I think that if the sales staff were more knowledgeable on the product they are selling you and were less worried about making a sale then perhaps I would have had a better experience and would have kept them longer than a couple of months.

Kronos Workforce Ready

Kronos Workforce Ready is extremely well suited for almost any organization. With ours, being in real estate often makes it difficult to track and provide data regarding hours and PTO to all of our site employees. With this system, it makes it easy for employees to view their hours worked and PTO accruals, which results in fewer questions being sent to our internal HR and Payroll teams. I would say that depending on your needs, there are other software but if you are looking for situations regarding hours and accruals as well as reporting related to these, this would be most suited for your needs. Less appropriate might be much larger staffs of corporate brands where there is just not enough customization in this software to provide for all employees scheduling and needs but for a mid-large company it is great.

  • User friendly

Kronos Workforce Ready

  • Kronos Workforce Ready implementation was amazing. They assign a team to you that consists of a leader and one expert per module that you are purchasing. They send you spreadsheets and questionnaires to start so they can get an idea of what you want. They ask questions and customize each module to set it up in a way that will be most beneficial to you and your organization.

Cons

ADP Streamline Payroll

  • Training was almost non existent when I was using the service. It was easy to figure out but I could have benefitted from some detailed training to help me better use the system and all its functionality.
  • I'm not sure this is anything ADP Streamline can fix because of time differences and such but it was very much like I was on an island waiting for messages in a bottle. I would upload and it would take sometimes more than a day to get a response.
  • The process was very manual when I was using the system. I did all my payroll work off ADP Streamline and basically used it to upload and relied on the rep to enter everything correctly. I felt like I had less control than I would like. I would have preferred to have some control over what was being uploaded and entered.

  • It is a SAAS product (which has its pros and cons) so you do have to deal with the fact that you do not have complete access to your database as you would with an on-premise system. As an IT guy I like to dig through the database and create some pretty complex reports.
  • Updates and patches are performed on Kronos' schedule not necessary yours.

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

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.

In general Kronos customer service is great. The response time is minimal for critical issues. The staff is knowledgeable about the product and can usually resolve the issue quickly.

Kronos Workforce Ready

We evaluated Ceridian HCM Dayforce prior to implementing Kronos. In fact we were a Ceridian customer. The cost of the implementation was almost five times the cost for Kronos. We believed at the time of evaluation and it has proven true that Kronos is more innovative and keeps their product more current than Ceridian. The customer service is superior to anything we experienced with Ceridian.

  • I cannot comment on this

Kronos Workforce Ready

  • With automated time reports, managers are able to see where they stand on potential overtime hours that could generate by employees
  • Payroll processes are streamlined speeding up the whole process from start to end - it used to take nearly 8 hours to process payroll on a different system, and now it is possible in just a few hours (which includes timesheet reviews, audits, etc.)
  • Being a web based system, it has lightened the load of work for our in-house IT department and they are able to spend their time working on other things instead of the payroll system.
