Likelihood to Recommend

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.

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

  • 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.
Rickey Funderburk | 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

  • 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.
Gayle Ulrich | TrustRadius Reviewer

Aptean Made2Manage ERP

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

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.

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

Return on Investment

Accounting Seed

  • Makes operations a lot easier having everything in Salesforce.
David Jacoby | 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.
