Overall Satisfaction with APS

We are using the payroll function and the HR function. We are using it across the entire organization and APS OnLine has allowed us to own our data better. It has been a very useful tool for our operations, payroll, and administrative staff.
  • The report function has become a critical tool in our daily life. APS Online has really created a user friendly system to run reports and create reports.
  • Customer Service -- every connection with APS Online has been great! We use the chat feature, submitted tasks, and contacted our manager. They are quick at resolving our issues and are so warm.
  • New Hire wizard -- makes hiring a breeze!
  • I wish the employee search bar was always open at top so I didn't have to go into the employee consul to search for an employee.
  • As much as I love the report manager, I wish the report builder would allow me to have access to ALL of my information to write a report. As it stands with the 5 main topics, I may have to run two reports to get the information that I need.
  • ACA reporting is helpful but I wish the FTE report would downloadable as a CSV or Excel file.
  • We are about to start offering benefits and APS OnLine has made the transition so much easier--I feel they understand my needs and have thought through how to help us be compliant.
  • ADP
The boutique feeling and the great customer service are worth its weight in gold! APS OnLine is also financially a great decision. All around, a perfect way for our size of company to go. We haven't looked back since!
I would make sure to be very clear about what past history information you needed imported.

I have been thrilled with the Customer Service. I am giving the attention that gives me the confidence that I have a team behind me that wants me to succeed. I love the boutique feeling with APS. I feel like I've joined an exclusive club. We as an organization haven't looked back!
