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.

Our agency has a number of federal and private grants tied to personnel costs and allocations. DATIS e3 is extraordinary at allowing the end user to slice information as needed for complex reporting.

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.

Cons

  • Reporting can be somewhat challenging. You're able to build your reports and they've done a good job of streamlining the process but sometimes finding the correct code for reporting can be challenging. However, they have a team that builds custom reports for you so that's a small complaint.

  • Supervision documentation is difficult to use if the supervisor doesn’t adhere to the rigid schedule
  • Applicant site doesn’t automatically integrate with outside recruitment tools, so tracking of recruitment data is complicated.
  • DATIS has struggled with customer service support unless you have a dedicated contact

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

When making the choice to pursue WFN, I courted four companies. All had bells and whistles comparable to WFN, some even had sexier features, but none had the same business longevity as ADP. I entered this agreement hesitantly due to ADP's customer service reputation, but dedicated myself to learning the programming and exploring the system weekly. This undoubtedly helped me communicate my needs and accomplish our agency goals. I am SO HAPPY that we landed with WFN and would highly recommend it to colleagues. From payroll to benefits management, WFN is a win.

DATIS e3 is a different kind of system that may not be the solution for someone who is looking for an “off the shelf” solution. It is flexible and customizable to meet the specific needs of your organization. It is robust and thorough. They could benefit from spending money on a mobile solution.

Return on Investment

  • Improved workflow - our managers and staff now have all the information they need independently from contacting the HR Department. Your HR Department can now focus on strategic initiatives rather than pushing paper and hunting down signatures.
  • Decreased paperwork - information is collected, tracked, and stored within WFN. Say goodbye to those pesky HR data collection forms!
  • Happy employees - employees perform at their best when they are provided the tools and resources they need to act independently! This platform provides that exact avenue for success.
