HR on the Go: ADP Mobile Solutions App Usage Soars Beyond 10 Million and Growing Fast

Users perform more than 1,000 HR transactions per second.

Organizations know that employees want technology that works at the office much like it does in their personal lives. That means they want to securely access even the most complex systems like benefits and payroll any time and from anywhere. The proof — the ADP Mobile Solutions app just passed 10 million individual employees using the app across 175 countries.

The growth in usage means the ADP app supports an average of 1,000 HR transactions per second — everything from accessing digital pay statements and Form W-2s, to approving timecards. This has made it one of the most downloaded free business apps in the Apple App Store, and the most downloaded app for human capital management (HCM).

"Since we launched the ADP Mobile Solutions app in 2011, our UX and design teams have worked to make this app rich with data, yet simple and secure. We want both employees and managers to use this as their main go-to for everything HR," said Stuart Sackman, corporate vice president, Global Product and Technology, ADP. "We are so proud to see the ADP Mobile Solutions app frequently rank as the number one free business app in the Apple App Store and we will continue innovating to keep it that way!"

The ADP Mobile Solution app can be used by employees to manage their time and attendance, view pay statements in a fresh and interactive way, view Forms W-2, receive and give employee rewards, manage 401(k) accounts, access benefits, and more. Managers can approve timecards, monitor time off, and leverage ADP data and insight to help provide recommendations that impact employees' lives.

Organizations know that engaged employees are good for business. In fact, a recent study shows that business units with high employee engagement have 21 percent higher productivity1. Therefore, as hr executives look for ways to increase employee engagement, they need to take into account that employees are increasingly mobile and global. One way to increase engagement in mobile and global employee populations is to consider mobile solutions apps. Globally, mobile devices and connections in 2016 grew to 8 billion, up from 7.6 billion in 2015. Even with that, only 20 percent of companies deploy their hr and employee productivity solutions on mobile apps.

"When employees are able to access valuable personal information anytime, anywhere, they can stay engaged when and how they want. As a CHRO, I'm so pleased that we are able to help employers and employees around the world make more proactive and timely people decisions," said Dermot O'Brien, corporate vice president and chief human resources officer, ADP.

The ADP Mobile Solutions app is currently available to clients using any of the following ADP solutions: Payroll, time and attendance, employment tax, benefits, retirement and/or ADP paycard solutions. The app is available for download on digital phones and tablets through the Apple App Storefor Apple devices and Google Play for Android devices at http://adp.com/gomobile.

The Future of Pay is Here! New ADP Innovation Helps Employers Tailor Payments to the Preferences of All Employees

Wisely Pay by ADP Combines Global Cash Card and ADP Capabilities to Create Best-in-Class Payment Offering

Originally Published by ADP.

Changes in talent demographics, working arrangements and technology are impacting how employees need and want to be paid. To meet these shifts, paycards and digital accounts are increasingly becoming attractive options, allowing employees to access their pay how and when they want. Additionally, employers now have the opportunity to take an active interest in the financial wellbeing of their workers to help them get the most out of their pay.

ADP is continuing its innovation momentum by revolutionizing the way people are paid by introducing Wisely Pay by ADP. Wisely Pay is the next step in ADP's constant evolution to put clients and their workers at the forefront of macro trends shaping the employment landscape, including the growing number of freelance individuals.

"The world of work is changing and our clients look to us as the market leader in payments, to help them better engage with their entire workforce," said Doug Politi, president of Compliance Solutions at ADP. "Wisely Pay is leading the way people get paid in the future as a true bank alternative, with innovative services like instant pay, savings, digital wallet, and other financial management and wellness features that are better aligned with the evolving workforce."

The functionality of digital accounts, including paycards, and ease of access to funds have made them particularly popular among Millennials. According to a recent report commissioned by ADP, almost half of Gen Z (47 percent) and nearly a third of Millennials (31 percent) would turn down a job if they were unable to choose their method of pay. Additionally, this report revealed that 47 percent of Millennials and 66 percent of Gen Z have used a pre-loaded payment card in the last 12 months.

Wisely Pay is the first offering resulting from ADP's acquisition of Global Cash Card and provides the administrative tools and support to enable employers of any size, industry and workforce blend of full-time, part-time and/or freelance workers to enjoy:

  • Advanced technologies: Best-in-class experiences for cardholders and administrators from ADP's in-house digital payments platform, built by Global Cash Card and ADP's award-winning Instant Funding APIs.
  • Pay flexibility: Wisely Pay offers multiple ways to receive, spend, and manage money, including fully electronic options like peer-to-peer transfers, instant pay, and mobile digital wallets by Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay® and Android Pay®.
  • Attracting and retaining talent: The multi-generational workforce places unique demands on employers and Wisely Pay helps satisfy the needs of workers by offering a banking alternative with numerous funding options, easy cash access, broad purchasing capability, ability to avoid paper check fees and modern financial management tools.
  • Peace of mind: With a 50-state electronic pay program, backed by market-leading expertise and experience in the regulatory landscape, employers can rely on ADP Compliance Solutions, advanced data security and single point-of-contact resolution for all employer support or cardholder issues (e.g. fraud prevention, dispute resolution).

The Wisely paycard will first be available to employers who select to offer sponsored accounts for employees in September 2018 in the United States.
