    Our payroll administrator and HR administrator use the system daily. It is a great asset for tracking virtually all human resource and payroll/benefit functions. Now that we have it, couldn't live without it.

    Pros

    Handles all phases of personnel management, applicant tracking to termination. Creating and pulling reports in a variety of formats has never been easier. We have found very little that WFR can not do. Having the Community and the support website is a huge benefit as well.

    Cons

    The only con (and this really isn't a bad thing) is there are so many configurable options and settings, that sometimes too much time is spent on how to do something. That's when we usually get on the Community for assistance.

    Work Force Ready Review from an actual client

    Value for Money

    This is a system that I am in every single working day & I know I could better utilize some of the features offered, but I just haven't had the training to reach the maximum benefit level.

    Pros

    The technical support team does a pretty good job with quick fixes, but I would recommend having a group of technicians being dedicated to one client. I have had in the past one support technician fix an issue and then the next one "fixed" it another way. Notifications for system wide issues has greatly improved. The ability to format the reports is very helpful.

    Cons

    My one complaint is I have never heard back from from any technical issue that has been referred up the chain to an engineer. I realize that I need to allow time for research of the problem and then time for a workable solution, but as I mentioned I have never received a follow up call from an engineer. I have also left messages for my area rep that have gone unanswered.

    I've been disappointed in the customer service, ticketing, community website and reporting features. I do believe that the software is robust and can meet 80% of my needs if I just knew how to use them and if some of the reports were more friendly.

    Pros

    Search features are so easy to use and adding columns to the all employee view
    Viewing of information
    Applicant tracking features

    Cons

    Some of the reports do not work together. Columns/Fields are not available for every report needed.
    Creating a history of moves
    Needs a rehire start date and then actual seniority date would be calculated

    I know we have an older version, need to take time to find out what upgrade offers and cost.

    Pros

    Very little customer service needed. What we do with Kronos has been reliable at all locations and easy for employees to use.

    Cons

    I'm sure software is capable of much more than I use it for but it's just not obvious. The few times I did need customer service they were not readily available to answer my question.

    As a client I had to make my team commit time to this implementation. We followed the implementation plan provided by KRONOS.

    Pros

    This application is extremely user friendly. We worked with the KRONOS implementation team very closely to provide an easy experience for our users.
    It took some time testing but it is worth making the time.

    Cons

    If the client does not follow or commit time for this type of implementations ... the result will not be successful.

    The integration of time, HR, benefits, payroll and recruiting. Reporting capabilities is a plus for them. Software is fairly easy to use. They upgrade often and strive to make the product better.

    Can get complicated if a multi-EIN, multi-location company. Set up will take some time if you have complicated attendance and pay policies.

    Pros

    Running reports in Kronos is very easy. Gather required data takes seconds. End users also seem to adapt rather quickly.

    Cons

    We experience occasional slowness in the system. This is typically short lived but can impact Supervisor engagement.

    implementation was structured, felt comfortable going "live", any tweaks needed after go live are easily and promptly handled by support.

    Pros

    reporting capabilities, payroll functionality, easy to use time clocks, communication from support if latency or issues arrise, Kronos Community is easy to use and most often I find the answers to my questions there without having to create a case.

    Cons

    some limitations in FTE reporting, added leave reporting and ACA module after inital purchase--smaller modules seem not as supported or functional.

    You release the new site link however not all settings have been updated on the site link. Why release the link when it isn't fully operational?

    Pros

    Ability to run adhoc reports with your own filters. easily assign security roles and groups for visibility

    Cons

    customers service is normally on a different time zone. if issue is resolved in a release there is no notification on the case comments. government reporting has to be done manually. Unable to add filters to these reports.

    There's potential, here, but Kronos WFR leaves a lot to be desired. The Cloud storage is ideal as it's portable and viewable anywhere. However, the headaches and frustrations that my team encounters (and employees utilizing the employee-self-service feature), outweigh the positives.

    Pros

    Cloud-based system, great Kronos support/community, employee self-service, ease of submitting a tech issue case.

    Cons

    - Seems everything I need WFR to do requires a "request for enhancement"
    - The things I need, that are unable to be accommodated, are very basic: file uploads being able to be sorted by ABC instead of date, running a report that has all Open Enrollment data that I need in one query (requiring manual review/combination of two separate reports), trend analysis, workflows allowing attachments (to digitize accounting functionality / check requests, etc.).

    I was a part of the implementation team for Kronos Workforce Ready at my company. It was hard to implement because we didn't have a lot of data that they needed, and honestly the data migration needed multiple "bad batches" of data because their team wasn't prepared to implement the changes we discussed.

    Pros

    I like how easy it is to learn how to run reports and make them work for our business. In addition, it is nice being able to send documents and tasks to employees and corporate team members without having to do extra manual work.

    Cons

    Kronos will tell you can customize evvverything in their system, but it's a lot of talk to be honest. It's hard because you'll want to add in a single field that's unique that you can also run a report on, but you can either add it and not report on it, or add it into a field that doesn't make sense and then not report on it.

    I am very glad we swithced from ADP to Kronos it has made my life stress free.

    Pros

    The way you can choose the columns for reports and make the report specific to my needs. Also you can put all of the information you need in front of you on your profile to use, this cuts down on searching for items you use on a daily basis. I also like that you can bring up all of your employee's at once and can search for them in different ways. Customer service at Kronos is acceptional they have alway been able to help me or they find a way to help me.

    Cons

    As a city employer we have a very challenging payroll the system hasn't been able to fully make the fire timesheets automatic, there is still some thing that I have to go into the time sheet and make manual changes.
    It was a challenge to get the system together there were a lot of hiccups in the beginning but they have so far been worked out.

    My favorite thing about this software is that you can view your work schedule for both the upcoming and past months. The clock in/clock out times are so precise and its an easy way to keep track of my hours.

    Cons

    It is not the most user friendly and seems a little bit outdated. I wish there were less steps in order to check the status on requested time off, since there is a round-about way of getting to the right page.
