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.

I believe an agency with under 100 employees can probably get away with any system, but Sage Abra definitely supports agencies with larger staff better than some.

Pros

ADP Vantage HCM

  • Great automation. When an employee requests off, it will automatically notify me and then send a confirmation back to the employee.
  • I absolutely love the payroll feature, it is easy to find a discrepancy in payroll. Visually appealing pop-ups and animation.
  • The News section easily allows for organizational posts or notifications.

Sage HRMS

  • Custom fields/screens are available giving you that ability to build the database as you need it and making it easier for the user to follow.
  • Interface between HrActions as well as the Power PCS add -in. This allows data to be current without manual intervention.
  • Easy to read screens. Everything is right there...there is no "hidden" data.

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.

Sage HRMS

  • The reporting function is not user friendly unless you are skilled in Crystal.
  • There are several screens that need to be updated when changes are made e.g. if you make a change in benefits, you have to go through a few screens in payroll to make sure everything went through.
  • There are small hiccups that happen within the system that are not explained. e.g. something doesn't calculate correctly and after researching with support help there is no reason given for the mistake, just a hiccup.

I do not work with this software anymore, and I am not involved with the renewal of it. However, if I were, I would still suggest using it unless something better was introduced

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.

Sage HRMS

  • As we have grown as an organization, the deficiencies in the reporting function have created more work for staff as we have to find other ways to create reports.
  • Over the last few years, we have encountered a few issues with calculations from the system which have caused a lot of additional labor hours and dollars to correct the problem.
