Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Other products in the same category as Kenexa 2x BrassRing would be Taleo and PeopleFluent. I would also look into Avature as an ATS option. I am currently on the sourcing side of the recruitment process and use Avature for tracking and candidate mining purposes. I would recommend getting any kind of demo possible since the user interfaces vary quite a bit between them. Ease of use and overall stability should be kept in mind when comparing ATS prices.

Pros

ADP Vantage HCM

  • The best thing about having all the product offerings associated with ADP Vantage HCM is being able to offer a "one-stop shop" to our HR practitioners, managers, and employees.
  • The convenience of ADP Talent Management and ADP Recruiting Management's full integration with Vantage allows us to create more efficient performance, compensation, and recruiting programs and procedures.
  • The user interface.

Cons

ADP Vantage HCM

  • 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.)

Kenexa

  • We would love to see a more comprehensive dashboard and having to not use as many clicks to get to where I need sometimes.
  • Perhaps more parsing options for even easier, more automated usage.

To be honest, this decision would not reside with me, however, while I would recommend some changes, I think that overall Kenexa is an effective tool.

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

ADP Vantage HCM

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

It stacks up well against Bullhorn CRM for candidate retrieval but not as streamlined or automated

Return on Investment

ADP Vantage HCM

  • 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

  • Increased new hires
  • Increased job visibility
  • Increased ease of applying
  • Increased ease of onboarding
