We have been live on Activity for exactly 2 months. Aside from the normal "frustration" involved in any major software switch, it has been a good transition. The team that has guided us through this process has been amazing. They are pleasant, helpful, calming, knowledgeable and professional that know and love the product they represent. We have a completed system with multiple cost centers within multiple departments and Activity, from the first months close, gave me everything I needed with the push of a button. If it was not built into the basic program, the transition team built it for me. I am very happy with my decision.

Pros

Flexibility. This software gives me everything I need. We import time from our time clock. Payrolls used to take over two hours, now they take about 10minutes. I love the reports I am able to pull down. I was concerned about being on the cloud - new experience for me, and thought it that it might not respond quickly or be secure but it is. I love the flexibility of being able to log in from remote locations with ease.

Cons

I think the terminology the software uses was the biggest confusion. If you have occasion need to do more than one payroll in a day, you have to go through a few hoops to get there. There are more steps to every process than I am used to, but, I have the flexibility to correct a coding error or void a transaction without making a journal entry which is wonderful.

I use this software every day for a multitude of different job responsibilities. It is very user-friendly and has many features that help you if you're not sure where to go next. There are built-in functions that make sure you don't try to skip steps in the process and do certain tasks prematurely. The different reports you are able to generate are very helpful. The customer support is also amazing. Everyone is willing to work with you on any issues or explain anything to you whenever needed.

The product has many features, much more so than I use. It is not a user friendly product in my opinion, but all of the pieces are similar, so once you are used to it, it makes sense. Also, the support staff is incredible! They can teach you whatever y9ou need to know.

It has been good to learn and use. Some of the features take some time to learn and how to create reports is not always the most intuitive. But with the great support at Activity, they help make it easy.

Pros

Great support and has the functions to do everything I will want to do. The company is also very willing to listen and look at expanding with 3rd party companies for integration to make my life easy.

Cons

Some of the reports and seem to take a while to build - you almost need a coder's background to make them. And it seems like there are too many options or buttons to click when trying to put together the information. Which is great, but can be a burden at other times.

Advice to Others

Get the support and learn from the pro's. They will help make your life much better in a short amount of time.

Activity offers an extremely flexible and robust system. Their Payroll module in particular can handle any situation you throw at it. They have multiple reporting functionality, including in app views, pdf reports, data stream export to vba application (Excel, Word, etc.), and most recently OData streams powering their REST API. Their security is robust and flexible. They use VBA macros to power in app automation (called Bots) and Excel based data imports. Their customer service is fast, knowledgeable, and friendly. I couldn't be happier with an accounting system.

Customer Service is what this company is about. Not only is the software incredible, but their customer service that backs it up is what counts for me. The response time to any email query is almost instant - and not a robot reply. Sometimes I feel like I'm their only customer! I bet they say the same thing! :)

I should clarify - the reason I contact customer support is for expanding my knowledge of the software. Not because it isn't working properly. Yes, there is a learning curve with this software - there are lots of details to learn but I think that's because its so powerful. There are sometimes quirks but the 'patches' come quicker than the user spots them.

My bank reconciliations are the easiest I've ever experienced, AP and AR reports are extremely detailed and very customizable. We recently started using the Asset module. We used to have a very cumbersome and very large excel spreadsheet - no more spreadsheet!

Updates and improvements are always happening and they listen to their customers needs and wishes.


Pros

The depth of what it can do.

Activity HD has been a great asset to our organization. The features are helpful and allow greater time management for our payroll department. The greatest part of Activity is the customer service.

Pros

The different modules available for human resources and payroll. There are help tabs that bring up step by step instructions.

Cons

It can be a bit hard to "drill down" to find something.

Advice to Others

If you have any questions check the help tabs. These have really made my life easier.

MBF has been a user since July 2012. The software has allowed MBF to become more efficient and productive. The software is very powerful, and the customer support MBF has received has been exceptional.

Pros

The data that it allows MBF to capture and report on.

Cons

Its complexity - which I believe is due, in part, to our company's complexity and uniqueness

Easy to use and whenever I have a question, I get an immediate response - answering my question in 90% of the cases on the first reply.

Pros

Very easy to use, once it is set up. Easy to import and export massive amounts of data, whether it be employee based data or invoice/payment based data.

Cons

There are no basic templates to start up with. If you are starting from scratch, you must build everything from scratch. Chart of Accounts, Pay Codes, Financial Statements. Perhaps some predefined templates to choose from - at least to get started - for those that want to be more involved in the setup. nQativ does a great job setting it all up for you - but once again - you must know what you need and want.

Advice to Others

The ability to look at totals on the fly without having to run reports is a time saver.

I have been using Activity for about 3 years. It is by far my favorite accounting system. The payroll module is by far the best and most comprehensive in-house payroll system I have ever seen. We run 5 unions through it as well as a variety of different pay scenarios. There is also a built-in PO system that works for the entire organization. Everyone in my organization is trained on how to use and report out of Activity. The biggest drawback is its flexibility. I highly recommend this program, especially for Performing Arts companies.

Pros

Customer Service, Reporting, and customization.

Cons

It is very flexible and you need to know what you are doing when you set it up.

Advice to Others

nQativ is a dream to work with and I highly recommend you ask for a preview before deciding on any accounting software.

We brought this product in as a temporary replacement for an out-of-support legacy system. Within six weeks we had the legacy data converted and were up and running. The application was so intuitive and easy to work with that the learning curve was practically non-existent. Since go-live five years ago, it has gained business popularity and expanded areas of use. Future expansions are also being discussed.

Great software. I've been using Activity since version one (1) and highly recommend the product.

Pros

Easy to use; extremely capable & flexible; great support;
Meets needs of most business environments. Best product for the investment in software.

Each update/version offers more capability, features and ease of use.
This is the only software I have used where the upgrades are totally painless. All upgrade conversions are handled with virtually no manual work required. Compared to Great Plains and Solomon, which I have used, Activty is heavenly.

Cons

Some of the documentation a little vague as to where to fix warning and/or eror messages.
