ADP Vantage HCM

I think it all depends on what the client is looking for. I mean we have been using Vantage for the last 6 years and it has come a long way from where it started. The nice thing is we have been able to grow with it and configure things to how we need them to be for our business. So each business needs are going to be different and ADP Vantage can keep up with those needs.

QuickBooks Enterprise

You'll want to go with this type of ERP solution if you're running a business with some level of complexity. For example, a manufacturing company with more than 50 employees and significant inventory tracking needs would be a good candidate for QuickBooks Enterprise. Additionally, a scenario where there are going to be a lot of accounting users would necessitate a product such as QuickBooks Enterprise rather than the basic QuickBooks desktop products. If you're starting out, or your business is in an earlier stage of development, you won't necessarily want to start out with Enterprise initially. If you use more of a "beginner" type accounting product (such as one of the other QuickBooks desktop products), you can always upgrade your data file later should you eventually use Enterprise.

Pros

  • ADP Vantage HCM is nicely laid out so it is user friendly. It gives you the look and feel of what other popular apps might look like so there is a familiarity there.
  • ADP Vantage HCM being a one stop shop, makes it nice to only have to keep track of one log in and I have all of the information I need at my fingertips.
  • ADP Vantage HCM is always evolving and while at times this can be a challenge I find it to be a strength that they are always trying to improve the product.

  • Inventory tracking: Lower end accounting products are much weaker in this regard and QuickBooks Enterprise is built with this functionality.
  • Reports: Much more robust reporting functionality than lower end accounting systems. Ability to mine data for better business decision making.
  • Number of users: QuickBooks Enterprise is designed for more concurrent users in an accounting department with simultaneous processes going on.

Cons

  • There is currently a bug or defect with the calendar popup and it requires a duplicated click to request off.
  • The monthly time off calendar can be improved visually. Need an easier way to see a big picture for the employee.

  • 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

Usability

ADP Vantage HCM5.2
Based on 5 answers
when required to move from PayForce to Vantage we expected to have greater functionality and reporting - did not expect to be forced to move to a product that was not ready, provided less functionality, required more dependence on ADP Service Rep for day to day function and cost more - was a big swing and a miss for ADP

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

A lot of set ups vary from company to company so parts of our training we found it difficult to relate it to our processes. They have TONS of training modules available and a streamlined process for what you should complete and when. Would have been helpful to have onsite training for how much one pays for the system.

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

I was not part of the decsion making team
Yvonne Paul profile photo
Also considered Sage MAS products, but QuickBooks is easier to install and maintain. It also has a more friendly and easier to use interface which keeps employees happier and spend less time training. The reporting is also more flexible and can drill down to the source transaction with a few clicks of the mouse.

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

  • None so far
Maria Vladova profile photo
  • Increased efficiency due to a change in our controller staff - she was easily able to pick up QuickBooks even though she never had any prior experience.
  • Good solution for small businesses, but limitations to growth and expansion beyond basic capabilities.
  • Very affordable platform for our business needs with strong resources and training/education opportunities.
