Accounting Seed
I wouldn’t recommend Accounting Seed to enterprise companies. However, Accounting Seed is the best cloud accounting tool for small and medium-sized companies that are yearning to automate accounts payable and receivable, inventory management, and invoice customization in one integrated platform.

Expandable Software
Expandable fits our companies needs quite well to manage inventory, sales orders, and purchasing. We recently started to also use Expandable to track ECN changes. The ECN functionality is a little limited in the fact it is difficult to add descriptions or parts affected after it has been implemented. I would recommend having an additional program for managing ECN history

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.

  • Data entry on certain tasks can be very tedious (for example effected parts on an ECN)
  • Sometimes data connections for upload are very slow or just flat out fail multiple times. The problem is intermittent so difficult for support to track and fix
  • Certain fields cannot be pulled on a report and require engineering time to create a process to add functionality. It would be nice to have unfiltered access to all fields

Usability
Accounting Seed
It always works well. We've never had programming issues. Never. It is easy to customize. The system can grow with you as your business grows and changes. Being cloud-based you can work from anywhere. It is intuitive. You have all the features of Salesforce, like workflows, that work perfectly in Accounting Seed. Having that full integration with Salesforce allows you to see all our data in one platform

Accounting Seed
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.
