Accounting Seed

Accounting Seed is a great solution for businesses looking for reliable accounting software. It offers all the features needed and works as expected. In addition, it is not as pricey as many competitors and therefore a great choice. I would recommend it for both startups and established businesses.

Spreadsheet Server

Spreadsheet Server is a set it and forget it type of thing. However, if you are wanting to change up the data you get on a regular basis, this may not be the product for you.

Pros

Accounting Seed

  • Fully integrated into SalesForce so financial information is linked to all aspects of the organization.
  • Customer service is excellent and with timely and helpful solutions.
  • Upgrades are announced well ahead of pushing them out. Accounting Seed handles all the effort. When upgraded, you are assured there are no problems with it continuing to work with your other applications in SalesForce
  • Being built on the Force.com platform, many applications are available to add to the Accounting Seed application to expand its abilities.
  • Customization is simple and integrates across all aspects of SalesForce.

Spreadsheet Server

  • It's easy to use and learn how to create new spreadsheets.
  • Spreadsheet Server makes it easy to create custom financial statements for your company. It is a great tool to use with Vista by Viewpoint.
  • We can create custom graphs and KPI's in Spreadsheet Server.

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.
Gayle Ulrich | TrustRadius Reviewer

Spreadsheet Server

  • The only issue that we came across, is that not all of our companies have the same financial structure as each other. So the GLs we use for one report, would not necessarily work for all the other companies. We did not want to create separate reports for each company either. We did find a workaround in that we created a lookup tab with GLs to use for each category for each company, then used v-lookup to pull those GLs over. This workaround worked great, but it would have been nice to have something built in to cover this.

Since Spreadsheet Server implementation in my organization is most successful and fulfills our financial and ERP reporting requirements, I recommend to all other individuals and organizations to select this software for centralized and quick base financial reporting without any errors. I rate this app 9 out of 10 and recommend all to definitely use it.

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!

Overall it's great support from Spreadsheet Server in all aspects of the financial reporting and statistical analysis. We centralized our all financial and GL data in a single report with the help of Spreadsheet Server support. Now anyone can access and update live data without any financial error.

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.

Spreadsheet Server

Vista did not offer reporting that met our needs. We were not able to easily customize the standard reports to fit our company needs. We are able to create different reports depending on management's needs and level. It is easy to create reports for auditors as well in Spreadsheet Server.
