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.

I think FENXT is well suited for medium to large sized organizations who are willing to make an investment in their systems. I do not feel this would be worthwhile for small organizations or ones who do not prioritize their database systems.

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.
Rickey Funderburk | TrustRadius Reviewer

Financial Edge NXT

  • Data entry is much easier with NXT especially for accounts payable
  • Reporting is fantastic with the ability to drill down in the reports to the detail and to export reports in more consistent formats (PDF, Excel)
  • Bank reconciliation is a breeze with the cash management capabilities
Pamela Wittmayer | 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

Financial Edge NXT

  • The dashboards need to be imported onto company website for board review
  • The financial reports generated within the program should be as appealing (not so canned) to the ones we have to format in excel
  • Implementation costs could be a lot less

There aren't too many non-profit specific financial/accounting software solutions available. Even so, Financial Edge NXT meets the needs of our staff and allows us to operate efficiently.

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!

Excellent support given by people who fully understand the system and your question. Multiple channels to access support, and an easy-to-use tracking system for support requests. No language barriers, and people unafraid to admit they don't know the answer. If followup is needed, they get back to me when they say they will, and they keep after a problem until it's resolved. I LOVE BLACKBAUD's SUPPORT!

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

Financial Edge NXT

I have used other products such as Banner at previous jobs. When I came to my current job, they already had Financial Edge in place. It was easy to learn and more user-friendly than Banner and other programs I had previously used. We converted to Financial Edge NXT shortly after I started working there. The advantages of Financial Edge NXT are a great benefit.

Return on Investment

Accounting Seed

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

Financial Edge NXT

  • Positive impact on our desire to 'modernize' (i.e. getting a system that looks and feels more contemporary than our previous accounting systems).
  • Generally positive impact in our ability to streamline or simplify some of our accounting processes that took longer in our previous accounting system.
  • Negative cost impact in that we pay much more for NXT than our old system. In retrospect it may not have been worth it to pay for 'NXT', and we might have just gone with the database view, as that is perfectly suitable. But admittedly I am not sure about the pricing difference.
