HCM is one of the top class HR solution availble right now. It can be use for any size of company. Employees can excess it from anywhere and reduces work force.
  • It’s good in managing staff
  • Accessibility from anywhere
  • It’s easy to use
  • It’s interface is bit tricky. But eventually get used to it.
  • Other then that it’s one of the best tool.
  • It’s manages everything
It’s best for the company of any size. It’s really beneficial for employees as well as for the management . It refuses workforce.

ADP Vantage HCM manages all the HR related back-end processes including payroll, W2, W4, State tax forms, leave management etc. and acts as a single-pane-of-window for unification of all HCM services. It's a one-stop-solution for all are HR needs and truly helped us manage lot of the HR related activities. No need to manage disparate tools, softwares, platforms etc. and end to all the woes associated with managing multiple vendors.
  • One-stop-shop solution for all HR needs
  • Very customizable, setup time was minimal
  • User-friendliness for end consumers (employees)
  • Interoperable with existing corporate systems
  • User interface, still feels primitive
  • Customer care is very generic, not meant for employer specific questions
  • Lack predictive, prescriptive recommendations
[ADP Vantage HCM is] great for big organizations with complex processes and who need all the features/functionalities provided by the platform. May not be very suitable for smaller companies who aren't as elaborate in terms of their HR processes and the enterprise licensing costs can be slightly prohibitive.

Great for companies looking for plug-and-play solutions which need minimal/no customization off the shelf.

We use Vantage across our organization for HR data and Payroll processing. Vantage allows us to keep all of our HR records and payroll in one place, making Vantage the central hub for all of our employee information and serving other platforms such as our network security, time clock, benefits management, intranet, etc. <br><br>Having worked with other ADP products in other companies, as well as home grown and competitor solutions, I am happy to have a centralized solution. As an analyst, I have a single system of record for all things related to the employee, which makes serving my stakeholders that much simpler. Having a single system to maintain also makes vendor-level escalations simpler, which saves us time and money.
  • User Security Granularity: I can fine-tune access exactly, rather than give someone too little or too much access.
  • Employee Data Security: All of our data is secure and encrypted by ADP. I do not have to manage security beyond keeping users from giving their username and password to someone. The rest is out of sight and out of mind, handled by ADP.
  • Out of the Box Functionality: While we did have to make configuration decisions in implementation, the functions and customizations we make inside of ADP all function from day one and are not affected by security updates, new versions, or patches. With other highly customized products, any update to the stock system poses a threat to functionality. ADP Vantage does exactly what we want it to do, the way we want it, and without being disabled by ongoing life-cycle management by ADP.
  • ADP Reporting: Let's be honest. Few managers actually use ADP. Most of the people in ADP are practitioners and techs/analysts. The canned reports likely are not being used, while analysts like myself who want to put together powerful analytics reports, do not have full access to the data through the dashboards or advanced reporting options. Give us the ability to have access to the database tables so we can run reports as needed, without having to navigate the odd semantics inside the shell of ADPR. I've seen this done with day old data dumps to SQL, but the data is not real time. My preference would be for an API or similar link so that I could create live dashboards in PowerBI or Tableau.
  • Support Tickets: We live and die by our emails. Yet we have a few products, such as ADP, that require us to go to their internal ticketing system to see the status of our service requests. It would be beneficial to be able to manage status updates and communication through email, including the ability to generate a new ticket.
As I stated earlier, ADP as an out of the box solution, it is far better for a company who is moving away from a home grown or overly complex system. It does exactly what is necessary and provides powerful options to boot, while not [requiring] advanced degrees to operate. ADP has been around long enough that it has experience with most 3rd party platforms for integration, and that makes it easier for companies to be able to customize their total HR solution, be it through a full ADP suite or by connecting ADP to systems they already have in place.

