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!

E2 is great at getting you information via reports and you can drill down to specific details. This has helped us calculate hours, costs and track non-conformances to allow for improvements.The scheduling module is complicated and Shoptech does not offer much in the way of virtual training on implementation. We are paying for onsite training and implementation. All other aspects are pretty straight forward.

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.

  • Bill of materials
  • Subassemblies
  • Inventory management

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.

E2 Shop System

  • Annual maintenance costs for updates and support is rather costly.
  • You must really think about how you will use E2 so when you implement the software it is right the first time.
William Grimm | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
David Jacoby | TrustRadius Reviewer

E2 Shop System

E2 certainly was the cheaper of all the systems we looked at. But like so many other things you do get what you pay for and it proved to be a bad investment on our part.

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

E2 Shop System

  • Allowed us to streamline production process by printing a job traveler with manufacturing steps for each job. Previously, we used a punch clock to track time and did not isolate what steps were needed to do each job. This allows us to calculate costs much better. The ROI on calculated costs is high.
  • E2 can track non-conformances. By tracking time to fix manufacturing defects, we can focus our attention on corrective actions by priority. This will reduce common failures and increase our profitability. This ROI is very high as well.
