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.

Khorus

Khorus just seemed like a waste of time and money. I'm not sure what it's well suited for, but there wasn't a way to objectively measure your tracking of goals. The visual was nice, but all the goals were so subjective and really not helpful. It's also quite possible that I had the wrong approach.

Pros

  • ADP Workforce Now is well ahead of their competitors in the payroll department. It is possible to track for job costing, and they are accurate. In the 15 years I have used ADP we have never seen a payroll error on their end.
  • ADP Workforce Now does a great job of timekeeping, and offers many options making it very flexible for meeting the needs of any type of company.
  • The most important strength ADP Workforce Now offers is the payroll related tax reporting and payment of payroll related taxes. There has never been a time we have had to worry about a report not being filed, or the funds not being submitted in a timely manner. If there has ever been a question, ADP has promptly taken care of the response and provided accurate documentation to all parties involved.

  • I honestly found Khorus to be good for keeping a log of my goals.
  • The software itself was easy to navigate
  • It wasn't super buggy

Cons

  • Custom reporting tool is not intuitive, particularly joins between different data, and the proprietary reporting tool is clunky and slow.
  • Effective dates are grouped within areas (e.g. employment profile) making an employee's historical record extremely difficult to discern. This bleeds into the reporting.
  • There is no test environment available for clients, nor is there one (I'm told) available for ADP support.
  • Service hold-times are long and the support is inadequate. Nearly every call for us ends with "we need to escalate this to development".
  • There is no ability to configure field dependencies (e.g. departments are only available within a specific business unit), and employee attributes are one-dimensional (not hierarchical).
  • The workflow tool for manager self-service is extremely limited and completely text-based. This, plus the lack of the test environment, makes deploying a reliable manager self-service system nearly impossible.

  • It seems like a glorified spreadsheet at times with a cleaner interface.
  • The objectivity of goal tracking was absent.
  • I don't see that Khorus serves certain teams very well, such as a customer support team. Our goals don't change very often and the ones that we do have are very tedious to log.

Usability

Based on 16 answers
Most functionality is intuitive, but there are some fields that are unique to other processes that need to be identified on screen so the user knows when a field is required to accomplish a specific goal.

Support

ADP Workforce Now6.1
Based on 14 answers
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!

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

ADP is by far the overall best solution. Reporting on the other programs don't measure up. The platforms are not as user friendly, and the interfaces aren't as eye pleasing
Anastasia Reeves profile photo
I much prefer Asana to Khorus. It's not only good at tracking but also a task manager. You can see that you are heading towards your goal in an objective approach, assuming that you laid out your project accordingly. Additionally, we use 15Five to get that extra insight as a manager to ask our team how they are doing and if they reached their goals, what's getting in the way, ect.

Return on Investment

  • Workforce Now has definitely improved our efficiency and consistency because we can pull reports into specific formats for importing into our databases. This means less hand-keying of simple things like address changes or new employee data, which makes our team more efficient and accurate.
  • Often our Accounting Team really struggles with understanding ADP's specific lingo, which can make it a challenge for our Payroll/Benefits Team and Accounting Team to interact. It's taken time to understand, for example, that "Business Unit" means "Account Code".

  • We ended up leaving Khorus and now use 15Five & Asana.
  • I think Khorus is a good idea but wasn't quite there in execution.
  • The initial creation of my goals was a good starting point for accomplishing them. I had to hash out the longterm solutions I was hoping to accomplish.
