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

WorkflowMax

WorkflowMax is very well suited for a business that wants to track time billed by project, to have an easy way to generate invoices for those projects, and to keep track of overall productivity and invoice status. I imagine it can also be adapted to different types of businesses that deal in goods rather than services and time. I am not sure for which scenarios or businesses the program is not appropriate.

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.

  • Great for managing teams which are not in one spot. Awesome for small or growing businesses with employees who might work from home.
  • Really good for teams to keep up with where a project is at against the time left to achieve the goal
  • Great for keeping all the information for each project in one spot.

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.

  • When looking at the job distribution it isn't to scale and it isn't printable.
  • Sometimes it is confusing as to where you might find something until you realise there are multiple points of access.
  • When a job is assigned the whole task is assigned and if you work on it before the task is allocated to you, it isn't possible to enter those hours. It would be better if the employee could choose the task they did and enter the hours and then it sent back to an approver to have it added.

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.

The support team are excellent. The only downside is that you can't phone them!

Online Training

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.

Implementation

Decide how to breakdown your ongoing jobs - are they monthly recurring or annual broken into chunks?What are you going to give clients i.e. how will your proposals and invoices look?

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 tried a couple of solutions before settling on WorkflowMax, we chose WorkflowMax for as it did what we needed without being over complicated.

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.
