"Developer"

What do you like best?

While I am not a full user, I did have to build alot of the logic that we needed to use accounting seed for our needs so I cannot speak for how the accounting is itself. As for the development side, it is pretty easy to build your logic to work with accounting seed. Without the ability to post/unpost certain record types via the provided apex methods, a lot of our logic would not be viable.

What do you dislike?

There are cases where a cash disbursement is created by mistake or something and it needs to be voided but there are no apex methods to do this. At this time, it has to be done manually or the logic has to unpost and delete it if it does not need to be reconciled.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before, everything was being done with Quickbooks and while this system does ok, it was a pain to keep it synced with the customers information and payments in Salesforce. With Accounting Seed, everything is now done in Salesforce, making it much easier to manage. The system can be pretty confusing to understand all the ins and outs of it without formal training becuase of how robust it is, but the documentation can usually help with that. There are still things I am learning but getting the hang of it.

"Accounting Seed is Flexible!"

What do you like best?

I like that we can basically customize ANYTHING within the app to make it work for us.

Anything WE can't do, our rep can!

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike much of anything at this point. We have, so far, had a great experience with AccountingSEED. All of our questions have been answered, all of our problems to date have been solved when we bring them up. The teams are very quick to get back to us if there's help requested.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you figure our ALL of your paths before implementing. There are so many caveats that need to be filled before you go live.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We found easier ways to keep track of our books, as well as making sure that all our billing is now streamlined and fairly automated. We also used to do most of our accounting in Quickbooks and now everything sits within our Org in Salesforce. It's awesome!

What Accounting solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Accounting Seed is a Very Robust Product"

What do you like best?

1. Ability to create truly custom processes and automations that make sense for our organization.

2. Ability to make customizations and developments on our own (internally and/or with third party developer assistance).

3. Integration with many different third-party tools - if you can't build something (or don't want to), there is probably a solution that already exists.

4. Ability to 'dice up' data and report on it in many different ways to get a clear financial picture of the organization as a whole from different angles.

5. Accounting Seed (with additional development) has allowed us to compensate our people in many different ways automatically, inside the system - no exporting, no spreadsheets, no manual calculations.

6. Overall robustness of the platform that allows our organization to scale.

What do you dislike?

The following are fairly specialized issues that we either resolved ourselves already or are fine 'living with' for the time being, but that Accounting Seed should address:

1. No 'ledger' view of accounts that show transactions and live balances. This information can be obtained through native Salesforce Reports, generated Accounting Seed Reports, or by hiring a developer to build out custom Visual Force pages or running calculators to do this. This should be provided out of the box.

2. Recording batch cash receipts is difficult - this should be an easier process to break up one cash receipt and assign it to multiple Accounts/Projects.

3. Doing many things in the system requires steps that seem very unnecessary. For example: Posting any record requires multiple steps - Approved, Review Posting, then Post (why?); Paying a Payable must be done individually, and requires multiple steps (again, why?).

4. No native ability to switch between Accrual and Cash basis (there are workarounds, but they require hiring developers, as we have done). This should be provided out of the box, or at the very least, Accounting Seed should make it very clear in its materials that it only does Accrual.

5. Customizing invoice, credit memo, account statement, etc. templates requires coding. We had to purchase Conga Composer to get client-facing forms that we need. That is unacceptable.

6. Cost - Accounting Seed licenses are not cheap, but be prepared for the real cost (in money, time, effort, and overall resources): a) adapting the system to what you need it to do; and b) adding in third-party applications for specific functions. Both get expensive quickly.

Finally, Accounting Seed did not do things very well 'out of the box' for our organization, but given its robustness and functionality after we customized it to our needs, we are happy with our decision to adopt it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

1. Really test it out before diving in

2. Ask the stupid questions - go through your existing processes and make sure that there is a direct comparable process/way to do something in Accounting Seed before doing a live switch

3. If Accounting Seed does not do something that you need, consult with a Salesforce AND Accounting Seed developer specialist (there are a few good ones) and get estimates for the builds

4. Test, customize, and get it to where you need it before doing a live transition

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Using one system for all of our needs without double entry required (Advologix + Accounting Seed). All of our data lives in one place.

