Adp payroll interface

We use ADP Payroll and have Epicor's ADP Interface. It works pretty
well for us. We had it customized a little by adding an extra pay type
code for overtime calculation. You'll have to determine how your "Pay
Rules" coincide with their program. I know Todd Caughey has said a few
times that their payroll rules are so unique they couldn't use the
interface. There are others who have written their own interface.
Which I don't think would be that hard to do if you have some
programming skills.

My only gripe with the interface is that a few times a year something
happens when the interface is trying to write the file that ADP uses.
It either hangs and has to be ended or Vantage quits. In either case
the data is lost and the batch has to be recreated and started over
from scratch. There is no recovery option if the write fails. At
Perspectives I talked with Joanne Eckenrode from Custom Programming
about the problem. She said she would consider looking at a fix for
it. If you haven't bought it yet, I would ask them about a data
recovery feature if the write fails. Tell them you won't buy it
without one :).

As far as Masterfiles goes, I don't think anything exists from Epicor,
but if you can figure out the format that ADP needs to import the data,
there are a variety of ways of getting it out of Vantage.

We will be going live with ADP Jan. 1, 2006. Are there interface
programs to download payroll masters from Vantage to ADP and download
employee information from their Masterfiles in Vantage to ADP? I know
I have seen questions in the group before regarding ADP. I have seen
questions regarding downloading payroll from Vantage to ADP. Is
Epicor's program OK, or did some of you use some other source/vendor?
Any help/advise/suggestions would be appreciated!
