ADP, the Roseland-based $11 billion provider of payroll services, human capital management solutions and benefits administration, held a live virtual event Sept. 30, 2013, to unveil new and enhanced technologies.
Don Weinstein, Senior Vice President Product Management at ADP characterized the event as “part of an ongoing conversation with clients to demonstrate how ADP builds platforms that address businesses’ most pressing issues: talent recruitment, management and retention, business intelligence, and operations.”
In the human capital management arena, the company introduced a tool to help recruiters keep the potential employee pipeline full by staying in touch with active applicants and identifying passive ones. ADP Recruiting Management is a unified platform that helps clients better manage the end-to-end talent acquisition process by engaging social and mobile users, enabling intelligent candidate sourcing and increasing collaboration, ADP said.
ADP also announced the release of a tablet version of its Mobile Solutions app, providing employees mobile access to key functions including pay, hours and benefits. The app is already used by nearly 1.4 million workers across 47,000 clients in 35 countries and in 27 languages, ADP said in a statement.
In addition, the company has upgraded its enterprise tools ADP Vantage HCM (for large employers) and ADP Workforce Now (for midsize firms). ADP says these products allow midsize and large businesses to handle everything from basic payroll to managing the provisions of the Affordable Care Act to building an all-in-one human capital management solution.
Improvements include updates to the mobile app for both employers and employees; increased access to the ADP Document Cloud, which improves record management in ADP’s secure environment; enhancements to the Global Human Resources System of Record, which streamlines international human resource processes for U.S.-based multinational companies, providing multilingual and multicurrency capabilities; and the inclusion of ADP Analytics, which helps put human resources data to use for examining trends and determining risk exposure.
The company also announced it would open a second Innovation Lab. The space will be dedicated to technology development and located in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, part of Silicon Alley. This will be the second Innovation Lab that ADP has launched. The company’s Roseland headquarters is home to the first one, which opened in 2012.
“Our first Innovation Lab has really helped us accelerate the pace of technical innovation and creative solutions,” stated Mike Capone, corporate vice president of product development at ADP. “Our goal for the expansion of the Innovation Labs is to have highly specialized and creative teams focused on quickly incubating and delivering capabilities that will dramatically increase the value of our HCM platforms for clients,” he said.
