Likelihood to Recommend

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.

I would definitely recommend for smaller companies looking for a SaaS HRMS. It’s cost effective and flexible offering makes it ideal for smaller companies.

I would also recommend for larger companies too - role permissions, workflows, etc. can all be set and managed at a global level. Speaking of which, this system is also suitable for a global company as it allows for differentiation between locations for reporting, work calendars, on-boarding, etc.

Pros

  • The best thing about having all the product offerings associated with ADP Vantage HCM is being able to offer a "one-stop shop" to our HR practitioners, managers, and employees.
  • The convenience of ADP Talent Management and ADP Recruiting Management's full integration with Vantage allows us to create more efficient performance, compensation, and recruiting programs and procedures.
  • The user interface.

Cons

  • functionality is spotty - some things work differently depending on the field or page you are on - but not consistently across the application - some user ID fields need to use a leading zero - some you cannot use a leading zero
  • lots of wasted space which requires the use of slide bars to view info - tons of extra key strokes to view or get into the information you want
  • not a lot of thought given to how users will utilize/interact with the application - during our testing phase we were finding issue that should have been resolved in beta testing - some reports the headers are illegible due to poor formatting which we were told were a 'vantage design' and that we would get used to it
  • the best way to get system enhancement requests to ADP is to complain/comment on The Bridge was the direction we were given
  • we had a fully functional system which did all that we needed and were forced to 'upgrade' to a product which does not provide the basic functions that we had on the 'old/outdated' application - would have expected to get at least what we had plus some new functionality - now forced to redesign processes and find ways to work around vantages' limitations

  • Some links are hard to find
  • iPhone app features are light
  • Cleaner document storage

I have no renewal decision power, but it seems that the system does what it is meant to do for the 750 employees that it supports.

Usability

ADP Vantage HCM5.2
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

The fact that I could jump in for the first time ever using BambooHR and figure out how to use the system within minutes makes for a high usability rating.

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

Oracle and SAP were too expensive. Workday was too new. However, ADP continues to be a bad experience for our business.

BambooHR is better than all other providers that I have looked at. It has a much clearer and simpler interface. It was easy to set up and use right away. I think that BambooHR is the perfect HRIS for any small to mid sized company. It has made things a lot easier for our company. The other systems were not as nice looking and were difficult to navigate. BambooHR lays out everything in a very efficient manner.

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
  • The less time our employees need to go to HR for questions and requests, the faster we are able to move and get things done which allow for people to continue working on their day to day jobs. We have insight into when people will be in and out of the office and can schedule things accordingly. All around insight into employee information is fantastic. Great product.
