Until a year ago we still used paper time sheets and each month hours were manually entered into Banner for our University to pay our employees. We decided it was finally time to start using an electronic system for employees to keep track of work time and paid leave.
We began using EmpCenter about 1 year ago and rolled it out over 6 months to all of our employees. Our payroll is confusing because we have Classified (Union) employees, Faculty, Students, etc., so many types of employees with various levels of eligible leave and overtime rules. We had to find a system that work for all of these types of employees but was still affordable (we are a State university) and easy for our end users and worked with Banner.
So far EmpCenter has been a work in progress. Many of the things we thought would be easier have become easier over time. Although the implementation has not been as smooth as we wanted and some of the items we were told would be easy to program have not been as easy as we thought and have cost us more money. Although, overall, it has been a system that is more accurate in recording time than our previous paper time sheets and makes us more compliant with things like overtime eligibility.
