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.

Foundation Software

We have been able to use Foundation Software in almost every construction accounting situation. You can tell it was designed for the intricacies of construction accounting. While we have not explored it lately, the project management module was not ideal. Foundation Software knows accounting and is strong in that field. I think they would be best suited to stay within the accounting realm and focus their resources on that arena.

Foundation Software makes setup and data entry clean and straightforward. Even without prompts, a user would be able to navigate around the basic functions of the software. With a little training and the help manual they provide, a user can learn the system very easily. For those wanting to get deeper into things like queries and dashboards, they offer trainings and conferences that are helpful.

I have used Foundation Software support many times over the last ten years. I have never had an issue they were unable or unwilling to address. Even oddities are handled quickly and resolved efficiently. I have also had customization done and was very happy with the customer support they offered in developing a query and report that would met our unique need.

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).

Foundation Software

Personally,
I did not have a hand in deciding the software, but for our company is has not
led to increased productivity or made things easier. It has been more difficult
for payroll to be inputted correctly and the payroll reports for certified
payroll often come out incorrect and we need to manually figure out how to correct
the issues and get them in correctly

Return on Investment

AccountMate

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

Foundation Software

  • Double input for payroll.
  • Certified payroll reports lacking.
  • Takes more time.
