Blueforce Software


 

Blueforce by EPAY Systems is a time and labor management system created to conform to the unique labor needs, compliance requirements and working environments of any organization. As a cloud-based system, Blueforce offers the options of mixing and matching a variety of time-tracking devices according to the specific needs of a company. 

The system also includes a labor-budgeting module that operates in real-time, providing maximum visibility into all labor expenses. Payroll dollars can be managed by site, client or task, and the system monitors expenditures and provides alerts when a company comes close to hitting a particular budget.

An employee scheduling module is included in Blueforce, which can alleviate issues associated with a paper schedule. This scheduling module ensures that all sites are appropriately staffed, and matches workers to the specific types of jobs that need to be done at each site.

Employees can view their schedules with an Internet connection from their laptop or PC, helping to improve attendance and decrease schedule mix-ups.

A self-service custom reporting feature provides insight into labor costs, and allows employers to filter reports by a variety of criteria, including by individual employee. These reports can help determine which job sites, departments and segments have the highest productivity rates, while also revealing which sites may need improvement.

Blueforce is suitable for business services, health care, construction, transportation, hospitality companies and more.

No negatives come to mind. My experience has been trouble free in the few months we have been using the system.

Recommendations

It only took 2 payroll cycles for me to be 100% comfortable using this system. Very easy to use for anyone at any level of computer experience.

Fingerprint tracking of employees eliminates possible errors of punching wrong employees in. It tracks lunch - punch in/out. It's easy to manipulate data once its entered. It tracks payroll for several different pay types.

Likes Least

Too slow to update after revising entered payroll data. I cannot enter a reason in box when adding a time card. Inconsistent reading of employees fingerprints requiring employee to have to be re-registered multiple times with different fingers. The system needs to update more frequently. I need to be able to switch between time sheets and time cards faster

Recommendations

Set up trial use with a small number of employees first to evaluate usefulness.

Our previous process was entirely manual. I don't miss the days of reviewing timecards and deciphering our tech's hieroglyphics.

Likes Least

At times the fingerprint reader can be difficult but its not a major issue.

Recommendations

Have adequate training before the system goes live.
Really take the time to train the techs how to use the system and access their info themselves.

Policing the employee breaks and monitoring payroll daily.

Likes Least

Due to the environment in the garages, the fingerprint function is not always an option. This will results in the employee requesting their employee numbers constantly. We have difficulties also with the heat and had to move the Walter unit several times.

Recommendations

Training would help and make sure that an administrator has been versed fluently with problem solving this system.

I wasn't so sure of this product when I first started, but I find it works well.
I like that you can enter misc days ahead of time, I like that employees can check their own vacation/personal time.

Likes Least

I dislike having to click on a time to enter a note and then wait for it to process before moving onto the next day to enter a note on same employee. The waiting time for each entry to process and update takes to long.

Recommendations

Don't let the first impression get you.
It took me a couple of weeks to get the hang of it. Now that I have it down some more I am comfortable with it.

Too much detail for my needs. Reports are difficult to navigate. Screen layout needs to be more user friendly. Very slow and cumbersome to use and navigate through.

Recommendations

Ask about streamlining the options and layout by user/location. Can you limit the amount of information shown so that any "back office" tasks and info are not overwhelming the screens?

It's much better than the hand-punched & manually added timecards we were using.

Website is not user-friendly. If you don't know how to do something, it can be nearly impossible to figure out. Luckily we have an in-house rep to call.

Recommendations

Use it for a while. Once you know how to do the things you need, it becomes easier.

The ability to run reports to get total hours for employees is a great tool. It makes tracking productivity easy.

Likes Least

I don't like the automatic lunch that comes out. Also, I don't like when you enter an employees hours on the time sheet as lets just say 8 and it assigns an actual time slot 7:30-4:00.

Recommendations

Have some patience. Once you get use to the system it is easy to use.

EPAY makes clocking in and clocking out very easy. EPAY allows me to see exactly when my employees are clocking in and out. My favorite function is the ability to load vacation time right in to the system.

Likes Least

It does not recognize fingerprint all the time. Our clocks are located in the northeast, and it seems that when it is cold out, the recognition does not work properly all the time. When your hands are cold, the system will not read your fingerprint.

Recommendations

Others need to realize that proper training is very important to the success of this product. You cannot install these time clocks and allow the managers and employees to use "trial by error" method to learn the proper way to use the time clock. Every manager should be trained one on one to ensure that they know exactly how to use the clocks and how all the features work.

It seems like there are some simple fixes or updates that would have been done by now. I have brought up some very simple issues, and they are still in development stage.

Recommendations

Do your homework on your internal company. Get details of all your departments schedules, employees, rates, etc. This will eliminate any surprises.
