ADP SmartCompliance

I believe ADP SmartCompliance is well suited for any organization that has implemented an HRIS system, such as Workday, but do not want to fully be responsible for the tax filings. I also feel it is very well suited to organizations such as ours that have employees in almost all 50 states. This helps to keep our payroll department staff at a minimum knowing we can rely on the cooperation between the Workday and the ADP SmartCompliance system. I think the only way I would not think SmartCompliance would be helpful would be with a very small company that would prefer to fully outsource their payroll process.

It is well-suited to small to medium businesses who prefer Macs and have sophisticated accounting needs that are not handled by QuickBooks for Mac, like inventory, job costing, web store integration, and integrated payroll. It is especially helpful if non-accounting employees (and owners) need to do transactions and time tracking in the field and sync it back to the company file. However, it is not well-suited to micro businesses with owners who have limited accounting knowledge.

Cons

  • Having quarterly/annual filing information available more timely would be useful.
  • Being able to communicate with ADP tax experts through SmartCompliance would be a great tool.
  • Being able to communicate with ADP garnishment experts through SmartCompliance would be a great tool.

  • Better custom reporting setup, current interface (AccountEdge Pro-2015) is rather dated.
  • I don't think the interface use for the custom reporting has been updated even in the 2018 version
  • Still has a bit of "wonky" interface when exporting Excel reports ( wants to over-right open files)

I use ADP more often than anyone in our company, and it has saved a great deal of time, money, and effort in payroll tax.

Without a doubt, when you need to do accounting use the program that will get the job done in the least amount of time with the least amount of errors. Once you are using a program that works you stay with it year after year and you will find yourself even excited about the updates

AccountEdge Pro & Basic is laid out in easy to use centers which compartmentalize a users needs based on departments. Along with that one can set up recurring transactions for things that repeat daily through annually and anything in between. You can set a preference for automatic posting or a user specific reminder to post the action

One of the finer advantages of desktop software, it's always available. AccountEdge doesn't suffer from outages or sluggish internet like web based applications do. It's always there when you power on your device!

The account managers have too many clients to give great customer service all the time. I had to complain to get better customer service

Rarely do we get support due to it costing money. Sell us on a Monthly service, bump up your CRM and Marketing and AccountEdge could easily be getting $2k/ month from us.

ADP is a leader in the industry for a reason

Return on Investment

  • ADP has only provided positive impact as it's the system we use to ensure our reports are available timely and accurately.
Evelyn E. Bozeman profile photo
  • AccountEdge is useful for running reports for submitting our Tax Returns on an Annual basis. To this end, it saves me time.
  • It is not useful for running reports on the analysis of the state of the company. In general, I find using Excel to be more useful, but probably more time consuming than it would be if I were able to run those reports in a comprehensive Accounting System.
