Kronos was very easy to use. From an admin perspective, Kronos was user friendly, simple design, and easy navigation. From a user perspective, also very easy to use.

Cons

The only con I can think of is the application piece. This may or may not have anything to do with the actual system but the way the app was set up. I found it to be user friendly but not all had the same feeling.

Pros

The system is very easy for front end users to navigate through the time attendance. Good functionality. The employee information page is inclusive and convenient for edit. The Accrual module is good - lot of options.

Cons

The default error message is too vague. It would be helpful if it can be more specific because the message does not always correlate to the real issue of the time entry.

To have a solid product every aspect needs to be seamless in my opinion. If we were to go back to the drawing board on choosing a time keeping system and I knew what I know now we would go with someone else.

Pros

Once it is up and running Kronos Support is great and very helpful. General system/software is easy to use and has a lot of very useful features. Day to day it does not have much upkeep once it is up and running. The overall software itself is able to be tailored to our needs to an extent.

Cons

Implementation team was terrible. Kronos outsources to a third party. Communication was horrible, very little explanation behind what goes into setting up the system. Our system is now filled with a ton of mess ups that were not able to be deleted due to miscommunication or simply not understanding what the other was saying. It was a horrible experience. For that reason I would urge people to look into a different product.

I cannot wait for my company to switch to a better platform like UltiPro.

Pros

It processes payroll and the reporting is okay. I can't think of anything else positive for this product.

Cons

No control to process manual checks, execute accruals, too many fees for wrong SSNs and direct deposit issues. Plus the employee interface is the most user un-friendly scheme ever!

I used the Kronos back when I was an employee a couple years ago and it was very convenient to have. All we had to do was swipe our card and everything would be stored for payroll.

Cons

The only thing I could point out to better the little computer you have to clock in and out. I'd better it and have it not lag so much. Because sometimes I'd clock in a couple minutes after I was supposed to cause it lagged.

I would recommend this to other clients, but would recommend doing 1 phase at a time. We tried to do 3 at one time and it was way too overwhelming and our timeline that we wanted in completed in was unrealistic.

Pros

This program offers so much good information, but can be difficult to find what your looking for and set up. The customer service help is awesome and is always willing to help get things the way you want.

Cons

The accruals portion needs some updates. They do not recognize future time off and give incorrect error messages. The mobile app for clocking in/out needs some updates- does not seem to work for all employees, but does for most. The set up process if very involved, but worth it in the end.

The clocks are resilient and easy to use, none of our employees have any complaints.

Pros

It is quick, accurate, and cloud based (so it is available everywhere). It combined our 4 locations, and digitized our PTO system while allow us to use the same access card for time keeping as we do for a door access system.

Cons

The biggest con for us is that it does not integrate with our payroll system (we use paychex flex). We are able to export hours from Kronos to Flex. Another con would be that the App feels a little out dated.

Pros

Over several years of using this product we've been able to work with the Kronos team to customize it to our exact specifications. It's solved a kep problem of employee time tracking for a remote workforce of hundreds.

Cons

So far we do not have functionality for attaching expense receipts and reporting on them easily. That is the only con that comes to mind.

Pros

Universal system that has legacy in the market. They have a strong reputation and know their way around HR platforms. Managers and help desk associates are attentive and they do have a process for escalation.

I think my biggest benefit from Kronos was being able to track time and attendance. My previous system did not do that so it was a great benefit and time saver for the system to do this for me.

Pros

It was an easy to system to train employees on and easy for most people to understand how to use the system.

Cons

One of the main cons of Kronos is the reporting system. I think it was difficult to use. Unless I had the report set up by Kronos it was difficult to set up.

I like the way I can get just what I'm looking for and how easy it is to do. When I need to look up missed punches it wraps them together so I can fix. Also easy to link all timecards together so I can just go card by card down the whole list. when I'm in a hurry I can look up name and time card pops up quick. When I just looking for temp employees that all that comes up.
