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.

Thomson Reuters

It is extremely suitable for the client since for us they are all US-based companies, even though the main headquarters of our business is in Mexico.

It is less appropriate in terms of usability than taxes, since it does not include adaptability to Mexican legislation, and its deployment through customizations and reports is extremely expensive.

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.

Thomson Reuters

  • Requires a time investment for the learning curve to fully utilize the benefits provided by CS Professional Suite.
  • Older looking UI and aesthetic.

      Usability

      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

      The platform is stable even though a version for MacOS is also missed.

      In general, the user management and administration process is intuitive and once the roles are defined it is simple and easy.

      However, the user experience has become out of date in relation to other web-based platforms currently available on the market.

      Accounting Seed

      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.

      • Not authorized to view the large scale picture of Thomson Reuters CS Suite on ROI, however, it has been a part of the business model for years with constant updates and is only getting more and more efficient as time goes on.
