Overall Satisfaction with Kronos Workforce Ready

Global Support is terrific. In a perfect world, I'd have a specific individual assigned to my account.
Kronos is used as our database for human resources, payroll and ACA recordkeeping across our entire organization; timekeeping and accrual functions are used only for our non-attorney staff. We have 10 offices in 6 states and the system allows us manage all the different nuances associated with each of those seamlessly. Having electronic records - in cloud based storage - has been a lifesaver, not only in terms of physical space, but when the need arises to produce historically records.

Pros

  • Reporting - standard reports are easy to use; custom reports are easy to build and download to excel for additional manipulation.
  • Kronos routinely updates the system with new features/functionality and keeps the system up-to-date with tax updates and other regulatory changes.
  • Customer Support - top notch!

Cons

  • While the system allows some customization, there are areas I wish more could be added to at least allow sections/fields not used to be hidden to allow the screen to be less cluttered.
  • Training - for organizations that don't fully implement initially, it would be nice to have access to an actual training class
  • Reduced payroll errors by the use of an electronic timekeeping system
  • Better able to monitor overtime

We moved to Kronos in 2014 after evaluating the following other products:

  1. Ceridian Dayforce
  2. Paychex
  3. Ultipro

Kronos was selected not only based on the price point but on the overall product capabilities and the needs of our organization.

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Kronos Workforce Ready is well suited for a mid-sized business looking to incorporate their Human Resources, Payroll and Timekeeping/Accrual functions into a single environment. It provides all the necessary tools needed to support those functions without the sticker shock of systems designed for larger organizations. Groups looking for just one of the functions mentioned above will find that they too can get what they need now and add other services later if desired.
