    Pros

    User friendly, especially for customers that may not be advanced using software systems. Customer service reps are hit and miss, but majority of them are helpful.

    Cons

    When looking for a software that can pair with other software systems to provide a full HRIS systems, this is probably not the system you are looking for.

    Cons

    non identified so far. The sw is very easy to use and has a lot of useful information. A section to customize reports will be helpful.

    It is worth getting this software only if there are many employees, otherwise it is not necessary. In general good functioning, it does what it is supposed to do.

    Pros

    It is very easy to record the time of the employees and it is very fast, considerably good point when you have many employees. The system lets you do your reports in great detail.

    Cons

    There are several fields in which the same information must be written as in previous fields, which increases the probability of human error.

    Overall good but it can improve visually.

    Pros

    How it helps manage everyday work tasks such as printing pay stubs or even clocking in/out.

    Cons

    Lacks design when accessed from a computer, looks very unappealing. System lags periodically resulting in lost time.

    The visuals of clocking in and out, and the ability to track 12 month history. Can easily go back and print off pay stubs if required.

    Cons

    There is nothing really bad about the program, easy to use the only downside being cannot clock in or out if the power goes out, other than that it is fantastic.

    I highly recommend getting the gold support package. Any issues we had were answered within an hour and the support technicians were HIGHLY knowledgeable about every aspect of the product.

    Pros

    This product is very easy to use from an IT and a Payroll perspective.
    The implementation was easy with the Gold Support package
    - Great documentation available
    - The support technicians helped for the entire process
    - No downtime whatsoever

    Cons

    I thought this was pretty expensive compared to some other products we looked at but for the amount of people we were integrating (2500 employees) it was worth every penny.

    track all my logs to get pay at the end of the week

    Pros

    I like the most about Kronos is the fact that al the logs in and out are register and at the time we need to run the payroll makes it easy to confirm the in and outs of all our colleagues .

    Cons

    we lost our Data once, but the Kronos team help up recover all the logs, so far I have no bad experience it is really worth it for the call center.

    Pros

    Kronos Workforce Central is vastly robust and customizable. There are a number of add-ons available enabling you to customize your environment to suit the needs of your business. Another lifesaver was the fact that they've moved away from Java dependency and have moved to HTML 5.

    Cons

    Honestly, its pro can actually be a con. The fact that it is so robust and configurable can also be a caveat. Supporting and configuring Workforce Central can end up being quite a chore due to the number of settings and options available.

    At first it is difficult to understand how to request partial days off. However, Once you do it one time it is intuitive.

    The old system one had to place their id code in first before placing their finger in. It has many times misread my fingerprint. Than I had to start over again. The new system avoids all of the above.

    Pros

    It reads one finger print instantly.

    Cons

    I had forgotten my password and log-in name. How does one retrieve it. Is their a phone number of which I can call? I try using KRONOS yet forgotten and or lost my data of my log-in name and password. How does one get back on. With using the applications etc?

    Look and feel are very good. Software shows a very presentable page for viewing. Software is fairly straightforward and easy to understand and use.

    Cons

    Scheduling is difficult and the software does not show items scheduled very far into the future. Limits the ability to see items occurring months out.

    Pros

    Works very well across an extensive network, reliable even in the event of network failure. Users were able to quickly pick up on how to clock in and out both from wall clocks and the web.

    Cons

    The admin web portal was often confusing and time consuming. We had a constant problem with SD card failure on our wall clock devices that always required an RMA from kronos to resolve the issue. Once we replaced all the SD cards the issue went away so we think it was a bad batch of SD cards from 2015.

    Pros

    I can clock in on any device on our network and streamlined the work of supervisors. It allows us to get started at work quicker and easier than the old time card system.

    Cons

    Initially training staff to use kronos was a mixed bag, it took several months for everyone to get the hang of things. There are a number of bugs and glitches that have blocked staff from logging in for hours and even days at a time. Kronos has also given employees who have multiple positions difficulty in switching between jobs on logging in.

    Easier to change schedules and app is great for on-the-go.

    Pros

    Flexible, easy to see everyone's schedule as the administrator. But employees can't see other employees schedules which makes it hard for people to switch shifts when they need to. The app is very straight forward and helpful. I like that my login is the same for all my other work related accounts.

    Cons

    Individual employee schedules get deleted for entire week occasionally which obviously leads to confusion. The preprogrammed shifts don't make any sense at all. The app is a little hard to set up.

    We are presently looking at bringing Kronos staff in to review our Business Process to ensure we are getting the most out of the system. I know there are features we are not taking advantage of.

    Pros

    The system seems to work well. Since we are a county we have several really odd schedules, Police and Fire, and some Health staff. So we have to get some configuration assistance to set up the special schedules. Once they get set up, they work fine for our staff. It also has an interface that sends data straight into our ERP, which is very beneficial.

    Cons

    We seem to have issues with Java and browsers a lot, but that may be due to us as much as the product

    It's very simple and easy to use. My employees just had to sign in with their user ID and Password to clock in or out. It was also easy for me to review their daily/weekly hours and edit them if needed. It was as simple and easy as it could get.

    Cons

    Like any software sometimes it crashed or freeze but nothing that closing the window and re-opening couldn't fix.

    Hi Ashwin, Thank you for your review. Interface Designer is a very powerful utility that can do a lot with your workforce management data. Interface Designer needs to be robust with the number of possible data exports and imports through the API, database, and more. If you have any questions or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me at chan.huot@kronos.com Thank you, Chan Huot

    Easy of use. It also cuts down work time by letting you get stuff done at home.

    Pros

    You can do your employee's time at home. This really helps me out as a manager because when time is due and I have to approve it (usually happens on a Monday) and it is a holiday, I no longer have to come to work to approve time. I can do it via a URL.

    Cons

    The only Con that I can think of is that the software's URL is super complicated. It could be easier to remember.
