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!

The software is really good for managing inputs and inventory as well as maintaining traceability. The "track picking moves" functionality lets you look into a specific lot or serial numbers and view all the product moves that occurred with that lot. However, some navigation is not intuitive. For example, if I click on an item in the BoM of an assembly, then click the back button to go back to the assembly, the site goes all the way back to the home screen. Some of these quirks mean that there is a learning curve for the software, but overall the tracking is very good.

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.
Pamela White | TrustRadius Reviewer

Odoo

  • Keeping a detailed record of all staff.
  • The application can be extended with modules.
  • Simple and intuitive.
  • Simple implementation
  • Relatively inexpensive.
Marouane Tohme | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Odoo

  • Community version is sometimes hard to maintain, needs some on-premise knowledge (IT) or having business with an Odoo partner that is sometimes expensive and unreliable.
  • Enterprise version is as expensive as other ERP in the market.
  • Reporting is horrible, not a lot of possibility to integrate seamlessly with a third party BI platform.
David MacDonald | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
David Jacoby | TrustRadius Reviewer

Odoo

While comparing Direkto with the Odoo, I'd say, only consideration of the UI is enough to see the vital advantage of the latter. Moreover, the specific functions are way [more] easily searchable through the Odoo than in Direkto.

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.
Gayle Ulrich | TrustRadius Reviewer

Odoo

  • Easy tracking of customers from prospects to sales.
  • Easy repeat orders customer follow-ups. All historical transactions and communications in one place.
