  • Having the Payroll Services streamlined, quite a few of our employees now utilize the mobile app.
  • There is quite a bit of a learning curve with this product - especially for a small business. But it is worth it as some companies, such as Zenefits, are easy to navigate, they have more limitations and lack of support compared to WFN.

ADP WFN: efficient, easy to use & continuing to improve

  • By utilizing the Benefits Enrollment feature in WFN, it has saved us a tremendous amount of time and paper.
  • The I-9 Employment Verification feature gives me one less thing to have to worry about staying in compliance with because I trust their system and it ensures that our process is consistent.

  • By having our mapping configured properly, we are saving 4 hours per pay period in manual entries. That's 104 hours per year that can be used toward other projects!
  • Since we decided to go paperless with our payroll, all employees have the option to enroll in direct deposit or receive a pay card. We no longer have checks sitting out there uncashed and our payroll balancing is so much easier.

Return on Investment

  • I appreciate how it has instilled more of a personal responsibility in the frontline staff for their own hours, pay, and accumulations.
  • This heavy reliance on mobile phone app use, while very much a need for the modern workforce, leaves some older employees feeling out of control of their own job. I have several employees who lack the tech understanding and need to be shown every week how to approve their hours using a computer.

Return on Investment

  • I spend less time processing payroll for 1500 employees here than I did processing 500 at my last job using Ceridian.
  • Not having a time-consuming process to send the payroll (I hit the Accept button) and not having to upload files after the payroll is processed and checks are delivered (I hit Start New Cycle) saves me a lot of time in itself.

We like ADP but would like a few specific improvements

  • The time involved in the Recruitment Module is much more labor-intensive than our prior manual system; however, it does provide better reporting and statistics.
  • Performance Management system for disciplinary action is working well. The PIP process was changed significantly and we are still trying to figure that out. The annual reviews are running smoothly.

Return on Investment

  • I don't have specific numbers, but the most tangible reward in my eyes is when the HR contact sings the praises of employees who are able to access information at the touch of a finger when they previously stood at the HRM's door for simple tasks.
  • We have a single system across an organization which saves time in not combining data from multiple sources.

  • ADP likes to nickel and dime you for any feed you would like to add coming in and out. We wanted to integrate ADP into our IT Active Directory for maximizing SOC compliance (business objective) of new hires and termination timeliness and the cost was outrageous. Just to sit down with an implementation specialist was a pain and then once we got the cost, our IT department decided they weren't interested due to the high monthly costs.
  • We spend a lot of manpower time in HR/payroll fixing ADP's issues with payroll and time and attendance.
