Smooth operation!

5.0 2 years ago

Pros:

Intergration is a quick process with great customer support.

Cons:

I had to use the help desk for sick/vacation/PTO. Most parts of Patriot Software are intuitive, and you can explore till you find them, except a PTO adjustment.

Great software at a great price!

Comments: I love Patriot software. The price is amazing for all that you get with this software. I have had smooth sailing ever since I changed to Patriot.

Pros:

I am a control freak, so I like to do simple debit and credit accounting so that I can control everything going into my books. Patriot is easy to use and doesn't have all the what I call "noise" that other accounting softwares have. Some programs have so much fluff added to them but all I want are the basics and Patriot gives me that. This makes it easy to use.

Cons:

There are a few things in invoicing and bill pay that I might change but they are minimal. Other than that I have no issues with this software.

Alternatives Considered:

Harder to function in the program

3.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I am not an accountant and I am not very techy so when I request help I was told multiple times that they can't help with that that I needed to talk to an accountant. Some I thought would be simply questions for someone that was in a tech support position.

Pros:

I was really not impressed with anything about the program

Cons:

I do not like how the payroll software interacts with the banking reconciliation. It took me forever to align the checks for printing, finally figured out that the payroll checks aligned differently than the accounting checks

Patriot Software- it does some thing well, some things could be better

4.0 4 months ago

Comments: My overall opinion of Patriot is favorable. There is nothing that is show stopper. Everything is workable. I find overall the software is easy to use and you don't need an accounting degree to use it.

Pros:

It is easy to use. The A/R and customer invoicing work fairly well. Reports that are on the system work okay, but I wish there were more and some more flexibility. Customer service is great.

Cons:

Accounts Payable- There is no easy way to go into a vendor's file and see the entire payment information. You have to go to a billing report to see some info. There is plenty of room in the vendor payment heading to see each and every part of a vendor invoice number, dates account charged, date paid & check number. You cannot see all this now.

Easy to use, great US customer support, excellent pricing.

Comments: Very satisfied. I just love the cost, ease of use and bank syncing feature.

Pros:

Bank syncing is my favorite feature followed by US customer support personnel and price

Cons:

It did take a bit of forms and time to set up, but once you get through the regulatory requirements, it was very easy.
