Altus Dynamics CRM is a fabulous tool that meets our needs. Where we identify gaps, we can quickly and easily configure the system to meet those needs. Altus Dynamics as a partner were excellent at helping us get the system set up initially to meet our needs, though the lack of function specific training meant that we had to ensure resources on our end to learn through some trial and error at times. That said, Dynamics CRM resources are bountiful on the internet through community forums and groups and questions can often be solved within minutes of searching for the item.

Pros

Sparkrock

  • Integrates finance with payroll. Many solutions still run these as separate functions and this was one of the deciding factors for King's when purchasing Microsoft NAV in 2005.
  • Altus has added an employee web app that seamlessly connects the outside 'users' to the information they require.
  • HR position management has taken the many details of an employee in this environment and allowed each position to be tracked individually.

TimeForge

  • This software is easy to access. It can assess in the office or remote locations.
  • It is user-friendly. Easy to catch on and pick up with minimal training.
  • Payment for the service is easy and painless. Plug and play.

Cons

Sparkrock

  • Building in additional training support for end users as part of an implementation or upgrade.
  • Sharing of best practices amongst like minded organizations and creating system and or reporting standardizations where possible.
  • It would be great to see a "cashless schools" module as part of the product which integrates into the financial system!

  • I don't have any cons at this time.

Timeforge support is helpful. They take time to walk through each detail and ensure you understand before they let you go.

Alternatives Considered

Sparkrock

We came from a product that was specific to our industry. It was old, tired and did not do many of the things the Altus Dynamics solution does. The only other product that we seriously considered was Microsoft Dynamics GP, however our finance team felt that product was too light for our needs and growth

I was referred by a previous coworker. They are using Timeforge and were telling me about it. It was all she said it was.

Return on Investment

Sparkrock

  • In some cases the system has helped bring efficiencies to our world. The workflow capabilities of Dynamics CRM are extremely functional and helpful.
  • The learning curve can be challenging for some. Those that are overwhelmed by technology in general can struggle with understanding how the system works and where to find what they need.
Malcolm McAuley | TrustRadius Reviewer

TimeForge

  • Timeforge has helped with the accountability of our employees with respect to the hours they work.
  • Scheduling has added the ability to reach out to all employees so that they can access the schedule to ensure they show up for their hours.
