ADP RUN

ADP RUN seems to be very well suited towards smaller businesses. The site is simple to use and has plenty of features for handling payroll and basic HR functions. I think the system would be a bit cumbersome to use with a larger number of employees (25+), unless you opted to use their time and attendance program.

Sage Intacct

I find this software to be fantastic. The implementation took time -- all major software implementations do! -- but it was so worth it. My company has 200 employees and around 60 live projects at any one time. Sage's ability to handle project accounting is absolutely stellar, in my opinion.We are in a busy and ever-changing environment. Since implementation we have added (as a partner product) an improved Time and Expense product and are now adding a more in-depth Purchase/Procurement partner product. Sage Intacct allows for the plug-in of these helpful advanced modules with minimal heartache.A company with a very simple structure might find that Sage Intacct has more firepower than necessary for their use.

  • I can run reports when I want to, no time limits.
  • If I make a mistake it lets me know immediately.

Cons

  • A few months ago we encountered a glitch where an employee's rate of pay changed. Customer service suggested it was "user error" on my part, but when I reviewed the error, I was not able to actually change the rate of pay on the screen in question. At any rate, ADP took the time to walk me through the process and helped me solve the problem quickly.
  • ADP often contacts me to try and sell additional services. I find this to be a tad annoying.

  • The package we have provides only 2 Business User licenses for a decent annual cost. To add another Business User License is very costly. I think more Business User licenses should be provided for the base package. If you have an accounts payable person to enter bills, a CFO to review/maintain all accounting transactions, and a CEO to approve payments, having only 2 Business User licenses will not work. This is my # 1 issue with Intacct. I hope it can be addressed at some point.
  • There must be a flag or something that should pop up when bills are entered without an attachment. This is extremely important to ensure all bills have a supporting document attached for audit purposes. Or, there should be a column on the bills page to show if an attachment is present or not for each bill.

currently you must submit a ticket via the customer portal and then wait for a response. The time you must wait for the response varies based on the urgency of your request. Sometimes you just need a quick response and a phone call would be easier or even a live chat ~ would love to see them roll that out instead of having to wait when you have a question or issue.

The training is designed for implementing intacct as opposed to utilizing intacct. I think that both are necessary to learn, but wish there was continued training for using it once Intacct is in place for the users.

Alternatives Considered

I have used both RUN by ADP and Xero Payroll and the ADP solution is a bit more robust and user-friendly.

MS Dynamics GP is an archaic application that is fraught with data integrity issues. SAP Business One is an excellent on-premises application for direct manufacturing companies as it has a very robust and easy to use Bill of Material, Inventory Application. But on-premise solutions have their limitations. NetSuite - I have used and implemented NetSuite in the past. The application is complicated and not intuitive to use. I have had other job opportunities since joining Stratford. The companies using NetSuite or MS Dynamics GP were a no go. Life is too short to muck about with either of these applications.

The learning curve takes a little time, however, the workflow across managing all our clients is very beneficial.

Return on Investment

  • it is beneficial
  • we were able to switch form monthly to quarterly easily
  • the team is great to work with
Kim Pandina profile photo
  • Reporting is quick and easy. We have 1 person in AP processing 2,000 invoices per month.
  • The entry duplication feature is a huge time saver for large volume entries each month. Same goes for reversal entries - couldn't work without those now.
  • The majority of the implementation was done by the finance group with very little assistance from the IT group. Cloud-based is definitely the way to go for small-medium sized businesses.
