The product is excellent and you can add or subtract modules depending on company size or needs. It doesn't matter if your company has 10 or hundreds of employees, the system will accommodate that. You can even set up what they call company codes by regions. I have 2 US company codes and within one of them I have 2 other regions company codes.

I have used Workforce Now in companies with as few as 25 employees and as many as thousands. That said, obviously, ADP is capable of growing with almost any size company. Workforce Now has certainly kept up with our company as we continue to grow and expand.

I've worked with ADP products throughout my career with different companies. It's been my experience that ADP is always changing for the better to better serve the people. If you are a small company or if you are growing rapidly, don't worry, ADP can keep up with you!

ADP Workforce Now Review

ADP Workforce Now is clearly very scalable with the proper support staff for training in its use. The issue we had with our implementation at least early on was not enough training in its uses and various functions. This was because our rollout staff themselves did not have enough time or training it its use. With all things a little bit of time invested in training properly on the front end leads to better results in the long run.

ADP Workforce Now: The best choice for payroll solutions.

They have made several changes within the 5-6 years we have been using this service. Each update has been an improvement in streamlining the product and making it more user-friendly. They continue to be available to ask any questions and are never condescending. The team at ADP makes doing payroll a pleasure.

The Chow on Workforce Now

It's user-friendly not only for those who use computers or ADP currently and on a more frequent basis, but those users who only access the program when they need to obtain a copy of their check stub or timecard for the week. It is also easily accessible for the differently levels of users as well to maneuver through the program in order to obtain what they need. During open enrollment it was a breeze for employees to make their elections. I do believe that it would be more beneficial and error free for employees if notes were made briefly explaining what the coverage is just reiterate what the employer covers as we all know sometimes when we communicate important information our listeners are not comprehending or paying attention even though we inform them that this information is crucial and to asks us questions.

The system and its functions work well for my company's needs, even though we do not use a lot of the products features, such as cobra, HR, on-site check-printing, etc.. I can see how it incorporates all aspects a company would need for even workflow and performance.

ADP is always making updates and adjustments to their site and program, I feel they are growing well, but I believe they would do better with longer testing of new rollouts. As well as better explanations and walk-throughs of new techniques.

It depends on your company structure. If you are adding separate FEINs that process payroll on the same day then this is not the platform for you. You risk glitches that are harmful to your payroll - it is still a good Master Record Database and they can handle the multiple FEINs under the parent company but not the payrolls. If you are processing one payroll and growing. The system allows you to import data in large volumes if you have an acquisition that will be coming onto your payroll and FEIN.

We have found, at least from the time side of things, that our population is too much for the system. I think we should have been sold a product that could grow with us.

ADP is a good product for medium to large companies because it can do more things than the smaller payroll companies, and it is these extra items that the larger companies need. Some of the small companies may be able to do some things better but they don't have all of the options that ADP does and they can't handle the volume of employees that ADP can.
