Harvest

Harvest salt or immediate need for a replacement time tracking system that had become out of financial reach. It was a simple solution that everyone in our organization picked up really quickly. For myself at the administrative level, I have had no trouble adding clients, adjusting tasks, migrating tasks and running reports.I am unsure as to the best practices at this time for a particular clients that have very specific price rate associated to very specific roles, it will still list the roles that we do not want in the drop-down menu and I would really like to eliminate that. I do not want room for error or for any particular user to pick the wrong task. It still lists them as non-billable but there are no non-billable hours associated to that client, so we don’t need those at all on the drop down.

I feel UKG Ready is for a larger business that wants the customization and is ever-changing. There are many reports and options that will help a larger business plus numbers, etc.. I honestly feel like smaller business, 25 or less, really wouldn't benefits much from this software.

Pros

Harvest

  • Offers several options on using the tool, for example, you can use the app on your phone, the app for desktop, or simply have the website open.
  • The timer integrates with other platforms. For example, our team uses Asana as our project management tool. Now, in real-time, I can know which projects my team is working on and whether we're implementing good time management strategies to meet our goals.
  • The summary break downs are wonderful! You can view an individual's hours as well as project hours. There are even notifications you could receive when your team is getting close to reaching the allotted time for a client's project.

UKG Ready

  • Streamlines the process between HR and payroll. Each team can quickly see and share information.
  • Our entire hospital team can use the system and it's easy to provide trouble shooting support to our teams.
  • Appearance -The system is easy to use and attractive for users.
  • The payroll process specifically is very well laid out.
  • Communication! UKG has really stepped up on communication and training especially around tax related deadlines.

Cons

Harvest

  • Sometimes it can be difficult to find the item that you're looking for, as there are tabs for time, projects, team, reports etc. and it's not always clear where the item you're looking for will be housed.
  • It would be nice if things could be broken out more clearly by department, as sometimes the entire organization will be added to a new project when really only a couple of people should have.
Laura Cain | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready

  • Customer support. I do not like the idea of not being able to call someone with a quick question without adding a case. Waiting for someone to call you back is not helpful at all. Chat line is mostly off-line
  • SMA is relatively new to Kronos's Platform. I really felt like we were not fully trained on the system. We were not able to train our staff well either. I would really like to see short clip videos that we are able to share with new employees. I don't have time to read long documents which I find is a lot of what is on the training portal.

We plan to renew our support and use of UKG Ready each year unless it becomes unavailable or the district seeks another vendor. As of now, there are no plans to changes vendors. The district staff is now familiar with using UKG. Another vendor will need to meet the same expectations we have come to enjoy with using UKG

Somethings are very easy to do, however somethings are very clunky. For many things such as time change requests and approvals it would be nice to see the timesheet as you are making the request rather than having to remember what was on there. It does require a general technical base that some of our bus and custodial staff do not have.

The system seems very stable. Being hosted in the cloud, we are vulnerable to internet speeds and busy times. The system has been down a couple times over the 3 months we have been live, but Kronos resolved the issues very quickly. To have access from a desktop, tablet, time clock, or phone app is one of the best features....users have almost NO REASON they can't clock in.

We were always told that Kronos was the best, but there are reports that we got out of ADP and other payroll providers that we cannot get out of Kronos. One example is a report of Productive/Non-productive hours by department. We also need the dollar amount associated with the hours. This is information that is required on our cost report and we were told that that report is unavailable. It is very frustrating when I can't get what I need.

I have not actually had any customer support issues as the product just works for me and I have not needed it. So using that as the basis of making my assessment on support I would reckon the team are pretty responsive and attentive to customer needs. I have only used the solution on Chrome and Android so have no idea what the experience is like on other browsers or phone operating systems.

The support received varies. In most instances, I have been contacted same day by support to get the issue resolved, but there was one instance where I was not contacted for over a week and then when I was finally contacted, the assistance received was lacking.

Our in-person training was a hybrid. Live online training with an instructor. They were very knowledgeable of the product & the area they were training on. I asked several specific questions and if they didn't know the answer immediately they followed up after class.

Lots & lots of training available. Timing was wrong for our organization. We had lengthy down time in the beginning while the implementation consultant setup our system. We did online training then. Difficult to train on a generic system setup that isn't your industry and hard to understand what you are learning how to do w/o actually being in your system. Online training was well documented and the instructors were very knowledgeable.

Make sure the people who are doing the build have extensive knowledge on employment law and asking the right questions. I would bet that the people who helped with our builds did not read any of our employment contracts or ordinances; and when I asked questions about how other companies handled certain basic dictates from federal employment laws, they didn't have any idea what FMLA, FLSA, etc were.

Alternatives Considered

Harvest

Harvest is significantly better than Jira. I think Jira's is not originally intended to be used as a time logging/management system, but we had been previously using it as that. It was much clunkier, and many employees had a difficult time using it as a user interface goes.Harvest is much more user friendly and has simplified the daily time-logging process for everyone in our office
Tegan Jenner | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready

Kronos definitely beats out the competition in terms of user-friendly features and simple "it works" functionality. We tried using several other payroll suites including Paychex and found they were lacking in a number of areas especially in terms of user interface. Our employees literally groan when they remember using these older systems, they absolutely love Kronos in comparison.

Thus far we are able to add as many users as necessary, implement 3 different bargaining units, 5 different types of user groups. Very flexible.

Return on Investment

Harvest

  • Harvest has improved our payment schedules. Since we switched, we get paid for projects much sooner.
  • Harvest has saved us a ton of time with payroll. We are able to track our users time and pay them appropriately based on their billable hours.
  • Harvest is becoming a lifesaver around tax time. The reporting features have allowed us to pull reports for our tax accountant.
Brian Alonzo | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready

  • Managers have easy access to people/hours/earnings to better manage budgets - once we implement Scheduler, we'll take it to the next level.
  • Managers and employees can self-serve in ways not possible before - we eliminated 95% of paper processes during our implementation.
