Roll by ADP At A Glance

  • Roll by ADP is a simple chat-based payroll app designed for small businesses.
  • With features such as tax support, garnishments, next-day payroll, hiring, document management, support for W-2 and 1099 contractors, and much more, Roll by ADP has all essential payroll features
  • Roll by ADP missed a spot as one of the best payroll software as it doesn’t offer much by way of advanced payroll features, lacks integration options, and offers very limited customer support options.

Payroll Software Review Methodology

We research, evaluate, and test each payroll software app that we review at Merchant Maverick, placing special emphasis on key characteristics to generate granular ratings.

Our exhaustive, 76-point rubric guides the star rating of each payroll provider we review, examining pricing, ease of use, features, customer service, and user reviews. Each section is weighted differently.

  • Pricing (10% of the overall rating)
  • Ease of Use (20% of the overall rating)
  • Features (40% of the overall rating)
  • Customer Service (20% of the overall rating)
  • User Reviews (10% of the overall rating)

When rating payroll software, we are looking for very specific qualities. The speed and cost of payroll runs and the availability of tax filing services are given high weight, as are the quality and availability of accounting, time-tracking, HR integrations, and user onboarding services. We also look for the presence of client and employee portals, benefits administration, PTO and time management tools, and many more vital features.
