ADP Streamline Payroll

I think that if the sales staff were more knowledgeable on the product they are selling you and were less worried about making a sale then perhaps I would have had a better experience and would have kept them longer than a couple of months.

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 Payroll

  • I liked the notification features of the payroll module, which helped ensure, that payroll was processed in a timely manner without missing any deadlines.
  • The features in the payroll module seem effective to ensure that no accidental erroneous data entry can take place by a payroll administrator.
  • The CRS system allowed us to generate consolidated payroll summaries for all of our foreign sales office which were very beneficial and useful for our Finance Department

Cons

ADP Streamline Payroll

  • Training was almost non existent when I was using the service. It was easy to figure out but I could have benefitted from some detailed training to help me better use the system and all its functionality.
  • I'm not sure this is anything ADP Streamline can fix because of time differences and such but it was very much like I was on an island waiting for messages in a bottle. I would upload and it would take sometimes more than a day to get a response.
  • The process was very manual when I was using the system. I did all my payroll work off ADP Streamline and basically used it to upload and relied on the rep to enter everything correctly. I felt like I had less control than I would like. I would have preferred to have some control over what was being uploaded and entered.

Patriot PAY

  • Apart from pre-funded, the four-day timeline for direct deposit has been the toughest part for me when small businesses want to pay their employees faster (quick turn-around times).
  • No other complaints from me. I am really impressed with Patriot PAY.

ADP Streamline Payroll

I can't really answer this question as I was the user of ADP Streamline but had no input in the choosing of ADP Streamline.

Patriot PAY

My early experience with Gusto was exceptional...then the wheels started falling off. I won't go into the details but I lost a couple payroll clients due to their errors and was on the verge of losing more. That coupled with massive fee increases made it necessary to find another solution. I spent three months researching/testing options. In the end, Patriot was the obvious choice due to its capability and affordability.

Return on Investment

ADP Streamline Payroll

  • Decreased employee efficiency
  • Heavier work load to correct the things that didn't go right
  • Double entry for not receiving the proper product

Patriot PAY

  • My market niche is small religious non-profits--a group not known for being well funded. That means I have to operate on a slim margin. Prior to switching to Patriot I was on the verge of being squeezed out of the payroll prep business. My then-current provider was about to raise their fees....again. I had been with them for about three years during which time their wholesale fee had already almost doubled and another huge bump was going to mean I would be paying almost 150% more than when I began with them. The quality of Patriot's service coupled with their affordable fee structure made it possible for me to stay in the game.
