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.

I would think Sentric is suited for all companies larger than 100 people. When we had less than 100, it wasn't worth the price. We could track 100 people in Spreadsheets.

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.

  • Open Enrollment lets employees view and select the benefit they want for the following plan year. Sentric is easy to use and lets us in HR link their selection to their payroll records.
  • Sentric allows HR and the employee to view their paychecks. They can look at one, or many at a time.
  • When someone applies for a job via Sentric, their candidate records carry through to their employee record after we hire the person.

Cons

  • In the area of quarterly filings, it takes a bit of experience to understand all the reports generated and in which order we should review or use the reports. Laying them out in a organized way that we could quickly go down the list of priority would be very helpful.
  • Occasionally, I need to add a comment to a tax notice that has been submitted and it seems to be locked for commenting. It would be helpful to be able to add information after a tax notice has been submitted.

  • The Ad Hoc reporting capabilities are hard to navigate and get exactly what I need in my report.
  • This is hard to explain... When looking at applicants via their recruiter section, the site doesn't keep up with the applicant I'm trying to view. The bottom section lets me pick the applicant, while the top part displays that person's info. When I select a different applicant in the bottom, the top doesn't always change from the last candidate.
  • The row security is limited. So when a manager is given special access, it's typically either all or nothing.

I haven't explored the other systems in great detail. IFS didn't appear as "user-friendly". Taleo seemed to not have the capabilities Sentric did.

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.

  • The site has kept us compliant and has allowed us to easily keep track of everyone in our growing company.
  • The site has made our benefits enrollment much easier than the old fashion paper and pencil.
