Acumatica

Acumatica is great for tracking inventory. It has advanced capabilities in that area from what I've seen in other solutions. It is also great at tracking sales, but the caveat there is that It's probably not very well suited to ultra high retail volume. I think it would be well suited to a manufacturing company though.

QuickBooks Online

In the past we have used QuickBooks Online to schedule vendor payment and tracking between various properties. This was helpful to us because it not only ensured that many payments to many vendors across many dates were shipped in time, but the built-in reporting and tax prep features made filing so much easier when it came to be tax time.

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

QuickBooks Online

  • The user interface is clean and things are easy to find. This saves us time from having to look for things we need. If we can't find something, the Help and Search features are easy to use.
  • There is a bar graph at the top of my Customers page that shows a breakdown of overdue invoices, open invoices, and those that have been paid in the last 30 days. This is nice because I can see all this information quickly when I need it.
  • We can customize invoices as much as we need to and it is very user-friendly. We can email individual invoices or in bulk to save time. We can send invoice reminders and statements in a flash as well. All of these things help us get paid on time.

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.

  • Non-profit functionality for fundraising - I have to categorize accounts receivable as sales, and instead of being able to show collection of the sale and put the funds into our fundraising (income) account upon collection, I have to delete the sale and recategorize the expense as a fundraising
  • Reports could be more clearly labeled so I could find what I need better (e.g. being able to pull how much I paid a contractor by name).
  • Reconciliation of errors between bank and QuickBooks accounts - I make mistakes, I need to know there's an easy way to reset the account to zero our minor errors, but have not yet found the means to do so.

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.

It like the product 'right out of the box' and I trust Intuit will continually improve it over the years based on my experience with their desktop products. The large providers of Apps makes customizing the entire package relatively easy and seamless for a wide variety of business types.

It's Easy enough to learn the basic for a new user; though if you are required to go more in depth in recording assets or liability accounts it could get somewhat confusing for the every day user who doesn't know double-entry accounting. It's great for a business that just wants profit and loss information available at their fingertips.

There are tab issues. When I tab the field doesn't highlight and I have to backspace or delete what is in the field. Happens on the memo field and sometimes other fields. Very time consuming.

Not that overally impressed with the support when having issues with the app or desktop version. I lost my patience and at times just gave up and tried another process outside of QuickBooks. This is definitely something QuickBooks needs to work on improving as this could lose them customers in the long run. The benefits at the moment outweigh any of the frustrations I face.

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.

We decided to go with something familiar and more industry standard than alternative products. QuickBooks is simple to use, familiar with many. We received some great introductory pricing and will continue using it for the intermediate future. We wish there was more church specific functionality with the software, but we didn't want to go to other products which didn't have enough of a track record to trust.

Return on Investment

Acumatica

  • Objectives have been met
  • Good product for the price
  • Have dropped some modules bc of lack of use, i.e. fixed assets
No photo available

QuickBooks Online

  • QuickBooks Online ("QBO") has allowed us to increase our efficiency by at least 20% on clients where we handle their actual activity entry. The use of bank feeds has been the largest contributor to this because we can memorize transactions and what categorization needs to happen to them - virtually eliminating the need to key in information for those clients.
  • We are able to service more clients who are coming to us that want to use or already use a cloud based solution. Probably 2 of every 5 new clients already are using a cloud solution or want to use a cloud solution.
  • We are able to have access to the clients books immediately via the easy granting of a free "Accountant's Login." Clients love that they don't have to pay for this easy to use feature and that we can immediately start collaborating on new work without having to jump through hoops to gain access.
