Likelihood to Recommend

Novatime

I believe that Novatime would be well suited for a business that has multiple people working the same or similar shifts. I would think that such places like a fast-food restaurant, hotel/hospitality industry, movie theater, and/or retail store would be a place where something like this would be a place where this software might flourish. In small businesses who have personalized care settings and jobs where the hours may change from day to day, I would recommend this particular timekeeping software.

Paycor is a strong platform for small to mid-size organizations; it easily handles the day-to-day needs of HR and finance as well as any special reporting needed for audits, etc. The onboarding process can be a bit tedious, but once everything is entered, the data pushes through from HR to payroll. Open enrollments are also easy to handle through Paycor; however, it would be more useful if there were bridges between Paycor and benefits companies so that enrollments could be pushed out to the provider platform. Thus for larger companies, Paycor may not be as strong for all their needs.

Cons

Novatime

  • International configuration
  • Payroll export is a little cumbersome
Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo

Paycor

  • The functionality of the time clock could be improved as there are times when adjustments to time are difficult, especially when adjusting from one day to the next in the event an employee "rolls" over past midnight.
  • When using the dashboard in TOD and reviewing exceptions, it is difficult to maneuver from one day to the next with having to go back to dashboard. This functionality could be improved by allowing the user to simply select the next page which should show all exceptions.
  • The Transfer at time of day, period block transfer, and reallocate hours functions are confusing. This could be tightened up a bit and allowing multiple revisions within the same selection would be helpful.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
On the employee's side of things, Novatime is pretty intuitive and fairly easy to use. All they have to do is either press a button to punch in or punch out. If they are entering in their hours, all they have to do is type in the number of hours per day.On the manager's side of things, Novatime is also fairly easy to use. It highlights in red any missed punches and in green any OT that the employee has. There are links on the homepage of the manager's page that will lead them to a list of all their employees' missed punches for a pay period and they can fix them all before payroll is due.Novatime becomes a bit more complicated on the administrator's side. The issues I have run into with Novatime normally come after updates/upgrades to their system. They have been getting better, but the administrator's side is still a bit clunky and takes a while to find what you are looking for. It is not as intuitive as the other sides and takes a bit of computer knowledge to figure it out.

I've used other companies for this same usage and I've found Paycor to be the best. It's easy to locate what you're looking for, everything is already prepared for you and the representatives are available to assist you in anything you may need at any time. Once you've gone through a few entries, you should be comfortable to continue without assistance.

Paycor usually can come up with an answer, but I don't like that we have had so many different people. The information for reaching out is helpfully posted on your home page when you log in, though. Definite points there. Paycor wants you to be able to get help, but the person helping just can vary.

Implementation of any new software is going to be challenging, especially if you are maintaining an existing program concurrently. When it is time for dual-processing (both old and new software) prior to going live, be prepared to be stressed. But trust the process and it will be over soon.

Ascentis Timekeeper is superior in it's ability in its configuration of highly complex organizational policies.

I have used ADP in the past, and it felt like I was nothing more than a part of an account to them. With Paycor, I know they recognize me as a person, a part of a company.

Return on Investment

Novatime

  • It has helped us identify which employees have consistently had OT.
  • It has helped us identify which departments have consistently had OT and/or not utilized their staff to keep OT in check.
Jennifer Steffens profile photo

Paycor

  • Paycor has freed up a lot of time for HR.
  • Paycor has allowed us to be confident in all our Payroll taxes.
  • We had issues with paycor 3 years ago, but Paycor has seemed to turned itself around and reinvented itself into a much more user friendly company.
