ADP TotalSource

ADP TotalSource (as a PEO) is well-suited for companies that need a little help acquiring the next tier of benefit offerings from payers. Assuming they continue providing additional training to account representatives, they are well suited for companies who would like to reduce their exposure to payroll and human resources. The service is less appropriate for smaller companies who can easily handle payroll functions in house.

Netchex is well suited for any company that wants to make payroll easier and have a powerful HRIS system capable of customized reports, time and attendance, on-boarding, recruiting, benefits and more! Taxes are filed automatically, W2s are available online and year end is a breeze!

Cons

ADP TotalSource

  • While the prebuilt reports were great, I would have to contact TS in order to get a custom report. This only happened a few times because like I said, they had a variety of prebuilt reports that fit my needs
  • iReports was implemented and it became more difficult to find employee paystubs and find YTD pay

Netchex

  • We have not found any areas that are difficult to use. Netchex customizes reports for us if they are not found in the formatted reports.

Very hard to get someone on the phone when you need them. TotalSource was supposed to be an extension of our company. We never felt this way.

Alternatives Considered

ADP TotalSource

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!

Reporting features available in Netchex far exceed those we were able to get from optimum. Customer service from Netchex is light years ahead of the competition!!

Return on Investment

ADP TotalSource

  • ADP has made onboarding a breeze, which has saved us a ton of time in the hiring process. Freeing up employees to start work as soon as possible is extremely valuable in any space.
  • ADP doesn't need direct oversight most of the time, it being a very "set it and forget it" type of platform frees up our HR department for other things.

Netchex

  • It's fully automated for online processing
  • It allows us to process payroll without having to hire additional personnel, thus saving us money.
