ADP RUN

It helps save time. We spend 5 minutes a week and all of our payroll worries are taken care of.

I would really recommend it to other companies. Especially to companies like ours, startups, 10+ employees. CakeHR gives you a good overview of all the teams, days off, and you have all the data about employees in one system.

Pros

ADP RUN

  • The key strength of ADP's Run is the simplicity of their web portal. Site navigation is easy thanks to large Icons and clearly described links. Every feature seems to be accessible within 2 to 3 clicks.
  • ADP's support is very helpful. I have called in a few times and the wait is never long to reach a support rep. The support has been able to address any issues I've had in a timely manner and will stay on the line to walk through steps until I am comfortable with them.
  • The sales reps are great. They did a great job of walking through the features and comparing them to my current provider. They came onsite to help with the transition to ADP, and even came to walk us through the first couple payrolls to make sure all the steps were understood.

  • Super easy and usable system.
  • Great customer service; listens to feedback and does something with it, answers really quickly.
  • A good overview per team for managers.
  • An app available for every employee to quickly arrange a request.

Cons

ADP RUN

  • Something very small is not being able to type in certain areas. You have to select from the drop down instead of being able to type in the first few letters and have it selected. This would help streamline everything a bit more.

  • Not all features for an HR system are available in CakeHR, but they are working on it to improve and expand

Alternatives Considered

ADP RUN

I prefer Run to QuickBooks in all aspects except price. However, the quality of the ADP product is worth the premium if the customer can afford it. Run is very comparable to Workforce Now in its core function but is obviously less robust in terms of functionality.

This is the first HR system we have used in our company.

Return on Investment

ADP RUN

  • RUN by ADP has been a positive addition to our operation because it allows us to process payroll (and pay the appropriate taxes) easily and simply.
Doug Fish profile photo

CakeHR

  • The system shows us all days off and overtime, so we can manage this and know everything is like agreed in the contract.
  • A simple and affordable system with room to grow.
