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!

It is good for payroll and for accounting but the reports for certified payroll are not adaptable to actual reporting and often do not fit the format needed and umber are not correct. The integration with other software and programs leaves room to be desired. Takes a while to learn before you get the desired results

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.

  • Web-based.
  • Work from anywhere.

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.

Foundation Software

  • Certified payroll reports.
  • Non-customized reports.
  • Security.

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.

Personally,
I did not have a hand in deciding the software, but for our company is has not
led to increased productivity or made things easier. It has been more difficult
for payroll to be inputted correctly and the payroll reports for certified
payroll often come out incorrect and we need to manually figure out how to correct
the issues and get them in correctly

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.

Foundation Software

  • Double input for payroll.
  • Certified payroll reports lacking.
  • Takes more time.
