ADP SmartCompliance is great at making sure that all the necessary information is where it needs to be.

Kronos Workforce Ready

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

  • ADP SmartCompliance is great in that it provides all the reporting and info that you need in one spot and in an organized manner.
  • I like that ADP SmartCompliance allows you to upload agency notices and track the process of where it is at.
  • ADP allows the user to update tax rates an new states easily and quickly.

  • Easy to access in the sense that it simply takes a click of a button.
  • Comprehensible meaning that it is not difficult to understand how the system works as long as you have someone explain it to you.
  • Easy to use in the sense that it's not hard to remember how to use it. It's easy to explore.

Cons

  • It would be great to have How To guides more easily accessible. (maybe within the sections that they pertain to). For example, a how-to guide on how to add a new state to the within the set up the screen.
  • I think that being able to download the quarterly tax filings that ADP filed on our behalf are missing. We do not know what was submitted directly to the agencies.
  • A built-in Quarter end / Year end checklist or workflow that is directly in ADP SC would be great. Currently, I reference a spreadsheet that is outside of ADP SC to ensure that I have checked the necessary reports and reconciled. If this could be a step by step task (with the due dates) within ADP SC and if you could mark it complete within the system instead of having to scan and fax the sign off sheet for the quarter... that would be great and would help keep me on track.
  • Reminders within ADP SC that would let me know when it was time to submit my Monthly file for Illinois would be great. I currently have a calendar reminder to remind me to send the monthly integration file.

  • We could use better customer support--the few times when we have questions it's not always easy to get ahold of someone.

I use ADP more often than anyone in our company, and it has saved a great deal of time, money, and effort in payroll tax.

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.

Its easy to use just need additional changes to make some functions easier to find on the interface

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

I believe there is too much downtime. Single sign-on has been down 2 times in last 5 days. This downtime has occurred many times in the past 6 months. Many topics mentioned in the user guides have not enough information to use the functionality.

The account managers have too many clients to give great customer service all the time. I had to complain to get better customer service

Kronos support is great in the ability for a representative to take our needs seriously and respond with care, however, there are times when the need for support was time sensitive (for payroll processing purposes) and the response rate caused us hiccups in our timeline. Our company also has many customized options to our package and company build and at times things were miscommunicated in regards to the builds - this was only in the beginning though and has since been great.

Alternatives Considered

ADP is a leader in the industry for a reason
Michelle Gagnon profile photo
Kronos definitely beats out the competition in terms of user-friendly features and simple "it works" functionality. We tried using several other payroll suites including Paychex and found they were lacking in a number of areas especially in terms of user interface. Our employees literally groan when they remember using these older systems, they absolutely love Kronos in comparison.

Return on Investment

  • ADP has helped me get a better understanding of the quarterly tax process and I have been able to increase my knowledge in the tax filing.
Leticia Alvarez, CPP profile photo
  • Overtime for Salary Non-Exempt members is easier to track. They no longer have to fill out a time card on a piece of paper where things can be mis-interpreted or transposed.
  • Salaried members as well as non-exempt members are using it 100% and we receive reminders from payroll to submit our time sheets after reviewing them making the entire approval process paperless! We are finally using a system that we can easily run reports from and utilize the outputs for files to upload which means less manual errors.
  • We are no longer paying our managers to review a paper time sheet then compare it to their notifications on their calendar then walk it to the administrative assistant so they can double check compared to the group calendar then they manually walked it up to the third floor for processing. This helped relieve manual tasks for all members and definitely allowed to increase staff productivity.
  • We are using this system to report and approve FMLA and STD and record it properly allowing the medical center on site to systematically track timing and make sure appropriate paperwork is filled out in a timely manner.
  • Payroll had to make some changes but they adapted quickly, they were trained and we are working with the system admin as a team partnering with Kronos and Global Information Services. They have their reports immediately, no waiting for sales areas to report their hours, etc.
