ADP Enterprise eTIME

ADP Enterprise eTime is good for smaller employers with very few variances in policies, PTO/sick accruals, etc.

It's got its shortcomings but is still the best PM tool in my opinion

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.

  • Portfolio view is great to get a feel for how your programme is running at a glance and which areas possibly might require attention. The fact that you can customise your view by adding your own columns is another plus.
  • All project information in one tool is a big plus for me considering the amount of projects we run with. This really improves efficiency and saves me time. You have the ability to add documents to tasks, manage risks, email resources tasks due for projects they are assigned to(might need some refinement depending on your requirements), material db with costing etc.

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.

  • While the portfolio view is great is becomes difficult/cluttered with many projects. Highlighting master projects will help. Creating a tree view for master project and its sub projects would even be better.
  • Reporting is a big part of any project. While rationalplan has reports for key areas the presentation of these reports could really be improved. Make it more presentable. Add some burndown charts. I hate to compare you to MS Project but they do reporting really well in MS Project.
  • The email function is another great idea. Would be great if one had an option to either email an entire portfolio or by active project. At times I’m still scoping certain projects and if the WBS is not yet complete then this incomplete project is also communicated via email which leads to frustration in the team. You don’t always want to communicate tasks for all projects to all resources.
  • One need to be able to: Email per project
  • Email entire portfolio (as currently the case)
  • Email by resource (send pending or outstanding tasks to the resource in question)
  • Add a portfolio dashboard with graphical speed and bar charts giving you a glimpse of late projects, projects slipping, not started in progress etc., for your portfolio.

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)

Alternatives Considered

I use Multi which is the standalone platform. While there is no team collaboration it does have an email feature built in. Rational Plan does have the Server option but it all comes at a price the same as Wrike.I have used many free and commercial platforms and rationalplan multi is a good balance with features especially if some of the proposed feature requests are implemented.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - by having employees/students record hours worked on a daily basis we now have accurate information and no duplication.

  • Helps explain the target schedule and resource estimates for cost of the project
