Accounting Power

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

This would work well for the back side of accounting...meaning after the invoice was created. If you need software to create invoices, this may not be the software for you (or at least you would have to do additional research on its capability). Other than that, it takes care of the majority of our needs.

Unit4 Financials

  • There is a lot of "building" when first starting up with the software.

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

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."

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

Unit4 Financials

Unit4 Financials is definitely much more robust than Peachtree or other software. I've also used SAP in the past and this seems to have many more capabilities.

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

Unit4 Financials

  • Because of the lack of operating statement reports, we've had to spend additional funds to use another system.
  • It does show data in real time, so no waiting for batches to update overnight.
  • You can do a lot of customizing to meet your own needs.
