ADP Vantage HCM

It seems well suited for Time Card and Payroll.

Works well for smaller early stage companies because of instant access to better benefits and online access from day one. It makes it easy to onboard a new employee. I usually work with companies that have fewer than 50 employees so I cannot speak to the use case for larger companies.

Pros

  • Friendly user interface and easy on the eyes. Users utilize multiple functions through menus much like a standard website. My company also uses SAP, which can be somewhat difficult for those who are not technically proficient.
  • Easy to update settings and workflow.
  • Implementation team was helpful and friendly.

  • Customer Support is my number one priority. When I need answers, I need answers. TriNet provides me with a support team that are not only knowledgeable and respond in a timely manner, but are fun to work with and are dedicated to making my life easier.
  • TriNet offers support with compliance to make sure that I am up to date with all the laws and regulations. Since we have employees located all over the country, they make it easy for me to review the information I need to make sure I am in compliance with all of the state laws.
  • Onboarding and payroll administration are a snap to complete. TriNet's on-line system is easy to use and offers a full array of resources for employees, managers and HR. Their online benefits enrollment process, whether it be new hire or open enrollment, is streamlined and easy for employees to change benefit information without having to go through HR. All of this frees up my time to spend on other responsibilities.
  • TriNet's Reports module is extensive and hits all my needs, all our accounting departments needs and all our management teams needs. From birthday lists to 401k info to job costing to - take it from me its comprehensive. And if I can't find exactly what I need, I can develop my own report.

Cons

  • When ADP releases updates, it sometimes causes issues with our current setup - mainly in terms of security access profiles. If they add a new feature or update an old one, sometimes those profiles will default to having access, which can cause a problem in terms of segregation of duties.
  • The initial support we received when we first went live from a payroll perspective was not the best. Our implementation team rolled off and we were informed that a new group would support us. Unfortunately, they did not know our entire set up, so they were, at times, as lost as we were. (This has improved over the last year.)

  • My only complaint at all about TriNet is that I think their web portal could be more user-friendly but I even feel as if they've been trying to address that consideration in the past couple of years.

I have no renewal decision power, but it seems that the system does what it is meant to do for the 750 employees that it supports.

Usability

ADP Vantage HCM5.2
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

I'm assuming this question is specifically targeting TriNet's website/platform. I view TriNet as a complete package including customer service support, etc.
Overall, the platform allows me to complete my tasks, however, there are times where I spend more time that I would have liked searching for how to access time off approvals, etc. Again, I would encourage a fully functional website product before release.

1. When we have problems that cannot be solved through the on-line portal, our assigned TriNet representative has always been able to get the job done expeditiously and thoroughly. 2. Our TriNet representative was able to facilitate the payroll and benefits transfer of all employees without employee interruptions where we merged one portfolio company into another

Online Training

ADP Vantage HCM5.9
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

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.

  • TriNet has made our payroll and benefit administration processes more efficient.
