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.

Sage is great for the nonprofit community and management! It allows fund accounting and complex GL structures for payroll. The system is seamless and works well for large companies and enterprises as well.

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.

  • 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

  • The HR library needs to be updated and more user friendly.
  • The special reports are restrictive on information you can combine in a single report which defeats the purpose of customizing a report.

  • It is sometimes hard to identify parts of competency/compensation history. We built tables to store this data but it is not laid out well on the screen.
  • Sometimes, even when you tell the system to "Add to History" it doesn't update so there is history missing. This impacts someone that relies on history for troubleshooting and reports.

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

We were looking for a payroll service that could combine a time card service to reduce errors. RUN has done what we expected. Look out when setting your company up. I wasn't here for setup and found many errors on the company's W2s.

Sage HRMS was very cost effective for a non-profit. It does all that we needed as a company and more. It also allows us to handle payroll ourselves instead of outsourcing [it].

  • By combining Sage Abra with HrActions we have decreased our manual workload by 80%. Electronic forms have been a great asset.
