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.

Workday HCM

I always recommend Workday to others, mainly because the reporting makes my life so much easier. I think any large company with a significant amount of HR data to track would benefit from Workday. The implementation process is a significant time commitment so it may not be worth it for smaller companies who have other ways of tracking information.

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

  • Workday has a very responsive customer support staff.
  • Workday is very concerned about quality, and has put many checkpoints in place to ensure the product customers receive is built with the utmost precision.
  • Workday is great about giving customers what they want. They are continuously evolving, improving, releasing new functionality, and solutions each week, to meet the needs of their clients.

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
  • Workday's Talent and Performance module is vast and possesses a lot of great functionality, however Workday currently offers no Certification for Implementers, which I feel is very much needed.
  • The recruiting module still has a long way to go. It is new, so we all know that is has gaps, but with WD24 coming out in March, I believe it will take Workday recruiting to the next level!
  • It would be great if Workday would share more information with partners, whether that be through a weekly status meeting, or email. Workday has done a good job at building their Community, however there are times where it has not been updated, and we share outdated information with customers.

Currently budget and reality are what makes me rate this a 9. We have invested so much into Workday and have customized and continue to customize our needs into a product that for right now, does seem to meet our company's needs. I don't know if we would need such a robust system for a company smaller than 500 employees but certainly for over 1,000.

The object-oriented model makes it very easy to navigate. The UI is very user friendly with icons. One of the biggest obstacles to overcome from an end-user perspective is the fact there is no menu; but everything can be driven off an object and through a related action. Again, if you can buy something off your favorite consumer website - you should be able to easily learn navigate

We had one downtime event only on their sandbox – but it coincided with time that were doing training, so was a problem. We were down for a day.

There are 11 different courses. They have on-demand training one hour sessions and host half day training sessions – e.g. report writing split across 2 half days, where you go into a classroom online instructor led. The online stuff is all provided by Workday.

It was implemented before my joining the company. At my last company, we used Workday professional services.

Based upon my experience at my last company, I would rate the implementation experience an 8/10. There are different ways to set things up and we had different people telling us different things. It set us back a couple of times.

Regarding configuration advice, we could set things up where every manager has supervisory organizations, or have it financially based i.e. aligned to cost center/department. We chose the individual manager path and I think we should have chosen a department route. Going down the individual manager path, to maintain the information, we have to inactivate a supervisory org whenever a manager changes/leaves.

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!

I wasn’t here when we made the selection. I was however, when we selected Workday at another company. At that time, we looked at Ultipro and Oracle Fusion HCM Cloud Service.

To me, Ultipro looked very windows based. It did not have a hip cool UI and we knew that employees would reject it. With respect to Oracle Fusion, I really liked the product when I saw it, but the sales pitch was very poor

Workday has released Financials and is continuing to develop it's Human Capital Management footprint with the addition of Workday Recruiting. I think customers will find that is easy to add on additional functionality in the system.Workday does make it easy for customers to make changes without relying on IT resources. The Business Process framework is a visual tool that allows functional resources to make changes and see the flow of the transaction

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.
Kimberly Cavanaugh, PHR profile photo
  • Positive - I have all of my pay history in one place
  • During tax season, it is very easy for me to find the information I need
  • For expenses, I can easily find past history and duplicate if I have a recurring payment
