ADP Streamline Payroll

Make sure you understand exactly what ADP Streamline is before you purchase. And make sure you get a great rep!

Patriot PAY

Patriot PAY is well-suited to a company that has a 10-day window between the end of the pay period and the payday. The company size makes very little difference and it is easy to use for any company. It is also very progressive in development and improvement. If a company has a small window for turn-around, but fairly consistent payroll amounts (such as a lot of salary workers), Patriot PAY might also be a good fit for them.

Companies with tight turn-around times or payrolls that vary significantly in direct deposit amounts might have difficulty using Patriot PAY.

Pros

  • ADP Streamline works best if you have a great ADP rep on the other end for your payroll purposes. I had a fantastic rep who was very responsive.
  • The ease and security of the upload process makes things quick and easy. Especially when actually preparing the payroll for upload can be difficult.
  • The report running format when I was using ADP Streamline was extremely user friendly and easy to navigate.

  • Basic payroll--as good as anything else out there.
  • Tremendous value--not only is it a capable package but it's the cheapest I know of.
  • Customer service is exceptional.

Cons

  • ADP sales team should be more knowledgeable about the product they sell you
  • ADP employees should be more up to date on tax liabilities in different states
  • I think ADP should assign one contact person so you don't have to get a different person each time you need assistance

  • Honestly, I am very happy with Patriot. They recently raised their price but it is still a good value and I am very happy with their service.

Return on Investment

  • ADP Streamline was just a function to us so I can't really say it had a positive or negative effect on our business objectives. We went with Streamline because we already were with ADP. We didn't really shop.
  • Because of the great rep we had we were able to get a more positive response from our German staff to their pay. Before I came on board there were a lot of payroll errors which had an effect on staff morale. With help from the rep we were able to improve our accuracy and pay people correctly.

  • Using Patriot Pay has given me much more free time to run other aspects of my business.
  • The ease of running reports is very useful at the end of the year so that my accountant can easily look at my payroll costs, including taxes paid.
