ADP Rolls Out Its Popular Small Business Platform, RUN Powered by ADP ®

Innovative, User-Friendly Small Business Platform Rolls Out Nationwide

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwire - May 4, 2010) -  ADP ®, a leading provider of HR, payroll and benefits administration services, today announced that it has nationally rolled out its powerful, small business payroll platform, RUN Powered by ADP ®. 

RUN Powered by ADP is a SaaS-based platform specifically designed to get clients away from the chore of running payroll, and back to the front line of managing their businesses. First launched in 2008, ADP has deployed the new platform on a rolling basis across the country, enhancing the product along the way based on prospect, client and sales force feedback. It will soon be available to ADP's entire U.S. small business services sales force.

"Feedback on the new RUN platform has been tremendously positive," said Mark Benjamin, Senior Vice President of ADP Small Business Services. "Clients can run payroll in just three clicks, and sophisticated tools and additional products are only a click away. We're already seeing double-digit increases in the use of RUN's 'self-serve' Web-based applications, and this is doubly exciting because it allows our own associates to spend more time on the complex issues that matter most to clients," continued Benjamin.

The new platform also provides ADP with meaningful competitive advantages, including the ability to offer differentiated service based on clients' needs or their industry. RUN Powered by ADP Payroll for Accountants ® offers several key benefits including:

  • Customizable dashboard
  • Client segmentation by accountant within a firm
  • Multiple pay methods such as direct deposit and debit card
  • 100% Web-based access to client reports
  • Ability to interface with their clients' general ledger applications

Both small business clients and CPAs will be able to access RUN on the mobile platform of their choice when ADP introduces functionality for iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Android devices.
