Global HR management and payroll processing is a complex area. That said, ADP is going a great job with the software platform. Users do need to come into this work with knowledge of what the outcome should be, how the input affects output, how one item affects other items, and more. This is not an area for an entry clerk to be working.

Customer service has really ramped up in effectiveness. Cross training so one representative can assist without multiple transfers, has been a big improvement. The online support platform allows for creating a case, following progress and constant communication.

Choosing an 8 rating leaves room for the major and exciting changes that are in progress. We look forward to what is rolled out soon based on the ever present feedback from users.

The software is easy to use and there are helpful links attached to almost every action. There are plenty of opportunities to learn how certain functions work and there is a vast library of helpful tutorials to guide you with every step. You can rewatch the tutorials as many times as needed to make sure you are able to grasp the program.

It has it's quirks from a speed perspective with every update they put out. It's never consistent on what speed issues occur after the last update. It's always one section will guarantee lag after an update.

In almost all cases ADP allows for drill down options no matter where you are. They reporting functionality is fantastic with their field grabber tool. On every feature I can think of there is a question mark icon that allows access to how to tutorials or videos which is really helpful. They also offer The Bridge which is a forum where you can ask other users questions and is very helpful.

It holds its own as an HRIS/Payroll system. There are still areas that are clunky and old, that if updated would be more functional.

Whenever they make "changes" or "Enhancements", it just buries things that used to be easy to find. What I mean is these changes make things more complicated to find, or they change the look or capability of other screens that you need. There is no easy avenue to find anything anymore... too many subgroups. It's frustrating and to come in one a payday, just to find that "new Enhancements" were made over the weekend, causes a LOT of undue stress for me.

It is a very user friendly system, it has a lot of how to videos and notes. They have a very robust training system which include virtual and in room trainings. I went over all the trainings they had on the website and did the physical trainings as well. You can even get certificates for the completed trainings.

ADP's basics are quite easy particularly for employees (self service) and manager/timekeepers. For HR, some aspects are quite easy, others are complicated and require thorough knowledge of "ins and outs" to avoid issues. Some of ADPs workflows, meant to be used for all organizations, don't quite meet our needs and could result in issues without knowledge of how to avoid.

Very labor intensive. It is an over-robust system for average user.
