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.

Unit4

This would work well for the back side of accounting...meaning after the invoice was created. If you need software to create invoices, this may not be the software for you (or at least you would have to do additional research on its capability). Other than that, it takes care of the majority of our needs.

Unit4

  • There is a lot of "building" when first starting up with the software.
  • Some of the data you cannot pull unless you have sequel knowledge, although capabilities are getting better.
  • There is not a good operating statement report option.

      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).

      Unit4

      Unit4 Financials is definitely much more robust than Peachtree or other software. I've also used SAP in the past and this seems to have many more capabilities.

      Return on Investment

      AccountMate

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

      Unit4

      • Because of the lack of operating statement reports, we've had to spend additional funds to use another system.
      • It does show data in real time, so no waiting for batches to update overnight.
      • You can do a lot of customizing to meet your own needs.
