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.

Paycom

If a company is in a growth phase Paycom will teach you how to grow up and take HR seriously. The system is filled with rich content that guides you through various points of HR you may not currently know that you need to address. It's not just software it's filled with rich content that will help you learn as you grow. The world of payroll and payroll taxes is a slippery slope. I'd suggest growth companies focus on their core business and leave payroll, especially payroll taxes to the experts. Taxes are hard enough as they are, why try to deal with the effort and liability of paying payroll taxes yourself?

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

  • The layout is clean and straightforward. When our company began using Paycom I missed the initial orientation but I was so pleased when I realized how simple the interface is and that I was able to quickly figure things out on my own without having to bother HR!
  • One of my favorite features of Paycom is Batch Approvals. Whether it's requesting time off or approving time cards, Batch Approvals are simple and time saving! I also love that I get notifications when people put in a time request. Personally, I don't need to log in every day, so it is helpful to have that notice in my inbox letting me know there are approvals waiting!
  • It is so easy to make adjustments with Paycom. Since my team isn't always in the office and is often filming at different locations, every now and then someone on the team might forget to clock in or out. Initially I was worried about that being a hassle to fix but when I realized how quick and easy it was to make corrections to time punches I was so relieved! Now I don't worry about having another "to-do" on my list if someone forgets to clock in because I know it will only take me a minute to correct!

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

  • Just staying on-top of trends within HR.
  • Continually training of internal teams.
  • More solution based selling.

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!

I can't remember the last software we used for payroll. It was a program loaded on our computer with updates when the tax rates changed each year. I had to prepare and submit the payroll reports monthly, quarterly and annually. Thankfully, the program was discontinued and I was forced to find an alternative. I received a call from a Paycom Sales representative that very day and my 'life in HR' has been awesome ever since

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.

  • Freeing up time
  • Helps employees manage their own information
