Acumatica 5.0

As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

FreshBooks

I've recommended FreshBooks to other small business/agency owners who needed an easy way to invoice clients/customers (and to track everything). It's well-suited for nearly every small-medium sized business.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

  • Notification of late bills.
  • Quick invoicing.
  • Easy to use.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • It should have a free version which can be used for unlimited time not just 30 days. Although the company can limit the number of clients in them but the free version should always be free.
  • Need more integration features and should be able to integrate with other third party apps and payroll tools for enhancing the functionality. But I look forward to the next updates in FreshBooks.
  • Need an essential feature which is Time Tracking. Hope to get it soon!

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.

I will continue to use FreshBooks for various functions for my existing businesses and will likely use it as a starting point for future business ventures.

Well, it's pretty easy to get around and find what you're looking for. But certain things such as search and linking the company in the invoice would make it better

I haven't changed my mind since my first evaluation. Freshbooks is still meeting my needs, easy to use, etc.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
FreshBooks is more simple to implement and very fast to adapt into a small business operation that is looking for an international operation market. About this direction, we are not a large enough company to get SAP Business and have a complicated implementation operation. And above of all this, the permits granted are going to be demanding, but I'm involved with a small business and I have to be focus on my goals and my route to get there.
