Pros

  • The concept is good
  • Help is available
  • User friendly
No photo available
  • Vista HRMS is very flexible, it does everything we need for HR, benefits and payroll. It’s user-friendly and intuitive to use, when we roll out new self-service items our employees have no problems and require minimal training or documentation.
  • PDS has excellent customer service and support. We get answers to the majority of our questions and problems quickly, within the day that we call. More complex issues that may require PDS’ technical support are usually addressed within a few days. We were upgrading our production servers to Windows 2012 over a weekend and a key person in our organization was on leave. When we checked with PDS to see what cost would be involved if we needed their help, they said it was included in our regular maintenance, no extra cost.
  • The PDS User’s Conference is an excellent learning opportunity for training on everything Vista does, including using Crystal Reports for custom reporting. You also get to meet and talk to the executive and development staff and have direct input into the future product development.

Cons

  • ADP sales team should be more knowledgeable about the product they sell you
  • ADP employees should be more up to date on tax liabilities in different states
  • I think ADP should assign one contact person so you don't have to get a different person each time you need assistance
No photo available
  • Typical of any system built for the unknown requirements of hundreds or thousands of customers with varying needs, PDS sometimes doesn't fit our processes precisely out of the box. However, this con is far outweighed by the ability to configure and customize the system.
  • The most significant pet peeve of our users is the necessity for so many clicks to navigate between different areas or the system or to review applicants. These items are being addressed based on feedback from the user community in an upcoming release.

The key factor in continuing with VistaHRMS is the relationship and strategic partnership we have built with PDS. They strive to meet the needs of all of their customers by providing a flexible and configurable system. PDS strives to improve its product in the ways that are most important to their user base.

They are quick to respond to support requests. Often they are able to address the issue without escalation. The support staff are extremely knowledgeable and willing to recruit other staff to help troubleshoot a problem. They frequently do screen sharing sessions to actually see the behavior we experience so they can better understand the problem and get it resolved. Without an exception, all of the support staff are extremely pleasant and enjoyable to be around. They truly value their customers and our success and they try to make it fun to interact with them. Support calls do not incur a support fee either. All support, excluding consulting services, is included in our annual support.

Ask lots of questions, ensure you fully understand the functionality (particularly history records) and train, train, train the users for correct and complete utilization of the system.

Alternatives Considered

ADP was selected through a reference we received
No photo available
I wasn't part of the implementation team for selection of Vista HRMS, but the feedback that I received was that this was the most robust, configurable product on the market for the price range we were looking to spend. No software is perfect, but Vista HRMS does suit our needs and there is always room to enhance the product when you have time, skills and some money for customs to be put in place if you are unable to do them yourself. I have had the opportunity to work with many other Payroll and HR software programs and none of them were as inclusive as Vista HRMS. We always had issues with syncs and integrations between the programs and at times we even had dedicated employees who did the exact same data entry in multiple different systems. This of course is inefficient as well as leaves quite a bit of room for human error.
