ADP Workforce Now

ADP is well suited for compliance with all legal regulations. I like that as soon as any new law comes out, ADP has taken ownership of the law and usually has already provided me with a solution or work around to make sure I am in compliance. The reliability of ADP is excellent and I have never had one bad dream of ADP not being around in the future.Workforce now is not well suited if you have a workforce that has multiple work rules, pay rates, pay types, and pay additions. You will more than likely have to keep a spreadsheet externally for these numbers and manually manipulate data.

Culture Amp

Culture Amp is a great fit for our company. Bigger companies would probably also see results from it because the more users that take the survey then this increases the ability to cut data by various things like, age, gender and tenure. Smaller companies may find it difficult to cut data, but may just want to use the platform to survey without sectioning employees out into groups.

Pros

  • 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.

  • I love that the survey is customizable and that additional questions can be added.
  • A really interesting feature is the benchmarking and the data used is from other companies within the same industry and vertical.
  • The fact that this is completely anonymous and that our team can feel confident to provide honest and real answers to the survey questions.

Cons

  • 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 already have a good assortment of templates to utilize but I would like to see more added on a regular basis.
  • The system is easy to use, and this does not relate to its functionality, but maybe more interesting design to the pages and experience as a whole.
  • It would be interesting to have the ability to share the survey results with the team and be able to add feedback comments as well.

The screens are very easy to understand and employees can easily navigate the system which makes it easier on me since I am not always having to answer questions.

Support

ADP Workforce Now6.1
Based on 14 answers
The payroll support is excellent, but the support on the technical side is lacking. The support for the portal is especially lacking. I think they need more training to be able to serve the customer more efficiently. I have had issues with employees not being able to log in even after resetting the password, and have had to call back a couple of different times to get results. Luckily I don't have issues that I need to call them about very often.

Online Training

ADP Workforce Now8.4
Based on 5 answers
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 Now7.1
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

I've also used ADP Pay Expert, and I really see Workforce Now as the logical continuation of Pay Expert. Workforce Now has better integration capabilities, streamlined processes, and fewer technical glitches. That said, if your company has a relatively simple payroll setup, Workforce Now doesn't really offer anything that Pay Expert doesn't.

Return on Investment

  • As a payroll manager and senior analyst, a quicker payroll processing has freed up substantial time for me to further develop financial metrics and focus on growing our company's profitability.
  • Far fewer payroll errors leads to improved employee moral and less time fixing said errors.

  • 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.
