It's perfect for pulling tax related salary info in seconds. Sometimes figuring out different tax rates and amounts for customers can be lengthy, ADP makes this simple with this tool.

Kronos Workforce Ready

Administration and accounting for employees to input their hours. As long as an employee can have the training, then they can go in and input their hours. However, Kronos can be slow and it can be confusing without the training needed to input the hours. Otherwise, once you have the training it's very self-explanatory

Pros

  • It captures the exceptions, so if you want to drill down to get answers as to where and why you are getting overtime; look at the exceptions.
  • The exceptions tell you where and what employees are clocking in/out early, late or on an unscheduled shift. Which again helps drill down to see where overtime is generated.
  • It gives you the options to check time-cards on a specific date range if you need to go back into the history.

  • The timekeeping feature in Kronos Workforce Ready is easy for anyone to use, from supervisor to staff level, and also for a multitude of employee types.
  • Kronos Workforce Ready allows us to process payroll in less than one day - compared to three full days with the last software we used!
  • Being able to send email notifications for expiring credentials, as well as creating a customized to-do checklist for employees is a really helpful tool.

Cons

  • Some improvements to interface could be done to make it easier to use
  • Better documentation showing what it can do
Ryan Husbands, MBA, CPA profile photo
  • Kronos Workforce Ready could be a little bit more compatible with Apple products.
  • An easy, more useful app would be great to help encourage our employees to use Kronos.
  • More customization when it comes to personnel file categories would be nice.

We have begun looking for other vendors to supply this products need as Kronos WFR cannot deliver the suite of applications which it should with this product.*6/5/17 Edit - We started the new year with a new application. WFR proved to be unable to correct the errors within the application. We are much happier with the new application as we can use it effectively.

Usability

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.

While some tasks such as updating an employee's basic info, password, and approver preferences are very easy to do and straightforward (all combined on a single employee maintenance page and updateable through a single 'save'), other items prove to be more cumbersome such as navigating through multiple layers of employees when you are up higher in management with more system rights

I believe there is too much downtime. Single sign-on has been down 2 times in last 5 days. This downtime has occurred many times in the past 6 months. Many topics mentioned in the user guides have not enough information to use the functionality.

We did not get much support when we were trying to implement. We felt like we were the only company with requirements for both Canada and the US and this seemed odd to us because North America is the most common place it was implemented. We found there was no integration with our source system so this made us have to create files so we can update members by position and make sure the right managers are in place for each group. We were not able to produce the requirements in a timely manner and we were not treated respectfully by the project manager from Kronos at the time

Online Training

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

It was the complete package. Resources & support were best in marketplace.
Ryan Husbands, MBA, CPA profile photo
Timesheets are infinitely more accurate in WFR. The first basic requirement of a timesheet should be to reflect completely what is paid on a given paycheck period. The timesheet has to be simple enough for all employees to be able to view and see how the pay from the time system matches to the pay in their paycheck whether it's calculated using the same software or if integrated with another payroll software. Kronos Workforce Ready does this well.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: allows us to use one system of recording time card information versus manually submitting time card information. This helps captures turn labor cost while the manual way had too many room for errors.
  • Negative: if you forget to archive a termed employee, you will still be charged a fee.
  • Negative: when you terminate an employee, it does not automatically cancel out the recurring schedule, so you have to manually update this yourself. Soft cost that could be avoided.

  • Ability to generate OT reports and monitor OT more timely.
  • Has reduced payroll errors as long as timesheets are checked prior to processing.
