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.

If all you need is a payroll company to run your checks, this is for you. DON'T plan on using them for anything else

Pros

  • ADP has an easy to read portal that is easy to navigate. The UI is fairly intuitive and as a user I can find the right information quickly.
  • The ADP portal is flexible in the sense that we can change payroll amounts for special circumstances such as a special bonus or special payout. This allows our payroll team to make the necessary changes right away.
  • The reporting capabilities are quite robust and there are many ways to customize reports that we use for finance, payroll, HR, etc.

  • I think it is great that Paylocity offers all types of training for their clients needs all at zero additional costs.
  • I think that Paylocity has the functionality to handle Payroll in a respectable manner.
  • I do like the layout of the Employee Self Service Module.

Cons

  • ADP organization has too many layers and you often have to speak to multiple people to find the right solution.
  • There doesn't appear to be efficient communication between the internal teams at ADP - the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Thus, you often have to re-explain your issues.
  • During the implementation of the software, it was not very coordinated. Some contacts were more knowledgeable than others and there was not uniform expertise.

  • Time Off Balance: I've found it confusing since I started using it. The number has been off before leaving me to believe I had used more time than I had, and then scrambling to try to use up my PTO before it expired. You can pull a PTO report that I have found to be accurate, but the number on the dashboard can be misleading.
  • Reporting: Clunky and not customize-able enough for our business needs. The reporting dashboard is slow.
  • The link placement for our benefits portal is hidden. I've had to walk numerous employees through finding it, even after sending out a detailed how-to guide.

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.

The transition from my old provider to Paylocity was virtually painless. I always felt well supported by my account rep. I would use Paylocity again, but I'm not in a position to change providers at my current company right now.

Solid network - down for upgrades at late hours during the weekend when I am definitely not in the system to use it. Even if I was, they provide excellent advance notice.

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.

Return on Investment

  • We currently use ADP Resource for payroll and some HR only. We have been approached for the 401k and insurance portion of ADP Resource but we have separate third party administrators for those.
  • The customer service is outstanding. I would not change anything.
  • I understand and agree that the employee's would benefit from viewing and making limited changes to their employee record and this will be approached in the next meeting we have with the president of the company.

  • We have saved tens of thousands of dollars by using this product over the competition and well into the hundreds of thousands by not being payrolled via a PEO.
