Our goal was to simplify our payroll process and make it more user friendly. Very happy with final outcome.

Shiftboard

Shiftboard allows staff to see their schedule and bid on overtime shifts that are available. This function is very powerful and helps our organization greatly. Our centralized scheduling manager is able to see every schedule in our organization. With this information, the scheduler can see which programs need help and is able to assist. This functionality has increased efficiency and saved us in overtime costs.

Pros

  • Still has a dedicated personal support staff with broad product knowledge.
  • They do not release a feature until it has been fully vetted - much fewer bolt-on solutions.
  • Has embraced third parties (brokers, CPAs) as partners in using the platform.

  • Customization.

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!

  • The ability to print a month view of the schedule would be a great benefit.
  • The signup list is a great feature, but there are too many steps to make it easy to use.
  • The bulk add and delete process works well, but tends to be confusing for users.

Usability

APS9.5
Based on 4 answers
In general, it's a great system to use. We were looking for simplicity and ease of use and have received raves from our employees in their ability to access and make use of the system. There is still so much more that we have yet to gain as we continue working through each of the modules.

Support

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.

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.
