ADP ezLaborManager

ADP ezLaborManager works well when you have several computers for your employees to access. If you don't, the delay for everyone to clock in/out can get very frustrating. Making sure to have the other suites with ADP also is recommended. The system didn't seem to be down often but was fairly quick to login and navigate.

Unanet

As I said, Unanet is great for timekeeping and expense reporting. It's very easy to navigate and intuitive for my staff to use. On the other hand, reports are a challenge. The ones that are "canned" only come out as PDFs so I find I waste a lot of paper each month. Customized reports are better and come in Excel, but setting them up is not that easy. We've been working with Unanet just over a year. We went "live" effective 1/1/2017 and we're still avoiding the reporting functions even though that was one of the main reasons we purchased Unanet in the first place

Pros

  • Ease of use: This system was particularly easy to use for employees, managers, and administrators. The user-friendly interface and straightforward design helped make accessing and using it that much easier.
  • Viewing: For employees clocking in the system it was easy to clock in/out and also see totals of each week worked along with totals in month/year and vacation accruals.
  • Reporting: This option for administrators was very beneficial and fairly simple to run for novice users.
  • Administrator: The ability to view all partners, edit any employee as needed and ease of making changes in a short period of time.

  • Unanet integrates with our current ARP system which allow the changes made in Dynamics to flow over to Unanet which ensures accuracy between systems.
  • The ability to export and import templates is a very strong feature of Unanet as well. We deal with many changes in assignments, additions of projects, importing of time from legacy systems, and countless other bulk data uploads which are handled extremely well by the import and export features. This is one of the more important strengths in the Unanet system in my view.
  • Reporting is also a very strong feature in Unanet. Besides the volume of project, accounting, and user reports, the ability to save individual reports with such detailed criteria is a great benefit. Most if not all of our project managers have their own personalized reports which allow them to drill down and view data their on their preferred level.

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.

  • No support for MRP for production, bill of materials, inventory, etc. While service oriented companies don't need this, this would be helpful for companies that also have product lines.
  • Limited reporting support for vendors and customers although some of this is expected in the next release.
  • Current lack of interactive reports to support drill down to get additional detail about certain records or transactions. This is planned for the next release so we'll see how well this is supported.
  • No support for adding supporting documents/attachments to previously posted entries without voiding them and reentering them. We sometimes get receipts and even invoices a few days after the entry is made and posted.
  • No real support for capitalized assets for depreciation calculations. We currently do this outside of Unanet, but it would be nice if it was integrated.

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.

We were used to Deltek's Costpoint from the prior company and Unanet is far easier to use for users, accounting personnel, project managers, and corporate managers. Continuous enhancements lead us to believe that Unanet will be even better in meeting our needs.

Return on Investment

  • Assisted in the control of cost in association to our outside staffing.
  • The system could better considering the cost.
Imelda Bedolla profile photo
  • While we acquired professional services initially to integrate with Quickbooks and then to switch to Financials, the costs were reasonable and the consultants were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We were able to maintain DCAA compliance under both configuations.
  • Timely project financials make it easy to manage potential cost overruns.
  • We are still hoping to be able to support production jobs and are looking forward to the next Champions Conference to see what others have done to address that market as well as what potential future enhancements with Unanet will allow us to address this market.
