Accounting Seed

Accounting Seed is a great solution for businesses looking for reliable accounting software. It offers all the features needed and works as expected. In addition, it is not as pricey as many competitors and therefore a great choice. I would recommend it for both startups and established businesses.

From my perspective, it is useful in a scenario where your company makes and stocks standard products with standard materials which have standard lead times. If every project is unique and needs different resources, and needs special material with different lead times, then Encompix may not be suited aptly in such scenarios, as the scheduling is not static or simple here.

Pros

Accounting Seed

  • Fully integrated into SalesForce so financial information is linked to all aspects of the organization.
  • Customer service is excellent and with timely and helpful solutions.
  • Upgrades are announced well ahead of pushing them out. Accounting Seed handles all the effort. When upgraded, you are assured there are no problems with it continuing to work with your other applications in SalesForce
  • Being built on the Force.com platform, many applications are available to add to the Accounting Seed application to expand its abilities.
  • Customization is simple and integrates across all aspects of SalesForce.

  • Materials or purchasing module is good
  • Accounting and milestone payments are easy to use
  • Purchases are very detailed, and we can see when any line item has been ordered or received

Cons

Accounting Seed

  • Custom reporting seems cumbersome, but it could just be that we need better instructions, more examples, maybe some more canned reports. My company needs the ability to compare multiple years, and more than one budget in a report - we start with an approved board budget and then we reproject each quarter.
  • Non profits need to print financials by restriction level - this has also been very awkward - all the data is there but I have to piece it together in an excel spreadsheet every time I want it.
  • In general, the materials needed for non profits is not as accessible as it could be.

  • Custom Reports

We seldom have had to use their support but when we have, they have been responsive and actually were able to answer our questions in a simple, nontech language. You don't have to be a programmer to talk to them!

Alternatives Considered

Accounting Seed

Honestly, Accounting Seed was the only one I focused on when looking to switch from our existing program. It showed in the partner app store and stated it was created native to SalesForce. As I read through it's capabilities, cost, etc., I knew it was the right choice.

Aptean Encompix ERP

Materials module in Encompix ERP is more robust over the Abas ERP. We had previously used Abas before Encompix, and the reports are more robust in Encompix, and custom reports were possible. Bill of Materials can be uploaded in Encompix, unlike Abas. Item Masters feature was available. Vendor cross reference and performance tracking are some good features as well.
