Accounting Seed

I wouldn’t recommend Accounting Seed to enterprise companies. However, Accounting Seed is the best cloud accounting tool for small and medium-sized companies that are yearning to automate accounts payable and receivable, inventory management, and invoice customization in one integrated platform.

If you have a programmer and are willing to let them learn the system and want software to function the way you run your business this may work well. If you do not have a programmer on staff and are willing to change your business to match the software but think in the future you may wish to modify your ERP software this may work out well. If you want something you can modify quickly this is not a good choice. If you do not wish to modify the code nor your business practices an evaluation would be required. It does allow substantial modifications, but there are areas it may not fit with your business so well. It is possible that Intuitive may happen to make the options you require available in the future.

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.

Aptean Intuitive ERP

  • Documentation. The design of en extensible system works well once you figure it out. Some things can be tricky and time consuming.
  • They provide no support for customizations. I can understand not wanting to help write specific custom code, but they refuse to even tell anyone what a method on a base class does unless you pay them $200 an hour.
  • Their proprietary design can cause modifications to take longer. If you use one of their forms you can not load it, you must call their launch function and put you code in the "Execute" method. If they were more standardized the documentation issue would not be so bad.

We have a lot invested in this from user education to customizations. It would be hard to justify the cost for changing.

It always works well. We've never had programming issues. Never. It is easy to customize. The system can grow with you as your business grows and changes. Being cloud-based you can work from anywhere. It is intuitive. You have all the features of Salesforce, like workflows, that work perfectly in Accounting Seed. Having that full integration with Salesforce allows you to see all our data in one platform

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.
Pamela White | TrustRadius Reviewer

Aptean Intuitive ERP

We select Aptean 19 years ago, most of the other SMB packages back then no longer exist. While we have discussed whether to consider other ERP systems here an there over the years we have always come back to the fact that our existing ERP system is well established and easy enough to maintain, and is cost effective

Return on Investment

Accounting Seed

  • Business users save time sending payments to suppliers and reimbursing employees since it is just by one click.
  • The three-way POS match ensures that figures match on orders and invoices before paying suppliers.
  • Capturing data on reports that are not submitted, approval times, and policy exceptions.
  • Expense management and time tracking enable us to view the exact time taken to complete projects and the exact amount that should be paid.
Kristen Corp | TrustRadius Reviewer

Aptean Intuitive ERP

  • Runs well without a ton of support
  • One server license required for site, can run several businesses
  • Concurrent licensing keeps costs down for global business
