Likelihood to Recommend

AgileOne AccelerationVMS

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 Central

We use Kronos Workforce Central only for it's timekeeping and scheduling/forecasting capabilities. It absolutely meets our needs for these areas. The reporting functionality also serves us well; exporting reports in excel covers the needs for most teams that use the system. Finally, business leaders and local HR crews are able to run reports on the teams they support.

Pros

  • Centralized location
No photo available
  • Reporting. Employees want to know how much time they have, maybe it is to qualifying Family Leave or to see how much time they have accrued towards vacation.
  • Collaboration. With a large retail environment, you need a simple way for multiple managers to keep track of all employees.
  • Employee Request approvals. It could be done very simply and with either searching their name or employee number.

Cons

  • Lack of feedback

  • Pay codes are provided to supervisors for their use, but, restrictions do not exist that prevent the application to inappropriate groups.
  • Timeclock devices and annual maintenance fees are expensive.
  • Timeclock devices do have limitations to firmware updates based upon motherboard version. This can have an effect on functionality. Depot Exchange for problem devices does not upgrade the board.
  • Detergents/cleansers do erode some employees' fingerprints.

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.

Alternatives Considered

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

I did not select WFC, I was Tier II support for the company I worked for.

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

  • ROI - Both hard and soft ROI's - Reduction in Labor Cost (Hard) Centralization and Standardization of Business Practices (Soft)
  • Employee Satisfaction - As the saying goes in Healthcare "don't mess with my schedule or my timecard". With a well educated, communicated, and trained staff a successful implementation Kronos WFC has proven to improve Employee satisfaction levels and reduce the anxiety during change.
