1.
I believe it would free up the business owner to focus to building his company and he would have someone a phone call or email away from answering any questions he may have about certain aspects of his company.
2.
I believe that a small business would find a payroll company appealing because it gives them the time to worry about the business and a sense of protection because ADP is the professional on the subject of payroll, not the business owner.
3.
So that it can devote more time into improving its service and thereby grow into a larger business.
4.
Payroll can be time consuming. Small businesses seek growth and they have to use their time wisely, learning how to process payroll efficiently or having a service would dramatically improve their chances of success.

My current job is all about time management, so I often have to make decisions on-the-spot on who I talk to or how I plan my strategy.

3.
Many times at Enterprise, I do have to use my own judgment and sometimes it really isnt successful. For example, many times I must forcast what times we will have certain sized vehicles available depending on which customers are returning that day. I had let a customer know that they could make a reservation fora vehicle because I forcasted that a couple customers would be returning the vehicle. THe customers did not return and I had a customer left without a car.
4.
When I was in real estate I published a few brochures for the marketing plans of various different homes and it turns out they did not tell the whole story of the home. It costs too much money for people not to like them. The reason I know it was not successful is due to the fact the home did not sell and I received negative feedback on that.
5.
During the Closing of books, there is activity called cycles, which re-allocate the Profit centers from dummy to specific, And for that we have to create a cycle with segments and detials. So the time was too short for that, and tried once to update the cycle and run it it was not successful due to technical issue. But it was found later on. But the time was gone and books got closed.
