We use RUN as our sole payroll administration. We do not use the HR portion, as our company is small enough that we do this in house. We love the ease of use and being able to run our payroll the day before payday. We use it across the whole US side of the company.
  • Ease of use.
  • Full payroll admin. Submitting tax reports and payments on our behalf.
  • Great tracking of PTO and sick time.
  • Customer service hours are great.
  • When there is an issue you have to call to fix it.
If you are a small business and need payroll support, ADP's RUN is a great solution. It is easy to use so it will not take time away from other company functions, anyone can use it (doesn't have to be a payroll accountant or even an accounting). Customer service is always there to help and are knowledgeable in all things payroll and tax.
Email support can be slow; it can take a few days to hear a response. Support is knowledgeable.
Wait times when you call in can get long, but if you call in first thing in the morning, wait times are so much shorter than in the afternoon.

We currently use RUN for whole company, but we use it differently in the UK compared to the US. Those is the US have an augmented view of RUN, more of a service center to view your pay, taxes, and how much is taken out for benefits. As for those in the UK, they use it to track their hours, submit pay stubs, and apply for vacation.
  • Easy View Dashboard.
  • Easy to view trends.
  • Quick payment breakdown.
  • Visibility.
  • The work perks opens up a different site. I wish they were integrated.
Like I have said previously, our companies use the RUN app differently - I would assume it is appropriate for most companies. We use it for our small office in the US, as well as our larger portion of our company in the UK. When it comes down to it, I believe you can demo out ADP.
I did not have to utilize the support team through RUN yet. So I have yet to experience the support team from ADP.
The sales process had already happened before I had signed on and I was not a decision maker when it come to this. HR here has not had to contact the support team.

Bi-Weekly payroll, quarterly and annual tax reporting.
  • Payroll - Provides me with a platform to enter employee work hours and then receive DD or live paychecks.
  • Payroll Taxes - Collects, reports and pays taxes at the local, state and federal levels.
  • Process - Hand-offs and ownership of customer issues need vast improvement. Hire me and I'll do something about it post-haste.
  • Sales Coverage - After close to 9 years with ADP you'd think someone would come around and say "Boo".
It does my payroll and taxes once I have input employee work hours into the software. It is the ADP team that I have issues with and sorry to express them here, but hopefully, I will get some attention now.

We are using RUN across the whole organization in order to process payroll, implement our 401k, and tax reporting purposes. Business English Elite benefits most from keeping the tax details of our bi-weekly payroll updated and providing a statement at the end of the year. This allows tax preparation to be reduced significantly.
  • Documentation for tax preparation.
  • Ease of running payroll.
  • Utilized the HR document preparation.
  • Communication when having issues.
Running bi-weekly payroll for the entire organization or just certain employees. Preparing for tax reporting on a yearly basis. Entering information for independent contractors and preparing tax documents. Utilizing direct deposit options.

We are a small operation with me as a CFO consultant and then the owner. So only two people involved. I am a CPA but don't like the hassle of payroll but it's a necessary function of businesses I work with. ADP makes it easy for me to offer payroll and minimize my time with the service.
  • Providing information for the accountant.
  • Submitting tax reports timely.
  • Submitting tax payments timely.
  • Providing reports for employees and management.
  • Some fees could be reduced.
ADP is great for my small clients that need me to help them with their payroll.

Where a company has an in house specialist perhaps not as necessary.

We switched to Run ADP from a small proprietor who was processing our payroll. As an office manager of a solo pediatrics office taking on payroll seemed overwhelming at the beginning but ADP has made processing payroll so much easier than I thought it would be. Having to take on the responsibility of human resources and all the laws and updates to laws has been manageable with ADP. Getting updates to laws, even local laws is great and being able to call in to ask questions has been great and knowing that all our employees are being paid correctly and according to the laws let me sleep soundly at night. We recently signed up with Aflac and to implement the payroll deductions was a simple phone call. The employees love having access to their pay stubs online and it saves me time by not having to log in somewhere and print a pay stub for them.
  • Great customer service.
  • Easy to use.
  • Reminders and updates.
  • I really haven't seen a need for any changes.
Sometimes work life gets busy and getting the reminders to run payroll is great!

