Retail, professional services, non-manufacturing, or non-inventory-based clients are a great fit.

Dext Prepare (with Receipt Bank)

For organizations that require in depth detail in their financials, meaning detailed records of every expense, Receipt Bank is a great option. Accounting firms that are preparing the books for their clients in a cloud atmosphere will most certainly appreciate the ease of use provided with Receipt Bank. But for organizations that are small in number of employees, and maybe they all have company credit cards and no expense reports, Receipt Bank isn't necessary. It's still a "nice to have" software, but not required because these types of employees won't be keeping copies of receipts anyway.

Dext Prepare (with Receipt Bank)

  • Key metrics on the submissions by clients and any delays. This allows for early identification where client may be struggling to get the information submitted to Receipt Bank, holding up the bookkeeping processing and ultimately delays in delivery of information to the clients.
  • Identifying unprocessed receipts sitting in the clients Receipt Bank file.. This assists in managing internal workflow and aiding team members who may find they need assistance in completing key tasks.
  • Identifying which clients are using Receipt Bank effectively and which clients need assistance. This can provide the opportunity to discuss with all clients what works well for them and what needs improvement by sharing some of the wins from other clients.
  • Providing managers the ability to review with ease the progress of Receipt Bank processing by client and by bookkeeper. This allows them to identify issues literally before they occur.

It provides everything one needs for accounting services and then some at a price point that makes it very affordable.

It is very easy to use although some of the interface is a bit busy and there are a lot of features that I don't use or are not sure how/if I would use.

Needs some work. Support staff seem to be computer people, not accountants or users of the system. Their answers sometimes seem short and computer-based. Not answered in a way that says, "I have thought through this and here is what I see to do."

I haven't had to use their support - I assume it is good, but the story of not needing it is better.

I find Accounting Power to have more flexibility, power, and reporting capability than QuickBooks Online with a simpler interface.

Receipt Bank is superior to Wave in terms of its accuracy of reporting and allocating expenses. Even though there is a fee for Receipt Bank and Wave is free, the monthly fee for Receipt Bank is well worth the money, given the benefits

Return on Investment

Accounting Power

  • Allowed for standardized processes
  • Improved efficiency in disbursement processing
  • Bank feed is easily broken
  • ACH payment options are not well established
Steven Brewer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Dext Prepare (with Receipt Bank)

  • Saves hours per month preparing for BAS.
  • While it doesn't equate to a direct ROI in terms of dollars and cents the time it gives me back as a small business owner is time I get to spend with my family instead of the computer.
  • Nothing negative has been identified.
