ADP SmartCompliance

It is suited for when I have to submit my past W2C amendments and for accepting payroll sweeps from my company. It tracks those very well where there is hardly any problems.

Paylocity Web Pay

It's a suitable platform if you're looking for a self-service portal for employees. Fairly easy to use, has all of the information they'll need. It does have SOME quality reporting options, but it does leave a lot to be desired. We've often found ourselves wondering why there isn't more customization for that particular area. If everything is functioning properly, requesting time off is easy for employees. It is not a 100% error-free platform (what is?), so you will have to deal with various issues along the way.

Pros

  • It accurately keeps track of payroll's transmission sweeps in their ADP Ledger.
  • It's able to keep track of all amendments and their status.
  • You can view all rates and ID numbers in SmartCompliance.

  • Time tracking and integrating with payroll - payroll can be done quickly.
  • The interface is user-friendly for employees. It can be a little overwhelming for new employees, but once they get used to where things are, it's nice to have so much information in one place.
  • During tax season, the digital W2/tax forms are easy to access.
  • Within the self-service portal, employees can acknowledge and congratulate one another. It's always great to have a platform to encourage fellow employees.
  • Does have a reporting dashboard that provides helpful, but basic reports.
  • Pricing is decent, compared to similar platforms.

Cons

  • The transition to ADP could have been smoother.
  • Our initial setup was not as efficient as it could have been.
  • I was left out of important communications in the beginning.
Larry Roepke profile photo
  • Customer service - although you do get a dedicated rep, they seem to change quite a bit. Additionally, responses have not been timely for us. We often find ourselves continually reaching out. When we do reach someone, it seems we get a lot of "I can't help you now, but let me find someone who can and get back to you", then no one does. We've gone around and around on several issues.
  • It doesn't seem to be as customizable as it claims to be/should be. One tweak in the system and things seem to be thrown off. We've had issues, such as making pay rate changes, that seem to become bigger issues than necessary.
  • We've had trouble with features/links either moving or no longer being visible. We've had employees who have trouble submitting PTO because the link is not visible. When they log in at a future time, it's there. It has been an odd issue no one seems to be able to explain.

I use ADP more often than anyone in our company, and it has saved a great deal of time, money, and effort in payroll tax.

In general, implementing a new HRIS system is a bear due to the setup and especially benefits vendor feeds. I wouldn't consider based on the amount of work and because our product just works as is.

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

ADP is a leader in the industry for a reason
Michelle Gagnon profile photo
The ADP platforms did not allow us as much access to our data as Paylocity. We were constantly needing to reach out to the ADP support team to run reports or fix things within the system. With Paylocity, we have significantly more access, which leads to reduced wait times and higher efficiency. Employees have also found the self-service aspect to be leaps and bounds ahead of the prior ADP system.

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.
Ramona Fenner profile photo
  • For the first 5 years we've had Paylocity, the ROI had been great. Our pricing is fair and the benefits and time saving tools were great!
  • During the past year since we added the Web Time product, the ROI has been significantly less as we have had to spend a lot of time trying to determine why we've had issues and then spending time fixing the issues.
