ADP SmartCompliance is a great resource for users of the ADP suite of products. I don't have any real negatives. I think it's one of the best third party resources that my company uses, and I've seen a number of them. Also, the continuous improvement of the website and it's offerings keeps me coming back to see what else I can do on the site. I've used SmartCompliance since it's creation, and other ADP resources prior to SmartCompliance and I am thoroughly sold on it.

If you are doing your accounting on a Mac, this is the go-to accounting application. The major competitor doesn't come close in features. For both PC and Mac users, the major competitor does too many things inside a black box, so you don't know for sure how it comes up with some of the results it shows. AccountEdge doesn't have those hidden "features."

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.

Overall, AccountEdge has been a great program for our small business. It allows us to bring all of our applications together into one, easy-to-use program. Our employee efficiency has increased as a result of AccountEdge's user-friendly interface, and in the long-run this has saved us money. We have been able to better create sales, monitor inventory, balance accounts, and manage our people since we began using AccountEdge and I would highly recommend this program to all other small-businesses.

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!

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.

Return on Investment

ADP SmartCompliance

  • We have been able to increase productivity and efficiencies by using ADP Smart Compliance to manage our tax filing process.
  • We are able to reduce liability by using ADP SMart Compliance for tax filing and wage payments, as we are able to utilize system integrations rather than manually processing in house.
  • The increased visibility to our tax profile allows us to be more compliant in areas that may have been a struggle in the past.

Priority AccountEdge

  • 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.
