ADP ezLaborManager

[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

Ceridian Dayforce HCM

Dayforce appears to be a product that was designed for retail, however, we have made it work for our environment in a law firm setting. It works well for time management to my knowledge, but our recruiting, performance management, and billing through accounting is still outside of Dayforce in other systems.

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.

  • It offers a lot of solutions "out of the box". If your company has no specialized/customized needs this would be excellent.
  • For the most part, customer service is responsive, aside from the busiest times of the year.
  • Documentation is extensive on all parts of the system. The DIG (Dayforce Implementation Guide) in particular, is very helpful.

Cons

  • Some improvements to interface could be done to make it easier to use
  • Better documentation showing what it can do

  • The new 'Timecards' needs improvement. It is difficult to access the timecard totals (previously 'View Pay' in My Timecards) without having to drag the side bar down. It is not efficient.

It's a great system and I do not see us changing anytime soon. It's so customizable that there is no need to look for another product.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
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.

Support has greatly improved over the last 3 years. The support team is much more knowledgeable about the Dayforce system than they were 3 years ago. Unfortunately tickets do get stuck in a black hole and it is never possible to pick up the phone to ask a question

Because the training we reviewed at Insights has changed how we use the system everyday. This is a key factor in our training.

Online Training

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 online training is very good, there is a wide variety of topics offered and several dates and times. The instructors are very knowledgeable about the subjects they are teaching. There are so many ways to program Dayforce that just the basics seem to be covered in the class.

Allow yourself a sufficient period, and if you hit snags TALK with your implementation team. Do not try and figure it out on your own. The team is great to help you out and keep you from getting too frustrated with the process. We gave ourselves a short window to work in and it challenged us very, very much

Alternatives Considered

ADP exLaborManager - I prefer ADP over the Paycor and Aon Hewitt timecard applications. This software was more user friendly, had easier access, reporting, and tracking hours than the others I have used. I am not saying the others are horrible, just that ADP was more simplistic to use and administer than the others.

Return on Investment

  • The time savings from having to calculate the vacation, sick, bereavement was well worth the cost of this software.
  • We were able to login once to ADP to then use ezLaborManager which helped save time from having to login multiple times and having to use different shortcuts to access the websites/modular.
Adam Kasten, PHR profile photo
  • Increased productivity through more robust employee and manager self-service.
  • Introduction of mobile technology for HR and Payroll data.
  • Elimination of multiple interfaces in place for older systems.