So far the Ventage seems overcomplicated versus to ADP Workforce Now. It is more complicated and not really user-friendly. it is more manual and does not calculate salary rate adjustment if adjustments took place in the middle of the pay period. I am not happy with ventage at all. The local as well as state tax section also very unclear and to understand how to use it and how to monitor employees address changes and set up notifications for any address changes, we went through a long back and forth with the ADP team and finally were able to have weekly optimization meetings with ADP team, so we would be able to understand the system and make changes to a current setup, so it will be more automated. Still, the Vantage is absolutely not user-friendly from our payroll standpoint!
  • Separation of payroll side from HR and Benefits, which complies with the separation duties laws
  • [The] tax setup section needs more work, it is unclear sometimes if we need to set up tax in Smart Compliances or somewhere else, and then the rode to make that tax active and add it to the employee.
  • [The] payroll audit could be more clear and include more data from all adjustments, for example, if there is [a] salary rate change, there [are] not flags to check that in [the] audit section of the payroll.
For the purpose of complying with separation of duties laws as well as to avoid any personal information breaches, the Ventage would be a great system, but the organization would face challenges navigating through all the systems, to make it more automated. From my personal experience, [the] ADP Workforce Now is a better system, though.

We currently use it to process our payroll in the United States. It does process payroll faster than our old system.
  • Speed in Processing.
  • Employee self Service is awesome.
  • Quick reporting.
  • We can download paystubs and w2s easily.
  • Better notification of when there will be a system change.
  • Have one dedicated support person instead of a team.
  • It is difficult to get immediate answers when needed.
  • The one-off tax service is more efficient [than] the full-service tax support.
  • One-off services appear to be much more effective than full service.
Not in states/cities with complicated tax structures, eg PA , city of Detroit, and New York City.

The system is utilized across the whole organization for Human Resources and Time Management. It is a "one-stop" shop for everything related to an employee life cycle within the company.
  • Data Analytics
  • Onboarding; it makes the new hire employee experience easier
  • Time Management
  • Time Module; timecards only retain the primary rate of pay for reporting. It would be great to see additional rates that are paid to reflect the secondary rate in the calculation of hours.
  • I dislike having to go to different areas to access 1 employee record. Would be nice to pull up the employee and have multiple points on the record versus having to go to multiple areas for 1 employee.
Great for larger organizations.

ADP Vantage is used for HR (Core HR, Benefits, Talent, Recruitment) and payroll. Our employees use ADP on a daily basis to punch in and out for timecards. Employees are also able to update all their personal information such as address, phone, life events etc. Managers also use ADP Vantage self-service to enter information on transfers, pay changes, etc. We are completely paperless for all activities.
  • Ambassador Rewards is a great program that practitioners can participate in.
  • MyADP has a great look and feel but needs to be rolled out and not everything is there yet for our company.
  • Self Service is the best part about ADP. Supervisors/Managers can submit items to be approved. Practitioners in ADP set up the workflow for the activities they can submit.
  • I like the control practitioners have when it comes to security settings.
  • ADP in general LOVES to roll out new products however it is very clear the new products are not tested by people that actually would use the product. Also they tend to roll out products that are NOT ready to be rolled out. ADP Vantage in general is a great example of this. ADP wanted to be a contender in the product solutions of everything is 1 product and it is seamless. That is NOT true about ADP Vantage. ADP Vantage is not real time when it comes to benefits talking to payroll. Ben Calc still needs to run in the background and be set to payroll. ADP Vantage should have never been marketed the way it was. Unfortunately our company bought into it and we have the product we have and now have to work with what we have.
  • Another example of ADP rolling out new products before they are ready is My ADP. I tested this thoroughly before and I had to send a 17 page document to my service team to fix items that were not correct. Its frustrating to say the least.
  • ADP loves to change your service team on you. We have had it rough since day 1 with ADP.... our service team is who we rely on to get answers to issues. ADP will just switch them without any notices. Mary Ladwig was a great service rep for benefits and without notice Mary was pulled from my account and I was given a different rep. Not only did ADP do this without notice but they did it right before Open Enrollment the absolute worst time for ADP to pull a rep. We have had the most challenging Open Enrollment and it is purely because ADP decided to pull my rep and then give me a completely inexperienced rep for Open Enrollment implementation.
  • ADP Reporting is horrible. There is nothing to say other than it is not user friendly.
  • ADP loves a good release to try and fix issues. However 99.9% of the time the release causes more issues that ADP did not test for.
Our company now has worked out most of the kinks but it has taken us 4 years. Items that you think would be easy are never easy with ADP. Overall out product is working the way it is working because we worked 16+ hours days to figure out the issues. We didn't have the time to do this but unfortunately we don't have the ability to switch at this time so we have to figure it out.

