WHAT OTHERS SAY
We had Ceridian for many years. It wasn’t functional enough for us … they lacked customer service. We had to find a better solution. That solution was ADP.
Tony Romero Corporate Financial Planning and Analysis Manager, Nation Pizza and Foods
WHAT OTHERS SAY
We switched from our previous provider to ADP because we wanted a certain level of service and functionality that we weren’t getting. ADP is a comprehensive payroll and HR solution. There are items we outsource to ADP and they get done right and on time, and that's important for someone like me. Payroll, taxes, things like that have to happen. I can't worry that they're not going to get done on time.
