Likelihood to Recommend

ADP SmartCompliance

ADP SmartCompliance is well suited when it comes to providing a Tax Summary. The ADP 'SmartCompliance portal is user-friendly and lets you know if you need to work and tasks or are in great shape. It also has a good notice of notifications and lets you know when something needs to be resolved.

QuickBooks Enterprise

It is a perfect if your a small to medium-sized company. As your company has more transactions, such as changing to a subscription model, Quickbooks does not scale quite as well. With the new revenue recognition GAAP rules, it would be difficult to properly record revenue if your product catalog is complex, such as selling bundles, warranties, discounts.

Pros

ADP SmartCompliance

  • SmartCompliance is exceptionally user friendly, it does not require a lot of technical skill or training to navigate and leverage the site.
  • ADP's client support staff is some of the best I've worked with over my career. They are generally very responsive and quick to identify and resolve client issues and concerns.
  • They have moved to a point where the majority of the client services offered are all on one unified site - rather than having to navigate to multiple sites to perform multiple functions

QuickBooks Enterprise

  • It is easy to navigate through the transactions, reports and modules.
  • It is easy to change previously posted transactions within the same month or open months so you don't have to create correcting journal entries for every thing that needs correction. Of course, that means you need qualified staff making the right decisions or controls so only qualified staff can make changes to existing transactions.
  • You can export reports to Excel and manipulate the data for presentation to others.
  • You can easily create reports by modifying existing reports.

Cons

ADP SmartCompliance

  • Currently we have 2 separate websites t log into for wage payments and employment taxes - would love to see all features of wage payments integrated with SmartCompliance

QuickBooks Enterprise

  • Inventory is still a weakness unless you purchase the inventory add-on
  • Needs to be fewer work around processes
  • You can no longer purchase the desktop version

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.

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!

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

I have not really evaluated a lot of different products. I have used Sage software in the past but was not totally pleased with its limitations. I am not fond of any of the online software programs as I have never found one that full fits my client needs, but I look at them periodically to see how much they have improved

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