If your company has only one way of paying hourly or salaried employees then the payroll module may work well.

Kronos Workforce Central

I would not suggest Workforce Central for small organizations with fairly simply pay rules. The system is so complex that you will be purchasing capabilities that you will likely never use. However, if you are a large, complex organization with complex pay rules (such as a union shop) and difficult tracking requirements, then I would highly suggest looking into the system. Because the system supports virtualization and use of SQL versus more expensive Oracle, mid-sized organizations may find Workforce Central very appealing.

Pros

  • Great automation. When an employee requests off, it will automatically notify me and then send a confirmation back to the employee.
  • I absolutely love the payroll feature, it is easy to find a discrepancy in payroll. Visually appealing pop-ups and animation.
  • The News section easily allows for organizational posts or notifications.

  • Accessible online and through a mobile app outside of work
  • Utilizes the same login system as the rest of our software so we don't have to remember multiple passwords
  • Simple user interface

Cons

  • There is currently a bug or defect with the calendar popup and it requires a duplicated click to request off.
  • The monthly time off calendar can be improved visually. Need an easier way to see a big picture for the employee.

  • Having a backup when a consultant is on leave has been a concern but the status of the project was never jeopardized.
  • Managing consultant leave schedules should be a priority especially when working on a project during peak leave times. Make and keep track of staff leave time to successfully prioritize project tasks.
  • Trouble shooting the Transaction Assistant error report is challenging. If a "user friendly" error report could be made it will be extremely helpful.

Having no experience with Kronos prior to using it in March 2016, their customer service team taught me how to use it the right way after my initial training at work. I am well-versed in data analysis using Excel and Access primarily, so once I discovered that Kronos had a reporting feature built in, I've used the feature quite a few times to help our properties evaluate their production costs and make good labor decisions. I give Kronos a 10 because once a person takes the time to learn how to use the software, they'll realize that Kronos is far more effective than most, and gives users more ways to access their information where and when they want to.

Online Training

Based on 3 answers
A lot of set ups vary from company to company so parts of our training we found it difficult to relate it to our processes. They have TONS of training modules available and a streamlined process for what you should complete and when. Would have been helpful to have onsite training for how much one pays for the system.
