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!

If you are a big company and have an active accountant then this system can be for you, it has many options but you need dedication. But the price starts from €39 and then you are not there...Most of the time you need other options to make it complete. Like ERP functions + €199~ want to book hours? +€129. And this is all per month... It goes up so fast that it's not interesting for small companies. When there are better options on the market that are even free...

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.

Exact Online

  • Complete pack with many options, use it as CRM, ERP or simply for your bookings.
  • Many connections with external programs, webshops, etc.
  • Automatic backups.

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.

  • Support... It's bad, and when you want to stop or step back it's near impossible.
  • Price, they tend to increase it without warning, and with all the extras it goes up fast.
  • If you wanna spend all your time in accounting buy Exact... It can be complex and many handlings needs to be done.

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.

Exact Online

I would not select Exact Online, but I can direct you to better options. Due to the high price, getting behind the competition and support I would suggest options like Zoho Books for you bookings, or CyberStockroom as ERP. And here in the Netherlands e-boekhouden.nl is a real nice, cheap, and fast working booking platform for the smaller companies.

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.

Exact Online

  • Negative: High costs and implement time turned 1 client in to the negative, and after 2 years of use wants to stop.
  • Positive: Once an ERP connection is running you can automate a lot in the process.
