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.

Vibe HCM

I believe Vibe HCM is a very good solution for small to mid-sized organizations. Make sure you have created a list of requirements. The specific questions you ask are dependent on your organization's needs.

  • The portal pages create a friendly user experience that aids in adoption.
  • Vibe takes action on change requests and enhancements quickly.
  • The number of employee self-service options allow for easy colleague use.

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
  • Better layout options.
  • Understanding what is customizable and what is standard.
  • Uploading of documents and formatting.

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!

Our core HRIS system is ADP Enterprise. We were able to get the legacy employee self service contained in the old product up and working. Eventually ADP withdrew support for self service and doesn't support self service for premise based installations. We needed an employee portal. We heard about Vibe HCM and visited with them early 2007. It was a no brainer. The implementation of the basic functions was rapid and had very few issues. We have added functionality as our organization has been able to adopt the changes.

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.

  • With the implementation of pre-boarding/onboarding we were able to greatly reduce the administration time our managers were spending to onboard a new employee.
  • Improved transparency in our organization around our vision/direction and a direct link for all employees to our CEO (CEO's blog).
  • Opened up channels and created opportunities for our employees to communicate and connect across the country.
