Accounting Power

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

Foundation Software

We have been able to use Foundation Software in almost every construction accounting situation. You can tell it was designed for the intricacies of construction accounting. While we have not explored it lately, the project management module was not ideal. Foundation Software knows accounting and is strong in that field. I think they would be best suited to stay within the accounting realm and focus their resources on that arena.

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

Foundation Software makes setup and data entry clean and straightforward. Even without prompts, a user would be able to navigate around the basic functions of the software. With a little training and the help manual they provide, a user can learn the system very easily. For those wanting to get deeper into things like queries and dashboards, they offer trainings and conferences that are helpful.

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 have used Foundation Software support many times over the last ten years. I have never had an issue they were unable or unwilling to address. Even oddities are handled quickly and resolved efficiently. I have also had customization done and was very happy with the customer support they offered in developing a query and report that would met our unique need.

Alternatives Considered

Accounting Power

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

Foundation Software

Personally,
I did not have a hand in deciding the software, but for our company is has not
led to increased productivity or made things easier. It has been more difficult
for payroll to be inputted correctly and the payroll reports for certified
payroll often come out incorrect and we need to manually figure out how to correct
the issues and get them in correctly

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

Foundation Software

  • Double input for payroll.
  • Certified payroll reports lacking.
  • Takes more time.
