My APS Review

APS is well suited for entering in new-hire information and creating reports with your employee information, such as birthdays/anniversaries, but difficult to do attendance tracking or perfect attendance programs. The worst thing I think would be training, entering in training classes was so tedious because each person has to be put in individually.

APS is best (to me) for the one stop look at HR information. I'm able to see time and attendance. I am able to complete the benefits process during open enrollment. I am able to see the accruals, rates, deductions etc, all in one place.
I would like to see APS remember my login information and not stay logged in longer on a daily basis.

They are more suited to growing, nimble companies. They are soon adding employee approval to time cards and checkin by facial recognition. Additions and changes to improve functionality might not work for a very large company like GE.

APS does a fantastic job of helping us with payroll processing and HR management. The software is easy to use. The multiple user access makes the various management approvals easy and the reporting helps out in multiple areas. We also backup all our HR records to the cloud with their secure docs module.

APS OnLine provides users a cost-effective solution to timekeeping/payroll needs

I would think that a large company might struggle with the system bog, although it very well could be our servers not pushing the data quick enough. For small and medium-sized business, it is a nearly perfect, easy to learn/use timekeeping and payroll solution. Highly recommend a demo to see for yourself.

I have had a lot of experience with processing payroll over the last 43 years, and after using APS OnLine for the past three months, I believe that this system is suitable for most payroll situations and solutions. I was very surprised and impressed with the initial presentation and all the "little things" that they offer as a normal part of the service. It is apparent that a lot of time and thought went into the creation of this software.

APS Online does it all. There is no deficiency in the product or the customer service. If my contact person does not have the answer, she will find it out and call me. We can communicate with APS Online through e-mail or a phone call. They are always there and ready to help solve our problem.

APS customer service is top notch

I think that APS Online is scalable to any organization. It's a wonderful product and I have had so many managers that work with me that feel the same way. We haven't been with them quite a year yet but since we've started it has made a world of difference for us.

Things to ask about-

1- Do they specialize in or can they accommodate states that you are working in and their various rules?

2- What type of customer service? Do they have a call center or do they have a designated person like APS?

3- How long do your reports stay in the system? (ADP "archived" theirs after a year so we couldn't reach them)

Larger companies will benefit more from APS OnLine than companies with less than 50 employees. Utilizing the ability to upload the payroll entry from a CSV file has decreased the time it takes us to submit payroll significantly. If your company needs to speed up the payroll process, or just needs a more versatile tool for generating various payroll reports then APS OnLine is the way to go.

Some of the key questions we asked were: Could you process child support holding electronically? Could we do our own check printing on preferred checks? How many employees could they accommodate? Did the system have an HR side with the program and if so was it additional ( they do and it is additional)? I feel as though it should be included.
