Likelihood to Recommend

ADP Vantage HCM

I think it all depends on what the client is looking for. I mean we have been using Vantage for the last 6 years and it has come a long way from where it started. The nice thing is we have been able to grow with it and configure things to how we need them to be for our business. So each business needs are going to be different and ADP Vantage can keep up with those needs.

ADP is well suited when you have a large workforce. We have over 450 employees and frequently have those who are hired and those who retire. It's such a great opportunity to give employees ownership of their own employee information.I think if you have a small business, it may be hard to justify the cost of ADP. However, the fact that they can take care of your payroll and taxes and such is pretty awesome.

Pros

ADP Vantage HCM

  • The new user interface is friendly and easy to use.
  • The Succession Management module is one of the best I've seen. It is easy to navigate the talent assessment and easy to use to facilitate calibration sessions.

ADP Workforce Now

  • Benefits enrollment - saves so much time by having the benefits enrollment online. The benefits cost flow directly to payroll so there is no [chance] for error by entering an incorrect amount. Carrier connections flow the info to our insurance company - no paper forms
  • Keeps us informed on any changes involving ACA, taxes or other federal regulations. Subscribe to Eye on Washington and you are always up to date on current happenings in Washington.
  • Ability to handle all of our state and local taxes. We have 9 states and many locals.

Cons

ADP Vantage HCM

  • The workflow feature of the product is not quite as robust as one would like.
  • The security setup for the product does not retain history that the client can report on, which makes auditing a bit of a challenge.
  • The policy manager does not allow for true electronic signatures and does not meet legal requirements for compliance purposes.

ADP Workforce Now

  • Quicker response from the support lines in answering the call. This would require hiring and training of more support staff, which I understand ADP has been doing... ACA having taken it's toll on support stall at all companies.
  • Taking care of clean up on old issues, some having been escalated to upper management. It would be nice to hear how they are proceeding.
  • Would like to be able to pull the Pay Data to a spreadsheet program for manipulation and entry of payroll. Would save time for our data entry payroll department.

Usability

ADP Vantage HCM

ADP Vantage HCM 5.8
Based on 5 answers
when required to move from PayForce to Vantage we expected to have greater functionality and reporting - did not expect to be forced to move to a product that was not ready, provided less functionality, required more dependence on ADP Service Rep for day to day function and cost more - was a big swing and a miss for ADP

Online Training

Based on 3 answers
A lot of set ups vary from company to company so parts of our training we found it difficult to relate it to our processes. They have TONS of training modules available and a streamlined process for what you should complete and when. Would have been helpful to have onsite training for how much one pays for the system.

The instructions from the recruiting agency on how to use the system was pretty straightforward. It provided step-by-step procedures on where you would need to log in your hours as well as what you would need to highlight (i.e. regular, overtime, etc.) detailing the type of hours that were worked overall. The handout also provided some pictures of the application

Either assign more than one specialist to the implementation process, or assign less clients to the implementation specialist. The process requires attention to detail and the ability to test and re-test as well as verify the information. It also requires a lot of back and forth between the client ant the implementation specialist, so they need to be readily available during the whole implementation process.

Alternatives Considered

ADP Vantage HCM

Our organization chose ADP Vantage HCM in order to eliminate the on premises solution of PeopleSoft as well as to outsource payroll processing. The cloud based, fully integrated solutions that the Vantage product line offers allows us to have a true "one-stop shop" for all our HR systems.

ADP Workforce Now

Our company used ADP prior to Workforce Now. We tried PayChex for one year 11 years ago, however did not like the functionality and time required to process a payroll. We returned to ADP, then tried Paylocity...that lasted one small payroll, as our payroll clerk was extremely dissatisfied with the product. I was on the telephone with our ADP representative asking what ADP could do to help us remedy our error in moving to paylocity. ADP was great, they explained the ADP Workforce Now product. Helped us return to ADP in time to do a full payroll the following week, and helped to collect the information from Paylocity in time to do the first quarter report in a timely manner. This was a difficult task as Paylocity was less than forthcoming with the reports we needed to provide. The Paylocity support team finally admitted they could not do the what they claimed in the demo. Waste of time and a lot of money. ADP Workforce Now has proven to us they will be there when we need them.

Return on Investment

ADP Vantage HCM

  • Our organization has experienced a more efficient and faster recruiting process through ADPRM and ADP Vantage HCM.
  • The analytics and robust reporting tools are user friendly and allow non-technical users to gain data insights to provide better forecasting and metrics to the business.

ADP Workforce Now

  • It's given me a lot more time for other things. Payroll takes significantly less time than it used to, managing requisitions is a smooth process so hiring is more transparent and takes less time, and employees are able to view their own information and make changes. In general, I have gotten several hours back a week just from using ADP, which allows me to focus on our strategic goals.
