Ok program but the ease of use could be better with better customer support response time.

Pros

Once you learn to operate is is easy but you have to be taught. It is not plug and play for the most part.

Cons

Customer support was difficult and wait times were mediocre, more staff and better tutorials need to be implemented.

It is not flexible to run on different browsers. Limited compatibility and seems to have issues with Java. Hard to get a hold of support.

Pros

I have used Kronos as a salaried employee to maintain manage my time - hours worked, vacation days, sick days. I found the reports really useful and I liked having access to the data without having to request it from my HR department. I would audit my hours which was useful as my manager had once coded a national holiday as a vacation day. I was able to catch it and correct it.

Cons

I found the interface to be very dated and not as easy to use as other systems. I would have appreciated information/help sections in the interface to help guide me.

Kronos-Helpful Tool for Employees to Record Time and Access Payroll Information

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

I would recommend this product to larger organizations as it streamlines the payroll process and has robust reporting.

Pros

Especially helpful for managing payroll for employee scattered in the region. I found the tool was very easy for employees to learn and easy for them to document their time even if recording time out of the office. Employees could access their pay information from home and able to print a summary of all the paystubs. It also kept track of their hours earned for PTO and recalculated as they used their PTO hours. This probably worked best for larger businesses such as a 100+ employees.

Cons

Obviously the software cost was a little pricey but the return on the investment of saving time and resources to calculate payroll was quick with a large employee base. It still requires a manager to prompt employees to record their time. It was difficult to make the employee realize that it was their accountability to record their time but even with non-compliance by the employee, it is always the responsibility of the manager to pay the employee. This is more of an business policy then a fault of the software.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There are a number of bugs and glitches that have blocked staff from logging in for hours and even days at a time.

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.
