ADP Streamline Payroll

Make sure you understand exactly what ADP Streamline is before you purchase. And make sure you get a great rep!

It works great for large companies. There is flexibility in sets ups where there are multiple pay groups, jurisdictions, union and non-union workers. It may not be a good fit for small companies

Pros

ADP Streamline Payroll

  • I liked the notification features of the payroll module, which helped ensure, that payroll was processed in a timely manner without missing any deadlines.
  • The features in the payroll module seem effective to ensure that no accidental erroneous data entry can take place by a payroll administrator.
  • The CRS system allowed us to generate consolidated payroll summaries for all of our foreign sales office which were very beneficial and useful for our Finance Department

UltiPro

  • HRIS - UltiPro allows us to capture all employee data in one place and accommodates the various jurisdictions in which we operate (esp. currency conversion using our budgeted exchange rates).
  • Reporting - UltiPro has a very robust reporting tool that allows us to analyze our workforce data.
  • Customer Service is very responsive and helpful. Cases can be submitted online which makes them easy to track. The customer service team follows up by phone but also updates the online case with recaps of all conversations as well as the final resolution. This makes it easy to refer back to the solution if you encounter the issue again.

Cons

ADP Streamline Payroll

  • ADP Streamline billing is slow to react to company changes. Hence incorrect invoices from ADP Streamline were issued and it took a very long time to get their billing department to correct these and issue credit notes.
  • In the payroll system I missed not being able to obtain a per country headcount and payroll numbers. Once payroll is processed it goes directly into an archive and is not easily viewable. It would be nice to have more visibility of personnel and payroll data.

UltiPro

  • As with many other systems, UltiPro is first and foremost as payroll system and does not easily/effectively handle position management. We budget based on position and need to track positions whether filled, vacant and being actively recruited, or vacant/on hold. We had to find a bit of a workaround to do this in UltiPro.
  • UltiPro offers a lot of online (both live and recorded or self-paced) training but doesn't really dig deep into this powerful and robust system. Live classes are web-based and tend to have many (hundreds) of participants so it makes in-depth training and questions very challenging.
  • UltiPro currently has two different time management systems and, depending on which one your company uses, you have different functionality. This can be confusing to end-users -- for example, if you use their UltiPro Time Management (UTM) system, you must navigate to the Time Management section in order to update timesheets or request PTO but the home screen has a Request PTO feature that results in an error if the employee tries that link. It can be confusing. (Note: they have developed a Time Management system to be rolled out 2019 so this issue should be corrected soon!)

Incredibly happy with the functionality of Ultimate and excited for the direction they are going in. With custom built programs that work seamlessly throughout the platform, most organizations will not have a need for anything third party.

For the most part UltiPro has been reliable, but it could definitely be better. There have been several notable server issues where we were unable to access the product or unable to utilize some of the features. Customer support is usually quick to respond to questions about these issues, but they do not proactively reach out to customers whose environments have been effected by outages

The implementation project is aggressive but achievable. Ultimate provides great support for this effort. Consider the project plan and make sure you have the internal resources available to support it before you begin. Consider the timing of the implementation plan. If you purchase optional modules, consider taking a break after CORE implemenentation before beginning another activation project (to give your staff time to recover). Consider the deployment timing to coincide with the beginning of your fiscal year (it is not required but it will make some balance-forward calculations easier). For now, consider deploying the optional modules after Ultimate has finished bringing them in-house. Engage your benefits vendors early in the process to allow time to develop the automatic feeds from Ultipro.

UltiPro

We used ADP for several years and then we decided to switch to Ultipro. The product was very limiting and it wasn't a robust HRIS system. The employees and managers did not have a great experience, nor was it user-friendly for HR administrators. Their reporting tool was very difficult to navigate through making it hard to create reports.

UltiPro is a full cycle HRIS - from recruitment to retirement. We started with just the Core/Payroll module and have since added Open Enrollment and ACA administration. As we continue to grow, I am looking forward to being able to add additional (seamless) modules to assist in meeting our HR and organizational objectives.