We currently have 31 different pay groups that we process payroll for. We just implemented the recruiting module a few months ago that feeds into VantageHCM for all new hires. We're still trying to reduce the amount of paper that is processed between the business units, HR, and payroll. Everything is working as we expect it to.
  • The dedicated service team allows for faster response to issues.
  • It provides easy navigation for all employees, managers, and practitioners.
  • Time cards, benefits, and payroll are all part of VantageHCM -- instead of three separate systems.
  • It could provide a better reporting functionality for practitioners.
  • I would like notifications from ADP when certain areas of the system are not working or are running slow.
  • I would like more detailed instructions on how to do certain things, such as a new state tax setup.
ADP is well suited for a larger company with at least 100 or more employees. It's too complex for a small company with less than 50 employees, but it is a great system to migrate to if using multiple systems for timecards, benefits, and payroll. when ensuring we are compliance with new state requirements, hard to verify with ADP is all of our companies have been set up correctly.

ADP Vantage HCM is being used by our entire organization. The self-service aspect is great. It has empowered our team members to do training online, update their information, and get their pay statements and W-2s any time and any place they'd like. We've also gone almost completely paperless in HR and have been able to save money with ADP Vantage HCM.
  • Learning Management--this is great because team members can do required training courses online at any time. This saves us money and time because we don't need to travel as much.
  • Employee self-service--team members can update their personal information without having to fill out paper forms and send them in. This has resulted in savings regarding paper purchases and ink.
  • Manager self-service--managers are able to initiate some changes for their team and this has simplified processes and resulted in fewer lost changes.
  • eTime doesn't always work properly. The support team is a bit slow in responding and resolving issues.
  • Onboarding needs to become more user friendly, especially for managers and practitioners to audit progress.
  • The mobile app needs to have the same accessibility as the mobile website.
We have been having some issues with time and time access. I'm not sure why these issues pop up suddenly. I really like the learning management and performance management modules. They're pretty easy to set up and use. There are a few little tweaks that could help make the system work more smoothly. I wish we could configure more items ourselves.

In our company ADP Vantage HCM is being used across the organization, from human resources and payroll to employees to reporting for senior management. The main purpose we use it for is payroll, although it is also used for recruiting and other purposes.
  • It is very easy to learn and use, especially if you are familiar with ADP products
  • The support team at ADP has been great and extremely helpful
  • Employee self service portion is very beneficial
  • The training information provided is definitely lacking, it is hard to find ways to learn quick tips or techniques and there appear to be no pre-recorded training sessions
  • After using both Vantage HCM and WorkforceNow - Vantage is definitely a step backwards or a downgrade regarding its capabilities
  • The reporting also seems to be lacking and/or the training is hidden somewhere. I am a quick learner but do not find the reporting tool to be easy to self-teach on and so I have been extremely limited in the reporting I have been able to use.
Although ADP Vantage HCM is no a terrible product, it is by far not the best product that ADP has to offer. If the main reason for choosing it is the cost, then I would be sure to calculate the cost of having employees, managers need to use other programs to backup or create information that Vantage is not able to. With that said, it is a fairly easy system to learn (especially if you are familiar with ADP products) and the support team that I have had experience with has been, for the most part, exceptional.

