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.

Organizations still running their HR processes on PeopleSoft-like HCM suites will find SuccessFactors EC very attractive proposition to move to. However, if you organization business process are highly customized, proceed with caution. If you are coming from SAP on-premises product, it is highly recommended to discover what you may not be able to do with SuccessFactors EC.

Cons

  • Adding columns to a payroll on the fly could be made easier.
  • I would love to have a more robust Paid Time Off Tracking tool.

Alternatives Considered

I have only used an accounting software program. I was very hesitant because I've never used an outside source. Kind of scary letting go. But I talked to many colleagues that use different software so I finally felt comfortable going ahead and using ADP.

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