ROSELAND, N.J., Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP, a leading global technology company providing human capital management (HCM) solutions, today announced that NelsonHall, a global business process outsourcing and IT services analyst firm, recognized the company as a Leader in its 2019 Next Generation HCM Technology Evaluation & Assessment Tool (NEAT) report.

NelsonHall's NEAT is an evaluation tool buyers can use to evaluate vendors at the onset of the vendor selection process. The scoring is based on a combination of analyst assessment and feedback from interviewing vendor clients. Positioning as a "Leader" is based on vendors that exhibit both a high ability relative to their peers to deliver immediate benefit and a high capability relative to their peers to meet client future requirements.

"ADP has consistently shown a strong commitment to innovation, supported by leadership vision and a defined roadmap with steady investments in HCM solutions," said Pete Tiliakos, principal analyst at NelsonHall. "The company is focused on bringing to market next-generation HCM capabilities and digital enablers, integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) into its solutions. For these reasons, along with its predictive analytics and sophisticated benchmarking, we identified ADP as a Leader for the second year in a row."

"We are proud to be recognized by NelsonHall once again as a leader in next generation HCM technology," said Don Weinstein, corporate vice president of global product and technology at ADP. "ADP has a deep history of designing for people and introducing innovative solutions that have transformed the world of work. Through continuous advancement, we have built a comprehensive portfolio of cloud-based solutions that span the employee lifecycle, with the ability to be tailored to all market segments from small business to global enterprise."

ADP was recognized for its portfolio of extended HR BPaaS services, which encompass HCM technology, HR outsourcing services, and HR transformation consulting and advisory support, including process optimization and change management services. NelsonHall also recognized the company's extensive multi-country payroll experience with capability to support across 140 countries and its open HCM approach through its ADP Marketplace, which allows clients to leverage a broad range of service providers and applications.

In addition to ADP's Leadership position in the NelsonHall Next Generation HCM Technology NEAT, NelsonHall has also recognized ADP as a Leader in its latest Next Generation Payroll and RPO NEAT reports.
