Likelihood to Recommend

ADP Workforce Now

Well-suited for companies with 10 or more employees. The more employees the more efficient ADP is for all aspects. Less appropriate for small companies where payroll and reporting is very manageable.

QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions would be great for a company that is buying products and just reselling them as-is. It is great at keeping track of quantities remaining from previous purchases and time periods, adding new inventory purchased, and subtracting inventory sold. It would also work well for a company that purchased materials to manufacture items for stock, and then sold those stock items. QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions does not work very well for manufacturing of one-off or custom products as each item has to be "built", whether it is 1 item or 100 items. It also does not have an easy way to account for scrap or materials damaged in the manufacturing process.

Pros

ADP Workforce Now

  • The blending of all aspects of HR in ADP makes the system use very fluid. We like that we can have the employee in the system from hire to retire.
  • Allowing employees to have access to their own information is very empowering for them. We like that employees can look at their benefit enrollments, tax information and address along with their payroll history. This is very empowering from an employee standpoint.
  • From a manager standpoint I feel that the system gives the manager great power to make decisions. It can be simple things like workforce planning but also things along the lines of performance evaluations and annual reviews and pay increases.
  • Reporting abilities are AMAZING. You can get a report on basically anything you want in ADP. It can be a challenge to find out how to get that information into a report but the Customer Service help when it comes to custom reporting is great.

QuickBooks Enterprise

  • Class Tracking - allows you to produce a more detailed Profit & Loss Report
  • Advanced Inventory - keeps track of your inventory along with Fixed Assets
  • Sales Tax - Paying sales tax with the Sales Tax Liability Report gives you the breakdown of the different fields the State Tax Department requires
  • Chart of Accounts - When updated or changing an account code, it automatically changes the history of all the entries made in lieu of manually changing all entries
  • Home screen - It is mapped out for you to enter your business entries clearly
  • Reconcile - Reconciling the bank statements is very eary

Cons

ADP Workforce Now

  • The time and attendance portion could be more robust. If you have employees with multiple pay rates, pay types, and pay additions this may be a task to setup. My current company is driven by cost numbers and I we had to partner with another company that is another part of ADP called IDI in order to make things work.
  • Sometimes when working with records it is difficult to manipulate historical data. I guess maybe this is a good and bad thing because you don't want it to be easy for people to manipulate data, but if terminating an employee was a mistake I would like to easily be able to delete that record instead of rehiring.
  • The accrual setup is one of the biggest issues I have had with ADP. From the setup to execution this is a project that requires constant review even after the process has been completed.

  • Importing and exporting large lists (chart of accounts, items, customers, vendors).
  • Bank reconciliations could be more intuitive.
  • Upgrade the interface to a more modern look/feel. Something inviting.

We'll renew because we know how to use it and I have enough experience to troubleshoot when our bookkeeper has a problem. And it's a good product that I think fits our needs perfectly!

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.

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

The instructions from the recruiting agency on how to use the system was pretty straightforward. It provided step-by-step procedures on where you would need to log in your hours as well as what you would need to highlight (i.e. regular, overtime, etc.) detailing the type of hours that were worked overall. The handout also provided some pictures of the application

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.

Implementation

Either assign more than one specialist to the implementation process, or assign less clients to the implementation specialist. The process requires attention to detail and the ability to test and re-test as well as verify the information. It also requires a lot of back and forth between the client ant the implementation specialist, so they need to be readily available during the whole implementation process.

Prior to our switch to ADP in 2009, we used Abra and had to manually enter timecards and record time. The flow in ADP Workforce Now is wonderful!

Return on Investment

ADP Workforce Now

  • I handle all payroll aspects and the administration of our benefits, ESOP and 401k. Before ADP, I had an assistance who would key hours into our old system. Had so many key errors and we no longer have that since the employees clock in and out on their computer. Payroll is completed so quickly that I have more time to focus on other issues.

QuickBooks Enterprise

  • The program allows us to know in real time where our business stands financially.
  • The program does not integrate well with other software programs such as our database, Weblink.
