ADP Workforce Now

For a small employer, with very little turnover and few benefit options, ADP may be too costly for the benefit. There are many affordable payroll providers available for small organizations.For large employers with many benefits options, employees in multiple locations, multiple tax jurisdictions and varied pay types (salary, hourly, commission, etc), ADP is ideal. The extended customer service hours, extensive resources for international pay, and capability for multi state taxation is crucial for an international employer.

As a company that has nearly doubled in size in less than a year we've really had to make a conscious effort to over communicate and be transparent about or work to both stay focused and not duplicate work. BetterWorks has worked really well for us to be able to share progress, celebrate wins, stay focused, and collaborate across departments to best leverage our unique skills to achieve our top company goals. I'm not sure this kind of platform would have been necessary a year ago when we were much smaller (fewer than 50 people) but now that we're crossing 100 team members it's been...I'd say vital to keeping us on track.

Pros

  • Benefits enrollment - saves so much time by having the benefits enrollment online. The benefits cost flow directly to payroll so there is no [chance] for error by entering an incorrect amount. Carrier connections flow the info to our insurance company - no paper forms
  • Keeps us informed on any changes involving ACA, taxes or other federal regulations. Subscribe to Eye on Washington and you are always up to date on current happenings in Washington.
  • Ability to handle all of our state and local taxes. We have 9 states and many locals.

  • Neat and easy to understand
  • Easy to sort by different critera
  • Shows how goals roll up in a tree/chart

Cons

  • There are often long waits for a customer service representative.
  • We had some employees that had difficulty creating a profile - but it was resolved quickly on the back end.
  • When I get a timecard exception notice, it would be nice to have details (employee name, date of exception) readily available within the notification.

  • It's sometimes hard to see ONLY your milestones and goals
  • Having more default units of measure might be nice (or being able to save your own custom ones)
  • Native integrations with software (like HubSpot) would be great

We're looking into other vendors for cost savings. Sometimes it's frustrating to contact the general ledger deparment.

We've been using it for going on four quarters now and it's become part of how our team plans our work for the quarter, holds ourselves accountable, and decides who is doing what work and why. Without it we'd certainly have to replace it with something else - plus it's so nice to see the other departments and top company goals so easily.

Again, because I find the reporting features to still be a bit difficult to utilize.

Overall the platform is clean and easy to use. It's quick to learn and not unnecessarily complex. While a few specific filtering features can be wonky it's nice that it's simple and clean. There are a lot of icons where words may be more appropriate in the navigation but otherwise the platform is easy to use and quick to hop into and check in.

Support

ADP has gone back to the designated "team support" module for clients on the newer versions of WFN, and the introduction of "The Bridge" has just added additional resources for problem resolution. It is a blog of current users who can share ideas/solutions in real time. And open case numbers are relatively east to track, and will allow the clients to view status of specific cases in the near future. We currently have no open items!

The instructions from the recruiting agency on how to use the system was pretty straightforward. It provided step-by-step procedures on where you would need to log in your hours as well as what you would need to highlight (i.e. regular, overtime, etc.) detailing the type of hours that were worked overall. The handout also provided some pictures of the application

Implementation

ADP Workforce Now7.2
Based on 8 answers
Either assign more than one specialist to the implementation process, or assign less clients to the implementation specialist. The process requires attention to detail and the ability to test and re-test as well as verify the information. It also requires a lot of back and forth between the client ant the implementation specialist, so they need to be readily available during the whole implementation process.

I haven't seen many other platforms but I've really enjoyed working in BetterWorks from day one. My team was one of the first at our company to jump in and set goals and milestones and it's been easy to use and intuitive. There wasn't much of a learning curve with the platform itself - simply with goal setting in general. It would be nice though if there were some tips on setting good goals in the platform.

Return on Investment

  • We are consultants for companies that have chosen WFN so ROI is not relevant for us but I believe it is good return if implemented properly
Les Meyer profile photo
  • We've been able to cut down on duplicate work because we're all aware of what everyone is working on.
  • We can best leverage everyone's skills by collaborating to achieve top company goals.
  • With BetterWorks our top company goals are always front of mind and driving our everyday work keeping us focused.
