ADP RUN

ADP RUN seems to be very well suited towards smaller businesses. The site is simple to use and has plenty of features for handling payroll and basic HR functions. I think the system would be a bit cumbersome to use with a larger number of employees (25+), unless you opted to use their time and attendance program.

Great for independent person looking to pay a nanny/daycare provider without adding a huge cost to my bottom line.

  • Super easy interface - honestly running payroll couldn't be easier on their site.
  • Incredible customer service - VERY knowledgeable, professional and friendly. They will walk you through anything you need to do on the site and understand payroll, tax and benefit issues.
  • Tax filing and payments and year-end paperwork for 1099 contractors and W-2s. They make it so easy.

Cons

  • I found adding a new employee a little complicated
Anna Cummins profile photo
  • Perhaps some quick checklist of what to do at tax time. That seemed confusing as to what SurePayroll was doing vs. my responsibility.

Alternatives Considered

I have used both RUN by ADP and Xero Payroll and the ADP solution is a bit more robust and user-friendly.

SurePayroll was the product being used here when I started. I was surprised how simple it was to use and appreciate all the reports it produces.

Return on Investment

  • It is positive because it is cost-effective.
  • RUN is also very efficient and takes me very little time to use.
  • It is like having my own payroll department in store with me. I can ask questions anytime which saves me both time and money.
