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

I recommend it to all my clients who like to keep their money and payments under their purview. This also allows you to assign roles for others so you can have someone help you manage and run payroll.

It could use a mobile-friendly interface. Other than that it's a simple layout and non-cluttered which allows you to get done what you need to get done. No unnecessary dodads or distractions.

Alternatives Considered

Paycom was very good - but RUN is just so simple! Granted when using Paycom, I was processing payroll for some 50 persons. My ADP RUN experience is for a client that has only 3 employees. But RUN is very simple and straightforward - simple to use and setup. I would continue to use ADP RUN just because it is simpler, and provides mobile access.

I liked patriot, but I found it to be more confusing than Square and took me too much time to setup. I setup Square Payroll in about an hour. I would also say the Square interface made more sense to me. I also like how Square offers more things like benefits, etc. that can be added on.
