I honestly feel ADP can handle any industry. Are they perfect? No, no one is! I also feel like I have never been told something incorrect or told "what I wanted to hear," then later to find they were wrong or can't deliver. That is huge. There are many platforms out there that may have good intentions, make promises but, unfortunately, can't deliver. Many times the client is too far in and can't back away and has to settle and make a product that isn't best for their work. We have never had that with ADP.

For clients looking for a communications portal this is a perfect fit. However, for clients looking to do online enrollment it is still lacking key features that other systems like

Sometimes, I go into a screen and things are different and I have to relearn it on the fly. Editing the mobile app - I would like it if what is shown on the desktop version was automatically on the app. WAY more of my employees use the app, but I put the most important information on the desktop version because it is easier to update.

This would eliminate the need to input and update data in multiple systems Integration to HR systems like Oracle or other HR platforms would be a bonus Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Due to the lack of support from the sales and service center we are looking at other options outside of ADP. Again it is a good system, it just lacks the support it deserves from the company employees. It is just unimaginable that you will need to reach out to a service provider several times for the same issue and not get it resolved.

User adoption is low within the client base that we have implemented this at and unless it can offer full EDI capabilities we will not be able to move away from
or Plan Source solutions

I would give it a 10 however I do not like when ADP does facelifts in Workforce Now which does not add any value other than having to relearn navigation. I am also not a big fan of being forced to refer to the Bridge. We have Google which gives the same results. If I understood the answer I would not contact our Account Rep.

Overall, I think the functionality of the program works pretty well. Sometimes, certain browsers do not work well for the policy function of ADP, but that is the only issue thus far

Support can take a few days to get back to you sometimes. I often hear they are "unsure" and have to ask someone else. Usually, by the time they get back to me, I have found the answer on the Bridge or on my own.

In-person training was pretty good - I think this significantly depends on the trainer. Our trainer was really good and showed what ADP can do - but I know that all trainers are not the same - and this truly makes such as difference. Overall, our training went pretty well.

At the time training was not as expansive as it is now. If it could go wrong it did for me so the process was difficult and lengthy. I needed to have more in person walkthroughs of things to ensure the transition was done correctly. Not sure what else I can say, we were part of the initial move to Workforce Now when it was introduced.
Read full review Implementation Rating
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.

Although this SAS takes longer to perform the everyday functions related to payroll and HR data input, the difference in this software and our previous software is like night and day. We were on a very old server platform and had too many issues with continuous need for backup.

Read full review Return on Investment ADP WorkforceNow has provided a positive ROI for our company. It has saved me countless hours in the time I used to spend preparing reports, managing benefits, and annual enrollment, recruitment tracking, and much more. The integration with Payscale has allowed our company to take every position in our organization and benchmark it to industries and job titles. This has allowed us to be more competitive on recruitment and retention. We have used the new DE&I dashboard to provide valuable information on the landscape of our workforce, as well as areas of our organization that may not be as diverse.
