ADP Vantage HCM

I have used many payroll services and software. ADP Vantage is definitely the most advanced and intuitive product that I have used. We have a decentralized payroll, and it works great however I understand most clients do all the payroll at one location, so it suits either way. I not only recommend it for the exceptional product but also for the customer service that ADP provides.

SAP Core HR and Payroll

SAP HR can be well suited for global companies with operations in multiple countries. The Payroll module needs to be limited to one instance per country, otherwise trying to maintain multiple countries on the same instance is too complicated.I would not recommend using SAP HR and Payroll for smaller companies because the total cost of ownership and the lack of flexibility will make it unfeasible. There are many cloud-based options now a days available that would fit better for this type of scenario.

Pros

  • It does a very thorough job of showing history of applicants interaction with job applications in an orderly format.
  • It can, in theory, be a more cost-effective solution for managing multiple software applications all on one platform.
  • Customization options for adding and subtracting steps in the recruiting process and pipeline are endless.

  • SAP HR is a mature system that provides robust support to global companies, with employees in multiple countries.
  • Because SAP HR is used by many global companies and has a large market share, developers and consultants are usually available.
  • Also, because SAP HR and Payroll have been used for long time, many vendors and providers will be familiar with the system and have pre-defined system interfaces to exchange information.

Cons

  • Batch output reports are not user friendly and efficient. They are not easy to read or use for audit purposes.
  • Not being able to find employees by the whole SSN makes it difficult in times that is your only known source of data for the employee.
  • The lack of use of effective dates makes it very difficult to report on and prepare audit documentation for clients.
  • There are bugs still in this system that seem to be only brought up by the client and the action to fix or make right is not taken with the critical needs of the clients.

  • The SAP HR unser interface is not intuitive and requires significant training and experience to master. A web-based, simple and intuitive UI will mitigate this issue.
  • In general running reports and extracting information from SAP HR and Payroll is complex and time consuming. Since the reporting tools are limited and very basic, one ends up extracting raw data to be manipulated in standard tools like MS Excel.
  • The standard SAP HR and Payroll system integration tools are inefficient and ineffective; very often they fail to transfer small amounts of data requiring constant verification and rework of data transfers.

Usability

Based on 5 answers
when required to move from PayForce to Vantage we expected to have greater functionality and reporting - did not expect to be forced to move to a product that was not ready, provided less functionality, required more dependence on ADP Service Rep for day to day function and cost more - was a big swing and a miss for ADP

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

PayForce did everything we needed with less dependence on ADP and at lower cost - Vantage cost more, delivers less and makes us more dependent on ADP - if we had an option we would have stayed on that platform.
Shelly Guilmette profile photo
We use SAP HR and Payroll because in our company it is the corporate mandate. However, based on our regional/business unit requirements and strategic plans other system would provide a better fit. However, just like in many large global corporations these type of decisions are made at the corporate level, many times giving priority to technology standardization instead of business priorities.

Return on Investment

  • So far this product is not what we were looking for in a product. We had one that worked well and worked for us. Being put on a product that is not fully functioning for what we need and being told that it basically is what it is and we need to learn to deal with the new product is not the best customer experience. I am hoping that through enhancements that this product lives up to promise that was made when we were told we were moving to it.

  • SAP HR is suited for large companies with a sufficient budget. Small budgets will not be able to cover the expensive licensing, technical personnel and consultants required of an SAP installation.
  • In regards to the total cost of ownership, my ROI experience has been that by replacing SAP HR modules with cloud solutions we have been able to reduce the cost up to 60% while modernizing our systems and improving the employee experience.
  • I would encourage decision makers to look for cloud-based alternatives with a robust system integration, before believing that supporting every area of HR with a single SAP installation is a good long-term strategy. Having SAP HR as the core integrated to best-in-class cloud-based systems is a very valid and effective system strategy.
