Unhappy

Implementation person disappeared at a critical time and no response to emails. No phone number to contact for backup support.

PROS

Relatively cheap for what it does. Was supposed to integrate Time and Attendance with Payroll and have added HR modules.

CONS

Unable to implement in the agreed timeframe. Still unable to go-live after 9 months so ditched the implementation and went elsewhere.

Reason for choosing Definitiv

It was initially cheaper and appeared to suit our needs

Reasons for switching to Definitiv

Time and attendance system ceasing and wanted an all in one package

So Many Options!

So far it's been great.

PROS

It's so customisable. I love the reporting centre, and the date driven nature means I can track all changes over time.

CONS

Would love the option for a separate approver for leave requests and timesheets. Our business has different approvers for timesheets to those who approve leave, so we've had to allocate all approvals to one person (timesheet approver), and continue with our manual leave request process.

Reasons for switching to Definitiv

Our old system would only capture timesheet data, but not process pay runs or STP, so we were importing into a second system to process the actual pays.

Vendor Response

Hi Chelsea, We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review for Access Definitiv. Reach out to your Account Manager about how you can work out the best process for separate approvers for leave requests and timesheets. Thank you for choosing Definitiv!

Really bad

Negative experience, for something that should be so simple, I found it incredibly time consuming and difficult to use adding to our already busy workload!

PROS

Picture recognition for staff sign in was cool. It has a lot of potential

CONS

Lots, it was incredibly hard to set up a simple roster using their program If someone missed a sign in or sign out it was really hard to edit to their correct hours When adding annual leave it kept doubling up on their hours, example, I would add 7.5 hours annual leave and it would appear on Definitiv as 15 hours Hard to edit timesheets and rosters

Reasons for switching to Definitiv

Head office decided it had better data so we trialed it but ended up going back to Wageloch

Would love someone at Access/Definitiv Senior Management to contact me to discuss.

Very disappointed. Would like to talk to someone in Senior Management to try and get the outstanding issues resolved. We have been trying to get these issues resolved since go-live over a year ago.

PROS

The system itself is quite easy to use however has not been developed correctly.

CONS

Can not get anyone to correct issues with system. Management show interest in helping for a short period and then just disappear - literally don't respond. Still have issues from go live that are not being resolved. Award set up errors that are not being resolved.

Reason for choosing Definitiv

Because they were local, promised to meet face to face yet after many requests this has still not happened.

Vendor Response

Hi Jessica, Thank you for your review of Access Definitiv. Please see below some more information from our team regarding backups: If a backup and restore is required this can be done by simply logging a ticket to the friendly customer support team which will go through to our development team to create a backup restore. This should only occur on very rare or catastrophic occasions in a production environment, but can be done at any time in a test environment. As this is done in the code of the product, it has been segregated for a purpose, with the responsibility held within the technical expertise of the business. Please reach out if you need assistance and thank you for choosing Definitiv.
