Handi Tax and Handi Ledger

No problems to solve. It is a great program and does what it is designed to do. Simple to use and navigate.

Pros

We have been using the software for about 30 years and love the ease of use. Makes tax return preparation easy.

Cons

The errors have always been a bit odd. I think they should show the item number of the error for each error. They are at times, cryptic.

Satisfied Handisoft User

Overall completely pleased with Handisoft. Never had a problem which could not be solved or at least explained. Works brilliantly most times, which is important for smaller operators who don't have onsite technical help etc, only actual accountants.

Pros

Integration between Handisoft & Handitax. Also between Sage One and those two modules.

Cons

Sometimes support is needed urgently and due to demand this is not always possible. Also most support staff are excellent at their jobs and are more helpful than the very odd one who just doesn't try as hard.

Reasons for Choosing HandiSoft

My first accountancy employer used Handisoft so I am familiar with and appreciate it's many good points.

Good effective product

Ease of use, low rate of error or interruption of service and effective for the purpose of build allowing you to extend the product with ease if needed.

Pros

Ease of use and flow between modules - makes thigs easier rather than consuming time

Cons

Our system is server based and over the last two years as the product has become more cloud based the desktop version has lost small funcionality that can provide annoying glitches

Reasons for Choosing HandiSoft

Server focus allowed for better secutity and had what we needed without pushing what we did not yet could be added on to as our needs expanded - we only want what we need not to be sold what we will not use effectivly.

Reasons for Switching to HandiSoft

MYOB had too many glitches and was not built at the time fro the funcionality or purpose of operating in an accountants office environment.

Disappointing

Experience over the past 12 months very disappointing. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] have tried to assist, I comment these 2 staff members, but they are trying to help so many practices that it is difficult I feel for them also.

Pros

Handitax is good. Handiregister is good.

Cons

HandiLedger was good but without Accountants Cloud addons required in the new environment, no one wants to rekey data from other programs like Xero. Now we have to buy HandiLedger and Final Accounts. The manuals for the new Final Accounts, Tax in Cloud, Accountants Cloud are poor. Really difficult to train staff on new software and then you are required to pay more for training.

Reasons for Choosing HandiSoft

Previously, when we were all on servers Hsoft was a great product, but now?

My Review

Overall we do enjoy using the software, however better support is a huge bonus for us and could one day be a reason for us to switch to another product.

Pros

This was an easy to use product that works in well with our business systems.

Cons

However, when there are any problems with the program or questions we have it is difficult to get in contact with someone who is able to help. The email response is usually received the next day and if it is not the perfect answer or the team don't have follow up questions, it can take up to a week or two to fix something that could have been a 5 minute phonecall.

Reasons for Choosing HandiSoft

We were already familiar with this software.
