ADP Vantage HCM

I think it all depends on what the client is looking for. I mean we have been using Vantage for the last 6 years and it has come a long way from where it started. The nice thing is we have been able to grow with it and configure things to how we need them to be for our business. So each business needs are going to be different and ADP Vantage can keep up with those needs.

How many recruiters do you have working out of the system? This would be great for more corporate, hierarchical organizations with multiple levels. It is not a good system for SMB market or startups where functionality, streamlined usability, and social recruiting/engaging employees is of high priority

Pros

  • Friendly user interface and easy on the eyes. Users utilize multiple functions through menus much like a standard website. My company also uses SAP, which can be somewhat difficult for those who are not technically proficient.
  • Easy to update settings and workflow.
  • Implementation team was helpful and friendly.

  • The system is intuitive from an ATS standpoint. It is easy to review candidates in a job.
  • Customer service is available via phone or online ticketing system. It is rare that a customer representative who answers the phone can't handle the issue during the call.
  • The software streamlines our offer letter and approval process.

Cons

  • It has plenty of room for improvement primarily with user interface and product training for new clients.
  • It could be more efficient at integrating and pulling applicant's resumes from various job boards into the ATS feature of the system.
  • It could improve on pushing out job descriptions to various job boards as well.
  • It could be much better at setting up automated alerts and notifications for each user when an applicant has completed a step in the process (i.e. background check's, resume submission, signing of offer letters etc.)

  • I am not happy that iCIMS recently changed their job-posting provider. They switched from TalentBrew to JobTarget. It's not as smooth, there are more clicks and steps, and I have a feeling that I'm going to start being charged for this which will make me very unhappy. I miss the ease of TalentBrew.
  • Even though their customer service is fast and great and they still do anything that I ask them to, I have noticed that over the past several months their response time has gotten a little slower. It used to be that they'd get back to me the same day and generally have my customization or problem solved in the same day. Now, it takes a few days. I've had one as long as a week. So if you are really reading this iCIMS - please know that your customer service, ability to do whatever the customer asks and respond fast sets you WAY apart from the rest. Please don't change....tighten it back up. It's still excellent and better than anyone else in the market, but I'd hate to see that slip to average.

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

I don't use every function so I don't know what I don't know. Perhaps, the fact that I don't use every function is a veiled way of saying that it seems a bit overwhelming to master.

We never experience outages that impact our usage. I also can't remember any recent time where there has been an error within the system that has prevented us from using the application as needed on a regular basis. If there are ever any issues, iCIMS has a customer service department that is very easy to reach.

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.

The new update is a great improvement on the old outdated UI, but the UX still lacks some modernized and streamlined flow to it. Clunky UX makes for clunky training.

Alternatives Considered

ADP Vantage HCM is not an optimal solution compared to the features offered by Greenhouse and Bullhorn Recruitment CRM. If a recruiting team has a need for a detailed pipeline that is accurate, user-friendly, easy to integrate and migrate data then Greenhouse or Bullhorn Recruitment CRM would be better options. ADP Vantage is very much a program that is difficult to adopt and use
Clay Baswell profile photo
It is definitely better than systems I have used in the past, but in the HCM space, the bar for usability is pretty low in my experience

iCims is currently pretty good and the best TAS for us at our stage of growth - but further improvement and enhancements will only help make it even better.

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
  • Very positive. Implemented in under 60 days.
  • Save so much time in managing the candidates
