AsureForce Time & Labor Management

AsureForce Time would work well for a company with a large volume of non-exempt staff, but the workforce would have to have very simplistic needs. Complex business rules and structure wouldn't be accommodated well by this solution.

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

  • The sync functionality between the clocks and the software, particularly the new clocks, is a plus.
  • The Asure support team is very responsive.

  • As a full service hospital there can be demands of staff to respond to high census or staffing shortages. Kronos has offered great utilization in floating hours between units and departments, identifying direct or indirect patient care hours, and ultimately offering analytics to clinical and operational leaders. This ability to specifically move hours while at work is exceptional for reporting and planning purposes across the organization.
  • The self-managed and leader managed options of an employee’s time card is of huge benefit. As a 24/7 hour operation it is critical that each individual is accountable for their own timekeeping. Kronos allows each employee to manage and submit adjustment, updates, and changes while at work without having to have their manager do it for them. The proceeding approval/acceptance process with these changes is well established and easy to authenticate.
  • The ability to access and navigate the user interface is very friendly and forgiving. Other systems can be quite cumbersome and hard to navigate, update, and easily change, but Kronos is pretty straight forward both for users and administrators. This ability to easily orient new team members and managers has been a great benefit to the organization.

Cons

  • The way the business rules are set up doesn't lend itself to easily supporting our specific business/users.
  • The software doesn't interface with our HR/payroll solution as well as I'd hoped.

  • Training required to use the product effectively, not simple at first
  • Dependent on Java, frequent updates to Java necessary to continue using the Kronos platform
  • Reporting tools are extensive and solid, though some reports can only be extracted in PDF, not in the more usable Excel format. How Kronos determines which can be extracted in Excel vs. PDF, I can't tell.

I am personally not a huge fan of Kronos Workforce Central. It crashes on me too often, and it runs slowly. It is not a quick program to use at all. Once it actually starts working, it is simple to use, but it is not one that you can use if you need information promptly.

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

This product was selected well before I began with my company, and we'll actually be moving off of it soon to Ultimate Software's time & attendance solution.

Can't compare. Quickbooks was easy, but lacked functional reporting which is essential to manage employee time

Return on Investment

  • We spend a lot of time internally on support and set up. Part of this is due to how the software was made and part is due to how our business is structured and changes frequently.
  • We are able, though, to scale on top of it easily when we open new locations.
Tony Leifert, SHRM-CP profile photo
  • We were able to completely do away with a number of paper forms once we rolled out the online capabilities for staff to update information and gather their own pay stubs and W-2 forms.
  • Locations that previously relied on paper timecards were able to use online clocking to clock in and out, eliminating a lot of effort and creating a much more efficient system, without having to purchase time-clocks for each of these locations.
  • HR was able to eliminate a number of Access and home-built databases and now store all of that data within the single Workforce Central application.
