Beeline VMS

[Beeline VMS is well suited for] MSP's monitoring a contingent workforce. Could have a cheaper option for agencies to use on a sweeping basis with their clients. As some still use excel sheets and emails for contractors to submit their time. So having solutions for that level of service

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.

Kronos Workforce Central

  • I personally feel like timekeeping is very well thought out and has some powerful tools built in. There is a bit of a learning curve but with strategically placed SMEs we were able to get the use and functionality we needed out of the system.
  • Workforce planning has been crucial in planning operational support in our retail and customer service centers. It is also editable and modifiable as needed.

Cons

Beeline VMS

  • Finding existing candidates who have profiles within Beeline
  • Adding/removing/editing specific job categories to candidates - I often had to create two separate profiles for the same person when submitting them to different jobs within Beeline
  • Beeline integration with third-party Applicant Tracking Systems (such as Bullhorn ATS)

Kronos Workforce Central

  • Kronos can take a simple task and make it overly complicated. This is the problem when the program is so incredibly robust.
  • All of the tax withholding and filing was handled autonomously by our previous payroll company. We had little knowledge of what they were doing. With Kronos, we are required to provide filing schedules, specific EIN for each locality, etc. This is something we would have preferred not to concern ourselves with and was much easier on us when the previous company was handling.
  • Kronos seems to be geared toward large organizations with a payroll department, accounting department, HR department, etc. Our company is small and has only one employee in each of those roles. As such, Kronos can be a real burden on that one employee to do a lot of work that should be handled by a team of people, especially in the implementation phase.

Now that the system is installed and operational, the "pain is gone"...therefore we see no reason to change to a different application. There is no functionality that is missing from the system that would drive us to consider another solution at this time. Maintenance support from Kronos is sufficient and updates occur regularly.

I think Beeline is one of the best tools, I like Fieldglass the best but beeline comes in a close 2nd. Beeline is easy to navigate around for most things, it is a little difficult to find some information however most of the time it is pretty easy and nice to use

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

Beeline VMS

Again, I didn't select Beeline, our clients did. But in comparing these products from a user perspective, I would rank Beeline about on par with the rest. IQNavigator and Fieldglass are probably the best ones, and Covendis is by far the worst. The rest are fairly similar, and all have many of the same issues. Most companies don't take the time (or the VMS doesn't allow them) to simplify the software for use. There are always a ton of unnecessary and unused features that are required to fill out, or require clicking through, and it honestly wastes a ton of time. I will say, though, that I have used Fieldglass for more than one client, and it is the easiest, every time.

Kronos Workforce Central

Kronos and Dayforce are the two timekeeping systems I’ve worked with in recent years. Kronos feels a little more comprehensive and is my primary timekeeping tool both for myself as well as my staff. Kronos is a great tool for a wide range of shifts, working locations, and pay codes. In this context, I would pick Kronos over Dayforce. On the opposite side, Dayforce is extremely user-friendly and has a “cleaner” user interface if that is a contributing factor for anyone. Also, for managers who oversee large teams (30-50 team members) then Dayforce is a bit more simple to approve time cards, hours, and leave. Kronos is a bit clunky with all the clicks, and managing large teams of hourly employees would be a huge time suck to go in to review/approve all.

Return on Investment

Beeline VMS

  • N/A - to my knowledge, we did not pay for our Beeline VMS use, it was included as part of our agreement with Amazon's Contingent Workforce Program.

Kronos Workforce Central

  • Workforce Central has allowed the University to manage compliance at a higher level with the consistent application of rules.
  • Workforce Central has allowed insight into the time collection process at the University with a granular audit trail.
  • Support for the Workforce Central system requires a partnership between campus IT and the functional (payroll) employees. The system cannot be installed and forgotten and must be actively managed.
