ADP Launches Company's First Mobile Payroll App
ROSELAND, NJ – OCTOBER 2010 - ADP, a leading provider of HR, payroll and benefits administration services, today announced its first app, RUN Powered by ADP® mobile payroll, is available on the iTunes App Store. First introduced in 2008 and hailed by PC Magazine* as "exceedingly simple to understand and use," RUN has been continually enhanced with direct client feedback, bringing it to the point where business owners can now run payroll in just three seconds. The RUN App is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and allows business owners to take the ease and functionality of RUN wherever they go.
"Within the next two years, we're going to see businesses spending 35% of their IT budgets on mobile," said Gary Butler, ADP President and CEO. "The fact is, the definition of 'the office' is changing. With smarter devices and faster networks on our side, ADP continues to invest heavily in bringing our trusted solutions to clients wherever they choose to work."
A recent ADP Research Institute survey of small business owners nationwide indicates that small businesses are leading the way in this trend toward increased mobility. In fact, nearly all small business executives surveyed (90%) indicated that they spend at least some time outside of the office for business, averaging nine hours a week or 23% of a 40-hour work week. Of that 90%, nearly 30% indicated that time "on the go" is increasing.

"In today's environment, small business owners need to move quickly to manage their cash commitments and balance their obligations to employees and vendors. Sometimes even a laptop isn't convenient, so RUN Powered by ADP® mobile payroll is the ideal solution for their busy lives," said Regina Lee, President of ADP's Small Business Services and Major Account Services. "With more than 1,000 small business-oriented mobile apps available for the iPhone alone, our clients can already monitor inventory, ship orders, and handle accounting on their mobile devices, so they're delighted to be able to manage payroll remotely with ADP's secure systems."
