ADP Vantage HCM

I hope that as the system is improved it becomes something that we the client enjoy using. We were told Payforce was being eliminated and we needed to switch products. It was not a choice. I would hope that if we are being told to move because a functioning product is going away, that we would have had the chance to get on a product that is fully developed and not something that is less user friendly that what we were using. Change is good, if the change is well executed and the change has the features needed to do the job as good or better than you currently were before the change.

Dovetail Employee Engagement Suite

I believe the Dovetail Suite was suitable for what my organization used it for in our HR Department, data collection and case tracking for over 1000 employees. The software was well suited for this and provided us with multiple ways of reading and managing the data for reporting, EEOC claims, evidence of liability, etc. I believe Dovetail would be less appropriate for an all around Human Resources Management System. This is more of a data tool

Pros

  • The DataBridge for importing data is nice but it is critical that it is set up correctly which is difficult. Once working well it has an ease of use.
  • Manual check processing is good and efficient
  • One stop shop for different things such as quickview. This is my favorite feature.

  • Employee Self Service - All of our employees who used this service had nothing but great things to say about how user friendly it was and that the data was easy to read and search through.
  • Dovetail Customer Service - Our rep was instrumental in making sure we had all of the tools we needed for launch day. The system had no surprises and everything was explained in detail prior to going live.
  • Data Tracking - Keeping track of Employee Relations in a company of over 1000 employees can be a difficult task but Dovetail made this very easy. Adding cases and managing the progress of cases that are assigned to you is very user friendly.

Cons

  • ADP in general LOVES to roll out new products however it is very clear the new products are not tested by people that actually would use the product. Also they tend to roll out products that are NOT ready to be rolled out. ADP Vantage in general is a great example of this. ADP wanted to be a contender in the product solutions of everything is 1 product and it is seamless. That is NOT true about ADP Vantage. ADP Vantage is not real time when it comes to benefits talking to payroll. Ben Calc still needs to run in the background and be set to payroll. ADP Vantage should have never been marketed the way it was. Unfortunately our company bought into it and we have the product we have and now have to work with what we have.
  • Another example of ADP rolling out new products before they are ready is My ADP. I tested this thoroughly before and I had to send a 17 page document to my service team to fix items that were not correct. Its frustrating to say the least.
  • ADP loves to change your service team on you. We have had it rough since day 1 with ADP.... our service team is who we rely on to get answers to issues. ADP will just switch them without any notices. Mary Ladwig was a great service rep for benefits and without notice Mary was pulled from my account and I was given a different rep. Not only did ADP do this without notice but they did it right before Open Enrollment the absolute worst time for ADP to pull a rep. We have had the most challenging Open Enrollment and it is purely because ADP decided to pull my rep and then give me a completely inexperienced rep for Open Enrollment implementation.
  • ADP Reporting is horrible. There is nothing to say other than it is not user friendly.
  • ADP loves a good release to try and fix issues. However 99.9% of the time the release causes more issues that ADP did not test for.

  • I would like to see a recruiting piece added to the management system. This would make it easier to track employees within the Dovetail Suite who were new or were no longer with the company.
  • Dovetail may now be integrated with UltiPro but at the time it was not and this would have been a nice feature.

Usability

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

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 were previously on ADP but the portal was phasing out. We decided to stay with ADP because we thought it would be the easiest transition. It was hard and we are still working on this 4 years later. At this time we are not changing systems however we are not apposed to this.
Marcy Clark profile photo
Dovetail was perfect for solving a major issue regarding our Employee Relations data tracking. No other software that was researched gave us the flexibility to track our data and manage our programs efficiently. Dovetail support was also better than any other software support I have worked with in the past. I would recommend their product to anyone

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
  • Dovetail saved our HR Department time and money on Employee Relations questions and topics in that our Generalists were able to look up other cases that were similar in order to compare the issue the employee was having at the time. This allowed them to focus on other HR related questions throughout the day.
  • Our overall business objective was to save our HR Department time, while also giving the Generalists tools to tackle their daily objectives without hesitation.
