Pros: It's extremely user-friendly, which was crucial in my particular environment.

Cons: The only thing I am not 100% happy with is the way the automatic lunch break functions.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're looking for a basic time system, this is a great choice!

We have used this product for about 4 months.

Pros: The basic feature of the software is easy to use and understand. The customer support has been excellent.

Cons: The software menu for advanced features is still very technical and not as user-friendly for people who are not as capable on a computer.

Recommendations to other buyers: The customer support for any product is invaluable. Verify with any potential vendor about their customer support program before purchasing.

Pros: It is easy to use. The reporting function has all the reports we need, and it is not too complicated.

Cons: There isn't any ongoing support unless you pay for it.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are in need of an inexpensive system that is not complex, this is a great option. I believe it can be more complex than how we use it, but we like to keep things simple. The exporting functions are very easy to use and nice. Make sure you understand the support aspect after purchase and get your money's worth the first few months you are able to.

Pros: I like the ease of clocking in and out. I can request time off via web and am able to view carried hours concurrently.

Cons: There are many options available that we do not use. It's confusing to be able to view features that the employees will not use, such as reporting.

Recommendations to other buyers: Not sure; this is the first timekeeping system I have used.

I love how easy it is to use. Excellent support staff.

Pros: I love the tools and the convenient layout of the entire product. Editing and adjusting is a breeze. Editing the time clock and managing employees has never been this easy. Thank you for this product!

Cons: I don't like how some forms of time are displayed in the hour:min:sec format and how others are as decimals. I would like to see it uniform across the board.

Recommendations to other buyers: This product will save you time and money. It's fast and very easy to use. The support staff is very courteous and helpful; you can't go wrong.

Pros: I like the ease of use and the promptness of the support center feedback and help provided. Support staff is often able to accommodate features needed.

Cons: When certain features were not obtainable, such as notifying employees of an approved time off request. Certain features for the tracking of salaried employees' hours

Recommendations to other buyers: Prioritize your system requirements. It's unlikely that a program will have all features. Weigh the pros and cons.

Great documentation and support, excellent UI and payroll export.

Pros: The documentation for TimeIPS is extremely good. They have help (that can be hidden after you learn the system) right on each page explaining what it is doing and giving helpful hints. The online documentation is also very robust. With previous experience with a timekeeping system and the documentation provided, I have rarely needed help with the implementation setup. Their support has been excellent. They have solved any issues we have had and even rolled out a bug fix well in time for our go-live date. The user interface and the options it gives are excellent. It is obvious they have put time and effort into making the web interface easy to use. The help on each page is great (as is the fact that it can be hidden). The top bar can be hidden when viewing reports, giving more screen real estate. There is an option for just about any list of data, reports, or configuration to export to a csv file for easy charting and data manipulation. I also like that they have an onsite option. I am not yet convinced the cloud is the way to go. They have a nice little locked down Linux box that you simply plug in similar to a network appliance; just configure the network and away you go! The time clocks they use are not flashy or pretty, but they work better than the flashy ones we have. We have had little issue with dirty, greasy shop floor hands/fingers. And they have a replaceable keypad, so after the guys punch (literally) the keys for a few years, we can swap it with another $10 USB keypad. But one of the best and most surprising features is the extremely powerful payroll export engine. They have options for delimited, fixed width, justification, optional data, and even expressions so you can do data manipulation on the fly as you create the payroll export. It is a very powerful tool. I was fully expecting to have to do after-the-export data manipulation to the expected output, but TimeIPS was able to fully support our needs out-of-the-box! I would be amiss not to mention the cost. The price, at least for the basic modules, was the lowest of the products we decided to compare. You are allotted a certain amount of hours for implementation (that I have not needed to use) and you get support for a year. You can purchase a support agreement each year, if desired, and that is reasonably priced. Overall, this product represents great value.

Cons: One drawback is the department transfer feature is rather weak. I find this odd, as that seems like a pretty generic requirement. They did implement a bug fix on it, but overall, I think this could be improved. The only other minor problem is that "time snaps," as they call them, are not configurable per shift or schedule, but only by payroll group. Those terms may not make sense unless you are familiar with the product, but it is just an odd way of setting a group time adjustment. Licensing module mix up! We are using a pretty basic version of the software. It's pretty much strictly timekeeping. There are many additional modules you can purchase if you need more. This seems like it could be one drawback if you have diverse and complicated needs. For instance, you need additional licenses/module for employees to clock in from a web browser. That one especially seemed a bit too much!

Recommendations to other buyers: Always go through the demonstrations and play with the demo server if they have one. Hands-on use is a great way to get a feel for the usability of the product and to see some specific features in action. Frankly, most HR/Timekeeping software can do the basic tasks pretty well. They try to differentiate through the advanced features, such as performance review management, job tracking, and applicant tracking. If you need those features, spend your time reviewing those areas as most software can handle the basic tasks.

Easy to use system, user-friendly, lots of features

Pros: I like the message system that allows me to have a message appear to all my employees when they clock in. It is difficult to communicate to all employees because we don't have an intra email system, so this helps get the word spread around.

Cons: I do not like that we have to pay for extra service hours and we can't call in whenever we want without worrying about being on the clock for it or service problems.

Recommendations to other buyers: See if it works for your business. This is a really cheap platform that has been comparable to the time software of other more expensive companies
