ADP RUN

RUN by ADP is perfect, in my opinion, for any size of company. Whether you have 5 employees or 500 employees. I feel that RUN by ADP will meet your needs and help make processing payroll as smooth as possible. Using RUN by ADP is a huge time saver for me. I love how easy it is to add new employees. I work at a company that is experiencing big growth and I am grateful for how easy it is to add new employees. I wish RUN by ADP was more transparent about the cutoff times to process payroll timely. It would be very nice to know what is the latest I could process payroll to have it be processed on time

Ascentis Payroll

Ascentis Payroll is well suited for small companies where there is minimal audit/review that needs to happen. The system is something that has to be audited regularly. Also may be a good solution for an organization that has a well versed Payroll MANAGER, versus a Payroll Administrator that may require some guidance.

Pros

  • Easy to modify employee information, wages and deductions
  • Has built in calculators for taxes and deductions which is super helpful
  • From start to finish, it only take a few clicks and my payroll is processed and complete.

Cons

  • Do not have any complaints yet
Eric Torres profile photo
  • Custom reports: not user friendly or intuitive and have to call support every time and they are not the most trained to be able to assist
  • Taxes: A lot of back and forth with the Tax team and they make the ownership on the employer without providing much support
  • Not all items flow from Ascentis HR to Ascentis Payroll so there are many duplicate manual additions to record.
  • All updates have to be entered into HR before it flows to Payroll system. If update made in Payroll system, it will not flow over to HR system.

Paychex worked a lot easier and their representatives knew the system in and out. Any issues were easily resolved and if a solution required time, they would always find a way to help the customer versus having the customer try to figure out what a solution is. This can be rather frustrating when you are an administrator and are not the subject matter expert