2. Customizing the software tools we use to fit our unique needs.

3. Creating a law firm that is agile and flexible to needs of its attorneys as we grow.

"A step in the right direction"

What do you like best?

We transitioned to Accounting Seed because we were looking for an accounting solution that was cloud-based and compatible with Salesforce. This was our 3rd software transition in 12 years and by the far the quickest and easiest. Support was wonderful and ample training was provided. The knowledge base is there if you have more questions. We are pleased with the responsiveness and level of support provided by Accounting Seed. It far exceeds our expectations. The continual development of the software is also a plus. The product continues to evolve and we are grateful for that too.

What do you dislike?

Budget entry is a little clunky as well as updating them. Aside from that, I have no other dislikes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Explore Accounting Seed because it will probably work for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Efficiency. As a non-profit, we were entering donations in accounting software and donor management software. After the transition, we only have to enter donations once and they are recorded on both sides. Additionally, the data entry is more efficient and my bookkeeper is able to finish her entries more quickly.

"Easy to set up for an Admin with great support and resources"

What do you like best?

I was able to have a working demo of the software that allowed me to figure out whether this tool was worth the cost, as opposed to competing packages.

The training resources (knowledge-base, their university and direct support) are superb and easy to grasp from an admin point of view, and as a user point of view. For example, I asked for assistance with some asset and ledger and the support agent recorded two videos for me to give a visual aid and step by step programs. Really appreciated the support.

What do you dislike?

The only issues are that some features may be pushed out on a monthly basis.

Also that some of their visual force pages (such as PDF creation) are based in a Salesforce Classic format which can be very uneasy on the eye for the end user.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to finally keep track and automate reporting for our accounts team saving them countless hours of manual data entry or even corrupt data.

"Just What I Need - Accounting that is Native to Salesforce"

What do you like best?

I am a "power" Salesforce user and have always wished accounting could be managed in Salesforce, and now it finally can. I love not having to have a separate software to list accounts, contact, etc. I've already entered it in Salesforce once. Why have to enter it again somewhere else? I also like being able to slice and dice data based on custom fields and objects, combined with revenue. So now I can make reports that show revenue info, for example, and zooms in on specific categories / client types that I already created in Salesforce

What do you dislike?

Take a little bit of getting used to compared to Quickbooks and other accounting systems, but if you like Salesforce, you'll pick it up pretty quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great product and great support, too.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accounting and CRM all in on place. It's wonderful.

"Integrated to Salesforce, but poor execution"

What do you like best?

Data is housed on the Salesforce platform. But that’s it. No other benefits.

What do you dislike?

Nearly everything about Accounting Seed is a manual process that is locked down by Accounting Seed. Even though the data is on the Salesforce Platform, Accounting Seed has gone to great lengths to prevent customization of workflow & processes with their product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Perform an in-depth review of Accounting Seed before proceeding. Make sure that Accounting Seed’s manual processes will not cause undue additional work for your employees.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We converted from Quickbooks Enterprise and had the worst implementation possible. We haven’t solved any problems with Accounting Seed at all. Nearly every “problem” that we have had prior to Accounting Seed still exists and has been amplified.

"A Comprehensive ERP and Accounting Software "

What do you like best?

Everything on Accounting Seed is Customizable, and this makes the process of accounting transparent and accurate.

Secondly, Accounting Seed successfully integrates with other third-party programs such as Salesforce, and this increases the productivity of the tool.

Furthermore, Accounting Seed has all the accounting features, which helps us in preparation of the books of accounts.

The tool also helps us conduct some of our transactions online such as payments.

What do you dislike?

I still have two challenges.

One, it is hard to record a Batch of cash receipts and hence, one has to break them down.

Lastly, doing some recordings requires so many steps, and I find some of them very unnecessary.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is the need to test for Accounting Seed before changing your transactions to it.

Also, ask all the necessary questions to the support team and be certain it will solve all of your needs.

We have seen it working for our company though.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accounting Seed supports most of the accounting activities, which in the end facilitates the process of financial planning and reporting.

Again, we tend to customize the application to fit our extra business requirements.

