Likelihood to Recommend

ADP RUN

ADP RUN seems to be very well suited towards smaller businesses. The site is simple to use and has plenty of features for handling payroll and basic HR functions. I think the system would be a bit cumbersome to use with a larger number of employees (25+), unless you opted to use their time and attendance program.

Administration and accounting for employees to input their hours. As long as an employee can have the training, then they can go in and input their hours. However, Kronos can be slow and it can be confusing without the training needed to input the hours. Otherwise, once you have the training it's very self-explanatory

Pros

  • The customer Service team is exceptional. Their team onboarded our company and trained everyone on the software from the get go and are always available at a moments notice for any questions our employees have!
  • Employees are able to view their hours and paid time off in order to track their data properly. This has allowed for our team to have more time for other initiatives whereas before they were answering payroll and PTO questions constantly.
  • Quick and easy reporting features that we can use to show data to management when requested.

Cons

ADP RUN

  • I found adding a new employee a little complicated

Kronos Workforce Ready

  • Kronos Workforce Ready could be a little bit more compatible with Apple products.
  • An easy, more useful app would be great to help encourage our employees to use Kronos.
  • More customization when it comes to personnel file categories would be nice.

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.

We did not get much support when we were trying to implement. We felt like we were the only company with requirements for both Canada and the US and this seemed odd to us because North America is the most common place it was implemented. We found there was no integration with our source system so this made us have to create files so we can update members by position and make sure the right managers are in place for each group. We were not able to produce the requirements in a timely manner and we were not treated respectfully by the project manager from Kronos at the time

Alternatives Considered

ADP RUN

Personally, at other positions, I have used several other products. ADP is superior! Fantastic interface& super easy to use. Having had to train other on several platforms, this one was a very simple to show and effortless to teach to the others I was training. It is always the first company I recommend for payroll because they are local, great to work with and they offer such a versatile range of processing options.

Timesheets are infinitely more accurate in WFR. The first basic requirement of a timesheet should be to reflect completely what is paid on a given paycheck period. The timesheet has to be simple enough for all employees to be able to view and see how the pay from the time system matches to the pay in their paycheck whether it's calculated using the same software or if integrated with another payroll software. Kronos Workforce Ready does this well.

Return on Investment

ADP RUN

  • it is beneficial
  • we were able to switch form monthly to quarterly easily
  • the team is great to work with

Kronos Workforce Ready

  • Kronos Workforce Ready has helped tremendously with data exporting for recording into the general ledger. The data files are easily manipulated to accommodate changes required to accurately report expenses by department. There are several reports available to validate the expenses and insure the accuracy of the data before it is posted.
  • The reporting is used by the cost accounting group to assist the department heads with managing the labor required to complete the manufacturing process and assess the profitability of certain products based on labor costs. It is also helpful with projecting labor costs and accurately quoting prices for new products.
