Decent Workforce Management Software

2019-02-25

Pros

I like the variety of time management software we get to choose from as their client.

Cons

When having trouble logging in hours for a employee, the customer service two days to get resolved, in which all that needed to be done was add the employee to the database.

NOVATime is a robust Time & Attendance system offering plenty of customization and reporting options

2018-04-10

Unique customization and customer support.

Pros

NOVATime offers many customizable tools and features to cater to your company's timekeeping needs.

Cons

Unfortunately, there is no test environment in NOVATime, therefore you are always working with live data which is less than desirable when making mass changes or introducing new features.

HRIS Manager

2017-02-17

We do not have the system calculate accruals, however, we import them from our payroll system and do use them to keep employees from going over their earned time off.

Pros

Easy to import our accruals from our hr system; many reports and ability to schedule them to various users is a wonderful feature.

Cons

Because the system does so much; it can appear complicated to set up. We are too small of a company to have Novatime themselves provide support, but our vendor (who we go through for support) is wonderful and quick to get back to us.

This is a good system and when we bought it - reasonably priced. As I said we host in-house and I think they are getting away from that. This meets all of our needs and we are slowly using more of the features.

Great Customer Support

2016-10-18

Anytime I need help just call the support line and majority of the time my issue is resolved on the first call.

Pros

Ability to run customized reports and the timely support provided.

Cons

Different URLs needed for the admin, for supervisor and employee. Would be nicer if all logged in to same URL and then just configured different access rights

Time Clock Software that Conforms to YOUR Business

2019-08-29

I am able to view employee punches and information in real time, rather than having to pull the time into the software manually.

Pros

I love the way you can configure reports to suit your needs.

Cons

It is not as data-entry friendly as I would like.

It works relatively well for the cost.

2018-07-12

I'd much rather have just one system that is able to accommodate time card punches, HRIS and payroll.

Pros

Tech support has always been very helpful, easy to work with and quick to respond.

Cons

So since there's no link, I have to enter all employee information into the payroll system, then into Novatime.

( company, 501-1000 employees)

We use NovaTime for all timesheets for exempt & nonexempt employees.

2018-05-04

Pros

I like that it is on the cloud so we can get information from our employees and for our own timecards easily and efficiently to the appropriate people.

Cons

Lack of flexibility in terms of different type of employee types (we run a gym where many different employees may have multiple job codes) makes it somewhat difficult to manage.

Recommending NovaTime

2017-11-07

NovaTime just upgraded the look of their system and made it even more visually appealing and easy to use with a nice dashboard. Love it!

Pros

We love that the software is simple and straightforward. Our employees and managers both find it easy to us with little to no learning curve.

Cons

There maybe were 1 or 2 features we would have liked to be different, but they could not accommodate at this time. However, they are always taking customer feedback and upgrade accordingly.

Good Time Entry Tool

2020-04-03

Pros

As a manager, I approve my team's weekly timesheets through the system and it is a quick process. The time can also be edited during approval, which can be convenient when someone submits a mistake that needs to be corrected.

Cons

If an employee makes a mistake they are unable to edit their timesheet after it is submitted for approval.

Software is very user friendly and had no trouble getting things accomplished

2018-07-24

The ability to see when employees are clocked in and what time they clocked in.

Pros

User interface is well placed making ease of use very efficient.

Cons

Changing times can be a hassle until you learn the correct procedure. It had a little lag that i had to learn to deal with as well

Timesheet management software

2020-08-06

I have been a user of Novatime for less than 6 months. I track my leave accrual and hours.

Pros

This software allows for real time views of requests and balances of accrued time.

Cons

As a user, the dashboard/home appears pretty busy, and it may take some time to arrange in a way that best suits your individual needs.

Novatime makes tracking hours and associates a piece of cake.

2018-03-22

Pros

The reports in Novatime are wonderful!

Cons

There is a lot to learn with Novatime. Not everyone can pick it up quickly, and it takes quite a bit of training in order to be utilized fully.

Clocking in and out with ease!

2019-09-20

I've been using Novatime for the past 4 to 5 months now. It's loads pretty fast, however, after they added a few more tabs to it recently, it has slowed down a bit.

Pros

It's really efficient to clock in through Novatime through someone else's computer by typing in our Employee ID and Password instead of waiting for our systems to load up.

Cons

This is where WorkDay is much better and easier to understand.

Functional, but Could be Improved

2019-04-25

I dislike changing pages after entering time without saving and my requests that I entered being erased.

Pros

I like that it tracks my use of time so I know what type of time I have available and how much sick, personal or comp time I have left.

Cons

I dislike that when you’re entering time off requests if you switch pages and forget to save what you entered it disappears and you have to start all over.

not the most intuitive time tracking system

2019-04-05

Pros

In brief, it does the job of tracking your hours but I think there are more intuitive time tracking systems.

Cons

When we first started using the system we ran into several bugs when logging our time and it took our controller some time to have them all fixed.
