Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Ideally it can work with any kind of retailer but workarounds and customisations required to handle deliveries.

  • Offline/semi-offline mode works well in areas where connectivity is an issue.
  • Pricing, offers and promotions can be configured exceptionally well in LS Retail.
  • POS interface design is simple, robust and easily configurable.
  • Security wise there is enough detail available to trace all kinds of POS transactions.

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

LS Nav

  • Data Director leaves room for improvement as it can be very tricky while dealing with a large number of master data records. Sometimes it doesn't write delete actions to POS.
  • Furniture retail is another area where improvement is required to handle deliveries.
  • Newer versions don't support data replicator which was the most reliable data tool with earlier LS Retail versions. There should be a replacement for this tool.

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

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.

It scores higher on overall user experience and matured features set.

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.
Kristen Corp | TrustRadius Reviewer

LS Nav

  • Timely sales visibility
  • Optimum Inventory levels
