Likelihood to Recommend

ADP SmartCompliance

I believe ADP SmartCompliance is well suited for any organization that has implemented an HRIS system, such as Workday, but do not want to fully be responsible for the tax filings. I also feel it is very well suited to organizations such as ours that have employees in almost all 50 states. This helps to keep our payroll department staff at a minimum knowing we can rely on the cooperation between the Workday and the ADP SmartCompliance system. I think the only way I would not think SmartCompliance would be helpful would be with a very small company that would prefer to fully outsource their payroll process.

Our agency has a number of federal and private grants tied to personnel costs and allocations. DATIS e3 is extraordinary at allowing the end user to slice information as needed for complex reporting.

DATIS e3 is a different kind of system that may not be the solution for someone who is looking for an “off the shelf” solution. It is flexible and customizable to meet the specific needs of your organization. It is robust and thorough. They could benefit from spending money on a mobile solution.

Return on Investment

  • It makes tax fling easier and W2 processing is very simple.
  • Registration for the W2's employees is too complicated for employees and we have to add additional help to manage the registration process.
  • There is a time difference for any process with ADP, most process do not post immediately and you have to wait on reporting as well.

  • DATIS has allowed us to spend less time on payroll processing and accounting of payroll
  • Better grant management allowing us to minimize the risk of unclaimed revenue
