APS

I think that APS Online is scalable to any organization. It's a wonderful product and I have had so many managers that work with me that feel the same way. We haven't been with them quite a year yet but since we've started it has made a world of difference for us. Things to ask about- 1- Do they specialize in or can they accommodate states that you are working in and their various rules?2- What type of customer service? Do they have a call center or do they have a designated person like APS?3- How long do your reports stay in the system? (ADP "archived" theirs after a year so we couldn't reach them)

Vibe HCM

I believe Vibe HCM is a very good solution for small to mid-sized organizations. Make sure you have created a list of requirements. The specific questions you ask are dependent on your organization's needs.

Cons

  • I have been disappointed in the communication between the programming department and its clients. I'm very impressed with the representatives such as Georgia, April and team, but not pleased with the turnaround time on solving issues. There was very little communication and only when I started the communication was there a reply.

  • The email notifications could be more clear, and more easily modified.

Alternatives Considered

APS Online was established before I was hired.

Our core HRIS system is ADP Enterprise. We were able to get the legacy employee self service contained in the old product up and working. Eventually ADP withdrew support for self service and doesn't support self service for premise based installations. We needed an employee portal. We heard about Vibe HCM and visited with them early 2007. It was a no brainer. The implementation of the basic functions was rapid and had very few issues. We have added functionality as our organization has been able to adopt the changes.

Return on Investment

  • They have made payroll day much easier.
Nathan Worthan profile photo
  • With the implementation of pre-boarding/onboarding we were able to greatly reduce the administration time our managers were spending to onboard a new employee.
  • Improved transparency in our organization around our vision/direction and a direct link for all employees to our CEO (CEO's blog).
  • Opened up channels and created opportunities for our employees to communicate and connect across the country.
