DATABASICS
Easy to use with lots of customization. The PTO request and calendar is a great tool with real-time balances easy to access. The validation table is large enough to handle hundreds of projects with dozens of sub-categories. We also like the ability to send notices on our own schedule.

We don't use the clock in and clock out feature so I can't speak to that. It works best for our exempt employees and is a little harder for our non-exempt employees. We allow employees to enter their start and stop times but some of our non-exempt employees have trouble logging their meals properly. If they did it incorrectly, they can't always fix it and it has to be fixed by an admin (often by deleting all the time entered for that day).

  • While you can future date many changes in an employee profile, you can't change all of them. A big one that I wish you could future date is manager changes.
  • There is not a way to have the project codes/cost centers automatically accessible for employees. New employees have to go in and activate them. It's a small thing but people just don't pay much attention.
  • They could really improve their training materials. Some short videos to share with employees on entering time would be really helpful.
  • They don't have a mobile app. They have a mobile website but it isn't great and our employees really want an app.

Good value of money. Sped up the month-end closing time.

Stratustime's GUI is better, but Kronos seemed more stable

  • Overall, it has really helped us streamline our timekeeping process by allowing managers and employees to approve their time electronically from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • The ability to reconcile time sheets in a timely manner as also allowed us to process payroll a few days earlier than we were able to with our previous system.
