Our agency has a number of federal and private grants tied to personnel costs and allocations. DATIS e3 is extraordinary at allowing the end user to slice information as needed for complex reporting.
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

QuickBooks Desktop Pro is ideal for small business owners who want the option of controlling their management costs by maintaining accounting in-house with limited staff/budget. It is easy to purchase, install and use...especially for those who are not necessarily accountants by trade. I would say that above all, its simplicity is its best asset. It can perform the majority of accounting functions quickly and easily, and it counts many users...which is always an advantage in my opinion.
As a disadvantage, I would say that it does have a limit in terms of size of organization for which it be of optimal use. Its low price would be attractive to anyone when factoring accounting software costs, but the fact is that I have seen other software suites that are much more robust, and subsequently more viable for larger enterprises with more complex accounting needs....for example, multiple users, international accounting needs, etc...

Pros

DATIS

  • Position management
  • Payroll solutions
  • Open Enrollment/benefits management
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

  • Inventory management with low stock indicators has made it easy to ensure I have the necessary parts and supplies I need for my jobs.
  • Time tracking and being able to invoice on that time makes it simple to bill clients for work I have performed. Prior to QuickBooks I had time that I wasn't getting paid for because I would forget to invoice for it.
  • The extensive number of reports available as well as customizations allows me to see how my sales are doing on a regular basis in different areas of the market.
Bill Greganti | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

DATIS

  • Supervision documentation is difficult to use if the supervisor doesn’t adhere to the rigid schedule
  • Applicant site doesn’t automatically integrate with outside recruitment tools, so tracking of recruitment data is complicated.
  • DATIS has struggled with customer service support unless you have a dedicated contact
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

  • QuickBooks largest setback is the UI. It is a bit cumbersome and not entirely intuitive if you have never used QuickBooks before.
  • Occasionally QuickBooks has a hard time communicating with your bank, but it is usually fixed after a couple attempts.
  • QuickBooks does need to be bought each year to stay up to date.

Overall the features of PRO are just not enough to run a great company with good reporting and smooth accounting. If you're serious about getting your finances organized, step up to PREMIER or ACCOUNTANT. The small additional investment will be well worth while. And for truly world-class security and performance, please consider having your QuickBooks hosted on a virtual network. By doing this you will relieve yourself of the hassle, expense, and danger of making your own backups, protecting your QuickBooks files from viruses, and of course, getting hacked. A hosted platform will protect you from all of these things and make your QuickBooks files available to your team from anywhere in the world.

It does require some training to get used to, it's not really something you can figure out on your own. Every company is also going to have their own custom features. But, I feel really confident using it now after months of training and scenarios

I haven't had any major issues or complaints. I think there is always room for improvement; the software isn't flawless, but it has been super helpful in creating manageable financials for our start-up business. When I have needed support help, which hasn't been real often, usually the problem is resolvable. I have occasionally had to pay extra fees for help, but nothing unreasonable.

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.

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

DATIS

DATIS e3 is a different kind of system that may not be the solution for someone who is looking for an “off the shelf” solution. It is flexible and customizable to meet the specific needs of your organization. It is robust and thorough. They could benefit from spending money on a mobile solution.
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

I would recommend QuickBooks Pro over QuickBooks Online for almost everyone. It is easy to learn the basics, the payroll is so much easier to use, the reports are better and easier to use. The advantages of QBP far outweigh those of QBO. When asked, I recommend QBP almost every time.
Meredith Turcotte | TrustRadius Reviewer

Return on Investment

DATIS

  • DATIS has allowed us to spend less time on payroll processing and accounting of payroll
  • Better grant management allowing us to minimize the risk of unclaimed revenue
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

  • By entering our bills as they arrive we get reminders when payment dates are coming due as well as making it easy to track where the money is going
  • Invoicing has made tracking money owed to us easy and cut down on having to call people looking for money owee to us.
  • Quickbooks built-in templates for invoicing & quotes we have been able to have a more professional look to present to customers
