I LOVE ADP; ALL COMPANIES HAVE ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENTS

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.

Pros

  • ADP has integrated with Avionte which simplifies our processes.
  • ADP reports keep us informed of our credits and opportunities.
  • ADP works with us to help design the internal processes to maximize the credit opportunities in an efficient manner.

  • Zenefits keeps it simple, associates don't dread logging in because the dashboard layout is a collection of apps , you click the icon for what you need.
  • Zenefits has a chat based Help Desk so you can get answers to questions immediately.
  • Zenefits offers a great resource for administrators call Club Zen. Club Zen features HR related articles and information to supplement continuing eduction for our people experts.

Cons

  • Once a jurisdiction is mapped it should be mapped across all payrolls.You have to repeat the process too many times.
  • If there are problems with smart compliance being down a notification to inform users that there is an issue via email.
  • The display of smart compliance is not easyto see most of the text is located at the bottom of the page which makes it hard to locate and view important information.

  • While the Tech Support is fast to respond, the actual resolutions can take a while to come into play
  • In the Time and Attendance feature it allows people to clock in early from 30 minute unpaid breaks if they wish. Most TimeKeeper apps prevent you from ending a break early to comply with the law, switching to Zenefits actually increased our California meal break violations.

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.

Overall most issues are handled quickly and accurately - there is some sloppiness with the Tax notice department in labeling and handling some cases

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

ADP is a leader in the industry for a reason

The only direct competitor for Zenefits I looked at was ADP Resource and found that Zenefits was easier to start with and more cost-effective for our needs.

Return on Investment

  • SmartCompliance has been a cost saver. We used ADP's full service payroll product previously.
  • The quarterly and yearly reporting has made internal reconciliation much easier. It have been a time and frustration saver.
  • I like that the product is web based and allows us to work towards a paperless office.
  • I feel confident ADP has reduced any risk exposure to noncompliance or late filings.
Michelle Gagnon 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.
