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

Kronos Workforce Central

Kronos Workforce Central is well-suited for large organizations seeking a simplified time-recording system or are trying to get away from manual timesheets being submitted. Larger organizations would see a greater return on investment while using this system. It is less appropriate for smaller organizations with fewer employees, as the cost of the system likely would be greater than the investment of the system.

Cons

ADP ezLaborManager

  • Trying to research previous time cards past a month are hard to achieve. There is a custom date range option but it rarely works, the program just sits there and doesn't pull up the custom range.
  • Pulling reports for various needs is also more difficult then it needs to be. Instead of pulling a quick report with the dates and parameters you need you have to go in and edit the report and then go back in and edit it again to return it to default settings.
  • You also have to watch your invoices and make sure you are receiving your discounts otherwise this software can be quite costly.
  • Make sure your employees bookmark the ADP ezLaborManager website, otherwise it gets difficult to find through an internet search.

Kronos Workforce Central

  • In order to keep things separated for our individual work places for some reporting we had to create multiple versions of the same report with the different location parameters.
  • There are areas that we do not use that I think would be beneficial to our company.
  • While not the fault of Kronos, we do have interfaces both into and out of Kronos, and these do sometimes cause us problems.

Once an enterprise system is purchased, configured, deployed, and accepted at a University, changing or replacing that system becomes very difficult. The sunk costs of training supervisors and employees and creating a support model become a road block for future changes. Kronos Workforce Central does its job at the University and will be the time collection system of record for the foreseeable future

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.

Having no experience with Kronos prior to using it in March 2016, their customer service team taught me how to use it the right way after my initial training at work. I am well-versed in data analysis using Excel and Access primarily, so once I discovered that Kronos had a reporting feature built in, I've used the feature quite a few times to help our properties evaluate their production costs and make good labor decisions. I give Kronos a 10 because once a person takes the time to learn how to use the software, they'll realize that Kronos is far more effective than most, and gives users more ways to access their information where and when they want to.

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.

During my tenure at my organization we've only used Kronos and have not considered moving to another application to document employee time.

Return on Investment

ADP ezLaborManager

  • 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.

  • The application has made documenting employee hours and overtime calculation user friendly. The experience in using the timeclock and PC has been a positive experience for staff.
