ADP Resource

ADP is best if you have a really knowledgeable client rep that has been your contact for multiple sessions. Otherwise, you are forced to reiterate the problems to multiple parties. If you have a dedicated staff member who is knowledgeable of your processes, then ADP is a good resource for payroll needs.

Namely

Namely is an affordable HRIS and payroll system (we use both). The integrations may be lacking, but to have two different brands for these products would add only more difficulties into the mix. Folks can clearly see their paystub links on the main page, which then takes them to a different screen for paystub and W-2 viewing. The 1095 and 1094 programs are very helpful to use (not cheap, though), and the support team guides you through them at all hours of the day or night to make sure they are timely. I really appreciate that. The onboarding feature is our favorite right now, as it eliminates 30-40 pages of paper for each person we bring on board meltmedia.

Pros

  • It is very simple to process payroll, even from home if needed. I once processed the payroll from Japan.
  • I love that I can balance the payroll and send it knowing it is 100% correct.
  • I can process payroll as late as 6pm and have it back the next day.
  • I really like my ADP representative. I have had 2 and they are very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with.
  • Speaking of the ADP representative.......No matter who answers the phone, if my rep is not available, they are all knowledgeable and even through they are not my assigned rep, they are all pleasant to work with.

Cons

  • My biggest peeve is....and they are aware of this - a new state is sometimes very difficult to set up. With all the different classifications in states back east, it can take days to get it set up correctly.

  • Regarding their Time Off functionality, we would like to keep/see time requested from the previous year while still tracking current year. Totally minor and really doesn't affect anything; just a nice-to-have. Really, we have no complaints about Namely.
  • Another nice-to-have is a printable function for org charts for the whole organization and by each department.

I have a lot of experience and trust in this software package - actually any software package from ADP. The training that I have gotten over the years has always been complete and the representatives that I have had over the years are all EXCEPTIONAL! Looking back in the 20 plus years of experience, I can say truthfully there are only 1-3 persons who I would rather not have worked with at ADP. I find their customer service, and phone reps do their best to get the job done. This makes my job easier in the process.

Overall, Namely is a very user friendly platform, most of the functionality can be learned with out much training or guidance. They have designed it to be modeled similar to other social media sites interface which makes it clean in design and easy to navigate. If you do have someone at your organization that is less tech savvy, one of the most impressive parts of Namely continues to be their client support. They will support you and give guidance in every aspect if its training or just pointing out a feature and how it works

Alternatives Considered

Before my time, Uyemura was using ADP Paynet Plus and switched to another software, who shall go unnamed, but it was a complete bust. The taxes were calculated incorrectly on employees who have a car allowance and of course this a very big area for mistakes. We quickly switched back to ADP Paynet plus.

Namely may not have all the features you may get with another platform but, if it's needed, Namely is already working on getting it. They care a lot about their customers and want to do right. They will go above and beyond for you. The system is very nice to use and super user friendly.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - ADP has simplified our payroll batches as the payroll side is quite intuitive.
  • Negatives - Because of a lack of internal coordination, we've often had to have multiple phone calls to resolve issues.
  • Positive - The reporting within the tool has allowed us to be more efficient during our financial audits.

  • We've been able to save on our benefits renewal costs by going with their brokerage services as well as getting a reduction in service fees.
  • The best part is how much more value they've added to our overall function beyond just the expense of an HRIS/Payroll system.
