User Reviews of Genesis Total Solution

Submitted on May 12th, 2023 by Valerie L Foster

We made the decision to move forward with Genesis for our fixed asset needs. The main reason was the simplicity of the program; not overly complicating the process. We had reviewed several options prior to Genesis that were simply overkill. The pricing was also in line with our expectations. Many of the other optins we reviewed (CCH, Thomson Reuters) we found to be very expensive.

Genesis Total Solutions is a 30 year old program that is showing its age. The demonstration showed it was NOT user-friendly as, in order to use it efficiently, one has to memorize a bunch of codes. The reports generated showed no thought to an ease of understanding. From the BRIEF look we were awarded, they appeared, for lack of a better word, ugly. And since price was one of the considerations I mentioned in our needs I was very disappointed to find Genesis was almost twice the price we are paying now for Quickbooks Enterprise.

We have been working with Genesis Total Solution for 2 years. They have great support - we have had great support everytime we’ve needed it. The software is not in the cloud. So far we are fine with it. It is very economical, which is one reason why we chose them.

It is a little antiquated but you know, it isn’t a bad software. I’m getting used to it now though. Genesis has been running pretty smooth for us. We’re using it strictly for checkwriting. We don’t have any general ledger or anything. Genesis Total Solutions has been pretty good for us.

I was a 20 plus year user on Quickbooks but with no on premise option availble for my current version, I had to look at alternative solutions. Genesis was an overall good program but in the end I wasn’t fully confident in their bank reconcilliation features and I preferred a little nicer interface.

We’re working on implementation right now. The software I had was compliant other than W2s for 2022 so we’re trying to get everything setup for the switchover. Very happy with support. Being a small shop, obviously the cost stood out to us.

The hard thing is after having used software for almost 30 years, its been a little bit challenging in the fact that it feeds opposite of what my software does. One feeds from the bottom up and one feeds from the top to the bottom. And so, it’s been completely opposite to what I’m used to for 30 years. That’s been the only challenge.

They’ve been good to work with on that and we’re getting through everything so its setup right.

My accounting needs are very limited but I can see that the program is a versatile platform than can accommodate a wide range of applications

The Good…

The fact that it allows the user to implement the program without being constrained by a “user friendly” interface. Bill provided excellent and immediate customer support.

The Bad…

I suspect that the reason I liked it may be a disadvantage to some users. A basic knowledge of accounting (mine is very basic) is probably necessary to quickly understand the program

Still trying to get used to it. It’s very helpful for inventory which is mostly what we use it for. Our restaurant manager and kitchen manager use it mostly for inventory.
