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)

Love Viventium, can't say enough positive things about our experience. Of course, this is really in comparison to our old vendor. It was easy to implement, has been easy to maintain on a daily basis. There is some functionality that I think could be changed, however, it is minor. Processing payroll, which was our one main pain in the past has become very easy to do, errors are non-existent. While our main payroll person was out, the substitute didn't submit payroll, the error wasn't noticed until 9 am on the day of payroll. The Viventium customer service staff saw to it that everyone was paid that day by 5 pm. Win! Functionality moving around in Viventium has been great, it is easy to move from one employee to the next, or even one screen type between employees. Customization is easy and wonderful.I would say that Viventium is great for a company that wants hands-on customer service in the implementation process. Budget wise, paying per employee per month was a much better pricing model for us, it has saved me in the long run. I am able to run extra checks in the year without having to worry about the expense.

Pros

APS

  • It's fast and intuitive. Our previous contractors were ADP and Paychex and neither were intuitive. Our payroll runs have less errors now than with previous vendors. Payroll prep time is down from 5 hours with ADP to 2 hours with APS for the HR Manager.
  • The limiters are great. I'm always afraid of that error that no one caught. Let's assume that you add a $200 limiter to overtime. Any time that a staff member is about to receive more than $200 in overtime for that pay period, a red flag goes up for the HR manager to double check.
  • We have 3 programs in public schools that block certain ports. APS has a 2nd feature using GPS so that staff can only check in for their shift while they are in the designated GPS range. Great for someone who has to report to a remote location. Just add the GPS coordinates and they can't check until they get to the project.

Cons

APS

  • Reporting - We have six different business units and the reporting is separate for all three. Most reporting I do requires information from all business units so am running six reports and then copying and pasting to get the report I need.
  • Multi-state taxes - We have a number of employees who live in New York and work in New Jersey. APS OnLine is designed to accommodate one state withholding so ability to have "worked in" state and "lived in" state taxes withheld went away. This was a shortfall.
  • The Carrier connection setup took much longer than expected. After a year, we are still having some issues with some items transferring over to the GL.
  • The CA overtime calculation does not calculate after 8 hours per day, only on the 40 per week so we override each week.
  • Reporting - when running Benefit reports, it recognizes employees who formerly carried the plan but may have dropped it. To get around this, we have to delete off the employee's record so the history is not readily available.

  • More items that employees can change (address/withholding)
  • HR having the ability to cancel leave (vacation/PTO/sick) instead of just the manager
  • Ability to show when deductions dropped/started

I have been using the system for over a year now and feel more comfortable with the functionality of it. I have just recently implemented the benefit administration portion.

In general, it's a great system to use. We were looking for simplicity and ease of use and have received raves from our employees in their ability to access and make use of the system. There is still so much more that we have yet to gain as we continue working through each of the modules.

There is one primary account representative that we contact on a regular basis. If she is unavailable, there are others on her team. It does seem that our implementation was more complex than others that have been installed, so fixes are not as easily remedied.

Implementation

APS

It would have been helpful to understand the phases of the implementation up front so I could have prepared differently for enrollments, billing, and transfer of information to payroll. At the end of the day, I'm happy with the selection and the system and anticipate I will like it better as we go along. We have done a number of other system implementations in the past few years, and this has been pretty painless, however, I've had a few surprises.

Alternatives Considered

APS

All the other payroll systems were very complicated and had a lot of capabilities that were nto needed for an organization of our size. This made it difficult to use and confusing. APS covers all our needs and does so with ease of use and great support

We used Paylocity previously to Viventium. I would say hands down, Paylocity has better functionality and more power. What they are lacking is customer service and accuracy. When it comes to payroll, those are the two things that are critical. Viventium has the backing of a long history of a payroll company, it all depends on what you are looking for. An HRIS, or a payroll company. I wanted a mix of both. I also wanted to move away from the per transaction pricing structure, with Paylocity, we were charged for every little thing. It got to be a hunt for the over charges

Return on Investment

  • APS OnLine has helped us streamline the payroll process by freeing up our time of not having to personally cut and sign weekly paychecks. We don't have to rely on check signers to be present which has helped our timeliness as well.
