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.

The system allows us to make informed decisions through the accurate reporting capabilities which are a great help when dealing with complex people issues. The reports are accurate and are great for situations such as absence reporting.

Pros

  • It does a great job of keeping track of all your pay at various other jobs that also use ADP TotalSource. You can easily log in and verify any information that you might need to check on.
  • The privacy feature is really great so that only you can see documents with financial information on them.
  • The app is also really handy and easily accessible. You can pull up anything in a pinch if you don't have access to your work computer at the same time that you need to look up something.

  • Complex reporting is made easy through the reporting capabilities of the system. We have been using reports for the past year and absolutely trust the accuracy of the data produced. The reports are generated easily through the system and can be exported into an editable Excel spreadsheet which is great.
  • The self-service of data is great for freeing up HR time. Employees can update their personal information themselves quickly and easily.
  • The App is a great feature of People HR. A large proportion of our employees work in our warehouse and as such don't have their own computer at work. The app allows those employees easy access to the system on the go.

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 system tends to be particularly slow on Monday mornings and sometimes can be down for a couple of hours at a time which is frustrating for employees
  • The naming of the tabs isn't as clear as they could be. For example, reports are called Queries. Makes getting used to
  • The org chart isn't very user-friendly, would be better to be able to export department by department

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!

We observed 3 other products and PeopleHR had more to the product for a much lower cost when we compared.

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.

  • The system has freed up time of our administrators allowing them to get involved in more and develop themselves within the department
  • The data allows us to accurately report on absence which has supported the development of a new absence management process
