ADP TotalSource

ADP TotalSource is my company's PEO. Being an HR department of one, the support I received from the was worth its weight in gold. They have so many resources already in place that I was able to make use of instead of researching and creating myself. One part of having them as a PEO that I wasn't a fan of, was the limitations we had in choosing our benefit carriers. They had contracts with two health carriers to choose from. So if we weren't happy with rates, there was only so much room to negotiate, at the carriers knew that.

If your company has only one way of paying hourly or salaried employees then the payroll module may work well.

Pros

  • The prebuilt reports were excellent
  • TotalSource came with the Employee Service Center support - the best part of TS
  • The software integrated with our time keeping system which made payroll a little easier

  • No one does payroll better than ADP. They have a long standing history of being a leader.
  • The support team to which we were assigned post-implementation is outstanding. Their customer service skills are off the charts, and their response time is good. It's a good match-up of personalities.
  • Having a cloud-based system takes a lot of load off an IT department as opposed to an on-premise software. With so many priorities and other systems that an IT department has to support, it is nice to call a dedicated response team to help with issues. If there are payroll issues, especially, a fix needs to quickly get in place so that paychecks go out on time.
  • Having a cloud-based system that also has mobile capabilities allows employees to access the system any time and place.

Cons

  • I wish that there was a feature that would allow you to do some financial planning with your money.
  • If you can't remember your password or username, it is really hard to retrieve and they always take a long time to get back to you.
  • One other con is that it is not always the easiest to navigate and sometimes you don't realize that you have gone to a different screen and then it gets you out of everything and you have to do the log in process all over. This would be more of an issue if you were using a computer instead of the mobile app.

  • The software is still very new. As with any new software, there is a lot of room for improvement. One good thing about ADP is that they are interested in user feedback to make changes. Also, they incorporate changes fairly quickly.
  • The payroll processing time is longer than I've experienced with other software packages.
  • There are a lot of processes that could be put into the hands of the users instead of having to rely on the response team.
  • From my understanding, Vantage is not a global solution.
  • The software has a lot of potential. There are a lot of improvements they need to make to be more competitive in the marketplace.

I have no renewal decision power, but it seems that the system does what it is meant to do for the 750 employees that it supports.

There are a lot of steps to learn, you can't just "wing-it". You really have to take notes and familiarise yourself

A lot of set ups vary from company to company so parts of our training we found it difficult to relate it to our processes. They have TONS of training modules available and a streamlined process for what you should complete and when. Would have been helpful to have onsite training for how much one pays for the system.

Alternatives Considered

We use ADP simply to to track pay for employees. We really like more of the functionality of Workday as it is really easy to import org charts and track performance. The graphics and appearance of these sections are also really nice! We also use Workday to track time off as it was more popular among employees to use when we asked them to compare more options. However, ADP is much better at tracking pay and because it carries information over from previous jobs, employees really like this as well!

There is good and bad with any software that you choose. In the selection process, our organization had narrowed it down to SuccessFactors or ADP Vantage. Both had their strengths. In the past, I've used JDE, SAP, and Optimum. Most of my experience is with JDE. Honestly, I could give you pros and cons with each one of them

Return on Investment

  • It has helped us to keep track of various financial information for employees and this has helped our HR department.
  • We were trying to find a system that was more user-friendly and many people are able to use this pretty easily.
  • We found more cost effective methods to do absence management and goal setting because this system was too expensive and cumbersome for us.

  • It has saved web.com a lot of money having one all inclusive platform.
