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.

Oracle Hyperion

This product is well suited to a company that needs a very robust consolidation tool, has good IT support, and has the budget to hire a full-time administrator. It does consolidation really, really well so if that is the primary need, then this is probably a very good choice. For a company with a fairly simple structure that only needs to roll up GL data into some financial reports, there are quicker, simpler, and effective products available at likely a fraction of the cost.

Pros

  • ADP Vantage HCM is nicely laid out so it is user friendly. It gives you the look and feel of what other popular apps might look like so there is a familiarity there.
  • ADP Vantage HCM being a one stop shop, makes it nice to only have to keep track of one log in and I have all of the information I need at my fingertips.
  • ADP Vantage HCM is always evolving and while at times this can be a challenge I find it to be a strength that they are always trying to improve the product.

  • HFM will handle complex calculation and consolidation rules extremely well. It's flexibility for writing new rules is unmatched in other products I have seen--the world is quite literally your oyster with this product. You will not come away saying "I wish we could get it to do_______" because it seems there is always a way!
  • The Smart View tool is how most of our users interact with HFM, and obviously the only way they interact with Essbase. It is a very good tool, and speed of Essbase queries is always strikingly fast. The HFM queries are slower, but that is due to the underlying structure of the database being much different than Essbase. Basically all of our reporting is done in Excel using the Smart View add-in.

Cons

  • Although Time and Payroll are integrated, it's not integrated enough. The data sometimes doesn't "flow over" to Time and we have to call ADP to have them push it through. When you are on an employee's record in Payroll, you can go to any other part of there profile such as Tax Withholding, Deductions, etc...which is great, but if you want to go to their timecard, you have to go into Time and do another search to find the employee then open the timecard.
  • The audit trail in the system needs to be enhanced. Currently you can run a report to get an audit trail on user activity, but not all screens are auditable. If I need to know who made a change to the Time Information screen, and when the change was made...I am out of luck.
  • Some records should not allow backdating the effective date. This causes us problems with data validity. For example, Direct Deposit, you can't change history so this screen should never allow you to enter an effective date of a closed pay period that already was paid.
  • The Time Off Request feature has lots of room for improvement. One of the biggest issues we have is that a manager will Approve a request then later realize they need to Refuse it, or the employee needs to Retract it. The system gives you the option to open the Approved request then you can Retract or Refuse it...but that action does nothing. Common sense would tell you it removes the PTO day, but it doesn't. To remove a prior Approved PTO day you have to go to a completely different area, which the average user would never find.
  • Our employees earn an annual amount of PTO based on their hire year. The system should not allow them to use more PTO than what they earn for the year, but this is not an option. We can easily put a limit on the balance, but not on the amount used.
  • Garnishment module of Vantage is not user friendly, very difficult to use. They do have a WGPS service you can purchase, but if you want to do garnishments in house without paying extra, its a struggle.

  • Sometimes the error handling is not the best it could be. Some more error detail could come handy sometimes.
  • Although it has a very user friendly interface, the technical aspects (such as configuration and management) can improve a bit.
  • The product is a little bit expensive.

I have no renewal decision power, but it seems that the system does what it is meant to do for the 750 employees that it supports.

We're in the middle of the road because we are not sure that other products on the market fit the bill for what we need yet. Hyperion is expensive and burdensome from an administrator and maintenance standpoint, but it still seems to be the best solution for what we need. Show us an equally capable SaaS consolidation product and we'll talk again.

Online Training

ADP Vantage HCM5.9
Based on 3 answers
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 crushes our previous product, Tock.
No photo available
We have evaluated other options in the past, and we are currently re-evaluating some of the SaaS providers due to the increased strength of those products over the last few years. However, our biggest need continues to be a very capable consolidation tool as we are consolidating over 80 entities around the world. There are few competitors that can match the quality of the Hyperion product as a consolidation tool, so we have stayed with them for the last 8 years. As competitors improve the quality/capability of their products, we will be tempted to move away onto something that reduces our IT burden and has more user-friendly reporting tools

Return on Investment

  • Saves more time for personnel to actually help the employees
  • Self-service is great for employees
  • The reports and management of data is great and very useful

  • It helped the key financial users to drill down to the transaction level from the Main General Ledger Accounts with ease. This helped the key finance users to have a better visibility of the transactions involved with any general ledgers.
  • Though there are few limitations with the product, it has best suited our client, as their requirement very well matches with what Oracle Hyperion EPM had to offer, which means it was a value for money initiative.
