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.

Square Payroll

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

Personally, at other positions, I have used several other products. ADP is superior! Fantastic interface& super easy to use. Having had to train other on several platforms, this one was a very simple to show and effortless to teach to the others I was training. It is always the first company I recommend for payroll because they are local, great to work with and they offer such a versatile range of processing options.

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.