ADP Run is used for our payroll needs as well as our employee database. It is primarily used only by the general manager, however, all employees have access to their employee portals. ADP run allows me to send the paycheck writing and direct deposit distribution to someone else to handle so that I can spend my time on other tasks.
  • Multiple Payroll Categories- This allows me to pay my teachers for the different roles they take throughout the year.
  • Employee data management- Helps keep tabs on their current phone numbers so if I need a substitute I can look through my current and past employee data to reach out.
  • Snap shot of previous payroll totals- helps give me a quick glance look at our patterns over the last 3 months.
  • I often process a "salary" amount for my teachers who provide private lessons and an hourly amount for their standard classes. It would be helpful if I could enter these totals on one line without there being an error message. It gets tedious needing to click "add a line" for each different payroll category I need to select.
  • If ADP could also save the lines I've added for each employee from the previous payroll that would be helpful too. For example, if Sharon had three separate lines for payroll (one being her standard teacher rate, the next her office/admin hours and third being her private lesson lump sum ) on the previous payroll when I log in this time if those three lines automatically populated under her name that would be helpful. Or having a function where I can select how many lines the teacher receives and can click them on and off as their role changes.
It is well suited in that I can categorize my employees and enter payroll for each department. For example, my admin staff appears first when I go to run payroll, next come my regular teachers, then my Dance Team teachers and lastly are my temporary or substitutes.

I wish there was a way to download an excel spreadsheet of the payroll when it's done but not submitted so that I can share it with my department heads for approval before submitting.

I switched 2 years ago from another payroll company to using ADP. I'm very pleased. It takes me less than 5 minutes to run my payroll, so that couldn't be better for me. All of this, and I saved money from the previous provider. Pretty cool. I do recommend ADP to other business owners that I know, and I will continue to. Thanks, ADP.
  • Ease of use.
  • Ease of adding and removing employees.
  • Security and login.
  • When I have trouble with payroll taxes and such, I'd appreciate better support.
  • A dedicated payroll specialist who reaches out every couple of months would be great.
  • I'd appreciate a longevity discount.
Ease of use, and ability to run payroll quickly.

We use it for payroll. It is simple to use. Employees can check the pay after every pay period by logging in. It is very secure and safe. Also when an employee moves to a different company, they can still see their prior paychecks. It is very handy and convenient tool.
  • Easy to use
  • Convenient
  • Secure
  • Fewer features.
  • Working time should be able to be added.
  • Holidays and leave should be able to be added.
It is well suited for big companies where some employees work remote and can record their working hours by clocking in and clocking out, however for small companies like ours it is only used for pay checks. It is nice to have this secure information online, as it can be viewed from anywhere.
Almost everything is straight forward, and honestly would not need to contact customer service for any general inquiries, unless there is any specific question. Our company changed holidays or pay rates, and it was simple enough to do in ADP without much confusion to employees, so the service is very accommodating.

