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.

If you are handling a large client list, and are selling services, it is dead easy. If you are managing/selling a physical inventory, it seems like it has great options to do that quite well (disclaimer, I do not use those functions, but I have paid attention as that functionality was built into the software). If you want to link your bank account to a bookkeeping platform, this is not the software for you (at least so far).

Pros

  • 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.
Jacqueline Raymond profile photo
  • AccountEdge has a robust report menu that allows a user to slice and dice data for analysis. Report on projects for the life of the project across fiscal years. Report on different departments with segregated income statements.
  • For users who want to run payroll in house that is easily done through the payroll module. Print physical checks or direct deposit to employee's account, process payroll taxes and file year end W2s.
  • My personal favorites are time billing and retainers. As a service based business I can at my fingertips review how much money a client has on deposit with me and how much of that will be billed out at the end of the month. The integration with AccountEdge Mobile rounds it all out with being able to log my time on-site.
  • Last but not least AccountEdge Mobile in general, as the companion app for the desktop software is invaluable. My heaviest use is the spend money feature. Excellent for logging travel receipts & cash expenses while they are fresh on the brain. Really cuts back the data entry at the end of a trip and trying to recall what something may have been for.

Cons

  • There is currently a bug or defect with the calendar popup and it requires a duplicated click to request off.
  • The monthly time off calendar can be improved visually. Need an easier way to see a big picture for the employee.

  • While I absolutely love AccountEdge and feel it is a superior desktop solution there is always room for improvement. While all wish list items don't fit everyone's needs I think there is one we could universally agree upon. So, if I had to choose one thing I would like to see different I will have to say dynamic selection lists. While this is currently available on AE Mobile, it still hasn't come to the desktop. As someone who works on numerous files it would be incredibly helpful to be able to start typing either the name or account # and have AccountEdge narrow the selection down by character string.

AccountEdge Pro & Basic is laid out in easy to use centers which compartmentalize a users needs based on departments. Along with that one can set up recurring transactions for things that repeat daily through annually and anything in between. You can set a preference for automatic posting or a user specific reminder to post the action

One of the finer advantages of desktop software, it's always available. AccountEdge doesn't suffer from outages or sluggish internet like web based applications do. It's always there when you power on your device!

Rarely do we get support due to it costing money. Sell us on a Monthly service, bump up your CRM and Marketing and AccountEdge could easily be getting $2k/ month from us.

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.

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

Return on Investment

  • Our payroll process is so streamlined now, with so many less coding errors because it is entered in the field and approved by field managers.
  • We are paperless now, no more overnighting checks to the field.
  • And employees are much happier not having to cash checks.
Jennifer Halvorson profile photo
  • Since we are so disappointed with the reliability and support, the cost of switching is actually a negative ROI for us.
  • Lack of integration with other applications is hindering my company doing more with it.
