ADP SmartCompliance

ADP SmartCompliance is a great resource for users of the ADP suite of products. I don't have any real negatives. I think it's one of the best third party resources that my company uses, and I've seen a number of them. Also, the continuous improvement of the website and it's offerings keeps me coming back to see what else I can do on the site. I've used SmartCompliance since it's creation, and other ADP resources prior to SmartCompliance and I am thoroughly sold on it.

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.

  • 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

ADP SmartCompliance

  • I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ADP ADDRESS DEALING DIRECTLY WITH THE COMPANY PREFERRENCES; AND NOT USE GENERAL GENERIC METHODS. WE KNOW ADP CAN PROGRAM TO YOUR COMPANY SPECIFIC NEEDS, BUT IT WOULD BE NICE IF CERTAIN ISSUES COULD BE USED ON A CUSTOMIZE BASIS. EXAMPLE RETRO PAY CALCULATOR PAID AS A SEPARATE CHECK AND STILL GENERATE INTO BATCHES FOR PAYMENT PROCESSING.
  • I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ADP PROVIDE MY TRAINING TO UNDERSTAND THEIR REPORT STRUCTURE AND HOW TO TRULY USE THIR ADP COMPLIANCE FULLY. THEY HAVE PROVIDED 2017 SOARS TRAINING BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A MORE OF A ONE ON ONE COMPANY BASIS TRAINING.
  • ADP CAN HELP WHEN IT COME TO CLIENTS REACHING REPS IN A MORE TIMELY MANNER THE ACCT MANAGER USUALLY DOES GET BACK TO YOU BUT NOT ALWAYS THAT SOON.

  • 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.
