On the value of ADP and Pay-By-Pay
When onboarding a new client, one of the first things I do is examine how they are running payroll. If they are not using ADP, I immediately suggest they move to ADP to benefit from enhanced service and support. With ADP, my clients are not only getting a more robust platform for their payroll, but also a far superior support team. We also recommend clients utilize ADP Pay-By-Pay®, a premium payment solution for workers’ compensation. It has significantly reduced administrative burdens that helps keep me, and my clients, very happy. I have my clients set up on Pay-by-Pay – and it’s been great.
A client’s premiums are adjusted using their real-time payroll data. At the end of the policy, there’s minimal concern if the client owes more premium at the client’s year-end audit. In my experience this minimizes the need to enter any accruals or journal entries. With Pay-By-Pay, everything is already in the platform, the reporting is accurate, and I don’t have to worry about providing additional information.
My clients obtain their workers’ compensation from ADP’s Licensed affiliate, ADPIA. With the Pay-by-Pay solution, integration is seamless and even the renewal process is easy. Everything about using Pay-by-Pay has helped me reduce administrative tasks and focus more on being consultative with my clients. Many of my clients are rapidly growing, adding employees and dealing with the complexities of growth. Our partnership with ADP and ADPIA allows me to focus on heling manage their growth and getting them where they need to be.
My Service Experience
I’m confident the workers’ compensation insurance for my clients is being handled correctly the first time, every time. That level of support provides peace of mind. I’m not an insurance agent, and I don’t want to be an insurance agent. I trust ADPIA to be on top of things and get them done quickly.
Advice to Others
I am constantly multitasking and juggling a lot at once. There is not a lot of time to call a help desk, sit on the phone and speak with different reps each time. Working with ADP and ADPIA makes it easy for me. I am set up with a dedicated team that I can speak with directly that handles things for me. This gives me the confidence to know its’s not only going to get done quickly, but correctly. Having that trusted and dependable support is an invaluable asset to me, my business, and ultimately my client’s business.
