Paychex feels limited with it's functionality on the end user side, however it isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you're trying to stay lean and light for a system, I'd highly recommend it. If you need more in depth functionality from a payroll system, it seems like other solutions would be better.

Pros

  • Once the pay rules, access, time entry method, etc. is set-up correctly, the system accurately calculates time, PTO, OT, shift differentials, etc.
  • Entering punches, pay codes is easy for employees to use.
  • Approving time cards for managers is easy.

  • It is easy to use!
  • Before you submit payroll, you can run a report to easily check that you have entered everything correctly. This feature has been invaluable.
  • Peace of mind when it comes to taxes. Paychex withholds all the appropriate taxes for both the employee and employer and then files them when the appropriate government entries. Our business is located in Ohio, which has a complex tax structure including both state and local taxes. Paychex has saved me so much time and stress.
  • I have been impressed by the customer service. I have a dedicated payroll specialist who I can contact with any questions I have. She has always been very helpful any time I have had weird situations or questions.

Cons

  • Reports and client ability to modify
  • Client services - should have a dedicated group to call...
No photo available
  • It would be great if there was an online financial planning components, questionnaires that help you set targets and goals and a dashboard that showed you if you were on trqck
  • A lot of paperwork needed to be completed by hand, it would have been great to have online forms so you don’t have to print, scan and email
  • The overall online platform is cumbersome. It’s not easy to navigate and not at all intuitive

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)

It works for me and takes all the stress out of payroll. They also do all the reporting.

I was not here when the decision was made to move to the Paychex Flex system. I had used Paychex as a payroll processing company at a previous job, so it has been interesting and beneficial to see the other things they can offer. It is also a much better team behind it than just the payroll side at Paychex.
