They are more suited to growing, nimble companies. They are soon adding employee approval to time cards and checkin by facial recognition. Additions and changes to improve functionality might not work for a very large company like GE.

Viventium Software

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

  • Still has a dedicated personal support staff with broad product knowledge.
  • They do not release a feature until it has been fully vetted - much fewer bolt-on solutions.
  • Has embraced third parties (brokers, CPAs) as partners in using the platform.

  • Payroll is very fast and quick, logical steps.
  • Customer support is great.

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.
Janet Fowler profile photo
  • 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.

Usability

APS9.5
Based on 4 answers
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

APS8.7
Based on 4 answers
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

The boutique feeling and the great customer service are worth its weight in gold! APS OnLine is also financially a great decision. All around, a perfect way for our size of company to go. We haven't looked back since!

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
