The product is very user friendly. Excellent product especially when customed designed to company's specific needs/request. Excellent trainers/customer service.

Overall, this is a very good user friendly/accessible product. It provides excellent time and attendance information needed/required. Reports provide detail information per selected specifications within the selected report. Great programmers/developers/ support staff to assist with customizing the application to your organization's needs/requirements.

Pros

Product featured/functionality when customized to specific needs / requests is provided with great training by EPAY training instructors to walk you through step by step how the requested functionality is to be applied. (Aliza is GREAT!!!)

Cons

Once in a GREEN moon there may be a delay in response to an inquiry that has been submitted to the helpdesk/technical team that requires research and testing; and requires a solution. This does not happen often but does occur at times. It is understandable that the helpdesk/technical teams do assist other customers and are working on other issues/requests submitted to them.

McCarthy Tire and EPAY

The EPAY payroll system has saved us thousands of hours and thousands of dollars annually. The system is very user-friendly and what is great is that it interfaces with our payroll system so you do not have to change the way you do business to get a payroll system. The support is terrific and you can get in touch with someone 24 hours a day. I would recommend the system to any business that wants to save time and money.

Pros

Simple to train and learn on your own.

Cons

A few bugs in the new release that are being addressed.

Finance Manager

Good morning, Reporting is frustrating. I would like to see an employee record on one page, for all departments. I like simple arrays of data, no merged cells, no subtotals. Just data that I can export to do analysis. Also, programming is not adequately tested in my opinion. After a recent version upgrade, when editing a lunch punch, the type of punch was changing from "Lunch" to ST. When I spoke to a service rep, they just stated that it was how the system was programmed. I stated it was a new problem and argued that changing a punch type should not be a passive, program-driven action, that it needed to be an active decision by an administrator. I wasn't happy with their response. As an employer, I have a problem with paying people for their off-duty lunch breaks. Also, when an employee switches departments (at lunch break), the result is a split punch. For example, an employee whose home department is Growing, but clocks in for the morning in Maintenance. When he clocks out for lunch, the punch goes to his home department. So, we end up with multiple punches missing an in/out punch. The punches are there, but they are split between departments. We have employees with language and communication challenges. It could be that they need some training, but it would seem to me that when the employee in the example punches out for lunch, the department for the lunch punch would be the same department at the start of the shift. I'll try to save some screen shots, should you want to see some examples. Thank you.

Pros

Ease of export into Paychex

Great for high volume restaurants

Overall, this is a great system.

Pros

Easy to use and easy to train employees. Back office is fairly simple offering more than you would expect.

Cons

Back office can be difficult to navigate through unless you've had thorough training. Easy access to credit card information.

The program has improved a lot since we first began with the company. They listened to our concerns and made the necessary adjustments.

Pros

The mobile app option when there are glitches

Cons

Sometimes the thumbprint on certain employees does not work consistently. Wish it didn't have to be manually synced each night.

EPay does exactly what I am asking of it.

At the start, the training they provided gave me all the info I needed. We do not use a lot of the functions, however, the ones we use are easy and is a time saver. They have had a couple of updates and are great about informing us of the updates. When I need help they are quick to respond and keep me on the right track. Overall I am very pleased with Epay.

Pros

The ease of use and the time saved

Cons

After the last update, it seems to freeze up occasionally

EPAY user review

Pros

EPAY makes clocking in and clocking out very easy. EPAY allows me to see exactly when my employees are clocking in and out. My favorite function is the ability to load vacation time right in to the system.

Cons

It does not recognize fingerprint all the time. Our clocks are located in the northeast, and it seems that when it is cold out, the recognition does not work properly all the time. When your hands are cold, the system will not read your fingerprint.

Cool Time Management Application

Pros

It has very cool ways to utilize the platform in a customizable way. For instance you can sort employees by the way they perform and what skills they have or by departments

Cons

Best for bigger businesses. Too much for a small business in terms of value. It just depends on how many employees a company has.

I work with this on a daily to weekly basis with employee times.

Pros

I wasn't so sure of this product when I first started, but I find it works well.
I like that you can enter misc days ahead of time, I like that employees can check their own vacation/personal time.

Cons

I dislike having to click on a time to enter a note and then wait for it to process before moving onto the next day to enter a note on same employee. The waiting time for each entry to process and update takes to long.

A great system and platform, but it's more like a service with POS devices than a simple app

Pros

service and platform that will allow you to manage all sales in field and the payment relationship with dealers and third parties, offering a single place to manage all POS transactions at the sales door. Reports are great and real time.

Cons

implementation is not easy and will require some help to setup the POS and all the items in inventory as well as the payment rules. It requires some sales doors to make it cost efficient.

Pros

Policing the employee breaks and monitoring payroll daily.

Cons

Due to the environment in the garages, the fingerprint function is not always an option. This will results in the employee requesting their employee numbers constantly. We have difficulties also with the heat and had to move the Walter unit several times.

Satisfied with the product.

Pros

The ability to run reports to get total hours for employees is a great tool. It makes tracking productivity easy.

Cons

I don't like the automatic lunch that comes out. Also, I don't like when you enter an employees hours on the time sheet as lets just say 8 and it assigns an actual time slot 7:30-4:00.

It took a bit of getting used to but well worth the trouble.

Pros

Our previous process was entirely manual. I don't miss the days of reviewing timecards and deciphering our tech's hieroglyphics.

Cons

At times the fingerprint reader can be difficult but its not a major issue.

Punching in and out daily

Pros

It makes it easy to keep track of my weekly time. Punching in is usually effortless.

Cons

Sometimes, the fingerprint sensor does not get a good reading, which results in having to scan my finger a few times.

store manager for mccarthy tire managing payroll for 15 employees

Pros

Fingerprint tracking of employees eliminates possible errors of punching wrong employees in. It tracks lunch - punch in/out. It's easy to manipulate data once its entered. It tracks payroll for several different pay types.

Cons

Too slow to update after revising entered payroll data. I cannot enter a reason in box when adding a time card. Inconsistent reading of employees fingerprints requiring employee to have to be re-registered multiple times with different fingers. The system needs to update more frequently. I need to be able to switch between time sheets and time cards faster

Pros

The product is very user-friendly, simple to use, and simple to train. The vendor is very responsive to issues and corrections.

Cons

It seems like there are some simple fixes or updates that would have been done by now. I have brought up some very simple issues, and they are still in development stage.

Blueforce

We have been using Blueforce since September 2014 and really like it overall. It is easy to use as an administrator and most of our users/employees find it quite easy to use as well. The system allows for real time recording and more control over payroll payout. Our payroll errors have gone down 50 percent! A couple cons that we don't like is that Blueforce isn't very compatible with Internet Explorer alternatively it is compatible with Chrome. Also, some of the reporting could be better as well.
