ADP RUN

RUN is good for companies that don't have a dedicated team for payroll and human resources. Everything you need can be found within the platform, including recruiting, forms and templates. If you don't want to take the time to add employees to the system, you can simply enter their name and email and turn it over to them to enter their info. Employees have access to their check stubs and can adjust their taxes, etc. on their own, saving the employer time and overhead. I don't believe that the platform is ideal for companies who have zero experience with payroll, as I believe having a dedicated representative for questions is more beneficial in those scenarios, but anyone who has done it for a few years should find the platform ideal and user-friendly.

Vibe HCM

I have spoken to many colleagues and potential customers about Vibe HCM, and what resonates the most with me is their diversity in customers. It allows them to really reach across industries to share either best practices or ideas that may not have otherwise reached over the industry barrier. Some companies really have a niche of customers in a specific industry and while this can be a benefit in some regards it can also hamper the associating and diversity of ideas. I think that the configurability of the product and the partnership from their team really makes them a strong contender in the marketplace.

Pros

  • Easy to use website. Don't have to phone in the payroll!
  • All necessary reports available in PDF format to download.
  • You can see what the total cost of the payroll will be (including withholding) before you approve it.
  • Very helpful phone support.

  • The product allows your personality as a company to shine through. To me this is pretty rare and so important for us as an organization. If we are truly building a social/communication platform we want something that feels like WE are speaking to our employees (our branding, our voice, our site). We also wanted to build a platform that looks and feels like other social media platforms on the web and not like a dressed up company intranet.
  • Partnership. Vibe HCM and the team that supports the product are amazing to work with. They not only help you configure the product to meet your businesses needs but they come to the table and brainstorm with you so that you truly are building something amazing and impactful.
  • Great user interface that is very intuitive and behaves the way most employees are used to interacting with the web and finding information.

Cons

  • Having a dedicated customer service rep or department, maybe even local, would be nice for those rare occasions that we need a little help.

  • With the pace of social media and mobile deployment there is always the drive to have more functionality quicker.

Alternatives Considered

RUN ADP gave us the flexibility that QB did not. Using ADP also reduces the amount of forms and time necessary during the month of January.

Our core HRIS system is ADP Enterprise. We were able to get the legacy employee self service contained in the old product up and working. Eventually ADP withdrew support for self service and doesn't support self service for premise based installations. We needed an employee portal. We heard about Vibe HCM and visited with them early 2007. It was a no brainer. The implementation of the basic functions was rapid and had very few issues. We have added functionality as our organization has been able to adopt the changes.

Return on Investment

  • RUN ADP has allowed me and my staff the flexibility of offering payroll services without being tied to the office 5 days a week. We prepare mostly tax returns for our business, and outside of "Tax Season" we have Mon - Thurs hours. This allows one person to handle any payroll issues that might arise remotely.

  • With the implementation of pre-boarding/onboarding we were able to greatly reduce the administration time our managers were spending to onboard a new employee.
  • Improved transparency in our organization around our vision/direction and a direct link for all employees to our CEO (CEO's blog).
  • Opened up channels and created opportunities for our employees to communicate and connect across the country.

We offer our products as a comprehensive suite, or on a modular basis as our clients' needs, priorities and budgets dictate. Our clients do not need to do a full "rip and replace" of current systems that are working to deploy Vibe HCM. We can seamlessly integrate with existing technologies, providing a highly engaging "one-stop-shop" / unification platform.
