ADP Streamline Payroll

I think that if the sales staff were more knowledgeable on the product they are selling you and were less worried about making a sale then perhaps I would have had a better experience and would have kept them longer than a couple of months.

Good to manage foreign currencies. Not the best to manage multiple companies, mother and sub (interco agreement). The different components are not integrated.

Pros

  • I liked the notification features of the payroll module, which helped ensure, that payroll was processed in a timely manner without missing any deadlines.
  • The features in the payroll module seem effective to ensure that no accidental erroneous data entry can take place by a payroll administrator.
  • The CRS system allowed us to generate consolidated payroll summaries for all of our foreign sales office which were very beneficial and useful for our Finance Department

Cons

  • ADP Streamline billing is slow to react to company changes. Hence incorrect invoices from ADP Streamline were issued and it took a very long time to get their billing department to correct these and issue credit notes.
  • In the payroll system I missed not being able to obtain a per country headcount and payroll numbers. Once payroll is processed it goes directly into an archive and is not easily viewable. It would be nice to have more visibility of personnel and payroll data.

  • Integration - Would like functionality to go between/across QB desktop and online versions
  • Payroll - set up is not as intuitive as it could be
  • Predictive suggestions - the feature is ok but needs improving - I keep having to turn it off

Without knowing what the competitors offer I can only give a limited opinion.

QBO needs better integration with non-Intuit products and developers need to use Intuit's open API to develop better add-ons. Clients are having a great deal of problems with their data importing from the bank and this takes time away from better revenue producing activities. Although the efficiencies are there, they are outweighted by the shortcomings of the product. When we ran a parallel of QBO versus other cloud accounting products, we had more issues with the QBO product than any other

The ability for us and clients to both be in the system, see the entries each of us have made and also direct a client to certain reports and views is very helpful as compared to getting an accountant's copy or getting a date in time copy that then needs to be uploaded by the client after we make adjustments. Still, the in ability to prevent someone from deleting an entry without knowing who or what was deleted is frustrating.

We have rarely had outages in the last 10 years. I can only recall 2 times in the last 10 years where we were not able to access our client files.

There are tab issues. When I tab the field doesn't highlight and I have to backspace or delete what is in the field. Happens on the memo field and sometimes other fields. Very time consuming.

I'm frustrated. Wound up with two companies, have to keep switching back and forth. This is unsatisfactory!

Alternatives Considered

We decided to go with something familiar and more industry standard than alternative products. QuickBooks is simple to use, familiar with many. We received some great introductory pricing and will continue using it for the intermediate future. We wish there was more church specific functionality with the software, but we didn't want to go to other products which didn't have enough of a track record to trust.

It's easy for clients to switch to (it will upload data files from other bookkeeping software). It easy to set up and train someone new on it as long as it doesn't get too in-depth, and relatively cheap compared to other similar products. It's great for the small business owner who is just starting out, and with a monthly subscription service rather than a long-term contract, it's great for those who don't have a huge start up budget.
