Likelihood to Recommend

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.

I have found QuickBooks to be very well suited to small to medium sized businesses that have mostly "normal" payrolls. I have had good success in working with non-profits that use QBP to track donors and to split transactions between program and admin for tax and reporting purposes. Businesses that are very specific in their needs, like construction, or that have very complicated payrolls or vendor payments (eg commissions, percentage calcs, etc.) may benefit from a software that is more specifically designed for their needs.

Pros

ADP Vantage HCM

  • The best thing about having all the product offerings associated with ADP Vantage HCM is being able to offer a "one-stop shop" to our HR practitioners, managers, and employees.
  • The convenience of ADP Talent Management and ADP Recruiting Management's full integration with Vantage allows us to create more efficient performance, compensation, and recruiting programs and procedures.
  • The user interface.
Jacqueline Raymond profile photo

QuickBooks Pro

  • Expenses and accounts payable - QuickBooks Pro allows users to input bills, write checks, and post debit transactions easily. The Write Checks function helps new or inexperienced users by offering a familiar interface to input the transaction, while more experienced users have other options that allow faster entry, while still capturing the necessary information.
  • Bank reconciliations - The software makes reconciling bank and credit card statements easy
  • Customizable Chart of Accounts and classes - Users and take advantage of the highly customizable Chart of Accounts and Class feature to categorize income and expenditures and produce reports that are valuable to them. You are only really limited by how much detail you want to input to the transactions.

Cons

ADP Vantage HCM

  • While ADP Vantage is a one-stop-shop, it's still made up of different modules that don't always play well with each other, leading to disconnects that affect our employees' experience with the system.
  • Customization to suit your organization's needs can be limited - we need to be able to house far more data in client-customized fields than are available to us.
  • Requests for new features and improvements to functionality are added to an "enhancement queue" that appears to be so long that it may take years for your requests to be implemented.

QuickBooks Pro

  • Depending on the financial institution used connecting to automatically download transaction is tricky
  • Renaming rules in the online version is not user-friendly and defaults on its own lumping most transactions together (IE: everything that comes in as a check # becomes renamed to the last vendor a check was written to & recorded)
  • Desktop version is much more user friendly in general than the online version

The software is pretty straight forward, it does what I need it to do, and there is no-deal killer issues creating a need for other software. Continuing with QuickBooks makes sense as being familiar with QuickBooks Pro prevents the need to try to learn a different software, and knowing how to use this software already is a big reason to stick with it long into the future.

QuickBooks is readily available and simple to learn to use. Many people can start using it with ease as it is very intuitive. The problem is that no accounting knowledge is required (or introduced) so if you have no idea what an expense is or what an asset is many items can be misposted in the wrong category causing your books to need a lot of work with an accountant.

Get transferred a lot between people. Have gotten disconnected and it is impossible to get back to the same support person. Seems like always get the incorrect department for my issues and I have to be transferred. Sometimes the support people are very helpful and polite. They try to help, but are not always able to. Some support personnel are clueless when it comes to some issues.

Best thing I ever did was to attend a two day training seminar on QuickBooks, I learned an immense amount in a short time with hands on training by experts. I strongly recommend such training for anyone using any part of the software. It will pay for itself in the first month.

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.

We implemented the software ourselves. The training we received on the software was done by taking a community course teaching us how to use QuickBooks. It allowed me to get started with some basics of how to use the program and have not needed much assistance since completing the course work.

Alternatives Considered

ADP Vantage HCM

There is good and bad with any software that you choose. In the selection process, our organization had narrowed it down to SuccessFactors or ADP Vantage. Both had their strengths. In the past, I've used JDE, SAP, and Optimum. Most of my experience is with JDE. Honestly, I could give you pros and cons with each one of them

Return on Investment

ADP Vantage HCM

  • So far this product is not what we were looking for in a product. We had one that worked well and worked for us. Being put on a product that is not fully functioning for what we need and being told that it basically is what it is and we need to learn to deal with the new product is not the best customer experience. I am hoping that through enhancements that this product lives up to promise that was made when we were told we were moving to it.
Nicole Walsh profile photo

QuickBooks Pro

  • The positive impact has been that using QuickBooks, we have built a robust consolidation model for our company's entities.
  • Positive impact has been that we now have standardized reporting using the QuickBooks P&L reporting and Balance Sheet
  • The positive impact has been tracking AR/AP.
