Pros

My overall experience has been wonderful. Knowing that all of the employee taxes and W-2s are taken care of and are being done on time is the best feeling and it's all worth every penny.
Additionally, the employees of APS are fantastic to work with. The people of the company are the real gem that sets APS apart from the others.
I liked that I had Payroll, benefits, reviews etc. all in one place and accessible to multiple people for ease of completion and reduced time and paperwork.

Pros

My experience overall Ease has been fantastic. I have been using it for many years and each year they upgrade it to make it even better.
I love the User experience of the software compared to other competitors in the marketplace. The overall system is wonderful, works like a charm, super easy to administer benefits.
I can see my time cards real easy and you see other things like benefits and other things like document that you are current with and what needs to be renewed.

Cons

Unfortunately, in my field, the hand scanning sensor gets dirty and isn't able to be cleaned easily. Also, we have wi-fi issues so the computers/tablets can be a struggle.
Record keeping within this module can be difficult to track, specifically when changes to employee wage, details, etc. are made. Other than that, I have found very few flaws to exist in this program.
This software really has no negative complains from me.

Cons

ACA reporting - this can be challenging and sometimes they are not able to fix mistakes that occur (such as newborn dependents don't show up until the month after their birth).
You have to back out then go back in. It has no way to clock out when your not going to lunch.
Not all forms populate correctly (although I understand this is difficult to remedy). The build-out of the portal can be tricky.