Quick and Easy with ADP RUN

Score 8 out of 10

We use RUN to process our payroll and W-2s for our organization. We also use it for current HR document resources. RUN helps us to easily process our payroll more efficiently.
  • Quick and easy payroll processing. Payroll reports are available to print and review immediately after hours are entered for payroll processing which is very helpful. Whenever there has been an occasion in which there was an entry error, Client Services made correcting the problem quick and painless.
  • Simple W-2 processing. With all of our payroll processed through RUN W-2s are easily created for us with little to no work on our end.
  • Helpful reports available. Of the many reports we access most often is quarterly payroll verification for employees.
  • Helpful HR resource documents. We are able to have current tax withholding forms and I-9s available to print when we hire a new employee. This saves us time from having to search for new versions on the internet with the change of the year.
  • It would be helpful if the payroll summary that I review before final submission showed the separation of regular hours from overtime and vacation/sick hours.
  • We are having difficulty getting general ledger up and running because a few of our people work in more then one job classification. The person that assisted me with trying to map my employees for general ledger also did not properly map some employees so I need to find out how to edit their mapping. The person that assisted me in mapping employees also mapped ALL inactive employees, so our employee list is a muddled mess that is difficult to sort through. I have reached out multiple times to get assistance with fixing these problems, but no one has gotten back with me to followed up or assist me.
  • Since we are an organization near the Kansas/Missouri state line we have employees that work for us from outside the state our organization resides in, which is KS. For some reason RUN will only allow for state payroll taxes to be paid to the state where our organization resides (KS), so our employees that live in MO end up getting taxes taken out for the wrong state. These employees end up getting a full refund from KS since they live in MO, however they end up owing a good amount of money each year to MO since no payroll taxes were withheld for their home state. This is frustrating for employees in this situation. I know from my previous job that there are non-resident state payroll tax forms that can be filled our for KS, and that we should as the employer be withholding payroll taxes for the employee for the correct state, however in speaking with ADP client services I was not able to get this available for us to do. If we could get this resolved it would be a HUGE plus!
  • It would also be helpful if we could set our flat rate contractors for monthly payment, vs only biweekly. Right now we have to remember to change the flat pay to zero every other pay period.
ADP RUN seems to be better suited for organizations in which they are processing payroll for employees all in the same job role since General Ledger is not user-friendly to employees in multiple job roles. ADP RUN also seems better suited for organizations in which all the employees live in the state in which the organization resides since payroll taxes cannot be withheld for employees living out of state when needed. ADP RUN does not seem to be well suited to employers that have flat rate monthly contractors when their payroll runs biweekly. There is no current option to select monthly vs biweekly for these contractors.

ADP is a payroll program that we use across the company. It makes running payroll really easy, it does everything for you. All that I need to do is input hours for employees, then ADP takes care of the rest. It files all of the quarterly tax reports and automatically creates W-2's at the end of the year. It cuts the time I spend doing payroll down so much and gets rid of all of the headaches.
  • Their customer service is always friendly and no question is too small.
  • It takes all of the headache out of running payroll.
  • Sometimes their site is difficult to maneuver.
I do believe that ADP is well suited for any company. If you like to save time and make payroll easier then ADP is for you.

RUN by ADP is used for all of our payroll needs. I especially value the tax reporting and knowing I do not have to worry about the accuracy and timeliness of tax reports.
  • Support is very good with RUN. I don't need it often but when I do, they are there.
  • RUN is straight forward and intuitive.
  • RUN's historical reports are very useful. It is great to have at my fingertips when I'm asked for any past information.
  • Sometimes I wish I could run reports across different years instead of one year at a time.
  • Sometimes I would like to enter information in more of a spreadsheet fashion. I'd like the option.
  • I preferred the previous version of Paycheck Calculator but I am getting used to the latest version.
RUN has been good for our small company but I imagine it will be good if/when we expand. At one time we had an employee in another state and it was very easy to set up.

I use this program strictly for payroll for my entire organization. It keeps track of employee hours, vacation time, Holidays, Simple IRA contributions, and tax withholdings. It was a smooth transition to change from our previous payroll program to ADP. The representative was helpful and thorough. He understood our needs and delivered a superior product. We are happy with our decision to make the change to ADP. We find the capability for automatic deposit to be invaluable to all employees.
  • Keeps track of tax withholding for employees.
  • Keeps track of simple IRA contributions.
  • Ease of automatic deposits.
  • Tracks employee vacation and holiday time.

My company primarily uses ADP to run payroll for my contractors. I produce checks and arrange direct deposits as well as provide documentation and reports to federal, state and local agencies. In addition, I also utilize their pre-formatted reports to track earnings and provide statements to the contractors who aren't adept in obtaining this information for themselves through the employee access portal. About half of my contractors receive compensation through direct deposit and the other half receive physical checks for services rendered.

