ADP Mobile Solutions

Since my company only uses the payroll features from ADP, I can only speak to those. I haven't had any issues with viewing pay statements and breakdowns, and I really like how there's a feature to hide the numbers when viewing your pay information, in case you don't want others near your screen seeing that information. This being said, I don't think it makes sense for a company to have different software for payroll, PTO, etc, which is what our company currently does. Since ADP allows you to have multiple features on this platform, I would recommend it for consolidating all "HR Type" features like this in one place.

Kronos Workforce Ready

Before Kronos Workforce Ready, our HR Department was manually tracking each employee's medical and license expirations. With the notification and tracking features in Kronos, a simple report helps us get a quick eye on each of these areas, as well as gives us the ability to skip sending out notifications to employees manually.

Pros

ADP Mobile Solutions

  • The mobile app is easy to use.
  • The ability to find my own information quickly is great.
  • I like the fact that I can review my own benefits and PTO balance.

Kronos Workforce Ready

  • 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

ADP Mobile Solutions

  • The password requirements are onerous.
  • It takes awhile for the UI to load.
  • I'd like to see favorites added to the selection bar. There are normally only one or two items I need to find quickly but there are several click-throughs.

  • Workforce Ready could be improved in the notifications where the intent is to notify the recipient when a task that is scheduled to be completed is still undone. When creating a rule for a follow up notification, the system does not check to see if the task was already performed before sending out the notification.
  • Another area when WFR could be improved is in the payroll processing of time sheets. The system does not issue a warning indicating there are timesheets that are incomplete until the time is synced to process the pay statements. It would be more helpful if the warning was issued in the managing time module before transferring the time to the payroll processing module.
  • The reporting is great but there have been several times when a report did not function as it should. After contacting technical support for assistance, there have been a number of times when the case manager was unable to assist and the item remained open. Technical support should be able to explain why the report is not functioning and provide a solution or work around and that is not always the case.

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.

You have to either call in or submit a support request online and wait for a response. This is cumbersome, especially when you are in the middle of something and cannot finish because you have to wait for a return call. Then when you do get the support, and have additional questions, it is another waiting time to try to get an answer from the person who helped and then be suggested to submit a new ticket. On my most recent ticket I waited 5 days for assistance

Alternatives Considered

ADP Mobile Solutions

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.

The one thing that both ADP and Paychex have is their support is immediate when you call in. Each of these products are more expensive. Paychex had some other challenges for us which is why we made a switch.

Return on Investment

ADP Mobile Solutions

  • Ability to see pay breakdown
  • Ease of access for forms
  • Ability to privately view pay statements if you're in public (ex. blur out numbers)
  • Easy to use mobile application
  • Frequent errors when using app, crashes/glitches at times

Kronos Workforce Ready

  • We have had a negative impact to managing data between WFR and our payroll system. This is due to an interface that the implementation team and KGS cannot get to operate correctly.
  • We have had a negative impact to managing employment data between WFR and our time and attendance system, which is Kronos WFC. This is due to an interface the implementation team cannot setup, which is ironic as the two systems are both operated by Kronos.
  • We have had a zero impact, labor hour wise, on onboarding as the WFR module doesn't operate. However, this is a 100% negative ROI as we are paying for a module that we cannot use even though KGS and the implementation team states the issue is entirely on Kronos' development team.
