ADP Workforce Now love/hate relationship - More love than hate

Systems Integrated With

  • Reynolds and Reynolds
  • Merrill Lynch
It was extremely difficult to integrate all of our other systems with ADP. You have to know the questions to ask in order to get all of the answers. Normally we had to have a problem in order to find out we did not have something set up. You would think the departments within ADP (had to deal with 3 different departments for 3 different systems) would know all of the aspects of these systems but they don't. Integrating with Merrill Lynch took almost 2 years for it to work and it is still not 100%. Even know, after 3 years, we are still trying to fix problems with out benefit companies, Merrill Lynch and out internal system.

  • ADP E-Time
The integration of ADP E-Time with ADP Workforce Now was a lengthy but not complicated process. The reason for the lengthy part was that we had weekly sessions and we had a lot of different Pay/Work rules that took a lot of time to implement.

Systems Integrated With

  • The Org Chart app
  • The Onboarding feature
We are still experiencing a minor issue with the Org Chart app with the employee photos not automatically flowing over to the Org Chart; I am continuing to update our Onboarding feature to make it more efficient; and the Recruiting Platform has been easy to use, however, it would be nice if there was a simple way to search for a particular candidate that is not in an open requisition.

  • TimeClock Plus: This system is how each employee clocks in with their key fob. We can import this information into ADP Workforce Now.
This integration was not difficult at all. ADP guided us on what was necessary to create our payroll data file to match with ADP Workforce Now. It's a very smooth operation.

It wasn't difficult to achieve however ensuring that integration is carried over timely is important for not only the employer but the employee as well as we as the employer want to make sure its error-free as that determines the credibility with the employees and since we offer benefits that our employees are covered for what they are paying for and that they have their coverage when they need it as we had this happen to several employees after open enrollment and the new benefit year beginning, due to the integration there were issues with their benefits and not being covered since it wasn't carried over until after January 1.

This was on the HR side, but we had to have many calls with ADP to ensure the smooth integration of benefits information into ADP Workforce Now. This process could be made smoother.

  • ABI: Our time-clock system works with ADP in that the time-clock system breaks down events and therefore the different pay codes associated with the event and displays them on separate lines in the pay data batch to make visualizing during auditing much clearer.
  • ABI: We also administer a few job fairs during the year where we hire a few hundred employees at a time. After punching them into ADP, we perform an upload to bring the information into the time-clock system. A report in ADP creates an Excel sheet that easily uploads and populates all the fields I need to be filled for the employees to begin to punch-in and start training immediately.
Again, I wasn't here for the implementation of it, but I had to sit in on a meeting with IT for them to explain it to me so that I understood the dynamics of the fields and their purpose in case I encountered an error message as it was uploading, I would know where the field was pulling from and its limitation of characters. It did not seem to me that the creation of the Excel sheet was highly complicated, as our meeting was relatively brief and self-explanatory.

  • Core HR

The first year was tough because of the limitations on the support staff, who were in training while we were integrating all the different modules. It seemed to me that they were growing faster than their staff was ready for the growth.

  • Concur
  • IDI
We didn't use Concur's pre-built arm to ADP as the limitations didn't work for us so we went custom report route. We tie with our 401K vendors and we use IDI for rate reduction as well as certified payroll reporting at the suggestion of ADP.

  • Fidelity 401(k) Feedfile
  • MS Active Directory
We have multiple feed files outbound and we are working on an inbound feed file with Fidelity. Outbound to Fidelity for our 401(k) the project was a nightmare, it took months and months to get right between the two teams. I never want to go through that with another 401(k) vendor. We are trying to set up an inbound file from Fidelity into ADP right now, it is still in the early stages and it has started and stopped 3 times already due to possible reasons that ADP thought they couldn't do it and Fidelity found solutions they could use to solve the problem. ADP was constantly being a "negative nelly barrier." We tried an MS Active Directory feed file but we closed that project due to ADP's costs. Implementation was rocky to start due to a specialist that would ignore communication. We had to contact the individual's supervisor to get meetings scheduled. We eventually abandoned the project due to the expense quoted on a monthly basis. Note that we did not even receive the cost until after we began the implementation steps for this project. Traincaster is an LMS that we needed an outbound feed file to set up new/terminate accounts. We received similar experiences as above except with implemented this one.

The implementation of eTime was stressful. I believe the only reason it went as well as it did was that we had a former ADP employee as our HRIS at the time.

  • Attendance Counts
  • Clear Company
The interface with Attendance Counts was great and went very smoothly. We are just finishing the set up with Clear Company and the interface isn't going as smoothly. We have multi-level approval in our new hire template and the clear to ADP interface from the market place doesn't handle the multi-lever new hire template at all. We are having to do a workaround to make it work.

  • Performance management.
  • Compensation management.
Compensation management was a big fail. Performance Management seems to have to be re-written every year. I don't use it but I do interact with the EVP of HR and he has been very frustrated. Even small things like formatting errors when printing was ignored. We haven't had the time to finish the Onboarding module.
