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.

BQE Core

For our application where we are a service organization, it fits well with project management and the time and expense entries that go along with that. We are still on the cusp of full invoicing from Core but it looks promising and a time saver instead of double entry. Updates and improvements seem to be a priority with the company as well.

Pros

  • Fully integrated into SalesForce so financial information is linked to all aspects of the organization.

  • 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.

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.

  • Reporting
  • Updating an invoice that has been created

While it takes time for new users to fully benefit and understand Accounting Seed, the user interface is amazing. It is relatively easy to use

It was doing the project management job from the beginning but now the company has stepped up with updates to payments, invoicing, and integration. They listen to customer suggestions and support has been great. Now the training we are receiving for integration with our accounting package has been awesome.

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!

Support is quick to answer and make sure that the problem or question is addressed. Training support is proving to be invaluable and we are hoping that continues through our move to invoice and take payments directly from Core and only push the financial information to the accounting program.

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.

BQE Core

We paid for BigTime and started to implement it so we could have one package with accounting as well. BQE Core didn't have the online payment selection and we had trouble years ago with integrating with QuickBooks. In trying to set up BigTime, the migration of previous and ongoing projects was going to take more time and data entry than was worth the move so we backed out. Now that Core has the online payment and integrations with QBO have evolved, we have stayed with Core.

Return on Investment

Accounting Seed

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

BQE Core

  • Pricing on Core and it's modules is competitive which helps with the bottom line
  • Centralizing one program for project management and invoicing saves time which saves money
