Accounting Seed

The ability to see detail in the data is second to none. The ability to tie into the same data base as other salesforce products is huge. I do believe you need an on site expert. I have found my staff hesitant to "explore" the world outside of their routine. There are certain functions - like accounts payable - that are very similar no matter what program you buy, but it would be helpful if Accounting Seed put together some "Best Practices Procedures" for the A/P person to review and teach themselves. As the manager, it should not be up to me to have to retrain every person that steps into the position from scratch. How much nicer it would be to have something in the knowledge base or in the Accounting Home page that would direct new hires!

It does work if you have years of experience with it so you know how to make it work. I cannot recommend this software to anyone. I never thought much of it to begin with, but after using it for 10+ years, I have an even lower opinion of it.

Pros

Accounting Seed

  • Ability to create custom reports on the fly.
  • Sharing/flowing information across Salesforce project pages.
  • My favorite, saving tons of time by having all information in one location, not having to stop and compare Salesforce reports to a separate accounting program reports.
Pamela White | TrustRadius Reviewer

Aptean Made2Manage ERP

  • Shop Floor Manager add-on helps with production costs.
  • The scheduling and planning functions help us stay lean on the floor and keep costs down
  • There are a ton of reports so you can get the data you need.
Brandon Pelinka | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Accounting Seed

  • Most accounting systems have a number of canned reports included with the system. Accounting Seed has a few limited canned reports. These have grown over the past three years.
  • Though using the Salesforce reporting feature makes reporting easy, you are limited by what the Salesforce reporting system can do.
  • Budgeting is connected to project tasks rather than general ledger accounts.

  • The reporting of Made2Manage is a bit of a disappointment. We have purchased additional reporting software.

Alternatives Considered

Accounting Seed

Much easier to have accounting software be native to Salesforce. That's the main reason we went with Accounting Seed and are happy to have made that decision. We also love the customization abilities - just as easy as adding any field in Salesforce.

They worked in a similar manner. I was not an admin when I used Oracle though.

Return on Investment

Accounting Seed

  • We are too soon into the process to answer this. Our year end is June 30 and our audit will take place in July and August, with completion in October. I am very happy with the program and look forward to the next year being more efficient with my time, but I cannot determine an ROI benefit at this point.
Gayle Ulrich | TrustRadius Reviewer

Aptean Made2Manage ERP

  • The annual cost for support is ridiculous for what you get with this product.
  • The amount of money we have tied up in Made2Manage makes it difficult to cut ties with it and find a better solution. We are basically "held hostage" to our current situation.
