Amanda Gauthier oversees payroll for Purolator’s employees and is driven to make sure it is always done right and on time. Her team runs lean, so she wants to make the best use of their time to focus on their core task of running accurate payroll operations. We recently spoke to Amanda about her experience using ADP® and how it helps her and her team keep focused on what really matters.

Why take the risk in your own hands when someone can do it for you? It’s going to be 100 percent accurate and you’re going to have those extra hours to put back into your team. You don’t have to do all the work yourself. You can spend your time developing your team and looking for process efficiencies.

The Challenges

  • Each member of our payroll team processes payroll for more than 2,500 employees. Since we have a lean team and it takes a lot of time to build the reports, make the remittance, do the online banking process, enter the payments into our payroll payments portal manually, get approvals and then release the payments, it was determined that our time could be used more effectively on other priority projects and initiatives.

How ADP Helped

  • We looked to find a vendor that could handle the tax remittance and direct deposit portion of the payroll function. ADP fit the bill because it was a single button, drag-and-drop solution for filing, and it is a one-stop-shop. I didn’t want to have to go into multiple systems to get various files. I wanted to take the file that I received from my payroll system, push it to the vendor and walk away.
