Great System

Successful Implementation and conversion process

2016-08-31

Pros

Synerion created import/export features to move data back and forth between the time and attendance software and our payroll software.

It is easy to extract employee profile data and create an excel file, but other fields are not as user-friendly.

Great product

2020-04-29

Can look at the whole team or an individual employee. We can adjust any of the areas that will benefit us when discussed with a Synerion team member.

Pros

Easily used on a daily basis, customer service on questions is a one on one meeting with an expert on their product, always looking to improve their product, and webinars often to cover any changes they make in their product.

Cons

I did not have any least liked concerns about the product because it was implemented easily and fixed a big opportunity in our hourly payroll punching and reporting.

From a Supervisor's point of View

2021-03-22

Employees have more control over their own time and records.

Pros

My staff can see at a glance how much time they have available to them at any given moment.

Cons

The schedule calendar is challenging to use. Especially when inputting an employee's schedule. When using the "Copy Calendar" function, it does not know to skip a stat holiday, rather it includes that day in the schedule, which then messes up each week thereafter.

Excellent Product

2018-09-12

Pros

The implementation process is fairly quick and went extremely smooth for us. The employee self service request for vacation/time off has significantly reduced the amount of paperwork and is a feature I would recommend for any company looking to reduce paperwork.

Cons

There is nothing negative I can write about Synerion. It is a very user friendly program that even the not so tech savvy individual could use.
