APS is a national workforce management and cloud-based HR solution provider. The platform includes core HR, payroll, time and attendance (including manager and employee self-service), compliance tools, and onboarding. has helped me be more efficient and organized with employee records and payroll.APS is currently being used by the HR department for payroll, benefits and time management.,The employees at APS have always responded in a timely manner when I have questions or issues to address. When I am experiencing difficulty with the system and unable to resolve on my own my account a representative will take care of it on her end and follow up to make sure the problem doesn't continue to occur.,A lot of items are manually entered especially in the time and attendance system. If the payroll system could automatically pull from time and attendance that would be great. It would help if the Tab or Enter key would take you to the next entry where you could begin typing without having to backspace the keys to the beginning of the box.,10,Increased employee efficiency,1,1,Payroll Time and Attendance management Payroll Taxes,Asset Tracking Benefit Administration Event Tracking,FMLA tracking e-signatures Document Tracking,9,Implemented in-house,Change management was minimal,Learning how to use the system Making sure that all of the information transferred over correctly,9Get the payroll done fast and easy!We use APS Online through out the whole business. We have employees who want their payroll deposited in their accounts. Some split the deposit to their savings and checking and others deposit it to only their checking. We also have employees who want the physical check. APS Online makes this a simple operation. We just enter the information once and the requested action is repeated each and every time we print payroll. If for some reason (holidays) we need to change the way the payroll is processed, it too is an easy adjustment; just with a few key strokes we can have all the payroll printed here in our office.,We do not have to deal with awaiting the arrival of paychecks through FedEx or UPS, which includes an extra expense. We print right here in our office, when we are ready. Should we need to print an employee's check early, that is easily done as a miscellaneous pay check. And it is recorded as such for that employee. We do not have to worry about payroll taxes as APS Online takes care of it and they send us a report.,I can't find a weakness. The customer support is there - even with simple things as well as any difficulty we may have in house. APS Online works with us!,10,None,3,1,Employee records (huge importance) Employee time Employee pay rates for different jobs,We expect APS Online to meet all our needs. And they do!,10APS OnLine - its too easy to not use it.APS OnLine is a great asset to our company as it handles our payroll needs. Without paying our employees correctly, accurately, and timely, we understand that we would struggle to keep our employees motivated. Your system merges well with our time sheet system to provide a seamless payroll structure for our company.,When we have a question or an issue that arises, our account manager with APS is a phone call away. They are alway helpful and friendly and help find an answer and a quick solution to our issue.,In my experience, I haven't seen any issues that can be improved on.,8,APS OnLine has helped us streamline the payroll process by freeing up our time of not having to personally cut and sign weekly paychecks. We don't have to rely on check signers to be present which has helped our timeliness as well.,,3,2,Payroll Payroll reporting Payroll,10New to APS but like it so far!Today was our first payday with APS Online. We are using it for payroll, timekeeping and HR throughout the entire organization. The use of the timekeeping module has eliminated the need for manual time sheets and streamlined the whole process for payroll. The HR module will reduce the amount of redundancy and use of various spreadsheets currently used to gather and store information.,The customer service with APS has been exceptional. The transition from another payroll provider to APS Online was seamless. The actual processing of the payroll was easy.,A suggestion would be within the payroll module - it does not automatically calculate the hourly rate for a salaried employee. The calculation must be done manually and entered into the system.,8,The change to APS Online will decrease the time spent preparing and processing payroll. The most important improvement will be the integration with the payroll and HR modules - this will save a tremendous amount of redundant work.,,2,2,Streamlining the payroll, timekeeping and HR functions. Reduce the amount of redundant work by having an actual HR module. Improve our on-boarding process by making it mainly electronic.,APS Online will be a tremendous help to us with ACA reporting. Notifications on upcoming items that need attention.,Keeping track of company assets that are in the possession of our associates.,10,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Vendor Reputation,I would have evaluated a greater number of companies that are similar to the one I chose.,Vendor implemented,Change management was a small part of the implementation and was well-handled,There were no significant issues.,9,9,No,All of their support has been good.,Loading the time from the timekeeping module to payroll is just the one click. Payroll taxes are handled completely by APS. We are still learning the "request time off" function, but it looks like it will be a time saver to our managers.,I'm still learning to navigate the report builder - it's not always clear what I need to pull to get what I need.,Yes, but I don't use it,9New to APSAPS OnLine is being used across the whole organization. All of our employees have embraced the new system increasing the number of direct deposits and paperless vouchers. Primarily, it has increased the online time management in place of time cards for our outlying areas along with time off requests eliminating approximately 15 hours of manual data entry.,APS OnLine is a great end user product and very easy for our employees. They have quick access to all their information, their accrual balances, hours worked, etc. They are able to enter their time off requests in the system. Although our prior system had these capabilities, employees had difficulty accessing system. If they couldn't get in, they couldn't use it. More employees logged on to APS in the first two weeks of use than in the prior three years with former system. Integration - Data is real-time. When you enter information in one area of the software, it