Justworks Hours (formerly Boomr)

When you have a larger facility, being able to clock in from different spots on the property is very convenient. The only issue I have is sometimes forgetting to clock out before leaving! But I found that setting an alarm on my phone and then being able to access the app right away has made things nice and easy. Aside from that, you do need make sure that wherever you use the app has good connection. This can be a problem if you're attempting to use the app out in the field.

This product really has few peers in the SMB market for time and labor. The product was developed by SaasHR in Branchburg, NJ, purchased by Kronos in 2012, and acquired via a merger with Ultimate in 2020. The bones of the original product have stood the test of time and the incredible R&D at UKG just keeps improving it.

Pros

Justworks Hours (formerly Boomr)

  • Boomr tracks daily work hours and weekly totals automatically. The system sends weekly email reminders of the work week ending and digests of the previous week's hours worked.
  • The interface is intuitive and easy to use and understand. Open the mobile app, select your location and click "Track time." The app also tracks break times, and shifts can be edited afterward.
  • Boomr makes it easy for the payroll department to gather payroll information at the end of a week.

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

Justworks Hours (formerly Boomr)

  • There are rare times when Boomr will not load and open, essentially blocking you out from checking in, out, or whatever it may be.
  • I would like to be able to see more visual charts to track as oppose to just a list of the times.
Owen McCollum | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready

  • It's pretty complex and if one thing is missing it can quickly throw something off. Something as simple as a new position or a pay code can throw off everything if entered incorrectly. There are so many steps associated with these things it can easily be missed.
  • The HR processes seem to be pretty lengthy.

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.

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.

I have only used Boomr to track my time, but before I used Boomr I logged my time manually. Boomr is much easier and gives me more peace of mind than manual logging. I have had a largely positive experience with Boomr so far

Our organization was a long-time user of UKG Telestaff and we found that the ADT payroll services did not integrate easily for payroll processing and management. The success we experienced with UKG Telestaff (formerly Kronos) made the decision easy to continue with their products when our organization separated from local government and became a stand-alone entity. The integration did not come without issues by any means, however, the build and integration teams (on both sides) were able to cooperate and work through all the problems encountered.

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

Justworks Hours (formerly Boomr)

  • Boomr has helped us save employee and HR time so employees do not have to manually fill out a timesheet
  • Boomr has helped us with accuracy of reporting.
  • Boomr has helped us with making it easy for employees to clock their time!
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready

  • Positive: We have had better reporting with UKG Ready
  • Negative: We still have no benefit integration with our external benefit administrator after 2 years on the WFR Platform. The first attempt that took 2 years failed and now UKG wants us to pay for a single directional integration. This has cost excessive staff hours for manual intervention.
  • Negative: Any payroll adjustment requirements are not easy and the UKG Process is outdated. We recently had a payroll issue and were forced to issue a 2nd payroll but the payroll was delayed because UKG cannot (will not) process the same day. This is unacceptable and since Kronos and Ultimate Software merged, Ultimate software was able to process same day as are many other payroll companies that do not have as much power as UKG does.
  • Positive: We are able to use position management for better budgeting. There could be some upgrades to this module, but it does do what was promised.
  • Negative: Quarterly and year-end closeouts are 3rd business days which is not always possible. Very inflexible in regards to this. Even when it is done timely we get random notices and charges that it was not done even though we can prove it was.
  • Positive: It appears customer service is getting better. We struggled at first, but lately, it seems better.
