APS

APS does a fantastic job of helping us with payroll processing and HR management. The software is easy to use. The multiple user access makes the various management approvals easy and the reporting helps out in multiple areas. We also backup all our HR records to the cloud with their secure docs module

The system allows us to make informed decisions through the accurate reporting capabilities which are a great help when dealing with complex people issues. The reports are accurate and are great for situations such as absence reporting.

Pros

  • Ease of use of software
  • Intuitive step by step process for processing payroll
  • Reporting is easily customized
John Bellini III profile photo
  • Complex reporting is made easy through the reporting capabilities of the system. We have been using reports for the past year and absolutely trust the accuracy of the data produced. The reports are generated easily through the system and can be exported into an editable Excel spreadsheet which is great.
  • The self-service of data is great for freeing up HR time. Employees can update their personal information themselves quickly and easily.
  • The App is a great feature of People HR. A large proportion of our employees work in our warehouse and as such don't have their own computer at work. The app allows those employees easy access to the system on the go.

Cons

  • I can't find a weakness. The customer support is there - even with simple things as well as any difficulty we may have in house. APS Online works with us!
Patricia Riedlinger profile photo
  • The system tends to be particularly slow on Monday mornings and sometimes can be down for a couple of hours at a time which is frustrating for employees
  • The naming of the tabs isn't as clear as they could be. For example, reports are called Queries. Makes getting used to
  • The org chart isn't very user-friendly, would be better to be able to export department by department

Support

APS9.9
Based on 3 answers
There is one primary account representative that we contact on a regular basis. If she is unavailable, there are others on her team. It does seem that our implementation was more complex than others that have been installed, so fixes are not as easily remedied.

Implementation

APS8.7
Based on 4 answers
It would have been helpful to understand the phases of the implementation up front so I could have prepared differently for enrollments, billing, and transfer of information to payroll. At the end of the day, I'm happy with the selection and the system and anticipate I will like it better as we go along. We have done a number of other system implementations in the past few years, and this has been pretty painless, however, I've had a few surprises.

Alternatives Considered

We were previously with ADP and while the functionality improved when we moved to the Workforce Now version, we still wanted an improved and more economical solution for integrating payroll and HR with benefits management. APS Online offers that.

We observed 3 other products and PeopleHR had more to the product for a much lower cost when we compared.

Return on Investment

  • Cost wise, APS is a great price. It has been very helpful in our Cost Center Development plan.
  • The cost has stayed the same over the past few years. Each year we add a new product.
Janet Fowler profile photo
  • The system has freed up time of our administrators allowing them to get involved in more and develop themselves within the department
  • The data allows us to accurately report on absence which has supported the development of a new absence management process
