Likelihood to Recommend

ADP RUN

ADP RUN seems to be very well suited towards smaller businesses. The site is simple to use and has plenty of features for handling payroll and basic HR functions. I think the system would be a bit cumbersome to use with a larger number of employees (25+), unless you opted to use their time and attendance program.

I believe an agency with under 100 employees can probably get away with any system, but Sage Abra definitely supports agencies with larger staff better than some.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Custom fields/screens are available giving you that ability to build the database as you need it and making it easier for the user to follow.
  • Interface between HrActions as well as the Power PCS add -in. This allows data to be current without manual intervention.
  • Easy to read screens. Everything is right there...there is no "hidden" data.

Cons

  • It really provides all we need and more.
Laura Virtue profile photo
  • The reporting function is not user friendly unless you are skilled in Crystal.
  • There are several screens that need to be updated when changes are made e.g. if you make a change in benefits, you have to go through a few screens in payroll to make sure everything went through.
  • There are small hiccups that happen within the system that are not explained. e.g. something doesn't calculate correctly and after researching with support help there is no reason given for the mistake, just a hiccup.

I do not work with this software anymore, and I am not involved with the renewal of it. However, if I were, I would still suggest using it unless something better was introduced

Alternatives Considered

I have used both RUN by ADP and Xero Payroll and the ADP solution is a bit more robust and user-friendly.
