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.

SumTotal Learn

It works well for just uploading SCORM compliant courses. We don't use it for managing ILT courses as it was complicated when we last tried it. We also do not sell courses, but I don't think that it's capable of doing that

Pros

  • ADP Vantage is great because all the data is in one location, there is no exporting or importing employee data. For employees this is also a benefit as it's one place to go for everything they need, to record time, update tax withholding, setup direct deposit, update contact information etc.
  • I absolutely love the report writing, especially the new tools that ADP has introduced such as the "Field Grabber". It makes it so easy to create and run a quick report as needed. Even our least experienced users have commented how easy it has become to use reporting in ADP.
  • The New User Experience, (MyADP) although is new and not yet completely rolled, out will be a great benefit for employees and for managers who have 5 or less direct reports. The design is so user friendly where there are no instructions needed.
  • Its so easy to manage the user access, and make changes as you need it. The security gives you lots of flexibility. Just today I had a Practitioner who was going to take over the responsibility of a second location's payroll. To give her the correct access to the second location took less than 2 minutes to set up and apply to her profile.

  • SumTotal has a very user friendly design, making it easy for non-programmers to configure their LMS interface, customize various environments for different groups, and to integrate numerous external web applications through iFraming, such as social media or news feeds. I was able to configure a custom environment for several different clients, making it feel like their own LMS, such as a custom color scheme and logos, custom widgets (which are section of any page), news feeds, training messages, and custom learning plans.

Cons

  • The workflow feature of the product is not quite as robust as one would like.
  • The security setup for the product does not retain history that the client can report on, which makes auditing a bit of a challenge.
  • The policy manager does not allow for true electronic signatures and does not meet legal requirements for compliance purposes.

  • SumTotal can not yet support media-rich mobile learning. Our eLearning design use instructional video, text, interactions, pop-ups with course resources and other information, etc... The SumTotal mobile capability right now does not support our design; ie our pop-ups won't pop-up, even those that simply open a PDF or document, and non of the hyperlinks will work.

We have been with SumTotal for 4 years, and will renew for a 5th. We like to product and we have not yet grown to a size where a custom "homegrown" LMS is necessary. The only reason we would leave SumTotal would be if the ROI is no longer positive and we can make more profit by creating our own LMS and hosting internally

I do not find SumTotal to be intuitive. I feel we need to adjust our needs to meet the functionality available in the tool.

Online Training

Based on 3 answers
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

There is good and bad with any software that you choose. In the selection process, our organization had narrowed it down to SuccessFactors or ADP Vantage. Both had their strengths. In the past, I've used JDE, SAP, and Optimum. Most of my experience is with JDE. Honestly, I could give you pros and cons with each one of them

SuccessFactors is more user friendly, however their service is less than stellar. SumTotal was chosen because of price and customer service.

Return on Investment

  • There was a major decrease in terms of paper processes.
  • Items that require an approval are now done through ADP Vantage (such as a pay change or promotion). This prevents a form from sitting on a manager's desk for days until they can physically sign it. Approvers can review and approve a transaction from anywhere that they have internet access.
  • HR no longer has to build organizational charts through Vizio - ADP Vantage provides organizational charts.

  • We don't measure ROI with Maestro, but mostly provide it as a service/benefit to our network.
  • Based on owner feedback, we know that it helps them manage their time so that the new employee can take their required courses and then put that new knowledge to work. This allows for owners/managers to spend their time on other things and focus on the most critical issues with their new employees.
