Next Generation of ADP DataCloud Platform Makes People Analytics Smarter

ADP will increase its use of artificial intelligence on big data platform, become the first HCM vendor to deliver location-specific data insights in a native mobile app and provide new professional services.

ADP is No. 17 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list


Are employee absence rates tracking higher than expected? Are pay gaps a risk to retaining employees? Are staffing strategies impacting overtime? Since it launched in 2015, ADP DataCloud, the portfolio of data analysis tools for HCM, has been helping HR leaders and business executives answer questions such as these by applying data science and machine learning to ADP's rich set of employment data.

However, businesses are always looking for easier ways to manage their workforce, address strategic business challenges, and activate critical data insights across their organizations in a rapid and repeatable way. Starting at the end of 2017, the next generation of ADP DataCloud will help businesses accomplish this through:

  • AI-powered assistance and insights: Artificial intelligence will generate and push insights based on an organization's performance, often relative to ADP Benchmarks -- in other words, ADP DataCloud will now answer questions before they are asked. Machine learning algorithms will also study user behavior and proactively assist HR practitioners with everyday HR tasks such as creating and distributing reports.
  • Integrated mobile insights: Based on access credentials, managers and business executives will now get pushed critical insights and metrics for their teams, relevant to location, helping them make better decisions based on machine learning insights. These tailored insights can be delivered via phone or tablet through the ADP Mobile Solutions app or the re-designed ADP DataCloud experience for non-mobile devices.

Available immediately are also new professional services for applying data insights:

  • People Insights Professional Services: ADP now offers People Insights Professional Services, a consulting practice to help organizations apply insights and develop the business processes to support a data-driven culture. HR and business leaders will also have access to "bootcamp" training sessions to learn best practices for applying data to make more effective people decisions.

"By applying AI to an unmatched set of workforce data from businesses around the world, this next generation of ADP DataCloud can offer HR teams newer and faster insights that change the way they do their jobs," said Rich Wilson, senior vice president of product development for ADP DataCloud. "In the same way that virtual assistants like Siri or Alexa are changing consumer technology, the next generation of ADP DataCloud will work alongside HR professionals and executives, offering to assist them with everyday tasks and providing curated insights to help manage their employees more effectively than ever before."

ADP DataCloud uses anonymized data from over 95,000 clients and nearly 30 million employees so organizations can holistically understand the impact of their workforce on their bottom line and benchmark against real-time market conditions.

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.
