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

Traffic is suitable for most agencies, regardless of size. You don't need to use all of the features in order to get good results. And it can be linked to Maconomy which is useful for larger agencies. We have around 80 employees and it works great.

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.

  • Quote and job templates are incredibly valuable. Not only do these save time, but the team are less likely to miss crucial work packets from their estimates.
  • Dashboards provide a clear picture of finances on every quote or job, with the added ability to drill down to the detail.
  • Being able to go back to any job and analyse time and resource usage is priceless. You might see where you have overrun, or maybe missed something in your original estimate. This will help you to continually improve the accuracy of your estimates.
  • By nature, having everything in one system (quotes, expenses, purchases, jobs, time, resource, invoices) makes it far easier to get the true picture of what's going on in your business.

Cons

  • Trying to research previous time cards past a month are hard to achieve. There is a custom date range option but it rarely works, the program just sits there and doesn't pull up the custom range.
  • Pulling reports for various needs is also more difficult then it needs to be. Instead of pulling a quick report with the dates and parameters you need you have to go in and edit the report and then go back in and edit it again to return it to default settings.
  • You also have to watch your invoices and make sure you are receiving your discounts otherwise this software can be quite costly.
  • Make sure your employees bookmark the ADP ezLaborManager website, otherwise it gets difficult to find through an internet search.

  • One of the main features I would like to see added is another permissions option that allows Studio/Traffic Managers to the see the 'blue' time added that currently only the user can see when they have added their actual hourly time. This would give the option to view quickly the progress of a job, and to see if its still live or completed. There is the option to look at the 'weekly timesheet' but this in my opinion is not nearly as user friendly as being able to look at a glance each calendar.
  • It would be hugely beneficial if along the grey bar on the bottom of the homepage another notification is added that a job had been added to Deltek TrafficLIVE. A simple number would alert you that a new job has been added and needs your immediate attention.
  • The job search has been conveyed to me by a number of users as not working efficiently enough. If you have the job number then it works perfectly but if you try to locate a job by the account managers name or project name it will not reliably respond in your search.

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

Again, since we have not used anything in the past, I can not compare one product to the other.

We chose Deltek TrafficLIVE after several presentations as to the benefits of its work flow system, and having explained in detail as to what we had to achieve to make our studio much more productive plus being able to monitor the daily pinch points. The overall design, navigation and usability compared to other more complicated products that we had considered was ultimately the decision maker for us.

Return on Investment

  • It's saved us the cost of hiring & training a dedicated HR manager as ADP does so much of this for us.
  • ADP saved us a lot of headaches in regards to keeping track of payroll filings.

  • Visibility of staff utilisation.
  • Faster invoicing for account managers and invoicing to clients.
  • Improved collaboration across departments and teams with little effect on the people who need to be creative.
  • Having the ability to run any kind of operational report - ultimately it's the estimated versus actuals which is what the finance guys love.
