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

SuccessFactors Employee Central

It captures pretty much all employee information that you need. The org chart feature is a great feature. The employee self service and manager self service is good. It integrates well with other modules as well as third party applications (like our external attendance and leave management software), role based permissions.

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.

RUN ADP gave us the flexibility that QB did not. Using ADP also reduces the amount of forms and time necessary during the month of January.

This is the most cohesive system I've ever used and its ability to function well with various other software is unmatched.

Return on Investment

  • Payroll processing weekly takes 10 minutes a week - max!
  • It helps to eliminate any payroll miscalculations - if it is set up correctly there won;t be mistakes because the software does it for you :)
Rob White profile photo
  • I feel it's certainly had a positive ROI. No need for multiple systems with multiple duplicate data input.
  • Streamlines and tracks the entire employment journey from hiring, data maintenance, performance tracking, job transitions, pay, etc.
