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

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

  • The software platform is incredibly easy to learn and user-friendly.
  • The cost is surprisingly better than other payroll processing platforms, especially considering what is included and the longstanding national reputation of ADP.
  • The simplicity, automation, and available templates and reports are incredibly helpful to our growing organization.

  • 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

  • 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

I have only used an accounting software program. I was very hesitant because I've never used an outside source. Kind of scary letting go. But I talked to many colleagues that use different software so I finally felt comfortable going ahead and using ADP.
