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.

Oracle HCM Cloud

For companies which are following very streamlined and standard industry approved processes, HCM Cloud works well. But if you have some not so standard or common business needs, a lot of modules might become a big nightmare. It's difficult to change the default behaviour of the system to suit your business if it's not following best practices. Also, you have limited or no control over the database and your data will be stored on Oracle servers and although it is safe and secure, if you'd rather have at your own place, go for EBS instead of HCM Cloud.

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

  • Taleo is a very powerful ATS providing many options for recruiters, hiring managers, and hiring decision makers. Options is a strength because it allows flexible configurability to a particular company's needs.
  • Taleo updates are regular and generally come with enhancements that most users experience as positive.
  • Taleo is cloud-based and the platform has been extremely stable and the service highly reliable--I can't remember any 'downtime' due to the provider (Oracle) in over 2 years.

Cons

  • 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
Kimberly Cavanaugh, PHR profile photo
  • Taleo is missing a strong training/education piece for new users. It's not an easy program to learn. And it's not an easy program to use until you learn enough about how it operates and the rules that govern its structure--like using a lot of energy and slowly pushing a big heavy object until it gains enough momentum to make pushing it noticeably easier.
  • For a small to mid-size business (250 employees now) to expand the functionality of Taleo (which definitely exists in the program) you're looking at a substantial investment in time and money to train well an administrator and daily users as well as hiring managers.
  • I'd like to see an easier and cost effective interface with other HR software such as payroll and a core HR program.

Oracle managed to maintain its useability advantage. It will have new competitors on eRecruitment, where needs are quickly changing.

Oracle has an excellent support model. The challenge is in adopting this support model and making traditional IT and non-mature system administrators use this model. In combination with the Oracle Cloud (client) Community, the support is excellent.

There is a lot of potential on Fusion. We have reaped about 10% of potential benefits. Especially on Workforce Intelligence, the opportunities are huge. The reason why we do not use the solution at its full potential is not in the product (which is simple and transparent). A roadmap is under construction to bring more of its potential to the end user.

Alternatives Considered

Paychex is probably the worst system I have used. It's not intuitive at all and is lacking in so many key areas of a good HRIS. I think UltiPro is a system that stacks up against ADP TotalSource the best. But again, ADP TotalSource will be what I choose because of their customer service for not just me but our employees. Their support is second to none!

Taleo is simply the most sophisticated and best Applicant Tracking System for experienced recruiters to use. Other ATS's pale in comparison due to ease of use, ability to organize the Hiring Process quickly and efficiently, as well as the ability to use the system to prescreen candidates and communicate with others to provide instant feedback.

Taleo (owned now by Oracle) continues to be an incredibly powerful product and it's scalability is among the most robust of any ATS in use today.

Return on Investment

  • Employee satisfaction with the Employee Service Center was high
  • TotalSource's employee support is like having a PT HR employee on staff!
  • At times, if I needed a tailored report, it would take time to get ADP to build it for me and get it back. Not a lot of time, but not as easy as doing it myself.
Kimberly Cavanaugh, PHR profile photo
  • Absolutely increased recruiter efficiency
  • Candidates are quickly screened and feedback can be provided immediately
  • Ability to utilize as a search tool to quickly find candidates for open positions is very positive
