I tried to google this Prosystem Fx, but no info on it. What is this and how to gain access? thanksMarch 6, 2018 at 11:29 pm #1726558AnonymousInactive
Lol, it’s tax preparation software by CCH. It’s what many cpa firms use as their primary software package.March 6, 2018 at 11:32 pm #1726567
Has anybody used both Prosystem and Lacerte? I've only used lacerte. I would like to know which is better.March 7, 2018 at 9:18 am #1726741AdamParticipant
They are similar..I've used Lacerts, Reuters, Pro Series and Pro systems fx..
By Far Pro Systems is the worst of the bunch..Lacerte I dont have a ton of experience with so cant speak volumes on..
Pro systems by intuit is BY FAR the most user friendly software.March 7, 2018 at 9:30 am #1726757ashl07Participant
I have, a smaller firm I worked for used Lacerte, I liked it but Prosystems seems to handle complex returns better but not as user friendly. (I haven't used Lacerte in a few years so it could have changed). I think Lacerte is less expensive too. We just moved to the cloud based CCH Access last year and I have a love/hate relationship with it. It runs a little slow but you can work from anywhere super easily.March 7, 2018 at 9:34 am #1726768ashl07Participant
Haha I guess “user friendly” depends on personal preferenceMarch 7, 2018 at 10:07 am #1726796
My firm pays $24,000 for Lacerte (6 users). I've been looking at other options that will allow us to go fully paperless. Thompson Reuters has a cool scanning feature that Lacerte doesn't have. Has anyone used that?March 7, 2018 at 4:19 pm #1727171AdamParticipant
I misspoke..I meant Pro Series is the most user friendly…Pro Systems FX Nothing is simple with that crap..I get the two confused. lol
But Pro systems is by far the worst..nothing is grouped in the same place. And you have to double check everything due to the software not carrying things over.
Pro Series and Reuters both have scan capability where you scan documents and it pulls all the info into the return form the PDF's so most of the data entry is done.
I'd say Pro Series is a good bet..they have smart vault which is a portal clients can upload directly to which carries over..March 7, 2018 at 5:57 pm #1727266Wanna_B_TXCPA2014Participant
My company uses a DocIt. Its pretty intuitive and we have few issues with the system.March 7, 2018 at 6:46 pm #1727296
@wannab, do you use DocIt with Lacerte?March 7, 2018 at 7:26 pm #1727311Wanna_B_TXCPA2014Participant
No they actually did a custom system for my company as we are a property management company and not a tax practice. I've been happy with system. A few kinks early on but nothing after that. We started using 12/2015.March 7, 2018 at 10:04 pm #1727633IwannabeaCPA2017Participant
Prosystem FX is not that user friendly. I use it from time to time mainly for recording depreciation.. I dont like it prob because I hate doing depreciation.March 8, 2018 at 12:20 am #1728016ForgottenOneParticipant
I am currently using Drake. I have not used any other software. Is there pros and cons between Drake vs others like Prosystem Fx, Ultra Tax, Lacerte, etc?