"ACCOUNTING SEED PLATFORM. "

Accounting Seed platform has been of great importance within our organization. First, we have been able to customize all organization ideologies to fit all our clients needs to satisfaction.

Also this software is user-customer friendly as we have been able to stabilize all communication and ensure all clients needs are confidential. I love this software.

What do you dislike?

Firstly, we have been not able to deliver services promptly due to inconveniences since software's features are outdated. Also this software has high pricing regime which affects both small businesses and mid-sized businesses to afford and maintaining.Also payroll systems is not much convincing to new users.

"Integrated SF solution - life is good"

What do you like best?

We ran our business' books on QB but it was not integrated with our SF instance. Talk about a nightmare - too much manual entry led to lots of issues. Fortunately, we no longer have that problem thanks to the integrated Accounting Seed solution.

What do you dislike?

Would love for AS to have a Cash-basis feature. That said, there are some minimal workarounds that enable us to re-categorize for year-end tax reporting. Bank Direct Connect sometimes needs to be "re-managed", meaning we sometimes have to reconnect to the account in order to have it pick up the most recent transactions. It's just a bit time consuming when it doesn't need to be.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do not let the fact that it is accrual-based to negatively influence your decision to use this tool. While there not switch to move to cash-basis accounting, there are ways around creating cash-basis reports.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Eliminated month-end auditing between SF and QB. We now have more timely financial reporting - like, immediate! We can also easily link expenses to campaigns, projects and more. It is great to have one source of record that you can actually count on to be reporting accurately!

"Great balance of robust and flexible"

What do you like best?

It limits us very little to our seemingly unique workflow. It has just the right amount of accounting roadblocks in place to protect us from our selves but overall it does a very good job being extremely customizable to fit our need and doesn't get in the way like our last Salesforce accounting app did.

AccountingSeed also has great suppoort, very responsive.

What do you dislike?

Some of the UI on the "intermittent" screens (sales order to PO creation, PO receiving, Sales Order allocating, etc) are a bit outdated and difficult to decipher sometimes. Not the most intuitive screens to work with. Also, sometimes the accountingseed enforced error codes are quite vague.

Personally, I don't dislike this but if you are looking for a complete turnkey system with little to no customization required, this might not be the best fit. It appealed to us because we COULD customize and we wanted to but that might be a drawback for a company with less experienced internal salesforce admin resources or the inability to outsource that customization. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't require any code development, all declarative admin level items, but it is minimally configured out of the box.

Online help center leaves a little to be desired, several outdated videos showing the classic UI. Produciton quality of videos and specificity of the knowledge articles could be improved.

Lastly, their out of the box documents (billings, packslips, statements, etc) are very basic and limited editing ability. We had to customize and redo our own to get the right look and feel using another tool. (conga)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to capture our full accounting picture in one system. Everything from sales to customer billing to expense management, banking, reporting, etc.

"Test Drive before you buy"

What do you like best?

Building capabilities of reports/dashboards within Salesforce are extremely useful and helpful, assuming you have the ability to build them.

What do you dislike?

This software is equivalent to a vehicle in terms of cost. Make sure you do your research prior to the investment. While Accounting Seed is Salesforce native and you can integrate many of the bells and whistles from that platform, there are still a few hang ups in the day to day processes of data entry, which may require hiring additional help to get through the time consuming and tedious processes required by this my multi-step accounting software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Test drive before you buy. Spend the time to make sure this product will work for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We purchased the product and used it for 3 months. We then reverted back to our previous software. We loved the GL Variable & Project functionality within Accounting Seed and how it integrated with TaskRay and other Salesforce native platforms, but decided that the functionality of the other process of the system wasn't efficient in terms of data entry, data review and audit, or report exporting. There were also some issues with the Bank Direct Connect that created more attention than an Accounting software should require. We also have many expenditures on our Corporate American Express. Those transactions required us to enter them as a Payables Invoice and create cash disbursements. There is an option for entering a direct payment/cash disbursement, however that function does not allow you to enter to different GL accounts or different GL variables. Overall, the system was not for our organization. I will say that the staff was very helpful and the training process was easy and thorough. Accounting Seed University was also well laid out and easy to understand and follow with videos & step by step instruction.

"Accounting Seed Build"

What do you like best?

