QuickBooks Online

In the past we have used QuickBooks Online to schedule vendor payment and tracking between various properties. This was helpful to us because it not only ensured that many payments to many vendors across many dates were shipped in time, but the built-in reporting and tax prep features made filing so much easier when it came to be tax time.

Pros

  • ADP Streamline works best if you have a great ADP rep on the other end for your payroll purposes. I had a fantastic rep who was very responsive.
  • The ease and security of the upload process makes things quick and easy. Especially when actually preparing the payroll for upload can be difficult.
  • The report running format when I was using ADP Streamline was extremely user friendly and easy to navigate.

  • Bank Connection - it's so nice to be able to pull expenses and deposits directly from our bank account into QuickBooks for categorization, this was the primary reason we chose the online version.
  • Categorization of Expenses - easy to categorize expenses and assign them to a certain vendor (same for sales and customers).
  • Reporting - Statement of Activity, Financial Position and Revenue by Customer are the most used reports.

Cons

  • Training was almost non existent when I was using the service. It was easy to figure out but I could have benefitted from some detailed training to help me better use the system and all its functionality.
  • I'm not sure this is anything ADP Streamline can fix because of time differences and such but it was very much like I was on an island waiting for messages in a bottle. I would upload and it would take sometimes more than a day to get a response.
  • The process was very manual when I was using the system. I did all my payroll work off ADP Streamline and basically used it to upload and relied on the rep to enter everything correctly. I felt like I had less control than I would like. I would have preferred to have some control over what was being uploaded and entered.

  • Invoice capabilities are limited - for example, % completion is not available.
  • The speed of the system is slower than desktop. When a transaction is saved, the window refreshes, rather than staying where the user was.
  • Having the separate pages in the bank register is slow - it would be better to have all information available at the same time, without having to go to another page.
  • Bank register should be able to be sorted by any field - check #, amount, etc. and in the entirety, not just on that page.
  • Unable to create a deposit to the bank - must be done through the bank download.

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

Quickbooks is a more than adequate solution that solves many complex problems. Is it the easiest tool to use? - No. Is it totally learnable to anyone who is accustom to performing these responsibilities either manually or with other competitor tools? - Absolutely.

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.

Alternatives Considered

I can't really answer this question as I was the user of ADP Streamline but had no input in the choosing of ADP Streamline.
Sandra Van Munster profile photo
It is NOT as good as the desktop version. The sales/use tax module is terrible and it isn't customizable enough. I wish we had never changed to QBO.

Return on Investment

  • ADP Streamline was just a function to us so I can't really say it had a positive or negative effect on our business objectives. We went with Streamline because we already were with ADP. We didn't really shop.
  • Because of the great rep we had we were able to get a more positive response from our German staff to their pay. Before I came on board there were a lot of payroll errors which had an effect on staff morale. With help from the rep we were able to improve our accuracy and pay people correctly.

  • I wish had never switched to QBO. The desktop version was much better suited for our business.
