ADP Workforce Now

With the overall functionality of ADP Workforce Now, I cannot imagine an operation that would not be able to successfully utilize the product. Perhaps a company with no employees, and no payroll or benefits. ADP Workforce Now is a great product with full functionality! We tried other payroll companies before we knew ADP had Workforce Now. We quickly returned to ADP once we learned of the Workforce Now product, due to the confidence we had in ADP.

Pros

  • ADP Streamline works best if you have a great ADP rep on the other end for your payroll purposes. I had a fantastic rep who was very responsive.
  • The ease and security of the upload process makes things quick and easy. Especially when actually preparing the payroll for upload can be difficult.
  • The report running format when I was using ADP Streamline was extremely user friendly and easy to navigate.

  • The interface is extremely straightforward, and our employees love the simplicity involved in requesting time off, changing direct deposit information, using various calculators, and viewing pay statements.
  • The support is excellent with knowledgeable representatives.
  • Payroll Processing is quick and accurate, easy to preview, with exception reporting capabilities that support our benefit transmittal, reconciliations, and G/L interfacing.

Cons

  • Training was almost non existent when I was using the service. It was easy to figure out but I could have benefitted from some detailed training to help me better use the system and all its functionality.
  • I'm not sure this is anything ADP Streamline can fix because of time differences and such but it was very much like I was on an island waiting for messages in a bottle. I would upload and it would take sometimes more than a day to get a response.
  • The process was very manual when I was using the system. I did all my payroll work off ADP Streamline and basically used it to upload and relied on the rep to enter everything correctly. I felt like I had less control than I would like. I would have preferred to have some control over what was being uploaded and entered.

  • I would have liked to see some more flexibility in the reporting tool.
  • I really wanted to see more data/employees on a single page than the limited view (I think 15 or 20 in the version I was using). There was no ability to scale the window to allow me to see more than those few candidates at a time
  • I would love for them to include a simple click on the payroll roll up side for me to easily see YTD totals rather than have to go in and select each individual check to include in the roll up.

Because most of the payroll piece is self explanatory. Some training may be required to learn the lingo, but they also have "help" screens available on each section. I use this function if I don't understand what is going on. The time and attendance piece is fairly easy for the employee to learn with very little training.

The instructions from the recruiting agency on how to use the system was pretty straightforward. It provided step-by-step procedures on where you would need to log in your hours as well as what you would need to highlight (i.e. regular, overtime, etc.) detailing the type of hours that were worked overall. The handout also provided some pictures of the application

Either assign more than one specialist to the implementation process, or assign less clients to the implementation specialist. The process requires attention to detail and the ability to test and re-test as well as verify the information. It also requires a lot of back and forth between the client ant the implementation specialist, so they need to be readily available during the whole implementation process.

Alternatives Considered

I can't really answer this question as I was the user of ADP Streamline but had no input in the choosing of ADP Streamline.

Clients chose ADP workforce NOW and required specialist for implementation and ADP provided referal

Return on Investment

  • ADP Streamline was just a function to us so I can't really say it had a positive or negative effect on our business objectives. We went with Streamline because we already were with ADP. We didn't really shop.
  • Because of the great rep we had we were able to get a more positive response from our German staff to their pay. Before I came on board there were a lot of payroll errors which had an effect on staff morale. With help from the rep we were able to improve our accuracy and pay people correctly.

  • We are consultants for companies that have chosen WFN so ROI is not relevant for us but I believe it is good return if implemented properly
