Likelihood to Recommend

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.

QuickBooks Enterprise

QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions would be great for a company that is buying products and just reselling them as-is. It is great at keeping track of quantities remaining from previous purchases and time periods, adding new inventory purchased, and subtracting inventory sold. It would also work well for a company that purchased materials to manufacture items for stock, and then sold those stock items. QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions does not work very well for manufacturing of one-off or custom products as each item has to be "built", whether it is 1 item or 100 items. It also does not have an easy way to account for scrap or materials damaged in the manufacturing process.

Pros

  • Provides a Tax Summary
  • Timely filing and paying of taxes
  • Research of agency notices
Hilda Marquez profile photo
  • Class Tracking - allows you to produce a more detailed Profit & Loss Report
  • Advanced Inventory - keeps track of your inventory along with Fixed Assets
  • Sales Tax - Paying sales tax with the Sales Tax Liability Report gives you the breakdown of the different fields the State Tax Department requires
  • Chart of Accounts - When updated or changing an account code, it automatically changes the history of all the entries made in lieu of manually changing all entries
  • Home screen - It is mapped out for you to enter your business entries clearly
  • Reconcile - Reconciling the bank statements is very eary

Cons

  • It would be nice to locate tutorials on how to use SmartCompliance navigation for example.
  • It would be nice to have access to reports for longer than 90 days if needed without having to involve the acct manager.
  • I would like to see more self-service handouts regarding the tools offered by ADP.
Evelyn E. Bozeman profile photo
  • Employee profiles could be more robust, like a true HRIS system.
  • Canned reports can be difficult to manipulate.
  • If you create different payroll modules they do not integrate with each other.

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!

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

ADP is a leader in the industry for a reason
Michelle Gagnon profile photo
This is the best accounting system...hands down better than Sage BusinessWorks. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an accounting system for their business. QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions was picked because of the capability to import from QuoteWerks. This has made our order entry processes much smoother, meaning more automated. The problem with our last accounting system was too complicated and to make changes required a lot of effort.

The accounting functionality is very good, however, the one downfall is having to pass the file back and forth with the client. Real-time information would be a huge plus.

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

  • It makes tax fling easier and W2 processing is very simple.
  • Registration for the W2's employees is too complicated for employees and we have to add additional help to manage the registration process.
  • There is a time difference for any process with ADP, most process do not post immediately and you have to wait on reporting as well.
Ramona Fenner profile photo
  • We had to purchase various third-party integration software to make it work with our other departmental software packages.
  • We had reached a point where their standard reporting features could not do what we wanted. We would need to learn QB Advanced Reporting which was not an intuitive product.
