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.

Pros

  • SmartCompliance captures all the payroll data in one location and makes it easy to access.
  • SmartCompliance allows us to run reports when we need them. We can upload our periodic, quarterly and annual data and quickly extract reports to review for accuracy before the filing deadlines, which allows us to correct any issues without tax penalties, etc.
  • SmartCompliance makes it so easy to generate tax amendments when needed. The system stores all the employee data and has a process that is very easy to update wages and/or taxes as needed for correction. The system quickly generates the amendment files and provides reports to review for processing with tax agencies. It used to take months to get an amendment processed with our previous partners.
  • We can update tax rate changes, such as SUI rates, ourselves, as we received them without having to use a ticketing system that require monitoring for processing. We can quickly and easily update tax agency notices, which allows for very quick response time by ADP to any issues.

  • Manages the payroll excellently, ensuring that employees benefits are administered and submitted on time.
  • Enhances employee recruitment and self on-boarding, helping new employees settle quickly in their roles.
  • Manages the employee information, ensuring its confidentially and impartiality is guaranteed all the time.

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.

  • The reporting function is not user friendly unless you are skilled in Crystal.
  • There are several screens that need to be updated when changes are made e.g. if you make a change in benefits, you have to go through a few screens in payroll to make sure everything went through.
  • There are small hiccups that happen within the system that are not explained. e.g. something doesn't calculate correctly and after researching with support help there is no reason given for the mistake, just a hiccup.

I do not work with this software anymore, and I am not involved with the renewal of it. However, if I were, I would still suggest using it unless something better was introduced

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
  • As we have grown as an organization, the deficiencies in the reporting function have created more work for staff as we have to find other ways to create reports.
  • Over the last few years, we have encountered a few issues with calculations from the system which have caused a lot of additional labor hours and dollars to correct the problem.
