Likelihood to Recommend

ADP Vantage HCM

I have used many payroll services and software. ADP Vantage is definitely the most advanced and intuitive product that I have used. We have a decentralized payroll, and it works great however I understand most clients do all the payroll at one location, so it suits either way. I not only recommend it for the exceptional product but also for the customer service that ADP provides.

QuickBooks Online

Quickbooks Online is great for small/medium-sized businesses with a large client base. If you only have a few clients, you may not need something this complex. Quickbooks Online has many features to help your business, including accounting for tax purposes, and payroll features if needed. It can definitely suit a wide range of business sizes and models. There is a lot of customization available, so it can get the job done for many types of businesses. If you are the sole employee of your business and have less than 10 clients, you might try something like Paypal for invoicing and accounting to save money. Quickbooks does a better job though when you have many clients, we have around 120. If you have employees and need to print them checks, Quickbooks is great. We have around 25 employees and print checks every month. It is very easy to go back and find a check that was printed if needed.

Pros

ADP Vantage HCM

  • The new user interface is friendly and easy to use.
  • The Succession Management module is one of the best I've seen. It is easy to navigate the talent assessment and easy to use to facilitate calibration sessions.
Diane Hartley profile photo

QuickBooks Online

  • Information is updated instantaneously.
  • The reports like P&L, collections, and AR aging are very useful on a day-to-day basis.
  • Neat to share info with investors and the board.

Cons

ADP Vantage HCM

  • The software is still very new. As with any new software, there is a lot of room for improvement. One good thing about ADP is that they are interested in user feedback to make changes. Also, they incorporate changes fairly quickly.
  • The payroll processing time is longer than I've experienced with other software packages.
  • There are a lot of processes that could be put into the hands of the users instead of having to rely on the response team.
  • From my understanding, Vantage is not a global solution.
  • The software has a lot of potential. There are a lot of improvements they need to make to be more competitive in the marketplace.

QuickBooks Online

  • The speed of the interface can be very slow. When entering multiple transactions manually the speed of the system (or lack there of) because it is web-based is glaringly obvious.
  • The integrated payroll solution is very basic and can create a lot of problems - the reminder notifications can't be sent to the accountant and there is no obvious place that shows you what is outstanding with an imminent due date - particularly with the payroll
  • The reporting packages are very rudimentary as are the client information screens. You cannot easily customize these with extra fields or columns to fit your needs. We find ourselves exporting reports to Excel in order to combine different fields with reports to generate relevant reports related to sales and customer "sourcing."

As technology becomes a part of daily life, it's efficient and consistent to keep using the same accounting software over a long period of time. I believe that it's very likely that my client and I will renew our use of QuickBooks Online in the future years.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

ADP Vantage HCM

ADP Vantage HCM is not an optimal solution compared to the features offered by Greenhouse and Bullhorn Recruitment CRM. If a recruiting team has a need for a detailed pipeline that is accurate, user-friendly, easy to integrate and migrate data then Greenhouse or Bullhorn Recruitment CRM would be better options. ADP Vantage is very much a program that is difficult to adopt and use
Clay Baswell profile photo

QuickBooks Online

We have clients who have used Sage/Peachtree and Quicken. QuickBooks Online seems a little more user-friendly for the average user, as well as offering a better interface. There seems to be more training and help available for the common person with QuickBooks than with other softwares, so it's easier to send along helpful articles to clients who are having issues with a particular task.

Return on Investment

ADP Vantage HCM

  • Our payroll process is so streamlined now, with so many less coding errors because it is entered in the field and approved by field managers.
  • We are paperless now, no more overnighting checks to the field.
  • And employees are much happier not having to cash checks.
Jennifer Halvorson profile photo

QuickBooks Online

  • The Accountant version of QuickBooks Online allows us to see several clients' QB under one login, making it a breeze not to whip out the password manual every time we need to work on someone.
  • The ability to direct connect to clients' bank accounts has allowed us to work more efficiently without having to login to bank accounts every five minutes to compare expenses and code.
  • We also use Intuit's payroll and can directly export payroll information to our clients' QuickBooks Online without having to sign in or send a file through email to the client. Great for clients who may not understand how to import it or are too busy and usually end up catching up their QB months at a time rather than day to day or week to week upkeep.
