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.

Unless PeopleStrategy has made improvements to the quality of support they give their users as well as the system they support there is no situation in which I would ever recommend them to another HR professional. I'd prefer to save them the headache and hassle that I wish someone had provided us.

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
  • It was easy to navigate
  • Easy to read
  • Document upload was very easy and quick
  • User Access was really easy to manager and reset passwords.

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.

  • The administrator support was very inadequate. There was no urgency in the responses we received and they were generally very unhelpful.
  • The customization for our company was lacking. There was no way to make it appealing to view.
  • The reporting tool was very poorly designed. When running reports the only option that worked sucessfully was to run a generic all encompassing people report and pair it down in excel based on the data you were trying to extract.
  • No user information was provided when changes were made to specific fields in the HRIS side so when one person changed something there was no way to identify later who the change was initiated by. This made it very difficult to be able to identify quality issues.

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 Now6.2
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

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 Now7.2
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

The previous system I used was an old version of PeopleSoft that was so far past needing to be updated that we were not able to make the modifications that we needed. It's not really a fair comparisson because the systems are so dramatically different. ADP has an all in one opportuntiy where there was only the HR portion in PeopleSoft. We did not have any recruiting or payroll opportunties in the system. When it's available, I highly suggest you go after it and have it all in one
Nicole Rieger profile photo
ADP and Oracle are systems I have used and the GUI of Oracle even as antiquated as it is was vastly more efficient to work with than the people as well as system that PeopleStrategy claimed to be supporting. I didn't have any part in the selection of this system as it was in place before I was part of the team. We promptly began looking into all in one systems so that we could convert to a better experience for us as administrators and for the employees and their use. We ulitmatelt converted to ADP this year and even though the process was not as seemless as promised I would still take this process over using PeopleStrategy any time.

Return on Investment

  • By switching from ADP WFN to a smaller payroll provider (with the same capabilities as we were using with ADP), we saved 40%.
Sarah Frindt profile photo
  • Duplicate work had to be done in order to make sure data had been saved
  • Third party linking for payroll was inadequate and sometimes didn't transmit accurate information up to and including pay changes, address changes, W4 updates, etc.
  • The process for benefits annual enrollment took 6 months to prepare outside of the normal negotiations that occur with our vendors. After the implementation had been done the reporting we had to create was inaccurate which required us to double check everyone. It was time consuming and very counter productive.
