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.

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.

Clearbooks

  • SaaS, so accessible by anyone, anywhere in the world via a browser
  • Clear and straight forward navigation
  • Good choice of management reports
Peter Cowley | 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

Clearbooks

  • Like any SaaS product, Clearbooks is continuously evolving and being improved
  • Some of the reports still need some work

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

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

Clearbooks

Clearbooks was chosen 5 years ago as our accountant recommended it. There is an element of inertia in moving accounts packages.

Return on Investment

Accounting Seed

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

Clearbooks

  • I am not sure that ROI is an appropriate measure for an accounts package. The cost is around £250/year, which is a tiny fraction of the cost of a bookkeeper/finance controller/finance director/CFO.
