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

As someone managing staff I am extremely happy with Kronos as the primary timekeeping system for my organization. As an employee myself, I too utilize Kronos for vacation requests, and this is painless and easy for both myself and my own manager to approve paid leave. As a clinical entity, there is a huge variation in schedules among teams, and Kronos has the ability to capture and accommodate all of them. The numerous pay codes that can be set up and easily selected is wonderful for our financial leaders to review productivity, overtime, and patient/non-patient time on clinical units. As with many of the tools I use, Kronos would be overkill for even a small organization that can easily bill or manually track hours.

Pros

  • Ease of use: This system was particularly easy to use for employees, managers, and administrators. The user-friendly interface and straightforward design helped make accessing and using it that much easier.
  • Viewing: For employees clocking in the system it was easy to clock in/out and also see totals of each week worked along with totals in month/year and vacation accruals.
  • Reporting: This option for administrators was very beneficial and fairly simple to run for novice users.
  • Administrator: The ability to view all partners, edit any employee as needed and ease of making changes in a short period of time.

  • It gave me real time reporting so that I could see if we were on track to have excessive overtime usage so that we could call in other employees to utilize instead of paying out overtime pay
  • KRONOS made it easy to track trends for employees who abused our call off procedures. We would take historical reports to see if someone had a habit of calling off every other Friday, or the day after payday and so forth.
  • KRONOS allowed us to track people clocking in or out too soon or clocking in late or staying over in the break areas on the clock to gain extra non-approved work time.

Cons

  • Appearance: The website visual appearance could use a more 21st-century upgrade. It seemed plain and dull but that also helped as some systems are not easy to follow if too much is going on in the web page.

  • User Interface: It could be a bit more update for modern UI. It feels like an old database, and although it is easy to learn, it would be less intimidating if it looked and felt more up to date.
  • Searching for multiple dates for a specific employee would be cumbersome and we would have to write down parts, versus adding them on the fly.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

ADP exLaborManager - I prefer ADP over the Paycor and Aon Hewitt timecard applications. This software was more user friendly, had easier access, reporting, and tracking hours than the others I have used. I am not saying the others are horrible, just that ADP was more simplistic to use and administer than the others.

I've worked with this when it was called e-time. Nowhere near as good as Kronos.

Return on Investment

  • The time savings from having to calculate the vacation, sick, bereavement was well worth the cost of this software.
  • We were able to login once to ADP to then use ezLaborManager which helped save time from having to login multiple times and having to use different shortcuts to access the websites/modular.

  • We are more productive because Kronos is not time consuming.
  • Our timecards are more accurate.
  • Shows how much PTO we have left
