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.

It started off a bit clunky but continuous updates and improvements have made it great and staple. I never have to use the web version now

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.

I remain neutral as I am more than willing to support it and will recommend it if that is the appropriate choice.

The Mac version is OK overall. I find the Windows versions to be much more robust but Mac is quite good for Mac users. Though I think die hard Mac users should consider QuickBooks Online instead as there is a new QB for Mac app that makes using QBO much better!

I've been using the QuickBooks online version for a little over 6 months now (upgraded from Mac desktop) and I haven't had any access issues. There have been times when it was down for service/upgrade however there is always plenty of notification time given by the Quick Books Online Support team. These upgrade maintenance time frames are always over night hours and on the weekends so everything can be worked around very easily.

Alternatives Considered

ADP is a leader in the industry for a reason
Michelle Gagnon profile photo
I did not select the Mac version for my own business. I don't use a Mac but I have access to one. I do know how to use and support the Mac version. I use all of the various QB versions as necessary to support my clients on a regular basis. I still feel that QB for Mac is not where Intuit's focus is and that it is just not as robust of a program as the various Windows versions

Return on Investment

  • SmartCompliance was fairly easy to get used to plus it also has links where I can access The Bridge.
  • It allows for some questions to be answered without contacting my ADP representative.
  • I wish there was a better amendment input process that could avoid a lot of manual intervention.
Lynwood Waller profile photo
  • QBooks has allowed us to increase our productivity time because of the simplicity of entries
  • Ease of pulling various reports needed for review for both my company as well as my accountant
