Pros: Our business is complex with Grain operations, Livestock management, Meat Processing and Food Retail. Our bricks and Mortar operations are centralized in Alberta, Canada but other divisions span international operations.
 
Because of the variety of area's we are involved in we need customization that is easy to work with, and the ability to work with data in a variety of areas in a variety of sources. ActivityHD is the best tool I have and whenever a new opportunity arises in our business or a new feature is released, I'm always looking for what more ActivityHD can do for us. At the end of the day I know I have great training tools for my team and excellent support should I need it.  
 
Whatever business you are in, and whichever package you are considering.  I highly recommend to talk to the nQativ team about what they can do for you.  
 

Cons: The team at nQativ hasn't created a product which can clone me yet - but they are working on it :).

Simple, intuitive user interface.

Pros: The software breaks accounting functions into different packages that all come together and post seamlessly into General Ledger. You can link accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, and more, and with one click get full history on an account, vendor, etc. It is amazing. They also have an exceptional support/programming department that actually listens to the users and constantly improves their software.

Overall: The benefits are too many to count. Besides having ALL aspects of accounting in one software (including purchasing and fixed assets), it allows you to fully customize financial reporting, and the speed at which you can complete tasks is unmatched.

Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.

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.

Overall: 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.

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

Love it, great customer support.

Comments: 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.

Pros: The depth of what it can do.

Overall: 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.

Overall: 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.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you have any questions check the help tabs. These have really made my life easier.

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

Overall: 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: 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.

Overall: 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.

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

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.

Overall: 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.

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

Comments: 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.

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.

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

Pros: This system is very user friendly. Almost any problem or process issue I have thrown at Nqativ they have been able to solve inside their software. They have set up mutiple security features to allow for control implementation within the software as well as provide documentation to auditors for tracking. The system set up is in a format that the average user can understand and a more experienced user can make cahnges on their own as well. I think the best quality of the software is the customer support. Nqativ staff is available day or night and they make me feel as though every one of my issues is a priority not a nuisance. They have consistantly provided the type of support that makes this software invaluable to the end user.

Cons: The software is extremely flexible. This is a very good thing, but at times can be difficult for Nqativ to maintain all the variations. However, they are completely in tune with all of their sites.

Overall: I strongly recommend their software for any company looking for flexibility and accuracy in reporting.

Pros: There are many pros, but to name a few:

Activity GL rollup reporting capabilities saved me hours of manually updating financial statements each month. Can create comparative reports for management rather easily. Exporting data to spreadsheets is easy and fast - a "must-have" for year-end audit schedule preparation.

Activity AP and AR - I don't use much of it personally, but my staff loves it.

Cons: I can't think of any.

Overall: We have been extremly satisfied with Activity. The GL was installed in 2005 and subsquent installation of AP in 2006 and AR in 2009. We have been customers since 1988 using the prior software application. Great customer service!
