Pros

-Great accurate way for time keeping
-Relatively easy user interface for basic functions
-Does all the basic functions

Cons

-Retroactively changes the history of employees when you change their position, department, or job for all the years. So it's not a very efficient tool for HR employee tracking
-If you really want to get into depth of all the features, you will need to be a bit tech savvy
-Not very dynamic, only has very basic features
-Occasional glitches in punches and online system

Pros

Ability to change hours between departments at a manger level. Just because you clocked into a department and ran into OT while clocked into that department didn't mean your OT had to be allocated to that department. Mangers were able to change or reallocate that OT. Information flowed nicely from NOVAtime to Paychex Preview via .csv export.

Cons

We used Nova time about 5 years ago. It was very archaic. The interface was not very user friendly or intuitive. It could not support PTO tracking.

We've used Novatime for over 10 years. We currently run in-house with 5 clocks, phone clock in and users logging in via the employee kiosk. We do not have the system calculate accruals, however, we import them from our payroll system and do use them to keep employees from going over their earned time off. We also use the vacation scheduling feature.

Pros

Many features and once you know where to set them up it is pretty easy. Easy to import our accruals from our hr system; many reports and ability to schedule them to various users is a wonderful feature. Good notification system - we use this to notify supervisors if employees are going over 40 hours a week. Though it could be set up for many more instances. We also just set up to notify a supervisor if an employee has submitted a time-off request.

Like the ability to track where employees are punching in from - not an issue for the most part.

Cons

Because the system does so much; it can appear complicated to set up. We are too small of a company to have Novatime themselves provide support, but our vendor (who we go through for support) is wonderful and quick to get back to us.

Advice to Others

This is a good system and when we bought it - reasonably priced. As I said we host in-house and I think they are getting away from that. This meets all of our needs and we are slowly using more of the features.

System is pretty easy to use. Anytime I need help just call the support line and majority of the time my issue is resolved on the first call.

Pros

Ability to run customized reports and the timely support provided.

Cons

Different URLs needed for the admin, for supervisor and employee. Would be nicer if all logged in to same URL and then just configured different access rights

The vendor treats it's customers as family. Phone calls and or emails returned timely; solutions, resolutions and options always available for any type of issues. Issues are limited to none per year. I have been using the software and the clocks for over 5 years now and there are years we have no issues at all but over 1000 employees swipe day in and day out. Very simple software and does not require much training.

Likes Least

Like them too much, cannot find anything. I wish there was something to find, but for now they are SUPER.

Recommendations

Test before you commit to a contract, call us for references and even do a site visit to closest location using product to make sure you are getting what you have envisioned.

The interface is user friendly and looks modern and clean. We have rarely (like, maybe once) had any downtime, the system is always up and running. The NOVAtime employee's I've built a relationship with are interested in helping find what works for my organization.

Likes Least

I can't point to any specific "dislikes" about the product. If there is a function that I wish worked a different way, I can submit a request/suggestion for that functionality, or speak to someone at NOVAtime who can point me towards different options, or talk about best practices with me.

Recommendations

My best advice when evaluating a prospective new software purchase is to know what you need and ask specific questions. Salesmen for any company will tell you "yes" to general questions, but drill down to specifics and don't be afraid to keep asking if you are not sure your question is being understood correctly. Ask for multiple demos and a trial, if possible.

When entering in my time, I would like to be able to press tab once to get to the next cell. It generally takes several tries before the cursor moves over.

Recommendations

I would look at the layouts of other software to see if there is possibly a more efficient design

Pros

Complete one stop for time keeping and payroll. Liabilities and reporting gives you almost too many options to choose from.

Cons

Web based makes operation slow and annoying to use during peak times. Also automatic log out is too short for all day use.

I get the benefit of being able to see when I arrive and leave work every day. I also can view all of my past and future time off requests. It is also useful for knowing how much vacation, sick and comp time I have available.

Pros

I like that I can check my history of what time I arrive to and leave work every day for any time period since we started using the product.

Cons

I don't like that after I enter a time off request I have to remember to save the request before leaving the screen or the request won't be processed.
