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.

FinancialForce ERP

There are many lacking features so if your company is looking to grow, FinancialForce will not be able to scale along with your company. If your company is already past its growth stage and there aren't too many transactions to record, then FinancialForce may be suited for your company.

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.

FinancialForce ERP

  • Resource planning.
  • Hours tracking.

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

FinancialForce ERP

  • The revenue recognition module is very basic. The system does not create deferred revenue waterfall schedules.
  • FinancialForce does not have a way of handling prepaid items where the expense gets deferred into the future.
  • Although FinancialForce can create invoices, there is no way to connect payments to the invoice in an automated fashion. When payments gets entered into the system, they must manually be matched against invoices. It is not good for scalability.

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

FinancialForce ERP

Infinitely better. We are much happier with FinancialForce ERP rather than NetSuite. This allows us so much more flexibility and growth potential. There is a good chance we will use other functionality of FinancialForce in the future to stay within the same ecosystem. We selected FinancialForce ERP mostly because of its compatibility with Salesforce, as that is the hub of our business applications.

Return on Investment

Accounting Seed

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

FinancialForce ERP

  • Implementing FinancialForce stalled the growth of the accounting department. Because of the limitations, a lot of manual work had to be done in the systems and many schedules were kept out of the system. Instead of focusing on process improvements or, the accounting team had to do tasks that could have easily been solved with a more sophisticated ERP.
