ADP SmartCompliance

ADP SmartCompliance is well suited when it comes to providing a Tax Summary. The ADP 'SmartCompliance portal is user-friendly and lets you know if you need to work and tasks or are in great shape. It also has a good notice of notifications and lets you know when something needs to be resolved.

Zenefits

Zenefits makes sense for you if you looking for a system to manage personnel info for a team that is slightly more tech savvy. Associates utilizing the app on their smart device has been so valuable to information out and back quickly. However, people who don't have smartphones and smart devices (or don't use their smart devices to their full potential) struggle a bit.

Cons

  • It would be nice to locate tutorials on how to use SmartCompliance navigation for example.
  • It would be nice to have access to reports for longer than 90 days if needed without having to involve the acct manager.
  • I would like to see more self-service handouts regarding the tools offered by ADP.

  • A few things about setting up payroll have been a bit glitchy, notably the inability to record a permanent as well as a work mailing address for some employees.

The account managers have too many clients to give great customer service all the time. I had to complain to get better customer service

I can see room for improvement, particularly in seamless ticket transition from a chat interface to a phone call to email support, but all three options works.

Alternatives Considered

More functionality and very easy display
Ramona Fenner profile photo
Much less robust with fewer fields, such as effective dating and ability to create complex reports. Much lower cost. More value by handling the administration of benefits, COBRA and ACA filing.

Return on Investment

  • ADP makes our tax filing and reconciliation process very easy. It takes a minimal amount of time to reconcile and file payroll taxes.
Paul Barnes, CPP profile photo
  • Very low cost compared to other HRIS system options, especially with the combination of benefits administration.
  • Saved on HR department budget, as well as storage space that would be needed for paper filing.
