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).

Their learning system is unmatched - it really has most of the features we required in our environment which is heavily instructor led as well as online. If they can get their support lined out to provide timely support they will be the leader in this area and I would be able to give them a 10

Pros

  • The data dashboards and metrics are phenomenal; they can really be used as tools for managers to gain better insight into the business.
  • The MyADP interface is great for front line employees. We have a very high mobile adoption rating and a solid 4.5 stars average review from users.
  • We recently completed open enrollment and users were very receptive of how easy it was to enroll and manage their benefits.

  • Intuitive administrative interface, allowing me to configure most of what I need on my own and not requiring vendor assistance.
  • Multiple support options available. When I need help, there are plenty of resources: inline help, online learnings, communities, customer support center managed through tickets or phone calls, etc.
  • Consistent UI and UX for end users across all modules. It does not feel like each module was purchased and cobbled together with others, which is how some other vendors' product suites feel.

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  • The workflows are clunky and outdated; they are difficult to build and maintain from an administration standpoint.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.
No photo available
  • Reporting has some limitations, both regarding the standard reports and custom reports. Not enough standard reports or options to modify them and custom reports creation is reasonably robust, however not all data (fields) captured in the system is available to use.
  • The system provides the ability to request and provide ongoing feedback, however it is limited in how it can be configured.
  • A company-wide 9-box review process can be achieved, however limitations on numbers of people and workflow configuration made the process for us a bit difficult.

It meets all of our business needs at the moment. It is the most robust tool for LMS out on the market right now. the automation assigning of training for over 120+ job titles has us rooted and flows our daily training per new hire perfectly

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.

My issues have always been understood and resolved. I don't feel like I'm explaining it to someone who doesn't understand the system. Often times they know the issue and have quick fixes from their experiences.

Very personable and patient. Features that I'm sure to them are very simple and repetitive were trained with patience and understanding.

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.

The interface not great. It would be nice to have a full video vs. slide by slide.

They use their LMS tool – it’s a curriculum. It is slow going.

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

ADP Vantage has more to offer.
Maria Zheleznyak profile photo
Other products were either inferior or too expensive. The one product that was closest to what we needed was Halogen. In the end, our selection of Cornerstone was based on:
  • Breadth of services
  • Overall cost
  • Product functionality and performance
  • Product roadmap and future vision

Return on Investment

  • ADP Vantage will actually save us money, as we have been able to eliminate many additional seams (original separate programs for performance management, absence management, unemployment filing, benefit feeds, etc.)

  • Improved internal / operational efficiencies
  • Improved business process agility and outcomes
  • Improved employee engagement and recognition
