"My experience with Patriot Accounting"

Pros: The way Patriot Accounting enables me to automate all accounting at ease is the best aspect ever on my user end.

"Basic Accounting Software, but it gets the job done"

Comments: Very good. The customer service is superb. They answer the phone and are very helpful. If they don't know an answer, they find it out and get back to you. Email support is good too. The software is pretty basic compared to Quickbooks but if you don't need all those fancy features as I don't, it gets the job done. And the price is much better than Quickbooks. They have a bank reconciliation module, but I don't use it. Highly recommend for small businesses.

Pros: Started out on the package almost 5 years ago. It was pretty basic then, Patriot has added a steady stream of features to it each year. We don't use a lot of them however. I like the dashboard. If you are using the Payroll module, it's totally seamless integration. No frills accounting but that's ok because that's all I need.

Cons: Can't put a check number on a Quick Pay when you are running it. I use manual checks and there's not way to do that, except by putting the check number in the notes. If you are using printed check stock, that would not be an issue. Reporting is a little thin, but it gets the job done. The Financial statement is a little weird how it calculates owner's equity but my accountant reviewed the numbers and said it is correct. If you have accrued liabilities, They use "modified cash basis" which it also odd vs. Cash Basis. No Statement available to send out to customers.

"From QB To Patriot"

Comments: Good some ways, frustrating in others. Software is easy to work with, but is too simplistic in some ways.

Pros: Moving from QB was fairly easy. Invoicing was failry easy to pick up and use.

Cons: You need to have the ability to use batches for payments received and it would be nice if the payroll psoting was broken down by department when posted to G/L.
Vendor payment process is silly. You have to go to multiple places to just pay a vendor bill.

"Honesty"

Comments: Patriot software is great for a small business tho it is a little clunky its workable.

Pros: Recording payments is very easy tho at times I forget to hit the save button. Also the payroll is very easy and smooth to use.

Cons: Cant partial pay a invoice (like sending a deposit) very annoying. The whole invoice part is very clunky not smooth at all. Same with seeing Bills from vendors. Also on invoicing It would be nice to be able to have spaces in the reference (we use addresses and codes). It helps our customers see what address we billed for. I wish you could also on the invoice have the comments above the billing portion. Overall a little bit of letting us change the format of some of the built in forms would be nice

"Patriot Software"

Comments: I have lots of questions on bank reconciliation. The customer service help I received on my various questions was excellent. Everyone is so knowledgeable and very pleasant.

Pros: Customer service is top notch. When ever I have a question, it is answered either by chat, phone call or searching through the system. Very user friendly.

Cons: I don't like the preset invoice number when creating an invoice. I would like that to be blank. I have my own invoice number to enter, so I need to delete the preset before entering my own.
