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.

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.

I like that you can enter misc days ahead of time, I like that employees can check their own vacation/personal time.

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.

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.

Since the recent upgrade we have had continual problems and the support from epay has been less than satisfactory. We continually have issues with location set up, invalid pins among other issues. When calling into epay, the customer service rep we deal with people who struggle to give us answers and or are told they will escalate it to IT. When the issue is escalated we end up having to follow up rather than receive a call with a resolution.

Prior to EPAY our company handled payroll manually with timecards, faxing, and phone calls. We also run payroll weekly, so every week would be the same mistakes and the same issues that would take an entire day to correct. Now with time clocks and EPAY software we rarely if ever have mistakes and weekly payroll takes minutes. Savings have been incredible.

Good morning,

Reporting is frustrating. I would like to see an employee record on one page, for all departments. I like simple arrays of data, no merged cells, no subtotals. Just data that I can export to do analysis.

Also, programming is not adequately tested in my opinion. After a recent version upgrade, when editing a lunch punch, the type of punch was changing from "Lunch" to ST. When I spoke to a service rep, they just stated that it was how the system was programmed. I stated it was a new problem and argued that changing a punch type should not be a passive, program-driven action, that it needed to be an active decision by an administrator. I wasn't happy with their response. As an employer, I have a problem with paying people for their off-duty lunch breaks.

Also, when an employee switches departments (at lunch break), the result is a split punch. For example, an employee whose home department is Growing, but clocks in for the morning in Maintenance. When he clocks out for lunch, the punch goes to his home department. So, we end up with multiple punches missing an in/out punch. The punches are there, but they are split between departments. We have employees with language and communication challenges. It could be that they need some training, but it would seem to me that when the employee in the example punches out for lunch, the department for the lunch punch would be the same department at the start of the shift. I'll try to save some screen shots, should you want to see some examples.

Thank you.

Pros

Ease of export into Paychex

The EPAY payroll system has saved us thousands of hours and thousands of dollars annually. The system is very user-friendly and what is great is that it interfaces with our payroll system so you do not have to change the way you do business to get a payroll system. The support is terrific and you can get in touch with someone 24 hours a day. I would recommend the system to any business that wants to save time and money.

Pros

Simple to train and learn on your own.

Cons

A few bugs in the new release that are being addressed.

Advice to Others

There should be an online manual for assistance.

The pros about the system are the reporting, import/export, and time card tools. They are easy to use and access the data needed.

Cons is the system only allows you to go back 93 days from the current date; this should have a longer time frame so the customer can access themselves. Another con would be the reporting when printed in PDF, does not have a layout design to make the reports look like official reports.

We have been using Blueforce since September 2014 and really like it overall. It is easy to use as an administrator and most of our users/employees find it quite easy to use as well. The system allows for real time recording and more control over payroll payout. Our payroll errors have gone down 50 percent!

A couple cons that we don't like is that Blueforce isn't very compatible with Internet Explorer alternatively it is compatible with Chrome. Also, some of the reporting could be better as well.
