Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Pros

  • Tax and governmental reporting. For a small business these reports are cumbersome, and time consuming
  • Direct deposit - no more printing out checks and distributing to all employees.
Joey Wilinski profile photo
  • We have employees in different states. They are very adept at handling all the different withholding requirements. I have experienced the same excellent service when there are special issues with visa withholding details.
  • Paycor has patiently addressed all my questions when I call in and in a very timely and professional manner. They know their business inside and out. And they are always patient and pleasant to speak with.
  • I love having Paycor do this payroll. When I was attempting to do it myself, I was getting constant notices from the state or IRS that this or that hadn't been done properly. I'm happy to report I no longer have that problem. The money spent on Paycor services is well worth it.

Cons

  • Some of the fields are not intuitive, meaning that when filling out things like phone #s and SSN's, the cursor does not automatically move to the next field once it is completed.
  • The performance management section doesn't fit our needs like we had hoped. We do not use a rating system for reviews and the ADP system is set up to be more advanced than what we are as a company. There's no way that we can change this so far and that's unfortunate.
  • Because ADP is such a huge program it runs a lot on cookies/cache. Because of that we have employees who really struggle with their passwords and the fact that we have them punch in and out on a public computer. Previous users and multiple tries with passwords seems to impact the next person who logs in.

  • Their reporting is not user friendly. There are no simple reports like Payroll history report for one employee. This is a standard report that is used frequently by employers. It is beyond me why they would not have this.
  • The time card report will not print the exact punches you see on the time card itself. We have a work group for lunch so that our employees can see that all their time is accounted for during the day but this will not print on time card report and we have been told it is not possible.
  • Benefit hours are not real time. They do not update until you process the payroll that a sick, or vacation day was taken in. This is very difficult for anyone trying to manage benefit hours.

Usability

ADP Workforce Now8.2
Based on 16 answers
Because most of the payroll piece is self explanatory. Some training may be required to learn the lingo, but they also have "help" screens available on each section. I use this function if I don't understand what is going on. The time and attendance piece is fairly easy for the employee to learn with very little training.

Support

ADP Workforce Now6.7

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.

Paycor representatives are always very helpful. The drawback is that I do not always hear back from them right away. I am still waiting on a message I left three days ago. Although the information is not urgent today, it is information that I need before the next payroll is processed.

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 Now7.4
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.

Make sure Paycor realizes the importance of having your GL set up and to you in a timely fashion. Ours was so delayed, I had to approach our salesperson from Paycor and get him to push the issue up several management levels.

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.

Return on Investment

  • It has reduced the time for me to process the payroll by half.
  • Reporting and any post audits can be done easily and early enough to catch any errors before the pay day which is definitely good for employee morale.
  • The ability for employees to make some changes to their payroll is a great time saver for Payroll and HR as well as for the employee.
  • Having all of our subs on ADP makes training the employee on the self service portal more efficient.

  • Keeping track of contributions for child support or garnishments is easy. Ease of use for tracking is wonderful.
