"FinancialForce Accounting (FFA) is a significant step towards centralizing your business data!!!"

What do you like best?

Can be customized and optimized to automated many redundant processes (highly recommend partnering with the right Implementation Partner (consulting team) to build this out). The initial investment (time and capital) will be the difference between an amazing, streamlined, and efficient Accounting system and one that does the job.

What do you dislike?

Not so much a dislike, as something that new/prospective users need to understand: DO YOUR IMPLEMENTATION THE RIGHT WAY! Fully commit your organization and change management practices for 1-2 years (depending on complexity, etc.) - Don't "phone it in"! Over-allocate funds to this project, get the "nice-to-haves", don't put it off. In order for FinancialForce Accounting to transform your business, you need to be prepared for transformation, internally. This will enable you to get everything you could imagine out of this system and will truly transform your business.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make the switch - The best positioned and forward-thinking companies will centralize their business data, with Salesforce being an obvious choice. With that, it just makes sense to have your Financials in the same place to truly understand your business's performance.

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

By having our Financial data (payables, receivables, etc.) centralized alongside our CRM data, we've opened a new world of opportunities with regards to Analytics - Enabling us to operate in a leaner, more efficient, and forward looking direction.

"The most comprehensive accounting application, period."

What do you like best?

FinancialForce's extensive resources (documentation, video training, and community) make learning the application possible without consultants and formal training. I couldn't be more impressed with their all-in approach on the Salesforce platform. FF documentation is as good as you can find in any other native Salesforce platform application. This made implementation so much easier than other ERP applications. FF customer service is equally as impressive: when there are issues to deal with, you get fast responses and talk directly with the subject matter experts.They follow up until the issue is resolved using proper case management.

The application itself is tried as true, despite being a young application. It just flat out works. The more I learn about the platform, the more I can leverage FinancialForce and vice versa.

I was also so delighted to find out how much power comes with the FF license, for example - you get Conga licenses!

What do you dislike?

Toggling between page views is a little tedious at times and makes administering certain pages a little harder than expected.

FinancialForce Reporting is quite powerful but the learning curve is steep. It required a developer consultant too to manage Visualforce page templates. But the tool is quite powerful so that was somewhat expected.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would not try to use cheaper alternatives. FinancialForce is an incredible application you can rely on.

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

What problems are we NOT solving with FinancialForce Accounting?!! We integrate with our manufacturing ERP (Rootstock) out of the box and enjoy all our data going through one roof (SFDC). We now have a 360 degree view of the customer as we originally envisioned 10 years ago when we embarked on "CRM".

What Accounting solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

FFA has a tractable multidimensional classification of timetable,with an augmentation of the fitness for multi-currency and multiple organizations exchange taking care of.its between business diary selective of permits communicate of expenses between businesses or specialty units

With FFA,you breach regard indiscreet switching diaries to execute collections and make sense of fundamentally aggregate ,year to date spending plans of the company for every period or jet ongoing perceivability with client and job based dashboards. I really like this on FFA

What do you dislike?

Data storage -FFA and SCM records covers alot of RAM on the device you are operating which is really disgusting

Slow on use plus action view is totally the most unpleasant in comparison with other accounting softwares .in general,the software is prone to constant lags

Genrating of scheduled reports in most cases does not work at all when using FFA

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Any small or mid sized business looking for an accounting software really need to have a look on FFA,its one of the best as far as a user is concerned although not favourable at all for any big entreprise

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

"FFA covers all your financial transactions "

What do you like best?

FFA has an option of organising goods and services in a set order which shows a good visibility of the company operations

As we definately know we are in an era of cloud based softwares, of the association in a period of breaking boundaries of making financial related frameworks available,FFA software satisfies this fully.

FFA is simple to use with a short expectation to learn and adapt with all the intensity of the cloud and the incalculable advantages of capacity limit

What do you dislike?

Space-FFA and SCM records takes a larger portion of the data storage in our company limited other softwares

Intergration with other softwares and platforms needs to be upgraded that are not supported by salesforce

Besides this too,i find the software quite comfortable working with

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I should reccomend mid sized business that targets improving and upgrading their daily business management to take advantage of this user friendly software

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

Automatic billing and tracking history on finances besides generating reports on the company which portrays a clear picture of the company future.FFA has enhanced time saving ,efficiency and conveniency in our company

"FFA is a robust and flexible accounting solution for the Salesforce Platform"

What do you like best?

