ADP Vantage HCM

If your company has only one way of paying hourly or salaried employees then the payroll module may work well.

Workday HCM

This is a perfect solution for a large workforce with multiple moving departments. This allows for people to have access essentially 24/7 to some of their most commonly asked questions. The ability to track vacation time off, sick time, leave (parental/military/medical), and personal days is seamless. Another function our employees seem to like is the ability to track all of their work history in one place. There is a consistent timeline that lets them see where they have been and how they have progressed. With the addition of our leadership development schedule, it becomes very evident what their next step is

Pros

  • The best thing about having all the product offerings associated with ADP Vantage HCM is being able to offer a "one-stop shop" to our HR practitioners, managers, and employees.
  • The convenience of ADP Talent Management and ADP Recruiting Management's full integration with Vantage allows us to create more efficient performance, compensation, and recruiting programs and procedures.
  • The user interface.
Jacqueline Raymond profile photo
  • The user experience is superior to all others. It is built like all the consumer tools out there, so employees are familiar with the icons and navigation
  • Finally a solution that really has reporting that is already built in. There is no need to buy a data warehouse or anything
  • Configuring really is simple. you dont need to hire technical people to learn how to configure business processes
Carlino Cecilio profile photo

Cons

  • Make the individual parts of the product work independently.
Maria Vladova profile photo
  • They can improve their performance solutions. performance reviews are done in a very traditional fashion and dont offer some of the new functionality
  • The goals module is limited and needs to have more flexibility to be able to align goals and cascade them down the organization

It is work to make one system the source of truth for our data, but now that it is done, there is less work involved in staying on this path. This means for us that maintaining and/or implementing new modules like performance, finance, talent, etc. is simple. It's a no-brainer

It is very intuitive to end-users and easy to navigate. There are multiple ways to navigate for anything you try and do. Information is very clear and presented in logical format. I like the way they group information, especially worker history data. Everyone seems to love the reporting

Workday is okay - it looks nice on the outside, but they still have some bugs to deal with in the software so that it is more user-friendly and functioning for customers.

Overall it works very well, except the occasional glitching which causes delays in processing.

From my perspective, the system runs like a well oiled machine and I have not had any issues with customers complaining about speed. If a report is taking long to run, the report can run in the background and you can go about your business. For larger enterprises, there is additional space and machines to process the application in what Workday refers to it as Extended Configuration Tenant

Workday is still learning about the needs of higher education. I have seen rapid improvement in support and knowledge over the last year so am confident this will continue to improve. Overall however, I have found the Support Team to be extremely responsive and Workday offers the advantage of having support across several timezones so that we never wait more than a few hours for a response.

The instructors are knowledgeable, the ability to do hands-on exercise throughout are invaluable. The materials are useful reference after training is over. However, for basic functionality the system is pretty easy to pick up and there are plenty of free classes and tools so that only the system support and implementation team really need to take formal Workday training.

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.

I was not here at the time of implementation, but was involved in the stabilization post implementation and cleanup. Because Georgetown was the first higher education institution it was not the smoothest implementation however this is mitigated by several factors:1. Relative immaturity in the higher ed space2. Our own lack of expertise and experience with the system3. Challenges in terms of Workday Resources. Because the community is small, there is a significant challenge in getting dedicated resources to support implementations

Alternatives Considered

Currently using ADP PayForce. ADP is upgrading PayForce to Vantage. We have not looked at other products.

I came to CMU after they had selected Workday. I think the biggest reason why Workday was selected, was because the business could invest in one system to bring their Payroll, HR, and Benefits activities together, where those had been 3 separate systems in the past.

Workday has released Financials and is continuing to develop it's Human Capital Management footprint with the addition of Workday Recruiting. I think customers will find that is easy to add on additional functionality in the system.Workday does make it easy for customers to make changes without relying on IT resources. The Business Process framework is a visual tool that allows functional resources to make changes and see the flow of the transaction

Return on Investment

  • Our payroll process is so streamlined now, with so many less coding errors because it is entered in the field and approved by field managers.
  • We are paperless now, no more overnighting checks to the field.
  • And employees are much happier not having to cash checks.
Jennifer Halvorson profile photo
  • In my opinion the key benefit is that managers have better information - actionable, real time data at their finger tips. They don’t have to ask people for information.
  • When I talk to others about deploying Workday – in most cases, they assume they will reduce headcount for systems administration. In fact you will need to increase. Each area requires expertise knowledge. Since everything is changing so fast, you need people who are focused in each area. However, you need a different level (lower level) of expertise so that's less pricey.
