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.

Catalyst

Catalyst works well, when it works and is very well suited for an ABA environment. But the app development process and the continual list of bug fixes that are never-ending makes this product very hard to recommend.

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

Catalyst

  • The GUI is easy to navigate on the iPad mini, which we use for charting.
  • The options are simple so there is very little room for mistakes.
  • Charting is easy and the setup allows for necessary fields that must be completed so charting stays uniform.

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

Catalyst

  • Technical support very rarely has solid fixes for Catalyst problems. Expect to walk through several hoops before being told it's a known issue.
  • The App development process does not weed out problems before deployment. The last round of updates for Catalyst has left several key features broken with no workarounds.
  • New features are being rolled out over the next several weeks/months leaving the staff frustrated that what worked yesterday has either changed or no longer works today.

Well.... when it works... it's good. When it doesn't it is very frustrating for our staff.

Very rarely has support had something insightful to share as a solution. Maybe that is because the system is so simplistic there are no settings to go wrong. Tech support conversations frequently go like this: What are the OS, Catalyst version, and device that you are using it on? Have you turned it off and back on again? Uhh...we will get back to you in a few days.

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).

Return on Investment

AccountMate

  • Allows us to quickly gain insight into the current and past performance of the company

  • Catalyst is better than pencil and paper data analysis. But the app can be very frustrating when it's not working the way it did last week.
  • The GUI is very simple. Sometimes too simple, like there is no way to go back in and edit SOAP note options.
  • New feature roll-outs are mandatory. I understand that no one would opt in to being the guinea pig, but it would be nice if you weren't the first user to try it.
  • The integration with billing software has streamlined the billing notes and saved us money over having two separate systems.
