ADP is significantly better than Paylocity. I lost so much time correcting payroll and compliance issues with Paylocity and now that we’re with ADP I am reinvesting that time.
Deborah S. Shuster, HR Manger
It's been a great move to ADP. Compared to Paylocity, ADP is much more intuitive and user-friendly, plus the reporting is amazing.
Mina Lurvey, Senior Accountant
Cloverdale Equipment Company
We switched from Paylocity to ADP two years ago, and our payroll has never been this smooth. We've experienced less manual entries, better reporting, and the customer service is just outstanding!
Lanita Palermo, Human Resources Manager
South Barrington Park District
We were with Paylocity for seven years. I learned over time that they were lagging behind in terms of technology. When an ADP salesperson reached out to me, I decided to see what they had to offer. We fell in love with the platform, and from there we just got the ball rolling.
Andrea Goodison, Director of Human Resources and Risk Management
HRA of New Britain
If you call Paylocity, they have different service associates for benefits, payroll, and time and labor. But with ADP, one service associate is able to answer all of my questions. All I have to do is push a button for which department I want and, once I reach that department, they don’t transfer me to anyone else. They may put me on hold and consult with another associate, but they get the answer for me. They’re not just transferring me blindly to somebody else and back and forth.
