UKG Dimensions (formerly Kronos Workforce Dimensions)

Well Suited:Kronos Dimensions are well suited for organizations where time is tracked for hourly employees. To calculate overtime for Salary Non-Exempt employees, and to track the hours for temps.Approvals can be made through email for the timecardsComplex overtime rules can be handled through payrolls conceptLess Suited: A very low workforce who punch hours, since the timeclocks can be expensive.

Meta4 PeopleNet

Meta4 PeopleNet Core HR is a very powerful HR tool with abundant features that could fulfill pretty much all the HR needs of a small to medium sized organization. It might be an overkill for very small businesses with less than 20 employees as its really geared towards larger organizations. It offers powerful tools to performance reviews as well as employee HR management tasks. One interesting feature is the ability for employees to perform self administrative tasks through the software which allows some automation of tasks. On the other hand, the program can be so feature rich that require an advanced user with data analytic skills to fully utility. Companies that use the software will need to have at least one manager procure training before utilizing its full range of features.

Pros

UKG Dimensions (formerly Kronos Workforce Dimensions)

  • Dataviews and Reports
  • Function and Display Access Profiles
Lavanya Reddy | TrustRadius Reviewer

Meta4 PeopleNet

  • Clean and easy navigation: it is very user-friendly and compared to other solutions I have utilized, there is a clear difference on how information is displayed and also ease of navigation and speed of response of the platform.
  • All modules are really integrated and it is so much power when there is a correlation between say the data displayed in Talent Management and the info seen on the C&B module for example from a performance and compensation perspective, visualizing info and being able to analyze it easier for decision making.
  • Customizable, in our case, we use the solution and enjoy the multiple benefits and efficiencies due to how data is organized and presented and the same time we have the advantage that the user interface is all customized to our own corporate brand/look and feel, color palette and graphical line.

Cons

  • Kronos Workforce Dimensions a new product, and it has a lot of scope for improvement, with future releases. One of the best tools to perform time tracking.
  • Their support team is very knowledgeable, and their SLA's are pretty tight. Any query raised would be addressed in a few hours.
  • Timeclock configuration can be complicated; however, their support team knows the processes and guidelines.

It is excellent support so far, during implementation and also while live, the only reason why I am giving a 9 is because in some cases we could have had a quicker response or solution, but so far this doesn't look like an issue at all, and the vendor has been making sure we have what we need.

Alternatives Considered

UKG Dimensions (formerly Kronos Workforce Dimensions)

Kronos Workforce Dimensions is a very robust time tracking tool, which provides much flexibility for configuring the timecard and various rules to pay overtime. Kronos Workforce Dimensions also has their own timecards, which would automatically integrate with dimensions. Thus additional integration costs for other clocks are not required. Their support system is incredible, and they provide the bulk of training on their knowledge map.

Meta4 PeopleNet

Meta4 PeopleNet Core HR really shines as a flexible product capable of evolving with an organization's changing needs. Its robust features, cloud based architecture, and performance analysis help push the product ahead of some of its competitors. While not perfect, the software offers in-depth performance review functions and data analysis tools that show performance trends. With its self administrative tools, employees can help manage their own information, reducing workload for HR managers
