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.

Zoho Finance Plus

Zoho Finance Plus is best suited for invoice management. It allows the user to scan the expense reports and auto-populates most of the fields to generate the invoice. The security features of the software ensure integrity of the whole process and prevents anyone from tampering with the invoices. Another cool feature is that it allows you to fix your company logo on the invoice and triplication of the bill as required under the GST Act. The only scenario where I found Zoho Finance Plus less appropriate was while working with a slow internet connection. There were prolonged snags and it completely ruined my experience of using the software.

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.

Overall, Zoho Finance Plus is a great accounting solution. It provides an easy to navigate interface and sharp analytic insights. The dashboard summarizes the cash position of the business very well and reduces non-compliance by providing timely alerts. My experience with this software has largely been positive. My only request to Zoho, as a user, is to improve the customer care support. Overall, I recommend the use of Zoho Finance Plus for business use.

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!

Zoho Finance Plus accords maximum support to beginners, and even the existing clients. In case a challenge arise, the immediate intervention that the developer issues saves on losses or time. Also, the integration of Zoho Finance Plus with numerous zoho products makes the entire working environment friendly and easy. Lastly, Zoho Finance Plus applies standard accounting policies, making it effective and operational globally

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.

Zoho Finance Plus

I will not name the rival product as it might have an undue influence on a new customer. I chose Zoho Finance Plus because of the following reasons:1. The pricing is relatively lower as compared to the rival products in the market.2. Pandeminc-related lockdowns made the use of a remote accounting software an imperative.3. Introduction of GST in India increased the compliance burden.Zoho Finance Plus is a great product and certainly scores above its rivals on a number of features. However, I think one must exercise caution in selecting the right accounting software to meet business needs of the organization.
