CMiC Construction Platform

I came from using Prolog and this software is so much better. The tabs are similar to any Microsoft program so it's user friendly. I cannot ever imagine going back to Prolog. It's sort of like a cassette tape vs. CD. The only thing I can think of where it's not as user friendly is its Daily Reports. We have superintendents that like to talk into a program and have it integrated. With CMIC PM you have to have another program like NoteVault or Hammertech that will load it into CMIC PM.

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

CMiC Construction Platform

  • The interface is cumbersome and not intuitive to new users.
  • Reasons for contracts or reports not compiling can be ambiguous and difficult to rectify.
  • The ability to copy and paste text from Word documents can be improved to have better formatting and legibility.

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.

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

CMiC Construction Platform

It doesn't. There are many other programs out there that offer similar services (Procore) that are much more user friendly and offer a collaborative environment for different entities (owner, architect, subcontractors). But the layout and interface is so layered and cumbersome it's easy to get lost in your project, or mess things up if you're not close to expert user level.

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

CMiC Construction Platform

  • It had saved a lot of time by having everything in one location.
  • Anyone within the company can access CMIC PM and look over a specific job's information.

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.
