ADP TotalSource

ADP Totalsource is well suited for any size company. It is a functional warehouse of information and is especially handy for an HR department and a great investment. It should eliminate employees coming to you all the time with questions about their pay or other financial questions. It is also great if you are someone that switches from one company to another often because it will store all of your information for you. If you do not know about the privacy setting, that could be an issue because then others could view your personal financial information. I would not recommend purchasing if your company is incredibly small depending on how profitable your company and what industry you are in.

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

  • Enhances employee recruitment and self on-boarding, helping new employees settle quickly in their roles.
  • Manages the employee information, ensuring its confidentially and impartiality is guaranteed all the time.

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
  • Database infrastructure - Visual Fox Pro
  • Organizations with multiple FEIN's - The product does not handle employee transfers well across FEIN's
  • Custom Reporting Limitations - Crystal Reports is difficult for the basic user and requires IT support.

I do not work with this software anymore, and I am not involved with the renewal of it. However, if I were, I would still suggest using it unless something better was introduced

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!

Sage HRMS is popular and it's used in most organizations due to the reputation of Sage in coming up with popular and reliable business softwares. The software is not that expensive and after learning how to use it, everything becomes smooth and perfect. It's ultimate strength lies in payroll management and helping in applicant tracking capabilities

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.

  • Cost saving for staff time.
