Both of these companies provide expense management functions.
[email protected] approaches it more from a timekeeping background, Compleat from a Purchase Order/Invoice processing background.
Both systems are simple to set up, or complicated, if that is your requirement.

It is not perfect, but
Ensure that all cells are locked through formatting.
Then in Review select Protect Sheet, give it a password that you can remember and click OK
Now type Alt+F11 to open the VBA Window then select Tools, VBAProject Properties, Protection.
Tick Lock Project for Viewing and give it a password.
I have found that doing this last step disabled 2 commercial password crackers in Excel 2007 and 2010, when someone did not want to pay me for making changes to something I had set up.
But, unless you want the 3rd party to be able to see the underlying numbers and formulas, I would print to PDF.

if not Windows 8? then
Stick to Windows 7

Has Windows 8 ever come in?
Not one of the organisations that I have visited since Windows 8 was launched have even bothered to look at it and they have no plans to do so.
These are also organisations that never implemented Vista.
It appears that many think that MS manage to get every other operating system usable (I won't say right) and so are going to skip 8 completely.

Infor SunSystems is configurable how you want ...
... is multi currency, multi lingual, and can report in multiple structures from any one business unit (company).
So you could have the French standard chart of accounts while reporting in IFRS, FRS101 and US GAP - for example.
Taking feeds from Excel is normal and there is an iXBRL solution.
If you are interested in looking at this in more detail contact me through a PM and we can set something up.

Build it in Excel?
I have a spreadsheet with the following columns
A Asset No.
C Date Purchased
D Depreciation Rate
F Accumulated Depreciation
G Disposal date
H Disposal Sale Value
I to AB Depreciation for year
The formulas in Depreciation for year columns automatically calculate in year of addition, not in year of disposal.
Works for me.

But how many employers won't be filing?
"after April 6th when there are 2,000,000 employers (or however many it is) putting FPS's in"
From recent experience, it appears that there will be quite a lot of employers who's software suppliers will not have their BACS software installed in time to do the April filing.
One company I am aware of will not doing April, another not April or May and HMRC are aware of this.

What about security?

Going forward, I would encourage you to use Microsoft's Skydrive. Get clients to save their Excel spreadsheets to there and then invite you to share the file. No need to transfer files between you anymore, just both share them from the same place.
This and DropBox, have the problem that if the file is then updated by the originator then the copy you have will change as well.
And I wouldn't want my accounts floating round in the cloud in an unsecured form. Get your client to close the file, then zip it with an agreed password on the zip file and email the zipped file to you. Agree between you which zip software you are going to use to avoid complications.
Otherwise it is just like writing things on a postcard and sending them off for anybody to see.

Other than in a few buildings
I have always found it to be as good as other peoples and I go to customers from Canary Wharf, through the City to the west end.
Did you change your phone when you changed networks?
Some phones certainly do not seem as good as others.

It depends on where you are.
"The service signalling is terrible. I am unable to speak to anyone while at home as I am breaking."
Well that is better than Vodafone, where I live as here people on Vodafone might just as well turn their phones off as they get no signal at all.
Which is odd as we can see their transmitter less than 2 miles away.
Agree that the recent system outage was a PITA, but after over 20 years with them, under one name or another, I still find that they are as good as any of the others, overall.
