Accounting Professionals and Developers Pick ADP for Best Human Resources and Payroll Solutions During the 2017 Accountex USA Conference and Expo

Accounting professionals continue to show their respect and appreciation for ADP® solutions. Most recently, thousands of them picked ADP for the 2017 AccountexTM USA User Favorite Awards for Best Human Resource (HR) and Payroll solutions. This is the second year we’ve been chosen for the HR user favorite award. This year, we outpaced 36 competitors for that distinction. The HR category is defined as “HR providers that assist an organization with regulatory compliance, but also make the process of managing employees much easier. From the hiring process to benefits enrollment, disciplinary action and even termination, all are covered in the HR solution showcase.” We also took the top prize for having the leading payroll solution, winning by a 62 percent margin and surpassing 55 competitors in the category. These awards are well-known and highly valued in accounting circles. Winners are chosen by users – perhaps the most important stakeholder of any technology solution – and by accounting professionals who recommend the solutions to their clients. Scoring is cumulative and...

A Welcome Return to ADP Eases Compliance, HR Burdens for Epitec

A Welcome Return to ADP Eases Compliance, HR Burdens for Epitec

Back in the early 2000s, Epitec, the national IT engineering and professional staffing firm based in Detroit, decided to part ways with ADP. Epitec was in the midst of a growth spurt and was seeking a payroll solution that could integrate with its expanding employee benefits platform. When we went to other competitors from a payroll standpoint, they were not able to deliver on the integration,” said Mark Ruma, the company’s chief architect of growth (and chief operating officer). “They weren’t able to deliver on the integration within their own system or the integration with our system. With the other payroll companies, it was not flawless. It was flawed.” So Epitec took another look at ADP. “The exciting part was that we could keep our custom software and integrate it with ADP’s payroll and it was all seamless,” Ruma said. “Because ADP has a system that is fully integrated with ours, the reporting has been an invaluable feature.” Read Epitec’s full story about their happy return to ADP.

SHRM: HR Takes a Holistic Approach to Designing Employee Wellness Programs

SHRM: HR Takes a Holistic Approach to Designing Employee Wellness Programs

SHRM just published a new article, Employers Take Wellness to a Higher Level that reported on the expanding mission of HR, and how companies are taking their responsibility for employee wellness further than ever before. Wellness programs have been a part of HR’s mission since the 1970s. Today, these programs are popular and growing: More than 9 in 10 organizations surveyed by the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP) offer at least one kind of wellness benefit. More than 3 in 5 have wellness budgets, with more than half expecting those budgets to increase in the next two years, the IFEBP report found. However, as Chris Ryan, Vice President of Strategic Advisory Services at ADP states in this comprehensive piece, employers must be cognizant of the various needs of employees at different life stages. While there are now more single employees than married ones in the workforce, Ryan said unmarried workers also have obligations that warrant paid time off and flexibility. To learn more about this holistic approach...

Integrations – What Every Broker Wants: BenefitsPro Highlights ADP Marketplace

Integrations – What Every Broker Wants: BenefitsPro Highlights ADP Marketplace

In a recent article published in BenefitsPro, the ADP Marketplace — ADP’s app store for HR technology integrations – was featured as a solution brokers should consider when looking to help clients integrate multiple HR databases including payroll, benefits, recruitment, etc. Payroll is another example of where multiple databases may have to exist. However, payroll providers are already working to address the problem of multiple databases by developing open API. For example, ADP has created its own App Store similar to Apple’s called the ADP Marketplace. ADP requires software companies to integrate via an API and meet specified requirements that ensure high quality and real-time synchronization of data. The ADP Marketplace is a cloud-based platform where developers and clients can access human capital management-related (HCM) open application programming interfaces (APIs) to integrate various employer- and employee-based solutions. For companies this means they can securely connect various applications to their ADP data and remove the hassle of inputting data manually or performing data imports.

Agemark Improves Data Accuracy and Decision Making with an Integrated Solution from ADP®

Agemark Improves Data Accuracy and Decision Making with an Integrated Solution from ADP®

Originally founded in 1987 as a renovator of historic buildings for reuse, Agemark quickly re-focused both its vision and its mission – to develop exceptional communities that focus on making a positive difference in the lives of seniors and their families. Today the company builds new construction to house its growing portfolio of senior-assisted living communities, with 700 employees working in more than a dozen senior living communities in six U.S. states. As Agemark grew, disparate business software solutions became part of the company’s landscape. While each function – payroll, human resources, finance and accounting – had the software it needed, management had a “must-have” of its own – access to integrated data across all functions that would help maximize informed decision making. Agemark made a strategic decision to implement a solution combining ADP Workforce Now® and Intacct – a leading provider of best-in-class cloud ERP software to improve data visibility and quickly transform data into useful information. Says Alicia Summers, assistant controller at Agemark, “having the data integrate...
