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!

I wouldn't suggest this ERP for small organizations, especially if there is no IT staff. While they do offer support packages, they can be costly as certain packages limit the number of times you can call in. Hiring an outside consulting firm to support is another route, however that could become costly as well. Medium to large businesses with savvy tech staff would be a good fit for this ERP.

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

Sage X3

  • The user interface has everything you would expect and in practical locations so you do not have to hunt and peck for the items you are looking for
  • Drill-down from GL to submodules works seamlessly
  • Easy import and export of data
  • The software is relatively easy to manage

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.

  • Complications in configuration. Had to use a third party vendor to help us customize the system so we could better use it within the organization. This added additional expense
  • Some error messages are in French. If you aren't French, or can't speak French, this makes it pretty hard to troubleshoot
  • If you want to customize reports, you need to know Crystal Reporting (at least for the version I am using)

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.

Sage X3

Unfortunately, the product was purchased before I began working at the organization. I am unsure what other products they may have reviewed before purchasing Sage ERP X3.

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.

Sage X3

  • Created efficiencies within the organization.
  • Centralized data input and retrieval.
  • Can be an expensive undertaking for an SMB.
