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!

QuickBooks is great for companies who aren't fully trained on accounting or who are having problems with running their company's finances. A user needs very little training to know exactly how the software works, and the software tutorials are easy to find and very helpful. If there is a technical issue with the software it can take quite a bit of time for it to be resolved since the customer support for QuickBooks is usually slow and sometimes unresponsive.

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.

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • User access control: for reasons previously specified.
  • Automation: we're able to automate a few key workflows that help remind the staff to get things done on schedule.
  • On-demand training via the Priority Circle has proven invaluable. Staff can learn things on their own without straining IT (me) or reaching out for immediate assistance for issues.

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.

  • The UI is a bit clunky.
  • Sometimes it is hard to find specific transactions.
  • There are not a lot of bulk actions you can do.

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.

QuickBooks Online Advanced

Quickbooks Online and Zoho Books are the two solutions evaluated and we have both in place with different customers. For this specific customer, Cafe Nomad LLC, there was no choice as the parent company is using Quickbooks Online and their accounting staff had the experience and knowledge of it. For a very small business, Zoho Books is a less expensive solution. Quickbooks Online, however, is a more robust platform that will be more appreciated by accounting staff.

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.

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • It has made my book keeping so much easier, faster and clearer.
  • I like being able to invoice clients and they can pay online.
