Pros

Reporting is extremely easy to use and read with the back end having the ability to push workflows and emails to outstanding items. PeopleStreme are extremely responsive to our queries and issues.
There is greater clarity for all about their futures and were their development is headed.
Our experience has been great, training was excellent and we love the application suite.

Pros

Customer service is great. They seem to care about their clients and will bend over backwards to help.
It has been great for tracking overtime hours and vacation time for our company. The best part was the customer service- we had a dedicated rep who would always answer my questions immediately.
What I love about BizRun is the ease of use, great support when I need it. The continued growth of the product is exciting as well.

Cons

The product is expensive for the lack of functionality and the presentation of the modules.
With all the new functionality being released it is hard to keep up.
Nothing, other than we wish they had more US based support. Initially we thought we had a lot of bugs, but as it turned out it was more just administrative user error.

Cons

Right now there is no permission level for this; only the administrator has access to pull the reports for all employees.
Employees are not able to enter their own time if they forget to clock in or out.
I don't like that the information we use and change most is something only the bizrun employees can change. As well as the fact that the time off accrual is hard to understand.
