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.

Kronos Workforce Ready

It is very well suited for salary exempt and non-exempt workers. I do not think we would use this model on a large scale in manufacturing as we are housing that software on our servers and completely control the outputs, the clocks (devices), the server updates, the reporting, and the changing of members as they cover different departments. Using Kronos Workforce Ready (KWR) makes sense for the exempt/non-exempt but not hourly because it would be too much for them to worry about. We have clerks that input vacation, personal, bereavement, etc., into the system and we run bi-weekly accruals as they are paid a week in arrears which is also different than how we use KWR.

Pros

  • Centralized location
No photo available
  • The implementation was done with a team approach and fairly organized and logical method. It was up and running in a fairly timely manner - about 3 to 4 months.
  • Time sheets are detailed and agree directly to actual payment even though we integrate the data and actual pay is done by a different software.
  • All employees have access to view their data and be self sufficient to request time off and review and request timesheet changes.

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

  • The Kronos Workforce Ready mobile app could use some improvements. About half of our hourly employees are in the field and may or may not have a computer with them, so we allow them to use the mobile app for clocking in and out on their phones. It seems that the majority of the missing punches were caused by a glitch in the mobile app.

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.

I have rated the support as high as possible considering some of the issues encountered with getting the assistance needed to complete my service requests. The majority of the time, it is as simple as the case manager accessing my system and walking me through what I need to do but there have been a few times where the support manager was unable to figure out how to make it work. In those cases, they typically seek out a subject matter expert for additional direction and the case is successfully resolved. Presently, there a 2 unresolved open cases in my queue that were never resolved and no work-around provided.

Alternatives Considered

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

The one thing that both ADP and Paychex have is their support is immediate when you call in. Each of these products are more expensive. Paychex had some other challenges for us which is why we made a switch.

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
No photo available
  • From the HR perspective, it has allowed us to track a lot of different information in one spot that we used to have in many different areas. This allows more people to have access to the data and keep it more up-to-date.
  • Our time keeping is more accurate with this system than in our previous system which was antiquated.