Because Financial Force was designed as a Salesforce native application it offers a great deal of flexibility and customization to our unique business needs. It is fully Lightning compatible and integrates easily with a number of third party Salesforce exchange products to extend functionality. Conga, Avalara and Chargent are good examples.

You can take advantage of all the automation and robust reporting solutions which Salesforce offers. FFA has an active and helpful user community. The case support system works very well and most problems can be resolved quickly. FFA uses an agile development model and takes many user ideas and incorporates those in their frequent version upgrades.

What do you dislike?

The core accounting product has good documentation but some other components are lagging on good documentation.

Care should be taken when planning your implementation to understand how some of your choices will impact the meager data storage limits that Salesforce provides. You can easily exceed these limits, forcing you to purchase additional storage at high cost. If you run a lot of small transactions instead of fewer large transactions and employ multiple FFA products, data flowing between them using intermediate records can exacerbate this problem.

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

We employ Financial Force Accounting and the Supply Chain Management (SCM) product to run our daily operations. As a food processor in an increasingly challenging regulatory environment, FFA and SCM play a key role in maintaining the integrity and quality of our coffee and meeting the diverse needs of our customers.

SCM in particular was selected to solve many technical challenges around sourcing our coffee and managing and managing our small batch, made to order production process.

We run multiple brands as separate companies and FFA's support for multi-company with a single chart of accounts was a better fit for our inter-company accounting than our previous ERP solution.

Being able to customize our business accounting to fit our process instead of the reverse is very important to us.

"The overall experience seems smooth but speeds seem slow "

What do you like best?

the wide range of functionality allows users to be able to include additional custom details that help with reporting on the user side. I like how clean the application looks.

What do you dislike?

the upgrades do not fix everything that seems to come up wrong. I had to download a new add-in from the website and it was broken. I had to reach out to the Community to ask for additional assistance since the Contractor we had with Financial Force could not give additional details to the software she said i needed.

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

We are solving the issue we were having with accuracy in reporting. our ability to build and upload the reporting functionality has helped us not only cut back on our closing time but has allowed us to report more accurate numbers for each month.

"How financialforce improves your accounting and sales process within your company"

What do you like best?

It's like a board, where you can download information regarding your sales, products, customers, employees and partners of the company, where the software, and serves as a consultant, the indications and how the sales, what strategy you should use to more clients, more new prospects or clients, it is very complete, where you save a lot of time, even personal, saving in costs for the company.

What do you dislike?

Absolutely nothing, this application seems innovative, super complete, full of tools to do any task, create or make an investment plan, complete a healthy, efficient and efficient accounting process, especially transparent, and the most attractive thing that is update in real time

Recommendations to others considering the product:

a lot of advertising, social networks, posters

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

with this application in which he agreed in the trial period, he began to download the information to perform a pilot sales and billing plan, only with these two priorities, since for any sales company, the most important is to carry out a real-time control of the updated billing and know how the software stands out in the search for potential customers, an excellent tool for our company.

"It's OK once you get used to it."

What do you like best?

For us, the most helpful part of using FinancialForce is how well it integrates with Salesforce. It's also nice to have a web-based system to use anywhere.

What do you dislike?

It seems like basic functionality is lacking, particularly where financial reporting is concerned. We are spending a great deal of time exporting information to Excel and creating several financial reports OUTSIDE of the system. It also doesn't work well for 3-way match, having to use bolt-ons and add-ons for a purchase order system has not been easy or ideal.

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

Once we learned all its ins and outs, FinancialForce has worked OK for us. Not sure of the benefits or problems we're solving by using it. Nothing, to me, makes it stand out.

"good linkage to salesforce - not built like typical accounting packages, but in the end powerful"

What do you like best?

it's integration with salesforce - so that workflows and management are integrated across different funcationalities.

The reporting is very powerful.

I think the customisation options are powerful too - but you need more salesforce knowledge to take advantage of that.

What do you dislike?

it's built in quite an un-intuitive way for an accountant. Many separate fields and some small items cause a bit of frustration (eg you can do an aged debtor listing - based on date, but not based on period - so it's a job to reconcile the ledegrs).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

you need to be on salesforce to make it worthwhile. If you are then it is a good idea

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

It's a powerful platform, that we have common across the organisation.

"It is a user friendly software whereby as user you get all the information at the click of a button"

What do you like best?

