Aladtec

While most of my Aladtec experience is with public safety agencies, I cannot imagine an industry or service that would not benefit from an Aladtec system. Affordable, reliable, efficient and user-friendly - Aladtec offers a product that most companies simply can only dream about.

Kronos Workforce Central

Kronos Workforce Central is well-suited for large organizations seeking a simplified time-recording system or are trying to get away from manual timesheets being submitted. Larger organizations would see a greater return on investment while using this system. It is less appropriate for smaller organizations with fewer employees, as the cost of the system likely would be greater than the investment of the system.

Pros

Aladtec

  • Real-time, all the time! Because of the no-delay "in the cloud" database any updates or changes to the schedule are instant. No one can see incorrect versions of the work schedule.
  • Excellent customer support. From the first call, the staff at Aladtec has been very friendly, helpful and always receptive. If we have a need for additional functionality, they want to know how they can help. Frequently this results in system upgrades - FREE - and often features are added we never would have thought about.
  • Custom and comprehensive. I have worked in several places who use Aladtec. While each looks similar and is easy to navigate and use, the differences in each service are reflected in the Aladtec product. I genuinely believe Aladtec can be applied successfully in any organization.

Kronos Workforce Central

  • Communication with the Kronos Project Manager - there has never been an occasion when the Project Manager has not made themselves available to get on a call or resolve issues.
  • Managing Resources - On many occasions multiple projects were overlapping one another and the Kronos Team was excellent in organizing their time to meet various due dates.
  • Resolving issue - Being able to resolve application and database concerns are critical when working on a project and on several occasions we've met to define, research and resolve issues.

Cons

Aladtec

  • Any specific improvements I have already mentioned to Aladtec and (I'm thrilled to report) several have already been implemented. They even made system accommodations for colorblind users - an industry first!
  • I am excited to see further development of the custom forms so we can merge to a completely paperless schedule & payroll system.
  • Although there is no specific fleet management tool, we have worked with Aladtec's Customer Support pros to develop a ways to accurately record all of our vehicles for scheduling maintenance, in-service and down time.

  • There are some areas and situations where management and technical staff are locked out of editing or correcting an error, and this should be addressed.
  • The ability to view workforce by department and by department needs can be useful for more thorough scheduling.
  • Designations for FT and PT workstaff and those with specific scheduling restrictions should be more pronounced.

Based on 2 answers
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

Aladtec

The features, functionality, user-friendliness and cost were all factors. Aladtec surpassed all 4 of the other systems we evaluated, most especially with their customer support. We have not had major problems but the few minor glitches we had (all our fault, admittedly) were resolved quickly. The staff not only responded immediately but they made sure we fully understood what happened, helping us prevent future frustrations.

Kronos Workforce Central

The company implemented Kronos long before I took my role, but I have been present for the upgrades to the system. I have also used other versions of Kronos in my past roles. Workforce Central is definitely the more modernized version of Kronos. It definitely has its issues, although it is more user-friendly than previous versions. I also find that it's fairly comparable to systems like ADP Enterprise.

Return on Investment

Aladtec

  • In the first 12 months of use we saved nearly 13x our investment in overtime alone. The following year we realized an average of 46 hours per week of time saved in workforce management.
  • We have seen no negative impacts from the use of Aladtec. Our only regret is not having it earlier.

  • The application has made documenting employee hours and overtime calculation user friendly. The experience in using the timeclock and PC has been a positive experience for staff.
