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.

Intuit

QuickBooks Online Advanced is especially well suited for repetitive and longer tasks. It offers extended features compared to the Plus edition and in all these features it has to get a recommendation. Intuit knows its customers very well. They look at what the users do, and research for the next attractive feature sets to a large extent. So the question can only be answered in very special cases. They look for revenue so such issues as file size and stability can be expected to be on end an issue. There is a need to look for efficient workarounds and the customers are creative even for QuickBooks Online Advanced. So the more a company does accounting the more automation and repetitive action acceleration are used and needed. The more bank account they will manage the more advantageous the features. All these trends are limited. Then Intuit offers special services to work with even bigger systems of QuickBooks Online Advanced. The promise to turn complex processes into ones that are of clarity is really lived at Intuit. They protect their customers very well. They keep them in the privacy they intend to have. In my experience, the features are most helpful which is targeted customization toward growth.

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.

Intuit

  • Possibility to create a template for electronic signatures on checks
  • A new template that can allow the upload of general journal entries
  • A better way to review custom reports in lieu of scrolling down; is possible creating a new dashboard that will allow a dropdown.

      Usability

      Accounting Seed

      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.

      QuickBooks Desktop provides slightly more features and functionality, at the cost of disk space and the lack of cloud access. We chose the Online version of this software as the accounting and finance staff travel frequently and may access information remotely. QuickBooks provides significantly less features and functionality than Oracle NetSuite, but it comes at a fraction of the cost. As a smaller startup, NetSuite is not affordable for us at this time.
