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.

Vista

Vista has been great for our business as we expand and have to add in other company information but yet still be able to provide the tailored experience for the new company. I previously worked in ADP and Paylocity, having the ability to get in on the back end and make changes is a big plus

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.

  • Vista allows us to have different "Distribution" areas within each FEIN. These distribution types sort and subtotal by type and then provide a grand total for the FEIN. We can organize more efficiently and have subtotals by distribution available to management in a very timely manner.
  • Navigating through Vista is extremely intuitive. You don't have to memorize screen names, labels or numbers to find information.
  • The standard report process quickly and can be save in excel for sorting and analysis.

Cons

  • There is currently a bug or defect with the calendar popup and it requires a duplicated click to request off.
  • The monthly time off calendar can be improved visually. Need an easier way to see a big picture for the employee.

  • We do not utilize the performance appraisal process in Vista because our process requires our employees to have individual goals that are tracked and measured in addition to the traditional competencies.
  • We have a very involved bonus calculation process which Vista is not able to support
  • We currently use another product for Time and Attendance because we've been with that system well before Vista added it to their functionality.

I feel so invested in Vista HRMS that I don't really want to try other options. I know we as an organization are not using this product to it's full potential and that is just due to us lacking the resources to be able to invest the time into breaking it apart and making it work to the best ability for us. The system works great as is, but there are a lot of implementations we can put into place to help us out even more. For example, we would love to start using Workflow to create more efficiencies. I personally have a very good relationship with our hosted vendor who supports Vista HRMS and can help me with any issues and concerns, this is a big part of the reason that I would renew with this product and continue to be an advocate for Vista HRMS.

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

They are quick to respond to support requests. Often they are able to address the issue without escalation. The support staff are extremely knowledgeable and willing to recruit other staff to help troubleshoot a problem. They frequently do screen sharing sessions to actually see the behavior we experience so they can better understand the problem and get it resolved. Without an exception, all of the support staff are extremely pleasant and enjoyable to be around. They truly value their customers and our success and they try to make it fun to interact with them. Support calls do not incur a support fee either. All support, excluding consulting services, is included in our annual support.

Online Training

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.

Ask lots of questions, ensure you fully understand the functionality (particularly history records) and train, train, train the users for correct and complete utilization of the system.

Alternatives Considered

ADP Vantage HCM crushes our previous product, Tock.
No photo available
We converted from Lawson/Infor's HRMS solution. This was becoming increasing difficult to maintain and the annual maintenance costs were many times higher than PDS. We evaluated Workday, Ultimate, ADP and several other software solutions during our evaluation phase. Workday was much more complicated than we needed. Ultimate offered a nice alternative but we did not like the fact that there are no options to modify the system to meet your needs. You changed your business to fit into their system. There was nothing we liked about ADP. One of the things we liked most about Vista (PDS) was that they are a small company that specializes in HRMS. Lawson/Infor is an ERP solution that happens to have a HRMS component. Workday and Ultimate our huge companies that seem to cater to bigger corporations. We feel that we are an important customer to PDS and that they actually listen to our suggestions. The support we have gotten from them is so much better than what we were receiving from Lawson.

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 do not need to source out payroll to a 3rd party provider such as Ceridian. It is done efficiently and accurately in house.
  • We don't need a dedicated LMS or H&S tracking tool. Vista's functionality suits our needs and data is consolidated in one place.
