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.

Sage People

Sage People is well suited to small-medium sized organizations that would like a cloud-based HR solution with no need for servers or software to install. I really like the fact that it is based on Salesforce.com so you know that it will be extremely reliable and well supported. It is very flexible and customizable and can work in complex HR arrangements. For example, we have employees in nearly 60 countries and multiple HR jurisdictions and we are able to make it work for us. However, if you are moving from a traditional or customized HR system there may be a steep learning curve and you should be prepared to spend a lot of time setting up and customizing to your needs, in addition to training.

Pros

ADP Vantage HCM

  • 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.

Sage People

  • It is completely web-based so both employees and HR administrators can access the software from anywhere with no need to install special software.
  • Sage People is based on the Salesforce.com platform so it has a robust API which is well documented and easy to integrate with other systems.
  • Sage People can integrate with almost any payroll system using their "Payflow" interface
  • Customer support is responsive and helpful.

Cons

ADP Vantage HCM

  • We just upgraded to Vantage Time Version 8. While we are glad that we do not have to worry about Java any more the look and feel is a little lack luster. The screen is boring and it can be hard to locate what you are looking for because nothing really stands out.
  • Since upgrading to Vantage Time Version 8 things have been moved around that we were not expecting so I think it would have been helpful to have that laid out during the implementation process.
  • The other item that I have personally had issues with is Employee Documents. This has given errors across our company so at any given moment you do not have access to obtain an EE's documents. This needs improvement.

Sage People

  • We found out-of-the-box configuration and fields for employees and salary to be lacking and had to do extensive customization especially for salary.
  • Basic salary functionality like uniform pay grades and automatic calculations based on FTE are lacking. This makes simple things like COLA adjustments to be a chore.
  • It is very easy to customize, which is a "Pro", but also means that you might have to do quite a bit of customization to get it to do what you'd like.
  • The employee Self-serve ("WX") interface can be a bit slow at times.

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.

Diane Hartley profile photo

Sage People

We moved to Sage People from a 20+-year-old internally developed HR software. We also evaluated other HR software such as Kronos, SAP, and BambooHR. Ultimately, we chose Sage because of the extensive support they provided to us and the ability to customize to fit our organization's needs. We loved the fact that they were completely cloud-based and built on a reputable platform (Salesforce).

Return on Investment

ADP Vantage HCM

  • Our organization has experienced a more efficient and faster recruiting process through ADPRM and ADP Vantage HCM.
  • The analytics and robust reporting tools are user friendly and allow non-technical users to gain data insights to provide better forecasting and metrics to the business.

Sage People

  • Sage People has helped us to standardize our HR processes across a complex multinational environment. Overall, this has saved us time and resources
  • Licensing can be expensive especially for HR administrator licenses, and non-profit pricing isn't as good as we would hope. However, in the long run, costs are saved because there is no need for internal infrastructures such as servers or client applications
  • Integration with multiple payroll providers saves time and money and reduces the chance for errors.
