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.

I truly believe you get out of Saba what you put into it. Have a plan and they will help you make it happen. They were great providing best practice advice when we needed it and helping us get buy-in for features along the way.

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.

  • Notifications
  • Automated Course Assignments
  • Workspaces

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.

  • Changing recurring course expiration dates
  • Transitioning regular courses to recurring courses
  • Not enough customization of HTML

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

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 Now7.3
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 Now7.5
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.

Reporting should increase further levels of analytics.

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!
Karen Webb profile photo
I have used a lot of LMSs in the past and I think that Saba does a lot of good things that the others could not do effectively. Automated the assignment of courses is difficult but this has a lot to do with business rules and organizational structure. I think the Saba's UI is more modern in its design and is a lot more user-friendly to administer than the other products listed.

Return on Investment

  • ADP Workforce Now is a working partner. Utilizing the product has saved time and money for our accounting department.
  • The timekeeping program allows us to utilize department and job tracking.
  • The custom reporting options and having all of the employee related functions in one program, helps to generate information and reports that used to take hours to pull together.

  • Automated course assignments are a positive
  • Ability to integrate with most content services is a positive
  • Inflexible functionality such as changing the due dates on a recurring course is a negative
