ROSELAND, N.J., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on its momentum as a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions, ADP ® today announced that more than 1,000 midsized organizations have selected ADP Workforce Now ® Comprehensive Services. This outsourced HCM offer combines the proven ADP Workforce Nowplatform with ADP human resources specialists to help support the full scope of an employer's workforce management needs – from recruiting and employee benefits administration to time and attendance, payroll and talent management. Last month, ADP unveiled the next generation of its ADP Workforce Now platform for midsized businesses (50-999 employees). The enhanced platform gives midsized employers more sophisticated tools to manage their workforce and run their business more efficiently. Key features include an all-in-one HCM platform, multi-lingual and multi-currency capabilities, a more intuitive user interface, and more robust recruiting and reporting tools. The enhanced version of ADP Workforce Now, paired with ADP's Comprehensive Services, delivers a flexible, integrated HCM offer to help midsized companies meet their human resources challenges so they can focus on finding, growing and retaining their best talent. "Midsized businesses often have the same human resources challenges as large companies, but lack the resources to cost-effectively manage these tasks," said Maryanne Moffo, Senior Vice President of Comprehensive Services for Major Account Services at ADP. " ADP Workforce Now Comprehensive Services empowers our clients to focus on the strategic workforce management activities that drive businesses forward while ADP takes care of most core administrative tasks. We've seen an increased demand for our outsourced offerings as midsized employers seek new ways to gain a competitive advantage in today's challenging economy." One key area where ADP Workforce Now Comprehensive Services provides a measurable advantage for midsized companies is legislative and regulatory compliance. A recent study from the ADP Research InstituteSM found that while 81% of midsized employers are confident they are compliant with payroll tax laws and regulations, 33% incurred fines, penalties or lawsuits related to non-compliance in the last year. As part of ADP Workforce Now Comprehensive Services, ADP payroll, benefits and human resources specialists provide expertise to help companies avoid these unwanted expenses. "Initially, ADP Workforce Now Comprehensive Services helped me maintain a high level of service while reducing HR operational costs," said Lou Cimini, Vice President of Human Resources for the Americas at Samsonite Corporation, the world's largest travel luggage company. "Four years later, as my company pursues rapid growth with two acquisitions in the last 90 days, ADP enables me to seamlessly integrate new employees into our workforce with minimal impact on HR costs."
