Likelihood to Recommend

ADP TotalSource

ADP TotalSource (as a PEO) is well-suited for companies that need a little help acquiring the next tier of benefit offerings from payers. Assuming they continue providing additional training to account representatives, they are well suited for companies who would like to reduce their exposure to payroll and human resources. The service is less appropriate for smaller companies who can easily handle payroll functions in house.

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.

Pros

ADP TotalSource

  • Their payroll software offers the expected levels of security/controls regarding timecard approvals.
  • Personally, I have found their "canned" reporting software pretty easy to use.
  • As far as account representatives, William (Bill) Eddy has been a pleasure to work with. The majority of the other individuals assigned to our account have left a poor taste in my mouth. Terrence Jeffrey Malari was a great deal of help in working through some personal questions I had. Actually, the representatives assigned to individual needs seem to be pretty helpful, the account team could use some additional training.
  • ADP built a custom report that is capable of uploading directly into our general ledger.

Vibe HCM

  • Vibe HCM is highly configurable. That flexibility is extremely useful.
  • 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

ADP TotalSource

  • Many of the individuals that have been assigned to our account over the years have provided a poor level of service. Typically, the poor service was due to lack of training (they appeared to be genuinely trying). Recently, I have had great success with William (Bill) Eddy.
  • We have observed rising fees over the years. After shopping the market, it appears that these fees are not in line with what we should be observing.

  • The email notifications could be more clear, and more easily modified.

Alternatives Considered

ADP TotalSource

At the moment, we have not investigated any of the products available in the drop-down list provided. However, we have evaluated some other (unavailable) products and have been intrigued by the potential decrease in fees along with the potential for a much more "rich" benefit plan. We can't speak to the level of customer service observed by current clients, only to apparent cost savings.

Return on Investment

ADP TotalSource

  • Due to poor account management throughout the majority of the relationship, our overall business objectives have been negatively impacted by the relationship. The PEO service is relatively "expensive" and we expected better service.
  • The simple fact that we have now had exposure to PEOs has had a positive impact. We now understand some of the struggles to expect during onboarding and the on-going relationship.
  • Auto-generation of bi-monthly payroll journal entries has been helpful in creating visibility to payroll's impact on finances (by individual/user).

  • Better service for employees from the HR department decreasing employee frustration.
  • Improved organizational communication.
