looking for timeclock software that works with handpunch machine

We currently have a handpunch time clock at our office (the kind where the machine scans your hand and that's how you clock in/out. The software that came with it is limited and really old and we're looking to switch to better software, preferably something with a web interface and/or hosted so both managers and employees can look up the info they need from a browser. But man...there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of good, consolidated info out there and very little pricing info. We're looking for some advice/help on how to select the software.

At minimum we're looking for software that'll capture all the in/out data for each employee and summarize it so we can send it to ADP. Ideally, it'll also do things like email alerts (e.g. for missed punches, late punches, etc), a central in/out board for our managers to look at, and possibly a way to help employees do self service (look up their hours worked, maybe even look up benefits like how many vacation hours they've accrued).
So far, it seems like these are the best choices of software that may work with our hand punch machine and that have some sort of web interface option with some/all of the options we're looking for.
Kronos Workforce Central
Ultimate Software Ultipro
Paypro Timeforce II
TimeTrex (limited to timeclock & payroll. no benefits)
Does anyone out there have experience with this sort of thing? Should we just bite the bullet and spend time calling on each of the above to schedule demos, etc.? Any advice, specific or general? Things to look out for?
Oh, and we have about 80 employees.
