If your company has only one way of paying hourly or salaried employees then the payroll module may work well.

Patriot PAY

Patriot PAY is well-suited to a company that has a 10-day window between the end of the pay period and the payday. The company size makes very little difference and it is easy to use for any company. It is also very progressive in development and improvement. If a company has a small window for turn-around, but fairly consistent payroll amounts (such as a lot of salary workers), Patriot PAY might also be a good fit for them.

Companies with tight turn-around times or payrolls that vary significantly in direct deposit amounts might have difficulty using Patriot PAY.

Pros

ADP Vantage HCM

  • 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.

  • Basic payroll--as good as anything else out there.
  • Tremendous value--not only is it a capable package but it's the cheapest I know of.
  • Customer service is exceptional.

Cons

ADP Vantage HCM

  • While ADP Vantage is a one-stop-shop, it's still made up of different modules that don't always play well with each other, leading to disconnects that affect our employees' experience with the system.
  • Customization to suit your organization's needs can be limited - we need to be able to house far more data in client-customized fields than are available to us.
  • Requests for new features and improvements to functionality are added to an "enhancement queue" that appears to be so long that it may take years for your requests to be implemented.

Patriot PAY

  • The third party direct deposit processor Patriot previously used was not particularly easy to work with...but Patriot just brought all direct deposit processing in house.
  • Clergy housing allowance has to be manually entered each payday. They tell me they're close to adding the capability of making it (and other similar pay types) as a recurring item.
  • The setup process is geared toward novice users who need to be hand-held through the process. That's great for those who need it but a more streamlined, no-frills process payroll pros would be welcome.

sometimes I wish there was a better alternative - it is a good product but very expensive and we don't always receive the level of support that could be expected when paying such a high premium - we were basically forced to migrate onto this new platform that does more than we want as a payroll only client but were not given an alternative - this newer and better product had to be customized to perform tasks we expected to be standard and required a lot of our time and effort to manage at higher costs and our level of support reduced - was not a very satisfying experience - although it now functions as needed and most of the time it is ok - there are very basic issues which should have been resolved in beta testing that are a constant frustration - hope more time and planning is being put into whatever is currently in development to avoid this in next 'upgrade' of the product

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

We have had ADP for over 18 years. Our parent company wanted all their dealers to go onto the Vantage system, it improved all of our processes. There are less human errors and a lot of the information is put in by the employee.

I switched from ADP to Patriot PAY almost 2 years ago. I switched because Patriot was a much better financial deal. Also, Patriot has MUCH better customer service than ADP. They have an online chat, which is very quick and easy to obtain an answer. They also (usually) answer the phones very quickly and are knowledgable and able to resolve any issue that I have had. ADP was always difficult to get a hold of and speak with and their service (the SAME service) was much more expensive.

Return on Investment

ADP Vantage HCM

  • It helped us reduce the cost of duplicating work by allowing us to connect to other systems through automated data feeds.
No photo available

Patriot PAY

  • My market niche is small religious non-profits--a group not known for being well funded. That means I have to operate on a slim margin. Prior to switching to Patriot I was on the verge of being squeezed out of the payroll prep business. My then-current provider was about to raise their fees....again. I had been with them for about three years during which time their wholesale fee had already almost doubled and another huge bump was going to mean I would be paying almost 150% more than when I began with them. The quality of Patriot's service coupled with their affordable fee structure made it possible for me to stay in the game.
