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!

Oracle Cloud EPM

It is well suited in a geographically distributed environment where you have various key participants in multiple time zones providing input and necessary explanations on performance and measured successIt is less appropriate where you have a single office environment with a single finance department working together.It is also less suited when the GL is NOT an Oracle product and the interface between the GL and the reporting software needs to be implemented with utmost care and handling.

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

Oracle Cloud EPM

  • Account Reconciliation CLoud Services provides tight integration with Oracle R12 and 11i . Provides drillback capability. It is flexible and provides rich functionality to users.
  • We have implemented ARCS on cloud and migrated planning and budgeting from On premise to PBCS and EPBCS. Functionality is onpar with onpremise. Provides regular updates monthly
  • We don't need to upgrades every year and saved a lot on Hardware.
Raju Aenike | 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.

Oracle Cloud EPM

  • The limitation of constrained out of the box dimensions that requires ripping the initial implementation to add the new dimensions is a major drawback.
  • Smartview interface is cumbersome for many.
  • The only financial adapter is available for integration for other modules we have to go with file-based uploads which is cumbersome and not real-time.
  • It is very costly in terms of licensing unlike other Oracle products.

We have a pretty good userbase who are at the high level who gained value from this tool. Discontinuing this tool is prone to impact their day to day operations. Also the data in this tool cannot alter the source, which maintains the integrity of this tool. Smartview is a cool addition that gained lot of traction as well.

Support from our implementation partner is a 10/10, but support from Oracle is awful. Case in point: recently over a 2-day period, there were a series of intermittent outages. Oracle actually asked US for the outage time-stamps. I would have thought that, since we were paying them, they should probably be able to tell us!

I suggest doubling the time to implement from the initial quote you get from the Sales team. That's always been the case for me for multiple EPMs now. The out-of-the-box functionality of Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud is pretty robust so I appreciate that and it really helped us get the ball rolling quickly.

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

Oracle Cloud EPM

Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud fared very well against Adaptive, Anaplan, and Host Analytics. We ultimately decided on Oracle due to its reputation and strength of existing customers. We are happy with our decision.

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

Oracle Cloud EPM

  • Significantly reduced the amount of money we spent for the maintenance of in-house hardware.
  • We now need less employees to manage the configurations of Oracle EPM Cloud.
  • There have been many time savings as a whole to apply to more productive causes.
