I think it is well suited as long as the locations where an employee is allowed to clock in and out are tightly monitored by job title to prevent persons from clocking in/out while on their commute or when they are absent

It's well suited for employees that just punch in/out regularly and do not have the responsibility for reviewing their own time or the desire to look into their accrual details. The basic punching and ability to create multiple layers of department structure is great.

Pros

  • I am impressed with the layout of mobile solutions. It is very simple to read and use.
  • I am looking forward to giving our techs access to clock in and out as they complete jobs on their routes to give a more accurate view of time spent driving and time spent at a customer's location.
  • Giving employees mobile access to their own pay statements, W2's allows them to deal directly with loan-mortgage companies when applying for a loan or doing their taxes.

  • Their reporting is very easy to use once you learn where to pull the information. With that said, to really customize the report, it needs to be exported to Excel to get it down to the information you really want. Some reporting in other solutions is not as user friendly.
  • They offer a lot of flexibility and personalization that can be done with labeling and what is tracked (and able to report on those areas.) You can arrange the screens and what appears on them easily as well.
  • It is pretty powerful with the amount of information that can be stored and is very flexible.

Cons

  • Since our company would like to use this tool for their techs, it would be nice if there was bar code reader (or something similar) so they tie their time card with our serv suite pest management technology.
  • I would like for the mobile app to give the individual the ability to send in address / phone number changes.

  • Customer service is cumbersome. You cannot just call and talk with someone which is a challenge when you are in the middle of doing something, hit a roadblock and have to wait to get a call back in an unspecified time frame. Then they can't always help. Also, if you get help and it didn't work or have an additional question on the same issue, it is difficult to get back to the same person. Often times they tell you to submit a new request.
  • Even with reporting being easy and being able to pull any information that is input, it isn't as customizable in the system and you need to export it to get the information how you want it. It is difficult to find where the report is that has the information you would like.
  • More training should be offered after a company has implemented and used it for a while. You get training upfront but you only get in the basics because everything is new. More training after 6 months or one year of use would be helpful to get the advance features and use the system more efficiently. This would also make it more valuable if we knew how to utilize it more, better and more efficiently.

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.

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

We were always told that Kronos was the best, but there are reports that we got out of ADP and other payroll providers that we cannot get out of Kronos. One example is a report of Productive/Non-productive hours by department. We also need the dollar amount associated with the hours. This is information that is required on our cost report and we were told that that report is unavailable. It is very frustrating when I can't get what I need.

This is a nice system and does more than most full featured HR systems. However, you will often find yourself fighting the system because of strange restrictions on where data can flow.

Alternatives Considered

I have not used another mobile solution...But I am impressed with this one. At age 52 if I find it easy to use then it must be very intuitive.

I've never worked with a dedicated HRIS system before, so I can't really rate it against others. I come from a medical office background and we always just used our Patient Management system that had a small HR feature. I like having it as a stand-alone HRIS system and not have to use another system that has been adapted for HR.

Return on Investment

  • We have not had real test of the impact yet since we have not been able to roll out to our pest management techs.
  • I believe that if we keep trying to educate our employees on how to access and use the mobile solutions app we will see more positive feedback because of the ease of access to their information.
Yvette Calhoun profile photo
  • Less payroll errors
  • Our HR department has been able to go paperless
  • We are able to do more with less people in our HR department
  • We are able to better monitor hours and overtime at each of our locations
