Likelihood to Recommend

ADP Vantage HCM

ADP Vantage works as well as the people who use it. Ensure that you have a solid training plan in place and continuous support - especially if your company is just moving towards a more technical process. You will also want to build a strong relationship with your ADP Service Team to ensure you can get an answer as quickly as possible for unexpected issues (such as during payroll processing).

I would really recommend it to other companies. Especially to companies like ours, startups, 10+ employees. CakeHR gives you a good overview of all the teams, days off, and you have all the data about employees in one system.

Pros

  • fairly intuitive most of the time
  • nice new user experience for employees with MyADP
  • can process payroll
Shelly Guilmette profile photo
  • Super easy and usable system.
  • Great customer service; listens to feedback and does something with it, answers really quickly.
  • A good overview per team for managers.
  • An app available for every employee to quickly arrange a request.

Cons

  • The workflows are clunky and outdated; they are difficult to build and maintain from an administration standpoint. Every workflow needs to be available as a customizable activity to fit your business.
  • There is a lack of messaging/communication tools. All notification through the system are tied to a workflow, and the templates available are not sufficient. There's not a lot of field available for formatting. There's no way to send messages to external email (i.e. an email NOT in ADP, like a group mailbox). And there's no direct messaging capability.
  • More in the area of timekeeping, especially around mobile barcode reading. Parity with the mobile platform is still lacking.
  • Auditing. The auditing features in this system are not great, and SOX compliance may be difficult.

  • Not all features for an HR system are available in CakeHR, but they are working on it to improve and expand

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.

Return on Investment

  • Our payroll process is so streamlined now, with so many less coding errors because it is entered in the field and approved by field managers.
  • We are paperless now, no more overnighting checks to the field.
  • And employees are much happier not having to cash checks.
Jennifer Halvorson profile photo
  • The system shows us all days off and overtime, so we can manage this and know everything is like agreed in the contract.
  • A simple and affordable system with room to grow.
