TimeIPS Software


 

TimeIPS is a complete time and attendance system for companies in a wide range of industries. The system is a competitive choice to businesses seeking a single, comprehensive solution to improve accuracy within time-tracking and payroll. By automating time and attendance tracking, TimeIPS can help save money by quickly preparing information for payroll, while also eliminating mistakes inherent to calculating time cards manually.

TimeIPS offers many features that are unique to the system, including the complete management of benefits, scheduling, overtime, auditing, work orders and even tips or bonus pay. Electronic benefit requests and approvals save valuable company time, and electronic timesheet approvals make employee management simple and more efficient. The system can be customized and offers a number of custom data fields, as well as a custom report writer and numerous built-in reports.

TimeIPS supports a number of different time clocks, including telephone clocking, Web-based clocking and walk-up clocking with or without biometrics (available as either fingerprint scanning or hand geometry). Other walk-up clocking methods are available as well, including proximity cards, magnetic cards and barcode scanners, providing a wide assortment of options. TimeIPS works seamlessly with hundreds of payroll and accounting solutions, and offers direct exports to systems like QuickBooks and Sage 100 Contractor (formerly Master Builder).

TimeIPS is suitable for small to midsize companies in most verticals. The system's permission control system also makes it suitable for PEOs and staffing firms. Deployment is available as either Web-based or on-premise, and the system can usually be up and running within a few weeks.

The only thing I am not 100% happy with is the way the automatic lunch break functions.

The basic feature of the software is easy to use and understand. The customer support has been excellent.

Likes Least

The software menu for advanced features is still very technical and not as user-friendly for people who are not as capable on a computer.

Recommendations

The customer support for any product is invaluable. Verify with any potential vendor about their customer support program before purchasing.

It is easy to use. The reporting function has all the reports we need, and it is not too complicated.

Likes Least

There isn't any ongoing support unless you pay for it.

Recommendations

If you are in need of an inexpensive system that is not complex, this is a great option. I believe it can be more complex than how we use it, but we like to keep things simple. The exporting functions are very easy to use and nice. Make sure you understand the support aspect after purchase and get your money's worth the first few months you are able to.

Sometimes when clocking out, it clocks me out two minutes before the actual time I clocked out.

Clocking me in our out at the actual time I am entering would be perfect.

I like the ease of clocking in and out. I can request time off via web and am able to view carried hours concurrently.

There are many options available that we do not use. It's confusing to be able to view features that the employees will not use, such as reporting.

Not sure; this is the first timekeeping system I have used.

I don't like how some forms of time are displayed in the hour:min:sec format and how others are as decimals. I would like to see it uniform across the board.

Recommendations

This product will save you time and money. It's fast and very easy to use. The support staff is very courteous and helpful; you can't go wrong.

When certain features were not obtainable, such as notifying employees of an approved time off request. Certain features for the tracking of salaried employees' hours

Recommendations

Prioritize your system requirements. It's unlikely that a program will have all features. Weigh the pros and cons.

The documentation for TimeIPS is extremely good. They have help (that can be hidden after you learn the system) right on each page explaining what it is doing and giving helpful hints. The online documentation is also very robust. With previous experience with a timekeeping system and the documentation provided, I have rarely needed help with the implementation setup.

Their support has been excellent. They have solved any issues we have had and even rolled out a bug fix well in time for our go-live date.

The user interface and the options it gives are excellent. It is obvious they have put time and effort into making the web interface easy to use. The help on each page is great (as is the fact that it can be hidden). The top bar can be hidden when viewing reports, giving more screen real estate. There is an option for just about any list of data, reports, or configuration to export to a csv file for easy charting and data manipulation.

I also like that they have an onsite option. I am not yet convinced the cloud is the way to go. They have a nice little locked down Linux box that you simply plug in similar to a network appliance; just configure the network and away you go!

The time clocks they use are not flashy or pretty, but they work better than the flashy ones we have. We have had little issue with dirty, greasy shop floor hands/fingers. And they have a replaceable keypad, so after the guys punch (literally) the keys for a few years, we can swap it with another $10 USB keypad.

But one of the best and most surprising features is the extremely powerful payroll export engine. They have options for delimited, fixed width, justification, optional data, and even expressions so you can do data manipulation on the fly as you create the payroll export. It is a very powerful tool. I was fully expecting to have to do after-the-export data manipulation to the expected output, but TimeIPS was able to fully support our needs out-of-the-box!

I would be amiss not to mention the cost. The price, at least for the basic modules, was the lowest of the products we decided to compare. You are allotted a certain amount of hours for implementation (that I have not needed to use) and you get support for a year. You can purchase a support agreement each year, if desired, and that is reasonably priced. Overall, this product represents great value.

Likes Least

One drawback is the department transfer feature is rather weak. I find this odd, as that seems like a pretty generic requirement. They did implement a bug fix on it, but overall, I think this could be improved.

The only other minor problem is that "time snaps," as they call them, are not configurable per shift or schedule, but only by payroll group. Those terms may not make sense unless you are familiar with the product, but it is just an odd way of setting a group time adjustment.

Licensing module mix up! We are using a pretty basic version of the software. It's pretty much strictly timekeeping. There are many additional modules you can purchase if you need more. This seems like it could be one drawback if you have diverse and complicated needs. For instance, you need additional licenses/module for employees to clock in from a web browser. That one especially seemed a bit too much!

Recommendations

Always go through the demonstrations and play with the demo server if they have one. Hands-on use is a great way to get a feel for the usability of the product and to see some specific features in action.

Frankly, most HR/Timekeeping software can do the basic tasks pretty well. They try to differentiate through the advanced features, such as performance review management, job tracking, and applicant tracking. If you need those features, spend your time reviewing those areas as most software can handle the basic tasks.

I like the message system that allows me to have a message appear to all my employees when they clock in. It is difficult to communicate to all employees because we don't have an intra email system, so this helps get the word spread around.

Likes Least

I do not like that we have to pay for extra service hours and we can't call in whenever we want without worrying about being on the clock for it or service problems.

Recommendations

See if it works for your business. This is a really cheap platform that has been comparable to the time software of other more expensive companies