is immediately present in the rest of the system. No waiting for overnight interface. Change log provides backup for any changes that have been made as well as safeguards in the approval process. Administrative ease - The system is very straight forward, logical, and easy to operate from the administrative end. [There is a] designated representative to address questions as they arise. No sitting on hold.,Reporting - We have six different business units and the reporting is separate for all three. Most reporting I do requires information from all business units so am running six reports and then copying and pasting to get the report I need. Multi-state taxes - We have a number of employees who live in New York and work in New Jersey. APS OnLine is designed to accommodate one state withholding so ability to have "worked in" state and "lived in" state taxes withheld went away. This was a shortfall. The Carrier connection setup took much longer than expected. After a year, we are still having some issues with some items transferring over to the GL. The CA overtime calculation does not calculate after 8 hours per day, only on the 40 per week so we override each week. Reporting - when running Benefit reports, it recognizes employees who formerly carried the plan but may have dropped it. To get around this, we have to delete off the employee's record so the history is not readily available.,9,We are still in the early stages of APS Online use, so a number of the platforms we have not had the opportunity to put in play. Customer service is a big plus. As we have transitioned, whenever there has been a question or a tweak that we require, APS is quick to respond and address my concerns. Overall, annual cost of running payroll is comparable to our prior system and others I reviewed. However, we eliminated one full-time position and additional savings in manpower due to reduced data entry. We no longer have to download our weekly reports. They are maintained and not overwritten by new reports each run. The savings and continuity of information all in one place will benefit all of our employees. Provides daily stats to give quick insight to managers on various facets of the business that they did not have before with having to run a specific report.,ADP Workforce Now and ADP eTime,NetSuite,250,2,Ease of use/employee engagement Reduction of labor Reduction of paper Cost Functions,We only implemented a few months ago so still working through things.,Online reviews Online Open Enrollment Online Policy/handbook,10,Yes,Price Product Usability Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor Analyst Reports,I would get more details on the timeline of the implementation, what would be loaded, and what I would need to do after the installation. I would've pushed back the conversion if it meant my carrier connections and GL structure would have been in place when we went live.,Vendor implemented,Yes,Change management was minimal,Dual state taxation and employees who had reached the maximum for some deductions were impacted. This is still being worked on. 401k and other benefit connections. I did not anticipate I would be manually updating enrollments for 3 months. Accrual balances. For some reason, the accrual calculation did not activate appropriately so had to recalculate and reset employees numerous times.,7,Online training Self-taught,No,10,Yes,This is routine. I call with a small tweak and it's done within minutes. If it's a bigger deal, it has been escalated without my asking.,Entering data Processing payroll Employee access Time off Request process Management approval setup,The need to pull reports from each business entity and then combining [them] on a spreadsheet to get all information in one format. Dual state taxation. Paid Time Off usage. Employees need to put in Time Off Requests 2 days in advance and many employees take a few hours off at end of day, so has to be entered by admin. California payroll processing. System isn't calculating overtime at 8 hours daily as law requires, so this is currently a manual process. We also have a couple of employees whose overtime rate doesn't calculate and carry over correctly, so we must override prior to processing each week.,Yes,10Love is not a strong enough word!We are using the payroll function and the HR function. We are using it across the entire organization and APS OnLine has allowed us to own our data better. It has been a very useful tool for our operations, payroll, and administrative staff.,The report function has become a critical tool in our daily life. APS Online has really created a user friendly system to run reports and create reports. Customer Service -- every connection with APS Online has been great! We use the chat feature, submitted tasks, and contacted our manager. They are quick at resolving our issues and are so warm. New Hire wizard -- makes hiring a breeze!,I wish the employee search bar was always open at top so I didn't have to go into the employee consul to search for an employee. As much as I love the report manager, I wish the report builder would allow me to have access to ALL of my information to write a report. As it stands with the 5 main topics, I may have to run two reports to get the information that I need. ACA reporting is helpful but I wish the FTE report would downloadable as a CSV or Excel file.,10,We are about to start offering benefits and APS OnLine has made the transition so much easier--I feel they understand my needs and have thought through how to help us be compliant.,ADP,7,3,Employee Data Legal Compliance Payroll,Asset Management OSHA reports,Benefits Time and Attendance,9,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor Analyst Reports,Nothing! We loved calling the current users and getting their perspective. It was an easy sell!,Vendor implemented,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,Past pay information--it was cumbersome for the implementation team but they were rock stars getting it done!,10,Online training In-person training Self-taught,9,9,Yes! Very intuitive in its design.,8,No,No - we have not done any customization to the interface,No - we have not done any custom code,N/A,No,9,We had an issue where some dates were showing up incorrectly and we contacted our manager and she had a whole team fixing the problem. It was remedied overnight!,The layout makes it very user friendly The reporting tiles were a huge plus for our ownership Submitting payroll is a dream,Running past payroll information took a bit of time to learn how to do.,9,9,9,9,NA,None,File import/export,8,NA,9,9,None,None,No,Time and attendance will be a great upgrade for us soon,Time and attendance,No
