ADP Workforce Now

Well-suited for companies with 10 or more employees. The more employees the more efficient ADP is for all aspects. Less appropriate for small companies where payroll and reporting is very manageable.

Great partner for administering our annual engagement survey. You can set up automated reminders for users who have not filled out the survey over a period of time. They also offer a lot of benchmark data and resources to really understand what your organization's results mean and how to go about picking the most critical pieces of information that need attention and can have the greatest impact on the organization. If you choose not to use their survey templates or add your own questions to a survey, you may not be able to get any external benchmark data, as it all depends on how relevant your own questions are to the questions used by others in their shared templates.

Pros

ADP Workforce Now

  • The reporting in ADP is second to none. The ease of creating ad-hoc reports is far superior to any other system I have used. As an added bonus the canned reports that come standard with ADP, are usually more than enough for any company.
  • The customer service is amazing. Anytime I am experiencing issues I can call them up and expect an immediate resolution. They have an excellent ticketing system that allows them and myself to track communications and look up prior resolutions for future reference.
  • Tax Payments and Reporting are a life saver. I can always rest assured that my deposits are accurate and made on time. If I get any tax notices in the mail I can simply forward them to ADP and I do not have to worry about them again.

  • Provides survey templates with benchmark data from all other users, grouped by industry and company size.
  • Very user-friendly analytics of the post-survey results- easy to apply filers, graphs, charts, heat maps, great visuals. The data and charts are also very easy to extract in several different formats such as Excel, PDF, and CSV.
  • Extremely easy to share results with leaders/managers, apply security permissions for only parts of the data if you don't want to share full company results.
  • They also have a library with very helpful/guided PowerPoint and storytelling templates for preparing a high-level overview of results and presentations.

Cons

ADP Workforce Now

  • The time and attendance portion could be more robust. If you have employees with multiple pay rates, pay types, and pay additions this may be a task to setup. My current company is driven by cost numbers and I we had to partner with another company that is another part of ADP called IDI in order to make things work.
  • Sometimes when working with records it is difficult to manipulate historical data. I guess maybe this is a good and bad thing because you don't want it to be easy for people to manipulate data, but if terminating an employee was a mistake I would like to easily be able to delete that record instead of rehiring.
  • The accrual setup is one of the biggest issues I have had with ADP. From the setup to execution this is a project that requires constant review even after the process has been completed.

  • They recently launched a text analytics feature but I think it still needs some work. I don't find the attributes of sentiment to comments to make complete sense. Text analytics are also not yet available for export so it makes it very difficult to share with others in presentations and reports outside of the system.
  • Currently they don't have the ability to set an automated file with and connect with an HRIS (at least not with Ultimate) so every time you want to refresh your users you have to upload a new file feed manually (which is pretty simple, it is just impossible to set the refresh on autopilot).

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

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 Now

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.

Alternatives Considered

ADP Workforce Now

Our company used ADP prior to Workforce Now. We tried PayChex for one year 11 years ago, however did not like the functionality and time required to process a payroll. We returned to ADP, then tried Paylocity...that lasted one small payroll, as our payroll clerk was extremely dissatisfied with the product. I was on the telephone with our ADP representative asking what ADP could do to help us remedy our error in moving to paylocity. ADP was great, they explained the ADP Workforce Now product. Helped us return to ADP in time to do a full payroll the following week, and helped to collect the information from Paylocity in time to do the first quarter report in a timely manner. This was a difficult task as Paylocity was less than forthcoming with the reports we needed to provide. The Paylocity support team finally admitted they could not do the what they claimed in the demo. Waste of time and a lot of money. ADP Workforce Now has proven to us they will be there when we need them.

Return on Investment

ADP Workforce Now

  • It's given me a lot more time for other things. Payroll takes significantly less time than it used to, managing requisitions is a smooth process so hiring is more transparent and takes less time, and employees are able to view their own information and make changes. In general, I have gotten several hours back a week just from using ADP, which allows me to focus on our strategic goals.

  • It has helped us communicate initiative and dig in to potential issues.
  • Culture Amp has provided meaningful feedback to our managers and company as a whole.
  • Administering the survey is very easy and we get 100% participation on a regular basis.
