ADP Vantage HCM is a fully-integrated platform combining the pillars of human capital management: HR, payroll, benefits, talent management and time & attendance.Nostalgic for PayForceWe use Vantage for payroll processes and it was implemented as a replacement for PayForce.,fairly intuitive most of the time nice new user experience for employees with MyADP can process payroll,functionality is spotty - some things work differently depending on the field or page you are on - but not consistently across the application - some user ID fields need to use a leading zero - some you cannot use a leading zero lots of wasted space which requires the use of slide bars to view info - tons of extra key strokes to view or get into the information you want not a lot of thought given to how users will utilize/interact with the application - during our testing phase we were finding issue that should have been resolved in beta testing - some reports the headers are illegible due to poor formatting which we were told were a 'vantage design' and that we would get used to it the best way to get system enhancement requests to ADP is to complain/comment on The Bridge was the direction we were given we had a fully functional system which did all that we needed and were forced to 'upgrade' to a product which does not provide the basic functions that we had on the 'old/outdated' application - would have expected to get at least what we had plus some new functionality - now forced to redesign processes and find ways to work around vantages' limitations,7,negative -it slows our processing due to limitations and issues negative - makes us more reliant on our service rep which slows us down (we used to be able to make changes like adding departments on our own - now our rep has to do this and other maintenance for us) negative - we now have to pay for ADP to process adjustments for us instead of being able to use adjustments on our own,payforce,TimeForce, Oracle HCM Cloud, Microsoft Office 2016,8,2,calculation of payroll maintenance of employee info and history reporting,analytics additional reporting timekeeping,5,data bridges - if setup correctly (which is challenging) work well fairly intuitive to move around although often have to execute several commands to do something simple - too many clicks required for everything,takes too many clicks or scrolls to find or view information - the use of the screen space can be annoying if you are looking at an employees information and need to review history it takes you to the 1st tab and you have to navigate back to where you were each time - very cumbersome and not well designed lack of consistency across screens - some sort one way others sort differently - some fields require a leading zero while some will not yield results if a leading zero is used why are we finding issues with system that should have been resolved in beta testing lack of effective dating is troubling and likely to cause issues with auditing batch output reports are poorly designed and difficult to use/audit - or some no longer exist (PayForce ALPAY002A) ...,Yes, but I don't use it,2My OpinionUsed by HR & Payroll.

We do not use ADP for HR, benefits or time. The implementation was dropped after several months of trying. The employee data transfer files from our other sources did not work right. We are on the list to try the implementation again later this year. From what I have seen of Vantage during the test period and from the training I received it is a user-friendly system, especially if you are using the entire HCM package. I really liked the analytics.

ADP Vantage HCM Review: "Nostalgic for PayForce"

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

when required to move from PayForce to Vantage we expected to have greater functionality and reporting - did not expect to be forced to move to a product that was not ready, provided less functionality, required more dependence on ADP Service Rep for day to day function and cost more - was a big swing and a miss for ADP

There are a lot of steps to learn, you can't just "wing-it". You really have to take notes and familiarise yourself.
