ACS - better than QuickBooks

I used ACS for a number of Dental practices' monthly financial statements.

Pros

I like the functionality and simplicity of the software. It is easy to track where all of the transactions are going and to edit or delete mistaken transactions. It also can import a spreadsheet of transactions all at once.

Cons

It is not very pretty or easily used by those without a background in accounting.

Good software, wish it had some better features

We are managing all of our tax projects within the CS Suite. From preparing the return, to tracking clients and where their projects stand, to sending and receiving client documents within the integrated "Drop Box" portal system.

Pros

The entire suite serves the purpose of getting the job done. We have several of the Suite programs and that has made doing things like sending tax organizer out a much simpler job within their interface.

Cons

Learning how to properly use the software within our unique environment has been a huge challenge. Google provides no help and their own "help and how-to center" only provides so much information. I wish their products integrated better between themselves.

All Encompassing Tax software

The CS Professional Suite allows me and my colleagues to perform data entry and prepare tax returns and other compilations with ease.

Pros

There are many different software products included in the CS Professional Suite umbrella. Each of these programs has its own pros but all of them allow tax and accounting professionals to serve their clients as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Cons

It's not really that user friendly if you are not in the tax or accounting field. It's also a bit pricey unless you have a sizeable clientele to support the cost.

Best Accounting Software Available

CS Professional Suite allows us to assemble our backup documents with ease for preparing both financial statements and taxes.

Pros

My firm uses the CS Professional Suite, including Workpapers, Fixed Assets, UltraTax, GoFileRoom, and Practice. Each software is perfect for our needs with extensive features included.

Cons

There is absolutely nothing I dislike about this software. It includes everything I need for accounting tasks.

Very average in most respects some products like practice are better than others like UltraTax

Good integration between the different products, but unfortunately to the exclusion of integrating with anything else.

Pros

Good integration between the various products. Good user interface design for some products like Practice CS but not for others. The tax product is generally very accurate once you figure out how to use it well. I like the multiple screen ability. The Practice product will allow you to open and sign in multiple times which can make up for the slow changing of screens. We tend to open a copy with the employee dashboard and then open another copy of the program to keep the client dashboard open so we can update projects and the like. This is the only way to deal efficiently with the slow screen changes. Good reporting, good support when calling in, but slow with email. Great diagnostics for Ultra Tax. The ability in Ultra Tax to open both input and forms screens at the same time is nice.

Cons

First it is 32 bit and so does not interface well with other programs. Runs slow because it can only take advantage of limited memory. Runs even slower if you have very many other programs open (outlook, excel, word, etc). Many features only work if you have an older 32 bit operating system. For example you cannot click the email address of a client and generate an email that also stays attached to their client detail unless you are using 32 bit email software on a 32 bit machine. The Ultra Tax user and data entry is one of the worst I have seen, very outdated. At times you have to switch multiple screens to input basic stuff. Trying to locate where to make an entry can be an exercise in frustration. Ultratax is very accurate when the return is completed but a mess when trying to figure out how to do data entry. Does not integrate with other calendar apps to get your appointments onto a preferred product for you calendar. You can only use the online version and access it or push everything up to the cloud for their mobile version. So the bottom line is slow, their tech support said they have no plans to write a 64 bit version, awkward data input for the UT product. Tax return data entry is about 35% longer than on our prior product.
