Chose Sage Intacct
Sage Intacct was the best stand alone solution to meet our needs. Financial Edge did not integrate well with Salesforce. Accounting Seed is not a mature application. And NetSuite is trying to do way more than we need.
Chose Sage Intacct
Sage Intacct cannot be compared with any other accounting application since it is the best, safest, advanced and unique application for financial management. I highly recommend it.

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.

It worked well for our company, and we have multiple entities in multiple industries. The hardest part of our implementation was combining all 40 charts of accounts into one big one, so I would be careful with that for sure. The other big hiccup was with a third party that was not as ready for the go-live date as they indicated, so I would say just keep on top of them, especially if they do not have direct API integration.

  • Sage Intacct filters lists for easy access.
  • The drill down feature is phenomenal; I previously exported data to Excel and summarized using pivot tables and with the reporting capability and flexibility at my fingertips, I have to power to enable other users to drilldown and lookup status of payment requests and such independently.

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.

  • I have to spend a good amount of time going into scheduled reports individually to change the subject, date, etc. I would like to make the change once and impact an entire group of scheduled reports. Maybe be able to control the time of day the reports go out instead of when they do go out now.

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

The ease of use as a seasoned user is wonderful; however, new users struggle to adapt to the program efficiently. Better training videos--all in one location--would be beneficial. The use of a "sandbox" environment is a great tool for new employees or for the fiscal department to test certain journal entries or other transactions to verify accuracy of data.

There has only been one occurrence where Sage Intacct was not available to me, however I had already been working a number of hours trying to get a project completed. It honestly allowed me to step back and take a much needed break.

Performance

As fas as integration is concerned I don't feel this slows Sage Intacct down at all. However, sometimes I do feel it takes some larger reports more time to load due to all the detail. As well as, I "move very fast" in my motions so sometimes I double click on fuctions too quickly and the system seems to think that I have a duplicate request.

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!

Only a few times have we had to reach out to support, and every time we did, we received a relatively quick response and a solution was found fairly quickly. Only once was there an issue that took longer than a week to resolve, but it still did eventually get solved.

I have taken in person training classes at several of the annual Sage Intacct user conferences. It is very interactive and the trainers are very easy to follow and understand. They are great at getting everyone in the class involved. They also make sure everyone has learned to task before moving to a new one.

It was great for generic training but we had the system modified by our third party implementer and a lot of that was not covered in various training's that we received or took online. Attended Advantage last year and that as super helpful in learning a lot of the intricacies of the system.

I would not use a thrid party administrator to implement your system, especially if you are going to be modifying the system at all. Use Intacct implementors as they will be able to better support you on any issues that come up after you go live.

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.

Sage Intacct is more user-friendly compared to NetSuite however, I prefer NetSuite's report builder. Sage Intacct has multiple report builders but it is often a learning process to know which ones to use and you may find yourself switching between the two tools often. Although, NetSuite shows comparative financials and multiple currencies without needing to create a custom report. Sage Intacct's help and support are a lot easier to work with compared to NetSuite. The rest of the modules are virtually identical; so it comes down to the trade-off between these two features.

Return on Investment
Accounting Seed
  • Business users save time sending payments to suppliers and reimbursing employees since it is just by one click.
  • The three-way POS match ensures that figures match on orders and invoices before paying suppliers.
  • Capturing data on reports that are not submitted, approval times, and policy exceptions.
  • Expense management and time tracking enable us to view the exact time taken to complete projects and the exact amount that should be paid.

  • It has been very helpful to have [...] software that has more remote capabilities since more people are working remote these days - approvals can be done in the system.
  • It is helpful to be able to attach documents to an entry, such as a JE or an AP invoice.
  • Training on the program is expensive (at least for a fairly small nonprofit organization!), so it has been a little difficult to learn on our own as we go - not everything is as intuitive as you would expect it to be.
