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!

ORION Enterprise

Orion is a great tool for monitoring your devices and network. It is extremely reliable and provides power information and metrics regarding availability. It also has a nice alerting engine that can be set up based on the customer's needs. Overall the tool is powerful and very flexible when configured correctly.

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.

ORION Enterprise

  • Hardware monitoring is the main reason we bought the product, and we use it to monitor over 4,000 servers.
  • It also great for network monitoring, although we use other products for this function also. This is mostly because we are a big, siloed organization and is less to do with any issues with the functionality provided.
  • Application monitoring is also a capability of Orion. We have experimented with its function, but we have not rolled it out full-scale.

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.

ORION Enterprise

  • You still need other tools, so it is not a true enterprise solution. We still use products like Splunk for detailed log info and ThousandEyes to see when/where users are logging into our apps. There are also other products in use like ExtraHop and Dynatrace, but I believe that is more a function of my organization and less to do with product capabilities.
  • Sales methodology is very different because they don't travel and have a rep out in front of you. They do everything remotely, so if you are a big company this may take some getting used to.
  • The licensing/contracting model is unique. Everything is recurring on a set of data every year. They don't do MSA or SOW, just agree to the EULA and pay for the product. Again, I think this is different than what most large companies are used to.

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

ORION Enterprise

We use Orion for a very specific use case and do not leverage all the available functions of the tools. I do think the product is very capable and the different modules are very powerful. We are a big company and we already had several systems in place that provide the same functions. We use Orion specifically for monitoring our devices and network.

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.

ORION Enterprise

  • We have gained tremendous value from Orion enterprises device data and monitoring. It allows us to see what devices in our network are having problems or need attention.
  • The alerting engine in Orion is very powerful and can be configured to meet the needs of the customer.
  • Networking mapping and monitoring is also very powerful and provides real-time information about network up and downtime.
