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

Harvest

We have a client > Project > task style system at work where contacts are based on hours spent by a cross-functional team. Harvest is able to organize our hours by client, project, task, user, etc. This way, we can pull reports on time spent by function, by project, etc -- which is extremely helpful to measure over/under burn against our contracts.We also use Harvest as part of our expense tracking, and similar to the time tracking, it's sleek and easy to use. Even the less-tech-savvy people in our office have easily mastered Harvest.

Pros

  • Employees enjoy the 24/7 access to their timecards, pay stub, annual statements, and accruals.
  • Managers now have up to date information to review attendance as often as they like.
  • Payroll has been able to eliminate many manual internal processes as a result.
  • Time off reports are easily accessible.
  • Manual calculations are eliminated thus ensuring a more accurate payroll for hours worked, overtime, and benefit usage.

  • Easy to use -- simple user interface which leaves little room for error.
  • It's got a personality -- for example, at the beginning of a day, before you log any time, there is a different quote each day that relates to time.
  • It's extremely flexible -- everything within the tasks can be altered and manager so that it's personalized to fit your client/project needs.

Cons

  • Reporting always seems to be difficult and not as user friendly as it should be. We have had to compensate for such by providing more mgt support ourselves or create the reports ourselves.
  • There have been some internal procedures that ADP has not been able to accomodate causing us to still have some manual procedures.
  • Lack of support and communication during the implementation stage and did not meet the expectations of what our sales person promised.
  • ADP ACA product was very manual and support for it were not knowledgeable as would be expected.
  • Time off feature should provide alerts or not allow time off to go into the negatives. This is not an exception.

  • I would like to see better integration between quickbooks and harvest. I have to create a harvest invoice and then copy to quickbooks but when that is finally paid, none of that info transfers to harvest so I have a ton of "unpaid" invoices in harvest.
  • It would nice if my team could request to be part of a project. There are many times I have a team member jump on a project but then they enter their time in the wrong place because they didn't have access to the project. If they could click a button to request access and I get an email that I can approve them with, it would help things a ton.

Usability

ADP ezLaborManager7.0
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.

Online Training

ADP ezLaborManager8.0
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.

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.

Basecamp, we used to have Basecamp. But Harvest+Asana made our decision making easier. We tried with Wrike but the user interface is not aseasy as is looks. Harvest has our problems resolved by now with simple steps that make this tool work for us. Other tools that could help to make this one better could be something with resources allocation.

Return on Investment

  • Overtime has been reduced as we now have the ability to review it without a time crunch following receipt of paper timecards.
  • Payroll is more accurate as all the calculations are made within the system leaving less room for human error or abuse by the employee.
  • Staff have more access to technology with use of lap tops and feel more comfortable with some of the self service features available.
  • Communication of employee information has improved with use of the home page portal.

  • Easier to keep track of fee/free work so better understanding of efficiency
  • It does take time/commitment to fill in though, so only useful if done regularly.
