ROSELAND, New Jersey -- January 11, 2006 --

ADP® Small Business Services, part of the Employer Services division, a leading provider of integrated outsourced payroll and human resource services, today announced the availability of EasyPayNet(SM) 5.0. This product is an enhanced version of ADP's fully outsourced, Web-based hosted offering for small businesses. EasyPayNet 5.0 has a new, simplified design that is easy to navigate and further streamlines the payroll administration process.

With this new version of EasyPayNet, users can tailor the payroll process according to their individual needs. An adjustable payroll workflow and checklist prompts users with the steps needed to complete a simple payroll in just five clicks. The pay input screens can be modified to match user input documents for faster entry. To help minimize errors, users can review payroll through on-screen audit reports before processing.

"We've used EasyPayNet for three years, and have improved our payroll efficiency and accuracy," said Amy Wierman, Payroll Administrator, Great Lakes Engineering. "Now EasyPayNet 5.0 has made the process even easier. Its new design and features are so simple to use and navigate without training."

Each pay period, users simply input their payroll via the Web-based application. EasyPayNet then calculates and pays employee wages, and pays and files federal, state and local payroll taxes. Users can choose to print their own paychecks, or receive signed payroll checks or direct deposit vouchers for their employees.

An added value of EasyPayNet is the Data Access Suite, a Web-based application that enables small businesses to easily and securely share payroll-related data with their accountant. Data Access Suite features a general ledger interface, electronic reports and generic data export capabilities that allow information to be transferred to spreadsheets or third-party accounting software packages, providing greater operational efficiencies.

"Our primary goal for enhancing EasyPayNet was to provide a solution tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients. Through extensive usability studies, we gained additional insight into the ways in which small businesses could save time on their payroll-related tasks," said Alan Sheiness, President, ADP Small Business Services. "The design and features available in the 5.0 version were created in response to this feedback from our clients. EasyPayNet is one more example of ADP's commitment to meeting and exceeding our clients' evolving needs."

Additional enhancements include automatic check voids and required field indicators on every screen. Clients also save time with new pre-fill options that automatically load payroll data into the system based on employee setup information.

These new features are an added benefit to EasyPayNet clients who've always received unlimited customer support, backed by more than 50 years of payroll experience. Many users also take advantage of the product's ability to integrate with other back-office functions, such as time and labor management.

EasyPayNet 5.0 is currently available to new clients. Existing clients are in the process of being upgraded over the next several months.
