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

For the most part, the Hosted version has all of the same benefits as the on-premise version. As a hosted client, we have direct VPN access to the database. Although access is read only, this is a huge benefit over most other SAAS or hosted applications. Bulk inserts and updates to the database are allowed, as are changes to the web front-end, you'll just need to submit your code to the hosting dept and have them review and execute it for you. The support team and hosting department are great and will help you do what you need to do

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.

  • Benefit Module - Prior to VISTA, AACOG was unable to electronically allow employees to register or maintain their health benefits. The system has allowed for each employee to have a view access to their benefits and if changes are required, communication can be sent to their HR Specialist to request the change. This process has helped eliminate a paper process in which the employees and HR staff would have to manually register and track benefits. AWESOME
  • Payroll - Until the implementation of the Payroll Module, AACOG's employees had to complete a paper version of their work hours and submit to the payroll department. The VISTA Payroll Module allows each employee to enter their time into a system that allows the supervisors to approve and submit automatically to the payroll department. This process eliminates the payroll specialist from having to manually track down supervisor for the employee's paper time report. The system also tracks the employee leave accruals as well as leave that has been used. The system eliminates the need to have multiple tracking systems and all is maintained in one area.

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.

  • I think their interfaces could use some, I can't say improvement, but let us say robustness. Their interface mechanism lets you import or export data from the system. It seems to handle just about every datasource except Excel files, which my people live and die by. We don't want to have to convert Excel files, it makes the auditors take a second look and plus it's an extra step for some already very busy people.
  • More documentation. They have a very good technical resource, but I'd like to see a system user guide. There's many features, I just don't know what they do and having a user guide written for the end user would be very helpful. A lot of times, I receive this documentation after I have a problem and contact support.
  • They could do better capturing payroll history employer paid amounts. We have a home-grown way of doing it, but with ACA, we have found some new challenges with the way we're doing it. It would be nice if payroll processing would capture these amounts
  • Having to have a separate environment for Year End processing, it would be nice if we didn't have to have multiple production environments

It's working well for us. Yes, we do have some challenges, but we're working through them. With all the time and money put in to this, why would we switch. Especially since we really haven't used this product to it's full potential, but that's many due to time challenges.

Ask lots of questions, ensure you fully understand the functionality (particularly history records) and train, train, train the users for correct and complete utilization of the system.

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.
Yvette Calhoun profile photo
I wasn't around when other products were being evaluated. But I've been working with the system for almost 5 years now and I'm pretty happy with it (and I'm picky!) I think the biggest reason we picked it was because of how configurable it is as well as having the ability to have it in-house. It's important to us that we keep control of our data.

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
  • It makes for better customer services when mistakes are made. You can fix it yourself instead of haivng to wait until the next payroll
  • The reports have done wonders for our accounting team
  • the negative impact would not know what errors in the setup process you have until it is too late
