Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Great solution for a mid size company (less than 2000 employees) that is looking to keep HR and Payroll functionality in house.

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
  • Reporting - there are three levels of reporting - 1. Standard Reports 2. Query Tool - users can create very simple list with some filtering functionality 3. Crystal Reports - user can create very simple to complex report pulling data from multiple table, calculated fields, etc.
  • Benefit Tracking - benefit plans are setup utilizing rate tables therefore rate changes are updated globally
  • Payroll - everyday payroll processing and tax filing that is very user friendly

Cons

  • Re-Hire process is not well-defined. I have not had an easy time with any employee I have re-hired. ADP has acknowledged that there are issues with this process so hopefully they are looking into it.
  • Reports - The report name does NOT always indicate what the final report will supply. It would be very helpful to show a sample of what the report looks like when completed so we can see if it has the information needed. At this point, I have to go thru the whole process of selecting the criteria and running the report and then find out if it is what I was looking for or not.

  • Database infrastructure - Visual Fox Pro
  • Organizations with multiple FEIN's - The product does not handle employee transfers well across FEIN's
  • Custom Reporting Limitations - Crystal Reports is difficult for the basic user and requires IT support.

Once you get used to Workforce Now, it becomes "home." Additionally, changing databases is such a huge decision that it is unrealistic to jump from one to another.

I do not work with this software anymore, and I am not involved with the renewal of it. However, if I were, I would still suggest using it unless something better was introduced

ADP Workforce Now8.3
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.

Alternatives Considered

ADP does the full processing which is why we switched to them. They are good at what they do so it made sense to let the experts do the processing and reporting.
Joey Wilinski profile photo
Sage HRMS is popular and it's used in most organizations due to the reputation of Sage in coming up with popular and reliable business softwares. The software is not that expensive and after learning how to use it, everything becomes smooth and perfect. It's ultimate strength lies in payroll management and helping in applicant tracking capabilities