ADP Vantage HCM is being used company-wide for recruitment, HR, payroll and time. This system allowed us to standardize processes and implement more security so we could open up more options for self-service.
  • ADP Vantage has a wonderful reporting feature called "Field Grabber". This allows even very inexperienced users to create the reports they need.
  • ADP Vantage has a robust security management tool. We can set up users into a standard profile or easily create unique profiles for special circumstances.
  • ADP Vantage gives the client access to manage their own setup, for the most part. We can manage our setup to incorporate changes in our processes.
  • ADP Vantage can improve it's effective dating options. Many users don't understand what date to use and end up selecting a date that causes a problem with the data. It would be nice if we could set parameters to this field on certain screens.
  • It is not easy to audit any user activity ADP Vantage. It's a complex report to run that needs to be deciphered, not easy to read for the occasional ADP user.
  • Several fields are not as they are named, so it is not as user-friendly as it appears. For example, in Garnishments, if you have a Federal Tax Levy Agreement it has to be entered as Lien Type of Child Support order with a Sub Type of Private Order. No one would figure that out on their own.
I believe ADP is great for large businesses that are expanding. There are lots of cool features that we haven't used simply because they don't apply to us yet, but I hope to use them in the future. The Data Cloud and Bench Marking are ideal for the large business that wants to see where they are in the market and their changes over time.

At my current company, Vantage is used across the entire organization. It starts with recruiting all the way through to the employees using the ADP Vantage app to access information and also to punch in and out.
  • Payroll processing
  • Timekeeping
  • Auditing
  • Reporting
  • Communication on updates to Vantage.
  • Training for use of the reporting.
  • We recently ran into an issue with grossing up pay and couldn't get 401k to be included.
  • State/county tax information/guidance on some of the more complex states.
ADP Vantage HCM is a great system for small to larger companies. The timekeeping was a smooth transition when everyone had to work from home during Covid, as was all other purposes that we use it for. It can be tricky for supervisors to use, as they don't have as much experience entering transfers and other changes, as HR and Payroll do, so a more intuitive tool for them would be helpful.

We use ADP Vantage HCM across the whole organization. It addresses employee access to their records such as new hire orientation and pay statements/W2s, and benefits enrollment. It also helps our management keep track of their team and make updates to their records as needed.
  • Benefits - streamlines the enrollment process and gets all of our benefits information over to our carriers in a smooth process
  • New Hire Orientation - gets all of the necessary sign-offs all in one place for the new hires, and the manager can confirm that everything has been completed in a timely manner
  • Reporting - while sometimes the reporting can be complicated, the ADPR system has been made more user-friendly and ADP provides training classes
  • Reporting - this feature could be made more user-friendly especially when combining benefits and job information
  • Benefits - more intersection with the ACA rules and regulations so that we don't have to get things set up as a one-off specifically for our company
  • Security features for admins/practitioners - for those of us that use the system on a daily basis, we shouldn't have to get passcodes for each time that we access employee information. Or we should be given a 30-60-90 day pass to access that information before we have to get a passcode again.
ADP Vantage HCM is useful for all employees and any size of business in any industry, especially since it is web-based and employees can access it from anywhere. It helps for when they need to see their information outside of the physical workplace as well as the normal business hours. Overall it's a good product.

It gives our HR/Payroll team better control over payroll-related activities provides easier access to employee / wage information simplifies reporting/compliance / record-keeping and helps employers address employee information confidentiality concerns. The system does a great when it calculates net pay, federal withholding tax, Social Security tax, Medicare, state and local payroll taxes - which flows to accounting.

This software also supports user-defined Income, Tax, and Pre-tax / Post-tax Deduction categories making it very flexible and powerful. It has streamlined HR office work into one hub. Reporting is strong yet simple to use.

