APS software


APS (Automatic Payroll Systems, Inc.) has been providing payroll and tax compliance services to companies for almost two decades. In 2004, they released their APS, their cloud-based solution for human capital management. 

APS delivers tools for managing core human resources (HR), payroll, time and attendance and absence management. Since APS uses a centralized database, once employee information is entered into the system, it is immediately available across all modules. Employees and managers can access APS from any smartphone or tablet. ClockZonesTM is their mobile time clock that utilizes GPS tracking to control wherever employees clock in and out.

APS is focused towards small to midsize organizations. They're suitable for restaurants, health care facilities, oil and gas and wholesale and supply companies, as well as churches and nonprofits. APS connects each client with a dedicated account manager who has worked with payroll previously.

    Pros

    Very easy to maintain and edit employee data. The software has a great report writing system once you learn how to maneuver it. The software is extremely user friendly.

    Cons

    The report writing is a little tricky. Once you have all your go to reports set up it's easy to run them.

    We have been with APS for several years now and although at times have found some glitches, APS typically is fast to roll out an update to the fix. Most of the customer reps we have worked with over the years have been terrific and helpful!

    Pros

    Has the ability to manage soup to nuts under one cloud based software. We like having both payroll and managing HR functions (performance reviews, personnel documentation, etc) all in one place.

    Cons

    We find glitches at times in parts of the software that really seem like they should have been caught at beta testing. Some of the are so evident it amazes us that other customers aren't pointing them out sooner than us (we have less than 40 employees)

    APS has been great to work with so far. We have tried a couple of other small payroll providers and explored options with ADP and Paychex. APS hit the sweet spot for our company as far as features, value, and personalized customer service.

    Cons

    The payroll approval process for our managers is slightly confusing because it is not clear when payroll has been approved for salaried employees.

    Our HR and Payroll departments are working much more closely together and we have cross trained more than we were able to do before using APS. The customer service team is very responsive and helpful.

    Pros

    Once we were through the implementation process, it really has streamlined our payroll process and added HR functions that we did not have electronically before.

    Cons

    There have been applications that we would have liked to have that weren't available or were coming in the future, but we have been able to adapt.

    Pros

    I love the fact that APS is able to integrate so many different functionalities in to one system. Prior to APS my company had 3 different systems where APS has been able to house all those functionalities in to one system.

    Cons

    There are very few things that I dislike about the system. One thing that would be helpful is if there was a better communication between companies. Currently custom reports are not able to be saved across companies. Also when employee records are transferred from company to company not everything pulls over.

    APS is constantly making improvements within all areas. It's great to see the added functions and hear from our employees how easy it is to use this system. Customer service is exceptional! Our account manager responses to questions and issues very quickly and keeps you informed and updated to the status of the ticket. Everyone that you work with is very knowledge and willing to help in anyway they can.

    Cons

    Only thing lacking would be allowing the system to capture potential applicants. Would love to use this system as an all inclusive HRIS system. I think that's a future possibility which would be great! Otherwise, no other complaints.

    Our previous payroll platform was eliminated by our provider and we were forced to select another one. We picked APS from several providers and have been very pleased with out selection.

    Pros

    Product is very user friendly and the support staff are exceptional, and very willing to assist in times of need.

    Cons

    Nothing really. APS has met or exceeded our expectations. Any problems that arouse in the beginning were handled quickly and effectively.

    My experience has had some good and some bad. I feel the customer service is great but I don't feel the system meets our companies needs as I have to track several things manually because the system does not track them correctly.

    Pros

    The system is pretty user friendly. I like the fact that the majority of reports export into excel. Customer service team is always readily available to help and very responsive.

    Cons

    There are issues with transferring employees from company to company. The system does not cap deductions correctly.

    Because of the dual (APS Online & Eselfserve.com) software for admin and users I am able to communicate with managers and staff easily. Things look the same and I can guide a user on the site without having the manual handy.

    Pros

    Very easy to use. The website is clean and clear..not full of clutter. Easy to locate what I need for payroll.

    Cons

    The reporting features are a litter cumbersome. I wish I could with ease choose more reporting options for my organization. I normally have to call to run a new report.

    Love having an assigned Customer Rep to work with. And our customer rep is supported with other customer reps if they aren't available when we call.

    Pros

    It is straight forward payroll processing. It has been well thought out by the software designers who strive to understand the client's needs for special reporting. We are a Farm Equipment Dealership with multiple locations. From our first day with APS they have worked to learn our business needs. We have also provided "tips" on how to make the products more user friendly and they listen and implement.

    Cons

    If they could streamline the HRIS module to interface with the Payroll module so employee information for some things such as deductions would not have to be entered twice that would save much time from the user standpoint.

    Anyone can process payroll with this software, it is super easy to use. It is the most affordable payroll outsourcing company with human resource features on the market. The report manager feature has cut down on the time to produce management, workman's comp, and audit reports. The customer support is the best I have ever seen, they promptly get back to me with issues and questions and are always friendly.

    Cons

    The time clock is very difficult for people to use on their phone since they are constantly having to clear their cookies. It is also impossible to use the phone clocking in/out feature if you are in a building with a metal roof.
    I wish it had more options for hourly employee's who's time rounds up.
