What do you like best?

The Gravity application is seamlessly integrated with Microsoft Office(email, task, schedules), including user security (Single Sign-On). The system is easy to use while providing powerful capabilities, for example - easily creates intercompany transactions, multi or single company invoices, vouchers or journals. Customers are usually up and running within a couple of weeks. The system offers built in tools so you can create approval rules, quickly integrate third party solutions using automated flows (no importing). It is GAAP compliant and provides the ability for a single button correction with full audit trails. The ability to easily customize any screen or view listing without an consultant or worrying up an upgrade. Integrated job cost assures all cost are instantly tracked. Bank/Credit Reconciliation let's me create invoices, payments, vouchers or journal while I am reconciling. I don't have to enter this first. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The system currently doesn't have a fixed assets module. Would like to see an automatic revaluation for multi-currency. Would like more out of the box dashboards. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Gravity was built on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform which is different than Business Central and Enterprise. It provides the ease of use and flexible tools for integration. They are growing quickly and are using the latest technology innovations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Multi company reconciliation is very quick and easy. Knowing my true profit on a job including committed, actual and estimated cost, couldn't do this in QuickBooks. I can quickly see how profitable each on customers are. Being ability to see attached contracts, invoices or documents associated with a project, customer, vendor or anything. Ability to have a master chart of accounts, customer, vendors so I don't have to setup each time I create a new company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Our company has 9 different entities and we transact interchangeably. Not having to do multiple journal entries within each set of books has saved us a lot of time and manual entry! I also do a lot of data imports. You can create an excel template and import transactions for each entity in ONE upload! Gravity has been a great program for us and customer support has also been very helpful and efficient! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes reporting can be cumbersome due to the amount of data we have. It may take longer than usual to get reports up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our main thing was having multiple entities and intercompany transactions. We have cut our processing time down as Gravity automatically does the internal journal entries for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The best feature of Gravity is the ability to manage multiple legal entities and easily consolidate the financials. Before Gravity, our company used QuickBooks which made these tasks very time-consuming and inefficient. Thanks to Gravity switching between legal entities is as easy as selecting from a dropdown. The simplified workflow has saved hours of work per week. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only feature holding Gravity back is the reporting. It meets the basic needs, but it feels outdated, slow, and clunky. Reporting can be enhanced with PowerBI, but this is by no means an easy implementation for none-technical users. My ideal software would merge the rich feature set available in Gravity with the comprehensive and intuitive reporting from QuickBooks. I have been told that Gravity is working on pushing out reporting enhancements and assuming they hit the mark I believe Gravity will become one of the top accounting software on the market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The biggest problem Gravity solved for our company is the management of multiple legal entities. There have been noticeable savings in hours associated with the monthly/quarterly financial consolidations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

First off it is very easy to use. We are in the construction business and it is very important for us to pay our vendors when we receive payment from the job. With Gravity I am easily able to select what vouchers to pay based on job. This has really helped our cashflow, only pay when you receive. We have a couple of regions and it is very important for us to be able to accurately track and produce financial statements by region. With the strong controls in Gravity, I am able to require the region to be filled in on any transaction associated with a general ledger account and report on it. A single entry allows me to post entries to the region, job and work type. We have been able to grow our business by 300% with Gravity because we have all the details to manage the business. The screens are all customizable and I have been able to remove and rearrange the data entries screens to remove any fields that I don't use. This has made data entry much quicker and easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have been very happy with the system. I don't really like scrolling down on some of the screens to get to the distribution lines. I am reviewing the new release and everything is in tabs, which I really like. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We used QuickBooks before and this has really helped us grow our business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The biggest problem was getting accurate reporting by region and job. As well as managing my cash. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The multi entity capabilities are critical for our company(ies). We have nine+ entities and the time saved with the intercompany transactions has been a game changer. Only having to make one entry was a big reason we choose Gravity. A double bonus that it is built on the same platform as our CRM (MS Dynamics 365). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would love to see more efficient and standard reporting available in addition to some connectors to widely used products such as Concur and payroll platforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Being able to push a "button" to transfer clients and customers from our CRM into Gravity has helped save time and eliminate user error by manual entry. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The multi-entity features in Gravity are great - makes it so easy to create transactions across entities without having to move in and out of multiple datasets. One transaction creates and balances all due / to / from accounts - saves a tremendous amount of time and productivity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The import engine is part of the Microsoft Platform and can be slow on very large imports. Some imports have been streamlined by Gravity and as these increase, the Platform imports will not be an issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Managing inter-entity transactions efficiently allows for massive time savings without errors - month end processing is reduced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Mandy Vogt of Gravity Software

We are very sorry to hear about the issues you have experienced. We understand that the custom 3rd party workflow approval system you are using has caused some interference with Gravity's standard functions. We are already working with the 3rd party to get these issues fixed for you.

I love how user-friendly the software is to navigate and how much less we are paying per month!
