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.

Unanet

Unanet is particularly well suited to the government contracting space. It could better support businesses that build products even if it meant integrating with a third party product.

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.

  • Near real-time visibility into project financials. As soon as the employees save their time for the day, you can get a good measure of project financial performance. Work authorizations are embedded into Unanet so unintentional overruns are virtually eliminated.
  • Nice integration with the Joint Travel Regulations. It is easy to import the latest rate tables for both CONUS and OCONUS destinations.
  • Good customer support and highly responsive. Webinars on new features are free and broadcast on a regular basis. Feedback to suggestions for new features are addressed in a very timely fashion.
  • It is easy to structure Unanet to support DCAA practices to be able to get approval for cost plus jobs.
  • With exports to .csv files, it is easy to extract data for further analysis beyond the relatively rich built-in reporting features.

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.

  • We have timesheets set up on a monthly basis. Staff may work on anywhere from a few to 20 or more different projects in a month. The timesheet does not allow you to freeze columns or rows, so as the sheet takes up more than the screen it can be confusing to stay on the correct line.
  • The approval process for time and expenses is challenging. Any change initiated by one project manager requires every project manager associated with the timesheet to have to re-approve. This waste a lot of time my very busy leadership team could use elsewhere.
  • As long as timesheets are entered correctly, i.e. staff are selecting the exact right project to record their time, information flows to the customer billing process easily. If they don't changes are time consuming and cumbersome to make.
  • There were a lot of things we found out the hard way that I thought the implementation team could have warned us about. For example, we gave all our projects a 10-digit code. The number of digits was great. The fact that some of the codes then start with "0" is. When you export from Unanet you get a CSV file. CSV files drop the leading "0" from the worksheet. So if you make a change to a large group of projects that should be easy, you have to correct all those project codes by adding the "0" back or Unanet can't match it up. When I'm dealing with hundreds of lines on a worksheet that is a problem. The implementation team should have warned me about that.

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

Lisa Steinbach profile photo
I evaluated several options and narrowed my search to Unanet, Big Time, Journyx, and Harvest. I had a demonstration by all but three (one did not offfer a demonstration that fit my needs) and I made a comparison worksheet of the features, costs, implementation time, support, integration with our existing finance software, and portability. We then made a final decision by committee that Unanet was the best fit for our needs and expectations

Return on Investment

  • Positive - by having employees/students record hours worked on a daily basis we now have accurate information and no duplication.
Lisa Steinbach profile photo
  • It's probably too early to fairly answer this question. Exporting and Importing billing information has reduced the time spent in creating customer invoices. Which presumably leads to shorter collection time. This frees up more time during the accounting cycle for other activities. I'm hoping that as we further use Unanet's capabilities we will see a marked improvement in the billing process.
  • Once staff got comfortable with Unanet, there was an increase in job satisfaction. Staff reported the system was easy to learn and use. Staff use it to submit request PTO so the one-stop-shop works for them.
  • We're still working on reports, but this was one of the features we liked about Unanet when we made the decision to purchase it. I'm excited about real time reporting capabilities in Unanet. It will allow project managers to more effectively assign and track resources applied to individual projects, practice leaders to measure profitability by person, product line, customer, or any manner of criteria, and assist the executive team in making fully informed business decisions.
