[ADP is well suited for] Smaller agencies with a regular payroll and not a complex payroll. Users must be familiar with databases, reporting, etc. as system is not as user friendly as we would like. The cost is also a factor especially as the basic system does not include other features such as performance management, dashboards, etc. I was hoping to have access to the dashboards. Reporting should also provide more sample reports

ADP Workforce Now

For a small employer, with very little turnover and few benefit options, ADP may be too costly for the benefit. There are many affordable payroll providers available for small organizations.For large employers with many benefits options, employees in multiple locations, multiple tax jurisdictions and varied pay types (salary, hourly, commission, etc), ADP is ideal. The extended customer service hours, extensive resources for international pay, and capability for multi state taxation is crucial for an international employer.

Pros

  • The interface of ADP ezLaborManager is simple to use, training only takes a couple of minutes for employees and a couple more for managers.
  • Time off requests are simple to add to the system, review, and approve or deny. There is a space for comments so that managers and employees can communicate directly on the time off request.
  • The employee and supervisor approval process confirms that the employees and managers agree on hours work to satisfy in errors in time before processing payroll.
  • Importing ADP ezLaborManager to RUN Powered by ADP only takes a couple minutes allowing you to get started on processing your payroll in a fraction of the time compared to manual time cards.

  • Tax and governmental reporting. For a small business these reports are cumbersome, and time consuming
  • Direct deposit - no more printing out checks and distributing to all employees.

Cons

  • Some improvements to interface could be done to make it easier to use
  • Better documentation showing what it can do
Ryan Husbands, MBA, CPA profile photo
  • The time and attendance portion could be more robust. If you have employees with multiple pay rates, pay types, and pay additions this may be a task to setup. My current company is driven by cost numbers and I we had to partner with another company that is another part of ADP called IDI in order to make things work.
  • Sometimes when working with records it is difficult to manipulate historical data. I guess maybe this is a good and bad thing because you don't want it to be easy for people to manipulate data, but if terminating an employee was a mistake I would like to easily be able to delete that record instead of rehiring.
  • The accrual setup is one of the biggest issues I have had with ADP. From the setup to execution this is a project that requires constant review even after the process has been completed.

Usability

ADP is a good system to track information but, what it lacks is just some detail that provides time savings. Some instances they have made "updates" that tend to have been better previous to those "updates." One example is for staff to see how they have used their time off in the past. There should be an easy way to report and review such other than looking at pay periods. Pay statement and review and totals can also improve.

The screens are very easy to understand and employees can easily navigate the system which makes it easier on me since I am not always having to answer questions.

The payroll support is excellent, but the support on the technical side is lacking. The support for the portal is especially lacking. I think they need more training to be able to serve the customer more efficiently. I have had issues with employees not being able to log in even after resetting the password, and have had to call back a couple of different times to get results. Luckily I don't have issues that I need to call them about very often.

Online Training

Based on 1 answer
The training provided was based on a generic database and reporting which made it difficult to compare when you had your own database to work at. It also didn't provide good written materials that would be useful after the training session. It was more geared towards the practice tests or applications within the training.

The instructions from the recruiting agency on how to use the system was pretty straightforward. It provided step-by-step procedures on where you would need to log in your hours as well as what you would need to highlight (i.e. regular, overtime, etc.) detailing the type of hours that were worked overall. The handout also provided some pictures of the application

Implementation

Should have had a project manager from ADP to assist.

Either assign more than one specialist to the implementation process, or assign less clients to the implementation specialist. The process requires attention to detail and the ability to test and re-test as well as verify the information. It also requires a lot of back and forth between the client ant the implementation specialist, so they need to be readily available during the whole implementation process.

Alternatives Considered

Cost and time spent on implementation were factors. ADP is reputable as well. Concerns were costs are high and extra modules that should be part of the standard are high.

Our company used ADP prior to Workforce Now. We tried PayChex for one year 11 years ago, however did not like the functionality and time required to process a payroll. We returned to ADP, then tried Paylocity...that lasted one small payroll, as our payroll clerk was extremely dissatisfied with the product. I was on the telephone with our ADP representative asking what ADP could do to help us remedy our error in moving to paylocity. ADP was great, they explained the ADP Workforce Now product. Helped us return to ADP in time to do a full payroll the following week, and helped to collect the information from Paylocity in time to do the first quarter report in a timely manner. This was a difficult task as Paylocity was less than forthcoming with the reports we needed to provide. The Paylocity support team finally admitted they could not do the what they claimed in the demo. Waste of time and a lot of money. ADP Workforce Now has proven to us they will be there when we need them.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: allows us to use one system of recording time card information versus manually submitting time card information. This helps captures turn labor cost while the manual way had too many room for errors.
  • Negative: if you forget to archive a termed employee, you will still be charged a fee.
  • Negative: when you terminate an employee, it does not automatically cancel out the recurring schedule, so you have to manually update this yourself. Soft cost that could be avoided.

  • ADP Workforce Now is a working partner. Utilizing the product has saved time and money for our accounting department.
  • The timekeeping program allows us to utilize department and job tracking.
  • The custom reporting options and having all of the employee related functions in one program, helps to generate information and reports that used to take hours to pull together.
