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.

Vibe HCM

At the time of the selection process we were attracted to the prospect of going to paperless environment for almost all of our HR transactions. Questions we considered were:
1. Does this interface with our current HRIS system?
2. Flexibility with upgrade and new releases.
3. Do they offer comprehensive Self Service and Management Tools?
4. Is the implementation and support cost effective?

Pros

  • The blending of all aspects of HR in ADP makes the system use very fluid. We like that we can have the employee in the system from hire to retire.
  • Allowing employees to have access to their own information is very empowering for them. We like that employees can look at their benefit enrollments, tax information and address along with their payroll history. This is very empowering from an employee standpoint.
  • From a manager standpoint I feel that the system gives the manager great power to make decisions. It can be simple things like workforce planning but also things along the lines of performance evaluations and annual reviews and pay increases.
  • Reporting abilities are AMAZING. You can get a report on basically anything you want in ADP. It can be a challenge to find out how to get that information into a report but the Customer Service help when it comes to custom reporting is great.

  • Vibe HCM allows our affiliate banks to remain flexible and to have customizable workflows for newly hired individuals, transferred employees, and people leaving the corporation. This freedom enables Zions Bancorporation to let each affiliate operate autonomously.
  • The Vibe HCM product is supported by an outstanding customer service team. They are responsive to issues and consistently provide solutions in a timely manner.
  • Support and collaboration when implementing new products for employee self-service and manager self-service modules has made the transition process seamless and easy.
  • They have shown the ability to be flexible with constant regulatory changes we are required to implement

Cons

  • There are often long waits for a customer service representative.
  • We had some employees that had difficulty creating a profile - but it was resolved quickly on the back end.
  • When I get a timecard exception notice, it would be nice to have details (employee name, date of exception) readily available within the notification.

  • A recent system patch was implemented which caused some workflows to fail. In the future, I would like to be notified before patches are executed so that I can actively monitor the workflows. We were able to address this directly with the support Team and they were responsive to our request.

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.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

I've also used ADP Pay Expert, and I really see Workforce Now as the logical continuation of Pay Expert. Workforce Now has better integration capabilities, streamlined processes, and fewer technical glitches. That said, if your company has a relatively simple payroll setup, Workforce Now doesn't really offer anything that Pay Expert doesn't.

I can't answer that as I was not involved in that part of the decision.

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.

  • Vibe HCM has been providing Zions Bancorporation with range of tools that fully encompass all areas of HR Operations. We have found that these tools have made our business process more efficient.
