ADP ezLaborManager

[ADP is well suited for] Smaller agencies with a regular payroll and not a complex payroll. Users must be familiar with databases, reporting, etc. as system is not as user friendly as we would like. The cost is also a factor especially as the basic system does not include other features such as performance management, dashboards, etc. I was hoping to have access to the dashboards. Reporting should also provide more sample reports

Harvest

We have a client > Project > task style system at work where contacts are based on hours spent by a cross-functional team. Harvest is able to organize our hours by client, project, task, user, etc. This way, we can pull reports on time spent by function, by project, etc -- which is extremely helpful to measure over/under burn against our contracts.We also use Harvest as part of our expense tracking, and similar to the time tracking, it's sleek and easy to use. Even the less-tech-savvy people in our office have easily mastered Harvest.

Pros

  • Reports are Excel exportable.
  • Tracks the hours for ACA.
  • The reports are a great asset in the reconciliation of our outside staffing companies.

  • Easy to use time tracking
  • They have probably the best/simplest app out there.
  • Their export features on timing are great for sending out invoices and keeping track of what's billable and not billable.

Cons

  • The Time off Requests feature is limited, if an employee requests time in April for July, and in June the employee reports to someone new the system does not update the request to the new manager, it is still sent to old manager.
  • In the 2.0 Work Force Now, ezLaborManager allowed you to add a note to the day but in the 10.0 version you may only add a note to the time sheet not the day.
  • Reports cannot be customized to incorporate data from other areas such as payroll and HR.

  • I would like to see better integration between quickbooks and harvest. I have to create a harvest invoice and then copy to quickbooks but when that is finally paid, none of that info transfers to harvest so I have a ton of "unpaid" invoices in harvest.
  • It would nice if my team could request to be part of a project. There are many times I have a team member jump on a project but then they enter their time in the wrong place because they didn't have access to the project. If they could click a button to request access and I get an email that I can approve them with, it would help things a ton.

Usability

ADP ezLaborManager7.0
Based on 1 answer
ADP is a good system to track information but, what it lacks is just some detail that provides time savings. Some instances they have made "updates" that tend to have been better previous to those "updates." One example is for staff to see how they have used their time off in the past. There should be an easy way to report and review such other than looking at pay periods. Pay statement and review and totals can also improve.

Online Training

ADP ezLaborManager8.0
Based on 1 answer
The training provided was based on a generic database and reporting which made it difficult to compare when you had your own database to work at. It also didn't provide good written materials that would be useful after the training session. It was more geared towards the practice tests or applications within the training.

Alternatives Considered

Again, since we have not used anything in the past, I can not compare one product to the other.

The Harvest UI was much simpler. The others felt like they had too much going on and setting up and maintaining was confusing. Harvest's interface is very straightforward and easy enough for a non-techie to set up for their business. Toggl was the closest competitor and looked a bit more modern but when I began using it, I found it was limiting in some areas that Harvest stood out.

Return on Investment

  • Overtime has been reduced as we now have the ability to review it without a time crunch following receipt of paper timecards.
  • Payroll is more accurate as all the calculations are made within the system leaving less room for human error or abuse by the employee.
  • Staff have more access to technology with use of lap tops and feel more comfortable with some of the self service features available.
  • Communication of employee information has improved with use of the home page portal.

  • Our firm is able to track how much time we're spending on particular projects and objectives using Harvest.
  • I hear that Harvest has good reporting functionality.
