With so many agencies submitting candidates and only a few being reviewed at a time the chance of a candidate making it to a review and in front of a hiring manager is low.

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

  • Centralized location
No photo available
  • 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

  • There are so many other agencies submitting candidates it is hard to make a placement
  • Only a few candidates are reviewed at a time and sent to the hiring managers
  • Lack of feedback

  • Reporting features could be more detailed. For example, I am currently only able to run weekly reporting versus day by day or customizable reporting.
  • Monthly and past views of our employees data, hours and scheduling extending outside of the current pay period.
  • Shift swapping with coworkers could be more easily done and seamless.

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.

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

We have made several placements through Fieldglass - not sure how their review process differs from Agile-1

We selected Kronos Workforce Ready as it was priced right for what we intended on using it for. We selected them also because we have been using Kronos Workforce Central for manufacturing and it seemed like the right thing to do for consistency in processes for timekeeping. It was a bit of a long implementation but there was a lot of change management for all users, managers, and payroll as well as reporting needs and file transfer requirements from our source system. KWR is well known and we have a good relationship with them as a vendor. We are continuing to look at how to upgrade our Kronos Workforce Central application to make life easier on the manufacturing clerks and hoping to provide them with some new functionality in the process.

Return on Investment

  • Have not made a placement through Agile-1 yet
  • Lack of feedback leaves us wondering why our candidate was not a fit

  • Kronos Workforce Ready has had a very positive impact on our organization. We set up notices that go to the managers to alert them if an employee shows up late for work or comes in late after lunch. It also alerts the manager if an employee is approaching overtime hours. This has helped our bottom line greatly.
  • Kronos Workforce Ready has reduced the number of payroll errors and increased productivity by having the timekeeping module flow directly into the payroll module. We used to have them hand send in paper time sheets which we had to key into the old payroll system. That took a lot of time and there was ample opportunity for mistakes.
