ADP Streamline Payroll

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

TriNet

As I mentioned before, I think that TriNet provides a number of benefits to small companies who want to be as competitive with large companies as they can. Better benefits for small companies through the PEO relationship, compliance support for companies with employees in multiple states, an advisor to ensure compliance around hiring and firing and an endless number of reports.

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.

  • Last year TriNet launched a new website and it has definitely made a difference. It is much easier to navigate the site now and find what you need both as an Admin or an Employee.
  • TriNet also provides a suite of benefits and services that is helpful for small companies with a 1-2 person HR team.

Cons

  • ADP Streamline billing is slow to react to company changes. Hence incorrect invoices from ADP Streamline were issued and it took a very long time to get their billing department to correct these and issue credit notes.
  • In the payroll system I missed not being able to obtain a per country headcount and payroll numbers. Once payroll is processed it goes directly into an archive and is not easily viewable. It would be nice to have more visibility of personnel and payroll data.

  • TriNet is always open to hearing our feedback. One area that we would like to see improved is the overlap of a new hire and a pay cycle closing. We have to remember to make sure that an employee gets paid via a special payroll if they started after a pay cycle has already closed.

Without knowing what the competitors offer I can only give a limited opinion.

It is getting expensive for the quality. The systems continue to disappoint.

Again, big kudos for the new website. So much easier to navigate and it feels with the times. Technology is so important these days and having a platform that is easy to use both as an Admin and as an Employee is very important to me. I rarely get an email from an employee saying they can't find something or need help navigating the site and that says a lot.

Trinet was easy as I recall. The President and I were able to set everything up and get started right away.

I can't be specific because I don't know. We interviewed three other companies, two of which were comparable in terms of the breadth of services. It came down to the people we talked with. TriNet was transparent and refrained from criticizing their competitors. Of the companies who could provide everything we were looking for, TriNet seemed the most trustworthy

Return on Investment

  • I cannot comment on this

  • Obviously having your team for payroll purposes has allowed us to reduce internal staff slightly.
  • Having several healthcare options is a benefit to our employees.
  • HR Passport is a good tool to keep employee data current.
  • HR compliance in multiple states is helpful.
