AccountMate

AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user.The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

Clearbooks

Larger companies, multi-currency. Clearbooks is in a competitive environment with Xero, SageOne, FreeAgent, Intuit etc., etc.

Pros

AccountMate

  • Ease of use
  • Ability to easily adapt the solution to fit the needs of the end user
  • Integration of data across different platforms
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

Clearbooks

  • SaaS, so accessible by anyone, anywhere in the world via a browser
  • Clear and straight forward navigation
  • Good choice of management reports
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AccountMate

  • Custom reports: The current system uses Crystal Reports, which is a bit cumbersome.
  • True cloud-based solution is missing
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

Clearbooks

  • Like any SaaS product, Clearbooks is continuously evolving and being improved
  • Some of the reports still need some work
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Alternatives Considered

AccountMate

We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

Clearbooks

Clearbooks was chosen 5 years ago as our accountant recommended it. There is an element of inertia in moving accounts packages.

Return on Investment

AccountMate

  • Allows us to quickly gain insight into the current and past performance of the company
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

Clearbooks

  • I am not sure that ROI is an appropriate measure for an accounts package. The cost is around £250/year, which is a tiny fraction of the cost of a bookkeeper/finance controller/finance director/CFO.
