Overall TriNet provides a good solution, but is expensive. Their technology could improve as well. They released a new HRPassport site, and it was obvious they didn't test it well as there were several obvious defects. Certain features don't work as well as the old site

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.

  • Employment data collection. HR Compliance.
  • Variety of healthcare insurance options.

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.

  • The only feature that I would like to see improved is a connection between their time and attendance module and their payroll module. Although both systems are easy to use and I have my process down to a science, it would be nice if I didn't have to export the data from T&A and import it into payroll.

I'm assuming this question is specifically targeting TriNet's website/platform. I view TriNet as a complete package including customer service support, etc.
Overall, the platform allows me to complete my tasks, however, there are times where I spend more time that I would have liked searching for how to access time off approvals, etc. Again, I would encourage a fully functional website product before release.

The TriNet service team is very responsive to our questions and website challenges. As mentioned before in the Cons section, website functionalities - ensuring a product is functional before it is released is highly desirable. Switching between the various sections seems clunky at times and the look at feel don't match the new platform. However, functionality is key - often I have to revert to the original platform to perform many of my functions.

Someone familiar with benefits and human resources should be in charge of the implementation. It is a human resource platform.

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.
Sandra Van Munster profile photo
I think we were skeptical about what TriNet could do for our company but given our size and operations extended to multiple states, we didn't have other options. However, TriNet has worked very well for us and has allowed us to grow as an organization. I can't imagine life without TriNet at this point. I'm quick to point out the benefits to other similar type organizations we work with.

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.

  • TriNet allows me to hire people with the experience in the field we support while knowing the HR compliance, payroll, etc. are being complied with. Previously, it was a person attempting to fit into this role with limited to no experience.
  • We are a small organization ~15 employees but have employees in nine states. Without TriNet, I wouldn't be able to hire the talent I have been able to hire, offer competitive benefits, or comply with nine different state regulations.
