User Reviews of CenterPoint Accounting Software for Agriculture

I actually LOVE CenterPoint. I have been with Red Wing Software since the beginning of computers in farm offices. The program has far more detail than I use, but it is there to grow into. The virtual classroom training is a wonderful addition. We farm with three boys (and two grandsons) raising grain and lots of pork! The CenterPoint experts are so great to help me with whatever question I have. I could never do it without them!

I bought my first computer in1989 and Agchek in 1990. Big change from manual booking with pencil and paper and a calculator. Agchek evolved and I learned to use it the best I could. I never have used Quick Books I think it has evolved too. I hear alot of people happy to use it, I do not know what they or I am missing. I am not an accountant who probably appreciates all Center Point can do. I do not understand a lot of the hierographic used to simplify the program. When things were converted from Agchek to Center Point some of how I got my reports was changed and I still do not know how to find some things. Agchek is not even on this spell check. Somethings were just lost in the conversion.

The Good…

Its colorful screen. Support staff is good I just can not remember all the tricks to make it all work.

The Bad…

Not sure. In Excel multiple lines can be added or deleted at a click, only one line at a time can be deleted if you have unused distribution set up for a check or deposit. Secure that way so you don’t delete to much I guess. It is way more Horse Power than I can use or need. I could probably go back and run Agchek better than I can center Point. Tired of typing that’s all for now.

Same as above

We upgraded from Red Wing Payroll and AgCHEK Accounting software to CenterPoint Accounting and integrated payroll in January 2012. At first, it seemed difficult to adapt to the different types of menus, and new terminology.

But now it is July, and I am so glad that we made the switch. It now takes only about 1 to 1.5 hours to process the payroll from start to finish, not counting downloading the hours from the time clocks. The post and print procedure in the payroll program works so smoothly in transitioning from employee paper checks to direct deposit pay advices. No longer do I have to process two complete pay runs like I did before purchasing the Direct Deposit module, and the pay run report has all the net pay amounts broken down by the amount and the bank account in which they are deposited. After a few glitches at first, it runs without any problems.
