Ventana Research, a leading market research firm, has identified ADP as a Leader in its Value Index for Workforce Management 2022 Assessment. Ranked among the top three providers overall, ADP additionally earned top ranking for the Product Capability and Vendor Validation categories, owing to its advanced technology, distinct service model and market presence. ADP’s ranking within the assessment recognizes ADP’s ability to help businesses better manage their workforce through data-driven insights and intuitive solution design.

“ADP has been at the center of transforming human resources from a back-office, administrative function to a major source of strategic advantage,” said Steve Goldberg, vice president and research director, HCM at Ventana Research. “ADP’s ranking as a Value Index Leader is a result of its continued commitment to providing innovative workforce management solutions, complemented by high-impact toolsets and services and their client-centric approach. Well done ADP.”

It’s our goal to support our clients, from small business to global enterprise, with technology and expertise they can count on to help them succeed and grow.”

The Ventana Value Index for Workforce Management is based on extensive market and product research into how well vendors’ offerings address clients’ workforce management needs. The research evaluates software across seven different product and customer experience-focused categories.

The Capability category assesses vendors’ products across a broad range of workforce management capabilities including workforce operations and management needs, scheduling, absence management, activity and task management, analytics, time and attendance support, timeclock support, and mobile and collaboration-specific support, among others. The Validation category assesses the vendor’s ability to support a client through the journey of working in workforce management with its products, including leadership, processes, and systems, and more.
