ROSELAND, N.J., April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP ®, a leading provider of human resource outsourcing, payroll services, benefits administration and integrated computing solutions for vehicle dealers, today announced that more than 100,000 small business owners are now using the company’s innovative online payroll management solution, RUN Powered by ADP®.
The ever-increasing popularity of RUN Powered by ADP points to its simplicity and powerful functionality that allows small businesses to manage their payroll over a secure, web-based platform to process payroll for employees and contractors. RUN Powered by ADP also helps to reduce risk by assisting them with best practices for HR compliance, including employee policy handbooks, hiring guidelines and employment law tips and alerts. ADP's innovative solution is a robust, full-service offering that allows business owners to run payroll in as few as three clicks and provides the added benefit of access to HR411®—a simple, yet powerful suite of tools that enables owners to better manage their HR needs.
"Today's small business owner is focused on maximizing resources efficiently in every aspect of their business," said Regina Lee, President of ADP's Small Business Services and Major Account Services units. "They demand flexibility and convenience. Equally important, they demand confidence in their payroll partner knowing they can manage key administrative tasks securely. RUN Powered by ADP is truly a game changer—the perfect innovation for the small business owner who expects convenience, accuracy and reliability."
RUN Powered by ADP also satisfies the demand of an increasingly mobile workforce. According to a 2010 nationwide survey conducted by ADP Research Institute, a specialized group within ADP, small businesses are leading the trend toward increased mobility. The survey showed that 90 percent of small business executives spend at least some time outside of the office for business, averaging nine hours a week or 23 percent of a 40-hour work week. Additionally, one third of that 90 percent indicated that time "on the go" is increasing.
"Because we understand the needs of our clients, we continue to introduce innovative products and solutions to help business owners focus on what matters most to them—growing their business," Lee continued. "For example, recognizing the demand for even greater mobility, we've put the RUN Powered by ADP platform on mobile devices so small business owners can manage payroll by using an app for their iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® touch devices. With Android and RIM-compatible versions scheduled to be released in the near future, we expect the adoption and penetration rates for RUN Powered by ADP to increase exponentially."
"RUN Powered by ADP makes payroll easier than I ever imagined it could be," said Scott McKain of McKain Performance Group, Inc. of Fishers, IN. "With just a few clicks, we process payroll conveniently and securely. We run reports and make all necessary state and federal filings easily. And since transitioning to the RUN Powered by ADP mobile platform, we can now process payroll securely over a mobile device, no matter where our busy schedules take us. RUN Powered by ADP has really helped us be more productive," McKain added.
