We are happy with the service and options offered by ADP. Although the cost is a bit high for a not-for-profit organization, it is essential that we have multi-jurisdictional support for the 20 plus states where employees work and reside. As our company is diminishing in size, we may need to look at making a change to conserve costs. At this time, that would be the only reason we would not renew our WFN contract.

Workforce now is simple and has a great support team. Running payroll weekly is a breeze with Workforce now. Employees are able to manage their personal information and simple requests can be done online. The use of paper has been reduced and approvals for requests can be responded to in minutes as opposed to several days or weeks.

ADP Workforce Now has an awesome staff. They are reachable to address concerns and issues promptly. The functionality of the system is easy and requires very little training. Training and instructions is available without needing to rely on a person to walk you through it.

The only reason we haven't yet switched from ADP is because it is a huge lift, a big change for practitioners with the learning curve, and implementing a new system to employees. We will likely change to a new system within the next year.

Overall, we have been happy with ADP Workforce Now for 4+ years. Although it isn't 100% smooth all of the time, we are very comfortable with our day-to-day and week-to-week process of time management, payroll processing and human resource management. The fact that ADP is constantly working to improve the usability and functionality of their product is a huge plus as well.

Due to the lack of support from the sales and service center we are looking at other options outside of ADP. Again it is a good system, it just lacks the support it deserves from the company employees. It is just unimaginable that you will need to reach out to a service provider several times for the same issue and not get it resolved.

I am currently reviewing other payroll products to see if there is another option. Change would depend on the cost of another product and what functionality it offered us compared to ADP. Ease of use is one thing that is also very important when making a change. I am not sold on keeping ADP.

The reporting capabilities within ADP provide us with the ability to easily plan and analyze labor budgets and performs other functions that are strong than other platforms we've used. Makes it very hard to give up and consider other options!
