ADP Vantage HCM

ADP Vantage HCM is well suited for a variety of industries. While the product is delivered with a great solution for office employees, it is configurable to accommodate unique working situations and special pay items for operations employees.

Ascentis Payroll

Ascentis Payroll is well suited for small companies where there is minimal audit/review that needs to happen. The system is something that has to be audited regularly. Also may be a good solution for an organization that has a well versed Payroll MANAGER, versus a Payroll Administrator that may require some guidance.

Pros

  • Great automation. When an employee requests off, it will automatically notify me and then send a confirmation back to the employee.
  • I absolutely love the payroll feature, it is easy to find a discrepancy in payroll. Visually appealing pop-ups and animation.
  • The News section easily allows for organizational posts or notifications.

  • Creating Manual Checks: this system is very easy to create a manual check on an emergency/as needed basis.
  • Canned reports: good selection to choose from
  • Easy to load reports from timekeeper to ensure accurate processing

Cons

  • Reporting in ADPR is not intuitive or user-friendly
  • Lacks advanced technology that other payroll systems provide
  • It is not as integrated as they think
  • It is too hard to get the capabilities you need to be successful in using the system
No photo available
  • Custom reports: not user friendly or intuitive and have to call support every time and they are not the most trained to be able to assist
  • Taxes: A lot of back and forth with the Tax team and they make the ownership on the employer without providing much support
  • Not all items flow from Ascentis HR to Ascentis Payroll so there are many duplicate manual additions to record.
  • All updates have to be entered into HR before it flows to Payroll system. If update made in Payroll system, it will not flow over to HR system.

There are a lot of steps to learn, you can't just "wing-it". You really have to take notes and familiarise yourself

Online Training

ADP Vantage HCM5.9
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.

Alternatives Considered

I was not part of the decsion making team
Yvonne Paul profile photo
Paychex worked a lot easier and their representatives knew the system in and out. Any issues were easily resolved and if a solution required time, they would always find a way to help the customer versus having the customer try to figure out what a solution is. This can be rather frustrating when you are an administrator and are not the subject matter expert

Return on Investment

  • negative -it slows our processing due to limitations and issues
  • negative - makes us more reliant on our service rep which slows us down (we used to be able to make changes like adding departments on our own - now our rep has to do this and other maintenance for us)
  • negative - we now have to pay for ADP to process adjustments for us instead of being able to use adjustments on our own
Shelly Guilmette profile photo
  • Positive: One seamless solution that pulls in time and attendance for quick processing
  • Negative: Multiple audit of system and information processed through
  • Negative: taxes-- must have knowledge of payroll taxes, their "experts" are not always helpful
