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!

SAP S/4HANA

SAP S/4 HANA is well suited to LARGE enterprise-scale businesses where the volume of transactional data is high. This is important because as I understand, this system shines when dealing with large data sets, especially when importing things through LMSW and the like. As for alternatives, there are none really as your company really should not be implementing old ERP at this point. If you want the bells and whistles of having a mobile-friendly front end, quick dev tools, and the new built-in applications, please jump into S/4HANA.

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.

SAP S/4HANA

  • SAP HANA uses analyses to predict the buyers’ behaviour and the success of products in real time.
  • SAP HANA links up with your existing systems and does the finances, sales, purchases, logistics, product development and manufacturing for you in order to tackle your specific challenges in the industry.
  • A unique approach to commerce enables you to work with just one accurate source of information and plan and make decisions in real time.

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.

  • Integration to Ariba has been very difficult for our organization. CIG as an integration tool is new and has a number of errors. This is not so much a S/4HANA issue, but to the customer, it appears as if S/4HANA is not a good product

It is easy to migrate between different screens within the S/4 system, which makes it easier to manage dependencies, tasks and resolve errors. Also the reporting in S/4 Hana is more reconcilable than any other software. The ease to check the accounts receivable and payable for orders has helped me a lot.

The support system of SAP is very good. Whenever we are logging any request, a quick support we are getting. Especially the support portal is very user friendly and easy to use. As of now I have not received any kind of complaint or negative feedback from my team regarding the support they are getting from SAP support team.

Implementation was as expected. We had minor issues with our Z* transactions, but nothing special. Some tables were extended and needed regeneration. Overall satisfactions is good.

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

SAP S/4HANA

Small scale companies where implementation of SAP S/4HANA is not in the budget can use alternate software like Tally, MS Excel to keep track of their business but then there are chances of human error and it will be difficult and lengthy process to identify the user's mistake.

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

SAP S/4HANA

  • Infrastructure cost increase. The fact of implementing HANA DB increases the cost of the infrastructure by a significant amount.
  • Reduced user time due to a more usable and friendly interface (Fiori). Users don't need to navigate several screens to find or complete information.
  • Also, due to HANA DB improved performance, users can get reports quickly so they improve their productivity by being able to respond more quickly to the business.
