Likelihood to Recommend

ADP Vantage HCM

ADP Vantage HCM is well suited for a variety of industries. While the product is delivered with a great solution for office employees, it is configurable to accommodate unique working situations and special pay items for operations employees.

Zenefits

Zenefits is great for new businesses and smaller teams that need a quick platform to start recording their employees documents and generating reports, payroll and time worked. It is easy to use for a small HR team and helps keep everything in compliance. Larger companies (100 employees or more) might take too much small micromanaging to utilize this system on a regular basis

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.

  • Zenefits keeps it simple, associates don't dread logging in because the dashboard layout is a collection of apps , you click the icon for what you need.
  • Zenefits has a chat based Help Desk so you can get answers to questions immediately.
  • Zenefits offers a great resource for administrators call Club Zen. Club Zen features HR related articles and information to supplement continuing eduction for our people experts.

Cons

  • Customer service - solving issues in a timely manner
  • More explaining why the problems actually happen so we can avoid future issues
  • Benefit quirks during open enrollment and the small issues that happen

  • It would be great if Zenefits talked to our 401k provider. The one we use isn't currently supported.
  • Implementation at times felt repetitive, but we were integrating a lot of moving parts.

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 HCM5.3
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 can see room for improvement, particularly in seamless ticket transition from a chat interface to a phone call to email support, but all three options works.

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

We were previously on ADP but the portal was phasing out. We decided to stay with ADP because we thought it would be the easiest transition. It was hard and we are still working on this 4 years later. At this time we are not changing systems however we are not apposed to this.

The only direct competitor for Zenefits I looked at was ADP Resource and found that Zenefits was easier to start with and more cost-effective for our needs.

Return on Investment

  • negative -it slows our processing due to limitations and issues
  • negative - makes us more reliant on our service rep which slows us down (we used to be able to make changes like adding departments on our own - now our rep has to do this and other maintenance for us)
  • negative - we now have to pay for ADP to process adjustments for us instead of being able to use adjustments on our own
Shelly Guilmette profile photo
  • Positive--saves us time by automating emails and processes
  • Positive--easy for employees to transparently view their benefits
  • Negative--our PTO is always messed up without fail every year
  • Positive--easy enough to add new fields into the system to track pertinent data and report on it
