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.

For clients looking for a communications portal this is a perfect fit. However, for clients looking to do online enrollment it is still lacking key features that other systems like Employee Navigator offers.

Pros

  • Easy to modify employee information, wages and deductions
  • Has built in calculators for taxes and deductions which is super helpful
  • From start to finish, it only take a few clicks and my payroll is processed and complete.
  • The bundled reporting works awesome for us, but it has a wealth of reporting options and they are also easy to use.

  • Provides a secure 24/7 availability of information, forms and various information we used to keep in public folders in MS Exchange, but that platform wasn't always available off-site
  • Provides resources and full campaigns for wellness and other employee living situations that are pushed out to our staff on a predetermined schedule.
  • Provide us a platform to improve communications with our employees for current events and news as well as an archival of older information that we can refer back to when needed

Cons

  • It really provides all we need and more.
Laura Virtue profile photo
  • The onboarding of employees with benefits selection is not quite complete as it pertains to full integrations with carrier feeds and EDI solutions for HIPAA 834 Transactions
  • The ultimate solution would be to integrate with payroll systems such as ADP, PayChex or Paylocity. This would eliminate the need to input and update data in multiple systems
  • Integration to HR systems like Oracle or other HR platforms would be a bonus

User adoption is low within the client base that we have implemented this at and unless it can offer full EDI capabilities we will not be able to move away from Employee Navigator or Plan Source solutions

Alternatives Considered

While I still use QuickBooks for other accounting and bookkeeping uses, RUN was a lot more user-friendly when it came to payroll. It was cheaper and I felt that the help/assistance was much better, that if I did run into any issues, I would have an answer very quickly.

We actually use HRconnection with a select few clients and use Employee Navigator, Plan Source, and ThinkHR because our clients or the carriers offered them to us as an online enrollment or training options

Return on Investment

  • Definitely positive. It allows me to use my time better.
  • With more time on my hands, I'm able to utilize my time in a more efficient way. I'm getting more things done faster.
  • I'm able to deal with more projects and help out other departments.

  • Having the capability to offer our clients this resource has helped us win new business. However, once we implement it for clients they often struggle to get user adoption. This can be for various reasons, but mostly because the commitment of the client management does not always reinforce the usage of the resources within the site
