ADP RUN

We have only run small payrolls (2-5) employees, but we do run multiple company codes. It was very easy to get started and has been even easier to maintain. Before RUN, my tiny payroll was a beast - calculating checks, taxes, making tax deposits, preparing W2s, etc., all of which was very time-consuming and I dreaded doing payroll all together, not to mention the tax implications if I messed something up. Now with RUN, a few simple clicks and both my companies payrolls are run, money is withdrawn from our account in a timely manner and direct deposits are always made on time or early. We absolutely love the system.

It is a very advanced system and has a lot of functionality. This can be great obviously but sometimes I feel like some scenarios, a simpler system would be perfectly sufficient. It is also important to use the training you have for the admin users, so that everyone has a better understanding of how to change preferences.

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.
  • The bundled reporting works awesome for us, but it has a wealth of reporting options and they are also easy to use.

  • The ability to restrict and customise the security preferences to ensure the system remains standardised.
  • The phone customer support is good because you can get through to someone when it is really urgent.
  • A lot of the interface is customisable as well, so you can change the look and feel yourself.

  • It is very difficult to understand each individual preference as there are so many.
  • The setup is not very user friendly as it is so complex.

Alternatives Considered

While I still use QuickBooks for other accounting and bookkeeping uses, RUN was a lot more user-friendly when it came to payroll. It was cheaper and I felt that the help/assistance was much better, that if I did run into any issues, I would have an answer very quickly.