  • New Hire and Termination workflows
  • Leave Management workflows

ADP Vantage HCM is used by the HR department throughout the United States. Users range from the Corporate HR team to Regional HR managers, HR generalists, and clerks. Our executive team/managers use it for general team reporting (i.e. team demographics, etc.). It allows users to pull full headcounts or employee details as well as hire, transfer, and terminate employees within one system.
  • Field Grabber is an amazing reporting feature that allows you to select fields in employee records and extract them to a report via Excel. Very easy!!
  • The platform is inconsistent. Some days some items don't work, other days they do work.
  • A lot of system malfunctions are not communicated to clients until the client discovers them and reports them, only to be told it is a 'known defect'.
  • ADP R is incredibly complex to use. We have to constantly call ADP R for help. A dedicated ADP R rep would be helpful so they can help manage our reports.
It is well suited for a nicely structured company that has linear reporting structures with not many departments or business units within it. It is less appropriate for large companies that have various departments that traverse through various Business Units.

We use ADP HCM throughout our organization on Guam as our main human capital solutions from payroll to recruitment. We’re currently working through the process to get all our benefits up and running there. We hope to see a connection with StandOut for engagement purposes (I am currently working to square this away soon) and the performance platform in our near future.
  • Payroll is fast
  • Easy to use
  • It’s basically a one stop shop for all your HR needs.
  • Would be nice to have someone in our time zone, but I know our reps try their best.
ADP has become our main source for employees to give them on demand access to all that is HR. Giving them the empowerment to have all the tools they’ll need on a digital solution. I am new to my role in HR but since seeing all the capabilities ADP HCM has to offer, I’ve been impressed.

We only use ADP Vantage HCM to process our payroll.
  • Pretty consistent in accuracy
  • Up to date with federal and state laws
  • Provides different solutions based on needs
  • Report writing
  • Access to view setups
  • Speed of return calls, solving service requests, overall customer service
It's been working for us so far but definitely the experience could be better. I remember when we had just launched ADP Vantage HCM, there were no proper directions and some issues that we had to solve, but now things are going smoothly.

We converted to ADP Vantage from their PCPW platform in 2019. Currently ADP is used only to do payroll but we are currently looking to expand its use.
  • Paperless Vouchers
  • Support Teams from ADP
  • Ease of processing payroll
  • Currently I have none.
[Well suited to] reduce the amount of effort needed to process a payroll timely and accurately. Our employees now have real-time access to their payroll and PTO time once the payroll is processed.

We currently use Vantage HCM across the whole organization. For the past year, we have been transitioning to a Shared Service Model where we are implementing companies from our parent company to service their Benefits, Human Resources, and Payroll needs. Because we are transitioning to this shared service model using ADP as our platform, it is saving our parent company a significant amount of money.
  • Payroll processing
  • ADP mobile app
  • Health & welfare platform
  • Not all screens are set up uniformly.
  • Issues with product enhancements are communicated quickly.
ADP Vantage HCM has amazing reporting features. You are able to build reports on the fly for specific things asked by different departments. The user-friendliness of the mobile app makes it easy to give our employees the ability to do things on their own that took a bit of time away from the back office. Payroll processing is a breeze with the tools that ADP provides.

We currently use ADP Vantage for our payroll, Hr, benefits, and time.
  • ADP is very user friendly.
  • Customer service is a main focus.
  • Always stays on top of updates.
  • The reporting side could be a bit challenging if you are not a little technical.
  • The requesting time off can be a bit user friendly and simpler to navigate.
It's a very easy system to use, if set up properly it's very useful.

Used by HR & Payroll. It provides solutions for payroll processing, compliance and on-boarding.Helps figure out any HR or payroll errors. Also a great control between hr and accounting!
  • Reporting
  • Time & attendance
  • Employee profiles
  • Site glitches
  • System goes down on payroll processing days
Despite inconvenient system glitches, overall with the amount of data we have - ADP Vantage definitely helps us ensure correct payroll processing weekly.
