ADP Workforce Now

Well-suited for companies with 10 or more employees. The more employees the more efficient ADP is for all aspects. Less appropriate for small companies where payroll and reporting is very manageable.

If you are handling a large client list, and are selling services, it is dead easy. If you are managing/selling a physical inventory, it seems like it has great options to do that quite well (disclaimer, I do not use those functions, but I have paid attention as that functionality was built into the software). If you want to link your bank account to a bookkeeping platform, this is not the software for you (at least so far).

Pros

  • Benefits enrollment - saves so much time by having the benefits enrollment online. The benefits cost flow directly to payroll so there is no [chance] for error by entering an incorrect amount. Carrier connections flow the info to our insurance company - no paper forms
  • Keeps us informed on any changes involving ACA, taxes or other federal regulations. Subscribe to Eye on Washington and you are always up to date on current happenings in Washington.
  • Ability to handle all of our state and local taxes. We have 9 states and many locals.

  • AccountEdge allows us to control our services provided to in the steps from quote complete through invoice delivery.
  • AccountEdge seamlessly manages our customer base from individuals through to multi-employee and department businesses.
  • Order creation is simple and easy to understand and deploy

Cons

  • Managers would like a link to their Outlook calendar for all of their reports' vacation time. Currently, the employee will get a link to add to their personal Outlook just not the managers.
  • Would like to see real time changes when updating any of the configurations pages. It is a pain to have to log off and log back on to see how the changes look.
Karen Webb profile photo
  • Transition between yearly version updates/upgrades could be smoother.
  • Multi-user deployment and use can frequently cause the program/app to crash or continue to display logged out users as logged-in.

It's in. It works. The cost compared favorably to the competition. I cannot imagine there would be reason to switch at this point.

Without a doubt, when you need to do accounting use the program that will get the job done in the least amount of time with the least amount of errors. Once you are using a program that works you stay with it year after year and you will find yourself even excited about the updates

Usability

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.

AccountEdge Pro & Basic is laid out in easy to use centers which compartmentalize a users needs based on departments. Along with that one can set up recurring transactions for things that repeat daily through annually and anything in between. You can set a preference for automatic posting or a user specific reminder to post the action

One of the finer advantages of desktop software, it's always available. AccountEdge doesn't suffer from outages or sluggish internet like web based applications do. It's always there when you power on your device!

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!

Rarely do we get support due to it costing money. Sell us on a Monthly service, bump up your CRM and Marketing and AccountEdge could easily be getting $2k/ month from us.

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

Prior to our switch to ADP in 2009, we used Abra and had to manually enter timecards and record time. The flow in ADP Workforce Now is wonderful!

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.
Dixon Pettengill profile photo
  • AccountEdge is useful for running reports for submitting our Tax Returns on an Annual basis. To this end, it saves me time.
  • It is not useful for running reports on the analysis of the state of the company. In general, I find using Excel to be more useful, but probably more time consuming than it would be if I were able to run those reports in a comprehensive Accounting System.
