Acumatica

We work with clients from various fields and have not yet encountered cases where Acumatica is not suitable. It can be customized for any business. Some business-process a harder for customization but basically, everything is solvable.

BlackLine

BlackLine is well suited for an organization dealing with high volumes of data or with multiple divisions seeking for integrated reporting and more dynamic analysis and data tracking. It may not be as appropriate for smaller companies with manageable data requirements. Much of the functionality that BlackLine offers may be found as part of a company's existing software packages, though perhaps not with as much functionality or customizability.

Pros

Acumatica

  • Expense reporting - enabled by a smartphone, you can image receipts and create claims quickly
  • Chart of accounts - being able to drill down in an expense category to see the individual claims that make up the total is helpful
  • Reporting - I appreciate the ability to pull a standard report and export to Excel quickly and easily

  • Task Management is straightforward. Ownership, review, and approval are straightforward and pretty easy to configure and follow.
  • Account Reconciliation works similarly. Supporting documents can be attached to a given rec to ease the audit. If balances change after approved, the approval is peeled back.
  • Integration with our financial system works seamlessly. Configured to run every 4 hours each day, it's helpful to know even when balances change, BlackLine is up-to-date.

Cons

Acumatica

  • Email integration: Horribly clunky, requires users to share email password with Acumatica to allow use of outbound emails. Should be using a more secure method like access tokens.
  • Expense approval process: Once expense claims are approved, approvers (depending on role) can no longer see the approved/denied claims. Denial of claims requires a manual email/call to submitter instructing them to correct and resubmit the claim.
  • CRM: Allow for tracking of cases by the opportunity in addition to business accounts. This would allow for more accurate tracking of issues related to specific opportunities.

  • Workflow tracking capability in the Compliance module.
  • The worksheet that is a UDF in the Compliance module could have better functionality. It doesn't have all the capabilities of true Excel, so we don't currently use it. It would be great if we could copy information (including formulas and formatting) into the worksheet.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

This product is so user friendly. The support staff is so easy to work back & forth with on the blackline community site. The journal module is very easy to master & start using immediately. The account recon module is as well and very user friendly. I would recommend this product to anyone

I have not had to use support directly outside of Blackline U and the community (which is very effective!). I have been told by our main administrator who directed the implementation that he is extremely pleased with the support provided - especially as compared to other companies we have support contracts with.

Change is something you deal with on any new implementation. Users were already experienced with SAP Gen template. This was a new way of doing things so education of everyone was critical to success. Selling folks on this was an easier way to do their job was the key to success

Alternatives Considered

Acumatica

Acumatica trumps over QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions in many ways. First, Acumatica being in the cloud has given us agility in accessing the platform anywhere and anytime. Second, the dashboard creation feature of Acumatica has given us the ability to customize each dashboard of each of our employees. Lastly, the CRM solution of Acumatica enables us to track, manage, and monitor our sales team.
Parker Ong | TrustRadius Reviewer

BlackLine

BlackLine showed a commitment to continuous innovation and improvement of their product. We are on this accounting transformation journey for the long-haul and we need a business partner that is committed to finding solutions to our problems - Including our problems today and our problems next year. BlackLine has a deep support team and an extensive online training resource that assists with onboarding.

Return on Investment

Acumatica

  • Acumatica has saved us so much time, previously having multiple disparate systems for handling our many processes. Now we have one fully integrated system saving us time and money.
Nicole Ronchetti | TrustRadius Reviewer

BlackLine

  • Matching for bank recs had the biggest impact, as it provided time savings of over 500 hours a month for a total of 30 accountants.
  • It improved our internal controls by having all accounts tracked, properly approved, all supporting documents attached, which helped to get them reconciled timely.
