I LOVE ADP; ALL COMPANIES HAVE ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENTS
Vanessa Anderson profile photo

ADP Vantage HCM

I think it all depends on what the client is looking for. I mean we have been using Vantage for the last 6 years and it has come a long way from where it started. The nice thing is we have been able to grow with it and configure things to how we need them to be for our business. So each business needs are going to be different and ADP Vantage can keep up with those needs.

Pros

  • ADP PROVIDES A VERY WELL KNOWLEDGABLE STAFF TO ADDRESS ANY ISSUE YOU MAY ENCOUNTER
  • ADP ARE CONCERNED ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL AS A USER OF THEIR SERVICES AND ALWAYS OPEN TO LEARN WHAT THEY CAN DO BETTER
  • ADP DEFINITELY WILL SEE ANY ISSUE THRU O THE END; GREAT FOLLOW UP SKILLS

  • ADP Vantage HCM is nicely laid out so it is user friendly. It gives you the look and feel of what other popular apps might look like so there is a familiarity there.
  • ADP Vantage HCM being a one stop shop, makes it nice to only have to keep track of one log in and I have all of the information I need at my fingertips.
  • ADP Vantage HCM is always evolving and while at times this can be a challenge I find it to be a strength that they are always trying to improve the product.

Cons

  • Some of the SmartCompliance modules (i.e. Aline) are fairly new, thus can be a little buggy in the initial usage. Items like historical data from the prior PAT system are slow to move over, meaning multiple log ins are still needed to access history
  • Customer Service support is great, but sometimes it can be difficult to get Technical Support involved to assist with things like troubleshooting data integration issues or site specifications to build/improve data flow.

  • We just upgraded to Vantage Time Version 8. While we are glad that we do not have to worry about Java any more the look and feel is a little lack luster. The screen is boring and it can be hard to locate what you are looking for because nothing really stands out.
  • Since upgrading to Vantage Time Version 8 things have been moved around that we were not expecting so I think it would have been helpful to have that laid out during the implementation process.
  • The other item that I have personally had issues with is Employee Documents. This has given errors across our company so at any given moment you do not have access to obtain an EE's documents. This needs improvement.

I have no renewal decision power, but it seems that the system does what it is meant to do for the 750 employees that it supports.

There are a lot of steps to learn, you can't just "wing-it". You really have to take notes and familiarise yourself

A lot of set ups vary from company to company so parts of our training we found it difficult to relate it to our processes. They have TONS of training modules available and a streamlined process for what you should complete and when. Would have been helpful to have onsite training for how much one pays for the system.

Alternatives Considered

More functionality and very easy display
Ramona Fenner profile photo
I have used Certipay previously. I didn't see it in the list of options to choose from. Certipay had some really great reporting features and we were able to process payroll in three days instead of two but I would say ADP has been able to grow with us and is meeting most needs.

Return on Investment

  • ADP has only provided positive impact as it's the system we use to ensure our reports are available timely and accurately.
Evelyn E. Bozeman profile photo
  • It has definitely had a positive impact. We are able to use the data in ADP for making decisions. Using previous products the data was too hard to get to or it was not clear what you were getting, but with ADP Vantage it's clean and simple to extract any data needed.
  • We have saved time by having a system that runs smoothly and is easy to use. Practitioners no longer spend time manually entering timecards or fixing employee records.
  • We are able to verify the data prior to running payroll which reduces errors.
