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

Paycom

I believe Paycom is well suited for any company with 25 or more employees. It will help companies with a larger employee base run more efficiently.As our employee base grows, Paycom will make it easy for our changing needs. We were worried about the transition over to Paycom, but with help from our representative, this process was easy.

Pros

  • Everything is clear and concise. It makes using the program very user-friendly.
  • For running payroll, each employee can be set up in a way to make running the next payroll smooth. Details can be set, including workers comp codes and pay rate, so that each employee is already customized. It helps running payroll be more efficient.
  • Help is always available. When state taxes or local taxes are changed, I can send them a copy of the notice and they will take care of it quickly.

  • We do business in all 50 states. This means we send employees to remote locations to perform services. Prior to using Paycom, the payroll tax process was a nightmare. Our accounting expenses were through the roof. Paycom eliminated this burden completely.
  • HR management was an afterthought for us prior to Paycom. This platform has enabled us to be a responsible employer by taking our employee recruiting, training and management seriously. We have eliminated outside HR consultants and hired a director of HR. We have significantly improved our employee recruiting while communication with our staff has never been better.
  • The implementation was a cakewalk. One day we decided to become a Paycom user and overnight the software was functioning. Almost zero internal technical resources needed to be involved.

Cons

  • None - it's be best $300 a month spent
Kristen Skoglund profile photo
  • The growth of Paycom has been fun to watch. However, with growth there are always growing pains. Although they are very efficient and the new representatives seem to be well trained, it would be nice to have a more consistent account representative. This position seems to change often.
  • On rare occasion I have been unable to access Paycom's server. (Due to lack of internet capabilities in our office or from my phone) I have tried to submit payroll verbally to my account representative and was unable to do so. I understand this is a security issue and I respect the process, but it would be nice to be able to "call it in" if need arises.

Implementing Paycom as our trusted HR/Payroll management company was extremely effortless and the transition was seamless.

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.

Return on Investment

  • The reports allow me to make comparisons as my business evolves.

  • Paycom helps us make every dollar count to sustain and improve the success of our organization. With our budgetary restrictions and time restraints, everyone wears multiple hats to get the job done. Paycom offers cost-effective payroll and human capital tools in one easy-to-use application.
