If I had to do it over again I would be a part of the evaluation and selection process. I would concentrate on how friendly will the platform be for our older generation of employees to use as that is where we seem to have most of out struggles. I would also want to see some type of user training not just for payroll administrators but for all employees.

We would need a more detailed report of what functions are in which module. Some functions are only available in some modules, and consultants need to be very good at knowing which is which. When a company is looking to purchase a program for a specific reason, this needs to be the most important thing when discussing the building of the program.

The only way that I would repeat all of this again, would be to have 'Broad Brush' controls over implementation and assistance from Kronos. Their methodology of implementation has been horrible, for such a powerful product it occurs as if their implementation teams have very little understanding of a 'User' experience with the product.

If we had to do it again I do not think the selection would be any different. The costs were so different that based on price alone the decision was easy. Add in the fact that our prior experience with Kronos was excellent and it became obvious what the choice should be.

Have IT involved from the onset. Often departments evaluate software and pick one based on their preferences, with minimal understanding of hidden costs such as hardware, extended licensing, maintenance, and after hours support. IT is better at digging past the sales pitch to how products really work and can keep a business unit protected from buying a product that doesn't really work for them despite what is advertised by the vendor.