We have recently implemented Accounting Seed and it was a huge improvement from our previous system. We love that the system is built off of Force.com which allows us to make simple changes. If Accounting Seed is missing a field that better suits your business you can add it without writing code. If you have a good understanding of how Salesforce works Accounting Seed only enhances it.

What do you dislike?

We would like to be able to have a little more control over buttons such as Post. One of the Post buttons is stored within a managed package and we currently cannot disable this button for standard Accounting users. This issue is really the only thing that we do not like. The remainder of the program works well.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would strongly recommend that you hire a third party consultant that has implemented Accounting Seed. Our consultant was able to help us through the entire process because they understood the full picture. Accounting Seed did an excellent job with training us during the implementation process.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to speed up the sales releasing process, we were able to free up resources for two people that had to enter orders from Salesforce into our legacy system and we were able to provide them with a new role using Accounting Seed. Our previous sales releasing process took about 10 minutes to complete it now takes 2 minutes.

What do you like best?

That the product allows us to adjustment almost anything. We love that it is built off force.com and allows me to perform many actions.

What do you dislike?

We would like a little better control over the buttons within the managed packages.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Continue with the great support team that you have the support team is fantastic. Continue with the same on boarding process, we do recommend that you allow security permissions to limit access to certain buttons within a managed packaged, not all of our users should be allowed to post/unpost anything. We are very happy with the current product and feel that it was a great match for our company.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have always had a separate CRM system that wasn't connected to our accounting system. Now we have a 100% seamless integration. The benefits of the product are that with a basic understanding of Salesforce we can make a lot of adjustments.

I like this software because it has a clean,eyes appealing and very intuitive UI making its easy to use and configure.I like the way its easy to request free demos.The customers support offered is of top notch because they are very responsive and helpful.Again,I like the way this software integrates seamlessly with Salesforce CRM thus enabling us to perform a number of tasks and utilize multiple systems.Finally,I like Accounting seed because it has a powerful automation feature thus eliminating manual data entry and human errors by automating any process fast.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about this software is that it has more robustic features that requires good internet connection so as to run well and fast.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend this software because it fits the accounting needs of even small business enterprises.Again its easy to use and very user-friendly hence its worth giving a trial.

Eliminates manual work and human errors within our Organization by automating any accounting fast thus giving real time results that are very efficient and productive.Again this software keeps getting updated regularly without any additional cost.

"Ease of Project Tracking"

What do you like best?

We have 100's of projects going at any one time and we are easily able to track all the projects individually as well as accumulate that data into a total when necessary.

What do you dislike?

Accounting Seed is made to function within Salesforce, a CRM package. Due to that, I think it is as intuitive from an accounting standpoint as a stand-alone accounting package.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Learn all the functionality of Accounting Seed that you can. There are probably things I would like AS to do, that it actually does, but for which I haven't learned how to do yet.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I said, set up and tracking of individual projects is quite simple with Accounting Seed. We are a non-profit and these projects are the bulk of what we do (our program expenses). The projects are tied to SalesForce campaigns, so when a campaign is completed and a final evaluation is received, we know we can mark the Accounting Seed project as complete too (as long as there is a zero balance). It all works together quite well for us.

"The biggest joke in accounting I've ever used"

What do you like best?

To be honest, Accounting Seed, it's support team, and the overall experience has been a nightmare for our company.

What do you dislike?

This box won't contain the numerous things I dislike about this product. For industries that utilize data in real-time and don't have the advantage of being able to download data weekly to another accounting system, good luck being happy. We use this in conjunction with Salesforce and have been extremely displeased with the overall lack in multiple accounting areas. When we've tried to get any help via support the response is always that things are customized and therefore they can't help us in any way. Support people are nice, but the overall experience is bad because it seems like they will call everything customized, and also not take responsibility when they have a patch or release that causes your business to be at a standstill over changes. As an accountant with a long professional history with numerous accounting systems, this one is everything I wouldn't want in an accounting product. The audit trails offered are pathetic, and unless you'll have an in-house 24/7 admin with coding abilities, don't bother. Trust me, if we had ANY other option at this point we'd take it, but we don't.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

RUN AWAY as fast as you can!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
