ADP Workforce Now

ADP is well suited when you have a large workforce. We have over 450 employees and frequently have those who are hired and those who retire. It's such a great opportunity to give employees ownership of their own employee information.I think if you have a small business, it may be hard to justify the cost of ADP. However, the fact that they can take care of your payroll and taxes and such is pretty awesome.

We feel as the Saba LMS is great for anyone that has their own content creators or utilize 3rd parties for content. It can even function as an LRS, HRMS, LMS, as has other vast options. It is great for those that want to condense systems into one, however anyone that wants a stand-alone LMS, it can function as this, but works better with direct ties to HRIS.

Pros

  • Responding to issues through customer service. For example, having a custom report made, having pay codes adjusted or changed.
  • Payroll - the payroll process is smooth and there are graphs to analyze the current payroll cycle and it can be compared to prior payrolls. Great reporting from payroll as well.

  • Prescriptive Rules allow us to assign training based on data parameters such as job titles and campus locations. Previously, these assignments were manually created and the result of hours of data analysis.
  • Saba's options allow us to provide self-assignment options based on responses to questions related to actual job functions. They also allow us to integrate with collaborative partners in other organizations.

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.
Tara Kelly profile photo
  • There are areas of the back-end that seem to be hold-overs from much earlier iterations. Included would be the configuration of notifications. Once created they work relatively seamlessly but configuring them correctly, testing them, and making changes can be a challenge.

We are continuing with ERP systems that include learning, performance, and succession with increased user/community training and US-based support.

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 Now6.7
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 Now7.4
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.

It's better in every way, I would never go back

Saba was extremely similar to Cornerstone, but we decided to go with Saba because of the cost of implementation and the integration with job competencies.

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".
Kristie LaMar profile photo
  • The positive impact Saba has had on our overall business objectives are nearly beyond measure. This was our first learning management system and it has improved the efficiency of delivery, made tracking possible, and helped to unify and standardize organizational learning. Time spent in development has decreased on collaboration across sites is markedly increased.
