ADP Resource

This is no fault of ADP, I would want to use our software to it's full potential. [I would like to use it for] letting the employees have access to their records for changes to their address and to view their payroll records. I like that I have so much access to process payroll but I, feel the cost does not justify the use. It is pricey for what I am using it for and this is the decision of our President.

QuickBooks Enterprise

QuickBooks is appropriate for a smaller business with just a few departments. As the business grows and there is an increased need for budgeting, forecasting, and planning tools; that's where QuickBooks falls short in my opinion.

Pros

  • ADP has an easy to read portal that is easy to navigate. The UI is fairly intuitive and as a user I can find the right information quickly.
  • The ADP portal is flexible in the sense that we can change payroll amounts for special circumstances such as a special bonus or special payout. This allows our payroll team to make the necessary changes right away.
  • The reporting capabilities are quite robust and there are many ways to customize reports that we use for finance, payroll, HR, etc.

  • I like being able to attach documents in QuickBooks
  • Downing loading of bank transactions works well
  • I like the graphic user interface with the desk top edition
  • I like that I can use one Enterprise edition to support more than client at a time.
  • Like that my clients with multiple companies do not have to purchase multiple QuickBooks

Cons

  • My biggest peeve is....and they are aware of this - a new state is sometimes very difficult to set up. With all the different classifications in states back east, it can take days to get it set up correctly.

  • There are limited capabilities when it comes to organizational growth and needs.
  • Tracking specific features of inventory within the system can be complicated.
  • Troubleshooting seems to be 'work-around' solutions rather than actual solutions to the software.

I have a lot of experience and trust in this software package - actually any software package from ADP. The training that I have gotten over the years has always been complete and the representatives that I have had over the years are all EXCEPTIONAL! Looking back in the 20 plus years of experience, I can say truthfully there are only 1-3 persons who I would rather not have worked with at ADP. I find their customer service, and phone reps do their best to get the job done. This makes my job easier in the process.

We'll renew because we know how to use it and I have enough experience to troubleshoot when our bookkeeper has a problem. And it's a good product that I think fits our needs perfectly!

I like the QuickBooks Enterprise edition so much I moved my company to it this year. I like the overall functionality of the program and I am very familiar with the user interface which makes my job easier. One of the things I dislike about the online version it is not modeled after the desktop edition and I have a hard time getting around in the program.

QB is a good and reliable system. We probably should have explore the other modules rather that jump in to the conclusion that we needed a new ERP.

It is a very easy system to learn, so with the help it was even easier. QB is a good solid system, but it lacks some of the complexity other systems have. with QB you need to get additional modules to get the same functionality that other systems offer standard

easy to learn system, specially with some kind of support. Just like with any other system, things get lot easier if you have guidance to lead you in your search for answers. having said that, QB is very easy to use and very easy to teach. you wont spend much time memorizing where to click.

Alternatives Considered

Before my time, Uyemura was using ADP Paynet Plus and switched to another software, who shall go unnamed, but it was a complete bust. The taxes were calculated incorrectly on employees who have a car allowance and of course this a very big area for mistakes. We quickly switched back to ADP Paynet plus.

One - it holds the largest market share in my area of the country. Two - it's easy to find personnel with knowledge of QuickBooks. It works well for the majority of my clientele and I have been using QuickBooks for many years now and know how to manipulate the program for best usage for the most part.

It is not a fair rating because we did not invest in different modules to accommodate for business grow and complexity expansion.

Return on Investment

  • We currently use ADP Resource for payroll and some HR only. We have been approached for the 401k and insurance portion of ADP Resource but we have separate third party administrators for those.
  • The customer service is outstanding. I would not change anything.
  • I understand and agree that the employee's would benefit from viewing and making limited changes to their employee record and this will be approached in the next meeting we have with the president of the company.
Yolanda Gaytan profile photo
  • Ability to produce a clear and transparent financial statements.
  • Payroll reports are easy to understand and use for direct deposit, payroll taxes, 401K.
  • Quick ramp up time for new users to learn basics.
