ADP Health Compliance

For my particular use I would say the analyzing of data and identifying issues with employee data is very robust. The ability to identify and point out segments of data that may be incorrect is great. We use ADP to ensure that the data being listed on our 1095 is accurate. We also use them to ensure we are in compliance with our Safe Harbor testing and requirements

It's well suited for employees that just punch in/out regularly and do not have the responsibility for reviewing their own time or the desire to look into their accrual details. The basic punching and ability to create multiple layers of department structure is great.

Pros

  • The ability to breakdown the data into segments allows us to zero in on errors or problems that we can focus on in order to correct those issues.
  • The information is presented in an easy to understand interface which is very user-friendly and very intuitive. I have used the interface in the past to change data or approvals of forms. It was something I could figure out on my own due to it being so easy to navigate.
  • ADP Compliance is very good at pulling in the data and identifying issues and presenting it in method that is easy to work off of. We have many employees and the files we sent over were uploaded and processed. The errors were quickly identified so we could focus on correcting the problem employees.

  • The onboarding process is excellent. It helps us reduce paper.
  • The recruitment management capabilities are excellent. It helps is manage candidates.
  • The payroll processing is easy to use. It has a very logical process to follow to process payroll.

Cons

  • I would love to see a more robust testing environment after the data has been uploaded. For example, different life events to ensure they are appearing on the 1095's as they should. If the data is going across correctly that seems to be the end point of testing. I identified a few concerns and had them corrected but I wish they had done some more checks after the data had come over in reference to changes.

  • Reporting - Kronos has an excellent reporting system but it has way too many arbitrary walls. You have to be in the right section to access information which prevents simple reports.
  • Documentation - while the website is intuitive for the basics, pick time, payroll, etc., it is almost impossible to find good documents outside of that (customizing reports, figuring out where a field is, their web services). All lack documents to guide you.
  • Overly busy UI - Kronos Workforce Ready provides lots of ways to do things which is good except each spot does things just a little different. This often leads to confusion for our managers and makes supporting more complex. A simpler UI that always gives the one screen and let us build the extra screens using their reporting system would be better.
  • Report filters seem overly restrictive you can't filter on dynamic data or use one column to filter another.

We have begun looking for other vendors to supply this products need as Kronos WFR cannot deliver the suite of applications which it should with this product.*6/5/17 Edit - We started the new year with a new application. WFR proved to be unable to correct the errors within the application. We are much happier with the new application as we can use it effectively.

While some tasks such as updating an employee's basic info, password, and approver preferences are very easy to do and straightforward (all combined on a single employee maintenance page and updateable through a single 'save'), other items prove to be more cumbersome such as navigating through multiple layers of employees when you are up higher in management with more system rights

I believe there is too much downtime. Single sign-on has been down 2 times in last 5 days. This downtime has occurred many times in the past 6 months. Many topics mentioned in the user guides have not enough information to use the functionality.

Support is very organized, and usually very timely. But as I've mentioned, there were some kinks in getting the right information at the right time. I think things have improved on that front, but there are still key functionalities that should be available that have to be requested for enhancement

Alternatives Considered

Both companies offer the software necessary and the systems for reporting. I do prefer ADP's interface as they have done a good job in making it easy to understand the data. ADP was already in place when I arrived but have been very pleased. The biggest differentiation for me is also customer service. The team I use with ADP is wonderful with a lot of knowledge and experience in the space. They help ensure we meet all requirements and are always willing to assist us when needed

All I can say about Kronos is they know timekeeping. I have used both Workforce Ready and Workforce Central for timekeeping, projects/tasks, accruals, and attendance. Kronos does a great job. I can not speak to the HR and Payroll modules of these systems as I have never used them but for timekeeping, Kronos rocks!!!

Return on Investment

  • Time is something that we just don't have at my business. We rely on ADP Compliance to ensure we are meeting the ACA requirements -freeing up our team to focus on other items. As we have updated and tweaked wrong information throughout the year it will make end of year reporting much easier and faster allowing us to focus on items which we want to focus on.

  • I know that at this time we are not using Kronos to its full potential so that question is hard to answer. We are using it exactly like we were using the previous payroll software and in that sense it is working great. We have only been with Kronos since June, so eventually we will start adding in additional modules and functionality.
  • Like I have said before, it is hard to get some things resolved as no one wants to take the credit or blame when you have KPS (APS or Kronos).
