Likelihood to Recommend

ADP Vantage HCM

It is likely better suited for an organization on a very small budget looking for an ATS, Payroll and Benefits portal all in one without the frills of easier UX / UI

Cornerstone OnDemand

The tool is so flexible and powerful. We have recently trained 4 system administrators in one of our Call Centers to publish eLearning and assign this learning to their call center reps. They have to assign multiple courses every single day. I was able to create a role in the system, where these admins can create content and assign to just their division and it doesn't disrupt our overall corporate training initiatives, while supporting their needs fully.

Pros

  • fairly intuitive most of the time
  • nice new user experience for employees with MyADP
  • can process payroll
Shelly Guilmette profile photo
  • Great customer support and client approach. Very professional product management team.
  • Cornerstone OnDemand's functionality covers most of the requirements from different industries for both white and blue collar [workers].
  • Good possibility to configure solution.
  • Delivering new enhancements with every release (quarterly).

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we needed and were forced to 'upgrade' to a product which does not provide the basic functions that we had on the 'old/outdated' application - would have expected to get at least what we had plus some new functionality - now forced to redesign processes and find ways to work around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
Shelly Guilmette profile photo
  • We would like the ability to change due dates right on the user's transcript for overdue training. We can change to a future date, but we can not add a date that is in the past. We need to go through the proxy enrollment steps, which takes longer.
  • It would be nice if Dynamic Proxys were editable. If we want to change a one-time training to a recurring training, a whole new proxy needs to be created.
  • We would like more options for the fields that are displayed in the org chart and user profile - currently we can select only between Division and Position.

Usability

ADP Vantage HCM5.3
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

For an LMS, it’s not horrible. They are making improvements with their customers support team, but it still has a long way to go.

Also, because it is a cloud solution, there is little flexibility with getting changes made in the system. Even items that are logical and would be a great improvement, it takes a long time, if ever to get these changes put in.

It was down for a couple of hours in our first month. Occasionally, in the evening we have trouble logging in even though it is not a maintenance window.

It’s surprisingly slow for a SAAS product. When you click on links, there’s no hourglass or waiting indicator, so it’s difficult to tell if the system is going to respond.

First response times typically take greater than 4 days, which is problematic when there’s an urgent need. Out of 6 tickets we’ve entered, we’ve had to escalate 2.

Online Training

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.

Dig deep on what your current processes are and how they match up to Cornerstone OnDemand functionality. It's not that the Cornerstone OnDemand is bad, it just the amount of work it requires you to do to get your current data to fit into their system.

Alternatives Considered

PayForce did everything we needed with less dependence on ADP and at lower cost - Vantage cost more, delivers less and makes us more dependent on ADP - if we had an option we would have stayed on that platform.
Shelly Guilmette profile photo
On the whole, CSOD outperforms the other LMS systems I've had experience with. In my experience the codebase is more robust and reliable, and the architecture allows a greater degree of flexibility when mapping HRIS fields to reflect an organization's structure. From a non-technical standpoint, CSOD surpasses many other providers by being a thought leader in the space of talent development. They offer solutions and philosophies as a value proposition in addition to their technology offerings.

Return on Investment

  • Overall ADP is one of the more expensive systems out there. We decided to take the chances and go with them. We make it work but there is always more that you want out of your system.
  • If you want it ADP may have it but how much are you willing to pay for it. Its not always worth the $$.
Marcy Clark profile photo
  • The system and the way its build has created opportunities and bainstorming to find solution how to better use it. It has created opportunity
  • It a good system to sty up to date in terms of new features and new options - being on track for exemple on the Recruitment 2.0
