[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

This is very well suited where there is a rotating support structure with larger teams involved. Our department as a whole has 16 full-time team members, with 4 people per team. The management of absences such as annual leave, alongside busy schedules or even seasonal downtime, is a breeze with Planday.

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.

  • Provides an overview of staffing levels for each team, and the department as a whole.
  • The UI makes it very easy to get a snapshot view of the staffing levels for set time period.
  • Managing absences and arranging for shift swaps are also efficiently handled using Planday.

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.

  • Has a rigid structure, so there is only one way to do any particular task.

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.

Other than an Excel spreadsheet and countless templates, we haven't really used anything else.

Return on Investment

  • The amount of time it takes to process payroll from manual time cards to ADP ezLaborManager has gone from multiple days trying to chase employees for missing time and clarification to hours with ezLaborManager. Managers can now monitor missing time daily alleviating the end of payroll crunch. This has saved hours for Human Resources that are better utilized elsewhere.