Reports generation is very easy according to your specifications. Most of the packages like accounts creation, journals posting etc are very easy to prepare for the user.

More attention is required when inputting data otherwise simple mistakes may cost you a lot as the software is a garbage in, garbage out.

What do you dislike?

so far non have I come across, it might be because of the packages I for one uses.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For those who deal in complicated accounting which requires more tabulation of information for good decision making then you need to migrate to Financial Force Accounting. I can guarantee you that using Financial Force is a good deal you can't get from any other accounting software suppliers. Try it and you won't regret.

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

When you realise some mis-postings or errors you easily correct and the software updates to your liking.

You are able to generate as many reports regarding the information you would like to analyse.

"your accounting solution"

What do you like best?

I like using financial force because we have both our operations and finances under one login and this reduces the amount of data entry. Operating in the same system has helped us reduce the time spent on duplicate data entry. It also have various automated features which improves on the efficiency and effectiveness of the system. It is also cost effective as minimum training is required and manual activities are also reduced. It is integrated with other systems such as Salesforce.com thus customizing and reporting are easy

What do you dislike?

Upgrading is a long process since there are many steps involved

Recommendations to others considering the product:

FinancialForce Accounting is ready to help you grow your business. Customer care support is very good and the response is usually faster incase of problems

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

Data entry challenges are now solved since all operations are done in one login. This saves a lot of time and also reduces the risks involved since the system is automated. Costs have reduced and we are able to reinvest in other sectors.

"Intricate System"

What do you like best?

If you are familiar with Salesforce platform, you'll learn hands on within a month. You can import the Salesforce data into your general ledger on FinancialForce. It is a definitely a tractable system within small (private) firms. It is useful for financial institutions, as they can tract foreign currency data in the system (which not many other accounting platforms offer). The data can be divided into different departments, but all in a collaborative page.

What do you dislike?

It does take time to get yourself to familiarize to customize and get used to the heavy data integration platform for FinanialForce. Especially when inputting large amounts of client data, it lags although they say the program has been on constant update for faster speed.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do compare with other softwares, maybe use for a month to see if it implements all the procedures you need for the firm.

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

It might not be user suitable for big firms, as it does take up a lot of data storage and is difficult to implement in a short amount of time.

"Continued Improvement (internally and to the product)"

What do you like best?

The tagging which is possible on transactions gives real value to slice and dice data when analysing, Assisting FF to develop the product is also a huge plus point. It's great that we're listened to.

Reduced month end close from ca 4 weeks to 1. Full reporting package sent into departmental heads monthly to tell them where they are financially. Dashboards created for each department head

FFR & XL+ have been a revolution, really helping us create our monthly reporting pack.

What do you dislike?

Can still experience lag with the system, and Action views is not usable at present. Think sometimes the new functionality isn't released with enough impact that it's difficult to know exactly the new features and how we roll them out in ouor org.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keep highlighting problems when they arise, and engage with the FinancialForce community, there is a great knowledge base across other customers.

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

Reporting information has improved ten fold. We can now drill down on the data to get a real insight about what the numbers mean. We can push out departmental dashboards to the exec team, to show them their own financial position vs budget which adds real value to them.

"A software that streamlines the activities in a single ledger."

I like the way you show the accounting reports, the balance sheets, and the way in which financial operations settle, nowadays you need a software that keeps organized and advances along with the current competition, I like the book's broad and As it is integrated into its own cloud, bank reconciliations fit perfectly.

What do you dislike?

It often happens that sometimes the system is very slow when it is overwhelmed by data, and that in itself slows down the work of the day, as well as generating scheduled reports sometimes does not work at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this product because at the time it helped me a lot, and it was of great support for my company I mean that I help with taxes and the different currencies of other countries, where our branches are, with the management of purchases and expenses in cash, it is a very flexible product.

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

"Very convenient when using with SalesForce, but not overly user friendly "

What do you like best?

I like that it sits on top of Salesforce, which makes it very easy to do billing for our existing opportunities.

It is easy to create different currency invoices and to consolidate all our international financials.

What do you dislike?

It is not very user friendly. The reports are a bit cumbersome and I mostly always have to download a few reports and do vlookups in order to get the results I need.

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

We had to manually upload invoices into quickbooks, which led to a lot of human error. This way we have easy access to invoices through the opportunities we have in Salesforce and the process is a lot more streamline.

