ADP Mobile Solutions

What is ADP Mobile Solutions?

ADP Mobile Solutions is a self-service mobile app that lets employees access work records such as pay, schedules, timecards, retirement funds, benefits and calendars. Automatic Data Processing Inc. created the mobile app as an offshoot of its a popular ADP human capital management product.

ADP's mobile application lets both employees and managers view their net pay on their phones as well as current pay period details and pay statements from prior periods. The application, which can be accessed on Android smartphones and iPhones, also lets employees check other information related to core human resources (core HR), including paid time off accruals, spending accounts, personal profiles, job profiles, and company news and events.

For example, users can see balances for the year to date and access an original PDF pay statement, which can be emailed when applying for credit. They can also add notes to a timecard, update profile information and search for employees in a company directory.