The biggest problem I had prior to using RUN Powered by ADP was the need to produce checks that do not show my company's account information. ADP has resolved this issue for me by providing "company" checks that show an account number that is not associated with my banking information so I don't have to worry about illegal activity from my contractors as it relates to my company's bank account. ADP has proven that they can handle just about every concern I've had in getting my contractors paid on time and resolving any issues I may have had in a timely and professional manner. The staff at ADP is also very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.
  • Fast direct deposits - usually 24 hours notice is all that's required.
  • Friendly, professional and courteous staff.
  • Fast delivery of checks to my place of business - usually by 10:00 am the next business day following payroll processing.
  • Timely and efficient investigation and resolution to issues.
  • Pricing - the cost associated with running payroll is as much as $10 per check when my payroll is small (1-5) by comparison to the "big payroll" (25+).
  • Better communication regarding when payroll processing may be affected by holidays. Must log in to be advised of potential delays. I would prefer an email.
  • Calls and emails from staff promoting services my company does not use due to the type of employees (contractors) in my organization. They should review the account before soliciting services. Although, it is acceptable that they would check in in the event my business model changes to include direct employees.

RUN Powered by ADP has been used entirely in our organization and it's the first payroll system we used.

Currently, we are using Run Powered by ADP as the only payroll processing software for the company. I have to say that I am very impressed with the user-friendliness of RUN by ADP. It is very simple to use. When I started working at the company, RUN by ADP was already in place, so I had to learn how to use it. I have to say that it was very easy to learn how to use the software. It literally took me about 30 minutes to learn the basics of RUN by ADP, after learning the basics I was more than comfortable to process payroll for the company. Adding and removing employees is very easy to do. Processing payroll is super easy to do. The software will even tell you exactly what amount of funds is needed to process payroll which I love because I can verify that the bank account has enough to cover payroll. The biggest thing RUN by ADP solves for me is the time saved to process payroll. It literally takes me 10 minutes or less to process payroll.
  • Very easy to add new employees. The process to add new employees is a simple step by step process. If you have the employee present, it is even more easier.
  • Processing Payroll. Processing payroll with RUN by ADP is super easy. When it is time to run payroll, you click on "run payroll" and follow the steps to process payroll for the given period. Processing Payroll with RUN by ADP is super easy and painless.
  • Reporting. RUN by ADP has so many different types of reports. You can get a report for each pay period by each employee or you can run a report for the entire year. Super Helpful.
  • Chat Function. RUN by ADP has a built in chat function. This function can be improved by the ability to upload data to the rep and provide a more appealing chat design.
  • Employee Access. RUN by ADP offers the ability for employees to gain access to view their pay stubs, change withholding, and change bank account info. The problem with this function is when on the employer side, I allow a new employee access, the employee never gets an email to get access to their account. I usually have to resend the email again.
RUN by ADP is perfect, in my opinion, for any size of company. Whether you have 5 employees or 500 employees. I feel that RUN by ADP will meet your needs and help make processing payroll as smooth as possible. Using RUN by ADP is a huge time saver for me. I love how easy it is to add new employees. I work at a company that is experiencing big growth and I am grateful for how easy it is to add new employees.

I wish RUN by ADP was more transparent about the cutoff times to process payroll timely. It would be very nice to know what is the latest I could process payroll to have it be processed on time.

We use ADP RUN to process our bi-monthly payroll, as well as the payroll for our sister agency. It allows us to make adjustments and run our payroll quickly and with confidence. We have two company codes, and I can access them both with the same platform. Also, we can run any reports we might need for year to date or for any particular payroll or specific need we have. The platform works great for us and it's quick and efficient. With this platform, it also takes care of all our payroll tax requirements and deposits. That is a HUGE big deal for a company with only a few employees. I feel the price we pay for it is very reasonable for all the things it provides us.
  • 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.
  • It really provides all we need and more.
We have only run small payrolls (2-5) employees, but we do run multiple company codes. It was very easy to get started and has been even easier to maintain. Before RUN, my tiny payroll was a beast - calculating checks, taxes, making tax deposits, preparing W2s, etc., all of which was very time-consuming and I dreaded doing payroll all together, not to mention the tax implications if I messed something up. Now with RUN, a few simple clicks and both my companies payrolls are run, money is withdrawn from our account in a timely manner and direct deposits are always made on time or early. We absolutely love the system.