We also needed a product that will help us create invoices in different currencies, which Quickbooks didn't allow.

We now have the possibility to consolidate all our financial from all our foreign entities.

"Customer centric approach"

What do you like best?

I am happy with the investments that FinancialForce is making in reporting, analytics and ERP integrations. Our customer service team has been very helpful and responsive to our needs as a growing business.

What do you dislike?

Apps and reporting allow for a lot of customization, which has generally been useful but can be daunting for some basic processes. FinancialForce Reporting is overly compex. Reports may time out due to data limitations.

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

The integration with SalesForce has allowed us to prepare reporting and dashboards that are beneficial to our Operations, Sales and Executive teams.

"With all the power of the financial cloud "

What do you like best?

As we already know, we are in the age of the cloud, of the connection, in the era of breaking barriers, of making financial systems accessible and easy to use. It is an ideal tool, easy to use, with a short learning curve, with all the power of the cloud and the countless benefits of storage capacity. In a world of non-financial finances, you need to be creative.

It really is a very friendly application, easy to use and to learn, with a creative and friendly graphic interface. The billing and cash flow modules are really well designed. The cost-benefit ratio is ideal for small businesses, the storage capacity is high, and has good user support.

What do you dislike?

Obviously as companies grow, new needs arise, as security requirements are increasing, for certain types of businesses with sensitive financial information management, they require systems, tools and more traditional applications, in order to comply with certain regulations. One of the points of improvement of all the tools based on the cloud is how to be competitive in places with connection problems and access to the cloud, they must offer gadgets that ensure operational continuity.

The great point of improvement is the integration with other tools and platforms not supplied by salesforce, to be able to develop the level of penetration and use of the tool to increase.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a widely recommended tool for small businesses, who want to improve their daily management with a friendly application, easy to use, with modern appearance and with all the power of the cloud. Basically it is aimed at the non financial financial segment, entrepreneurs who know how to do their business and need a program that suits them.

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

The implementation of the tool is very easy, the learning level of average urinals is shortened quickly, the document management improves exponentially, as well as billing and cash flow management.

"FinancialForce Review"

What do you like best?

Everything is integrated with SalesForce allowing data to flow easier and less chance for mistakes.

What do you dislike?

The limitations on what we can do and what we can customize. It is expensive to have custom work done and some features that are standard with other products are not found in FinancialForce. Ensure that everything meets your use case. If not, you will have a long road ahead of you.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ensure it meets all your needs

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

Having an all in one system with SalesForce and FinancialForce. We are able to build better reports that integrate both SF and FF. FF's reporting is more dynamic and fluid than SalesForce and it allows us to analyze fields and objects that we were not able to analyze with ease before.

"Excellent ERP that is Seamless with SalesForce"

What do you like best?

I like that we use 1 customer record for everything in SalesForce as wells as in A/R. No more reconciling a customer record between two diffewrent systems since FinancialForce is natively built in SalesForce.

What do you dislike?

Procure-to-Pay has limited workflow ability, and is a basic tool at the moment. They also do not currently handle encumbrance or commitment accounting.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure to do substantial, live demos, asking a lot of questions. Have the consultants do walkthroughs on how FinancialForce interrelates with SalesForce, and have them walk through the entire process from a new customer on the SalesForce side, all the way through the impacts in FinancialForce.

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

No longer needing to maintain two record sets for our customers between our CRM and ERP.

"Review from a developer's view"

What do you like best?

Same with other FF productions, it has a very powerful support team and a very short response time . Other than that, FF accounting also have a lot of useful features like billing, forcasting and generate history report. It integrated with salesforce very well and very easy to setup(only a send a email to their onboarding team ). Their are also a lot of configurations you can change to fulfill your requirement.

What do you dislike?

The performance of FF accounting is really not very good, though I know this is mostly because of the restriction of Salesforce platform. When you do billing for big projects/accounts, it cost more a minute to generate the bill. Other than this, the document of FF accounting is not detailed, you will be confused if you are not familiar with it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have decided to use salesforce, then psa accounting maybe the best accounting service you can find. It may have some problems, but you can trust the support team. They will help you in time.

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

We are using this product to do automatic billing, this saved our finance a lot of time. Also, we have a detailed history track and we can generate a report to see what we have done and what our feature looks like.

"New User"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that the system is customizable, we were able to configure the templates to replicate what we were use to in our old system.

