ADP RUN

I am impressed with how fast it is to input the information in for payroll. I am always busy so I have to do it fast. I also like the way it tells you how much payroll and taxes are before you press the done button. It allows me to know exactly how much I need for payroll.I really haven't come across a scenario where it is less appropriate.

BambooHR

Bamboo HR does a really good job at the things that it is supposed to do. As a standard HRIS it is very clean, modern and intuitive. It is great for a small/mid sized company that doesn't need a ton of bells and whistles but just needs a system of record. It may be less appropriate for larger organizations who need very detailed reporting and analytics to pull from.

Pros

  • Easy to manage, access reports and enter data.
  • Easy to make changes to employee files (i.e. wage information, employee address, employee withholding)
  • The interface is nicely intuitive... makes entering hours and completing payroll smooth & uncomplicated.

  • Requesting time off- it is as easy as a click of one button to request time off within the system. It is easy to follow and syncs up with your calendar so not only you, but the rest of the company knows when people are out of the office and for what reason
  • Storing and organizing your personal employment information- It is very simple to find your employee information under the My Info tab. You can see the exact dates of promotions, job title changes, salary changes, etc. Makes it very simple to keep track of your records.
  • Storing important documents- you can easily upload specific company documents in a secure folder, where your employees can access them whenever they need to. It serves as a centralized location to store relevant information as opposed to having the documents stored in a random, unprotected folder. Very easy to navigate and find the relevant information.

Alternatives Considered

Run is much easier to implement and maintain than Workforce Now, especially if you don't have a dedicated payroll manager. If you do have a dedicated payroll and HR department there are more advanced features in Workforce Now. We returned from Workforce Now to RUN because of the simplicity and ease of use for a company of our size.

BambooHr was selected by me because it was at the company before I started work here. However, I have used Bamboo for the past four and a half years and have been very happy. I love that it's user friendly and has a wonderful interface. It makes it fun to work on the platform because it has a clean interface and is not bulky.

Casey Eddy profile photo
  • It has enabled my company to accurately track employee time off and maintain a system.
  • We're a small company, so having a central tool has made it less of a burden on our managing partner.
  • Company employees are well informed and the tool provides a much better experience to find out info needed.
