Likelihood to Recommend

ADP Vantage HCM

I have used many payroll services and software. ADP Vantage is definitely the most advanced and intuitive product that I have used. We have a decentralized payroll, and it works great however I understand most clients do all the payroll at one location, so it suits either way. I not only recommend it for the exceptional product but also for the customer service that ADP provides.

If you are a growing organization, Resource Allocation, Forecasting and Analysis tool is very useful.

Pros

  • 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.

  • This software is highly configurable. Very easy to use. Lots of out of box integration.
  • It's got a mobile app and is also cloud based.
  • The goals module is our biggest used module. It also has great features like instant feedback, applicant tracking and onboarding.

Cons

  • The software is still very new. As with any new software, there is a lot of room for improvement. One good thing about ADP is that they are interested in user feedback to make changes. Also, they incorporate changes fairly quickly.
  • The payroll processing time is longer than I've experienced with other software packages.
  • There are a lot of processes that could be put into the hands of the users instead of having to rely on the response team.
  • From my understanding, Vantage is not a global solution.
  • The software has a lot of potential. There are a lot of improvements they need to make to be more competitive in the marketplace.

  • Wall of fame or the feedback given to the users cannot be controlled. The users cannot choose or control who can view their wall of fame.
  • The dashboard is customizable at organization and geography level but cannot be customized at the individual level.
  • The filter on archived goals does not work properly using text search.

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.

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

We have had ADP for over 18 years. Our parent company wanted all their dealers to go onto the Vantage system, it improved all of our processes. There are less human errors and a lot of the information is put in by the employee.

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
  • It's saving us about 40% of what we are spending