What do you dislike?

The reporting is a bit hard to configure. I have had a hard time creating the necessary reports from FFR so that I can use them in FFXL. I am confident that once I have everything mapped out further that the reports will be fine. It's just setting them up that is a bear.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend it to others. i forgot the mention the other great part...THE COMMUNITY! I love the fact that I can go to a place where there are others who are users etc. who can answer questions about issues, or where you can offer suggestions. Really great.

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

Saving time. Our company used FF for our A/R but not for the rest of our accounting functions. With everything in one place we no longer have to download reports.

"FinancialForce Accounting"

What do you like best?

The fact there is a seamless flow between salesforce, PSA and FFA. There is now only one version of the truth and finance staff can change from Data reconciliation inputters to Business analysts almost instantly.

What do you dislike?

sometimes there is a bit of lagging jumping from one object to another.

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

no longer are there loads of different out of date spreadsheets, reports are in real time. Month end has been cut by 2 days and there is a much better understanding of the transactions in the accounts. People also spend tens of hours less a month manually entering data. XL tools has made uploading PIN's a doddle.

"Great product"

What do you like best?

FinancialForce is works flawlessly with SalesForce making everything flow smoothly from Lead to Cash to Accounting.

What do you dislike?

We have millions of transactions and transaction line items and currently there is no functionality to store this data outside of SalesForce which increases our spending on storage. FinancialForce is currently working on a storage solution and we can't wait to see the functionality they create.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great product and once they determine a solution for storage it will be the best product out there

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

Our business is very detailed billing down to the line item level. FinancialForce created some great custom functionality for us that allows us to bill, match and report on our data down to that level.

"FinancialForce together with Salesforce makes a perfect 360 degree view of your customers "

What do you like best?

FinancialForce just becomes part of Salesforce, it allows automation of invoicing and payments from Salesforce and best of all gives you a complete view of your customers easily and is always up to date.

What do you dislike?

Because it is not native to Australia, a few functions like Bpay uploads are not possible (as far as we know).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have Salesforce it is a seamless integration

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

We now do invoicing on demand for services that have complex funding as these are created via clicklinks directly from Salesforce. Clicklinks have allowed us to automate accounts functions that were previously time consuming and boring, also removing errors. Customer Care Users can create invoices and payments without knowing any accounting as it is all automated.

"Straightforward Implementation and Use"

What do you like best?

Ease of configuration and setup. Once you have your data together, you can be up and running in hours. All data residing on Salesforce improves our overall productivity, we don't have to search for data in multiple systems.

What do you dislike?

Would like more flexibility in creating and configuring invoices, more ability to build visually. This is somewhat more tool than is needed for a small company. It is best suited for medium to larger sized businesses.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great tool, and the integration with Salesforce and FinancialForce PSA makes it nearly required for anyone with services delivery.

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

Integrated project billing, ease of follow up and reporting.

apart from this accounting tool showing a lot of advantages,it at times also fail to handle its operations properly due to;slow in its speed,may take almost 24 hours so as to give feedback.it is also difficult in implementing and this discourages the users in using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

accounting force is the solution to any financial issue,its reliability gives assurance to users and therefore it is the best accounting tool ever.try it now

"Happy Financial Force Customer"

What do you like best?

Single office - total transparency across entire office

What do you dislike?

Poor financial reporting (until today with the release of Einstein Reporting)! We were very frustrated with not having presentable Financial Reports within FFA. FFR is so awful compared to what we were used to with our prior accounting solution that we didn't even bother learning it. We use XLPlus 100% for our financial reporting,

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great product and now with Einstein and the direction the company is going we couldn't be happier.

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

Great business analysis, transparency of potential problems, better forecasting, improved processing efficiency, improved response time back to our customers, significant improvement in profitability reporting for both the executive team and the sales team.

"FFA Experience"

What do you like best?

The most valuable aspect of FFA is it's integration with PSA/ Closing billing events allows for an easy integration into FFA invoicing.

What do you dislike?

I still find it difficult to run certain basic reports and the fact that drilling into transaction detail isn't a standard feature on P&L and balance sheets feels outdated.

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

The PSA integration has helped to ensure data integrity between systems and reduce external reconciliations. This has been a nice time saver.

The integration of our PSA data and our accounting data across our multiple orgs.

Get very specific and run through your processes in detail to ensure it can handle everything you need.
