ADP RUN

RUN is good for companies that don't have a dedicated team for payroll and human resources. Everything you need can be found within the platform, including recruiting, forms and templates. If you don't want to take the time to add employees to the system, you can simply enter their name and email and turn it over to them to enter their info. Employees have access to their check stubs and can adjust their taxes, etc. on their own, saving the employer time and overhead. I don't believe that the platform is ideal for companies who have zero experience with payroll, as I believe having a dedicated representative for questions is more beneficial in those scenarios, but anyone who has done it for a few years should find the platform ideal and user-friendly.

Pros

  • Special payrolls are simple to run for bonus checks.
  • Reports for payroll deductions allows for quick processing.
  • Garnishments are paid directly just like taxes.

  • The layout is clean and straightforward. When our company began using Paycom I missed the initial orientation but I was so pleased when I realized how simple the interface is and that I was able to quickly figure things out on my own without having to bother HR!
  • One of my favorite features of Paycom is Batch Approvals. Whether it's requesting time off or approving time cards, Batch Approvals are simple and time saving! I also love that I get notifications when people put in a time request. Personally, I don't need to log in every day, so it is helpful to have that notice in my inbox letting me know there are approvals waiting!
  • It is so easy to make adjustments with Paycom. Since my team isn't always in the office and is often filming at different locations, every now and then someone on the team might forget to clock in or out. Initially I was worried about that being a hassle to fix but when I realized how quick and easy it was to make corrections to time punches I was so relieved! Now I don't worry about having another "to-do" on my list if someone forgets to clock in because I know it will only take me a minute to correct!

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.

  • Just staying on-top of trends within HR.
  • Continually training of internal teams.
  • More solution based selling.

Alternatives Considered

We did switch to a PEO (not ADP) and the cost was just too prohibitive for a company our size and so we were glad to be able to switch back and ADP gave us a generous offer to make the move back to RUN. I have also looked at local companies but not just not confident that they can get the job done.

Before Paycom our company was using Time Force. It was a decent system but I remember having to contact payroll or HR to help me or make adjustments. I remember when we switched software thinking "ugh, now I have to adjust to a new system" but things have been so much smoother across the board since we started using Paycom, I love it!

Return on Investment

  • It is positive because it is cost-effective.
  • RUN is also very efficient and takes me very little time to use.
  • It is like having my own payroll department in store with me. I can ask questions anytime which saves me both time and money.

  • Paycom is worth the price.
  • HR can focus on other tasks.
  • User-friendly.
