I would definitely recommend using Basware Purchase to Pay in your organization, it handles high amounts of invoices efficiently and you can perform your work with ease. I am acting as a Basware superuser in my team so I know this software thoroughly and it rarely gives any issues, even errors are described in a clear way so the user knows what needs to be resolved/what is missing.

I think overall the product is fantastic, I don't have any negative feedback. The product is easy to learn, use, and navigate. It's accessible and very user friendly. The interface is not crowded, or intimidating. I enjoy the customization of my homepage and making it easy to add favorites/most often used tabs to my start-up page

Pros
Basware
  • It's easy to process invoices in a very short amount of time due to the fact that you can save your frequently used fields as favorites
  • The system is extremely easy to use as there are only a few steps required for complete processing of invoices
  • The ability to create and save templates of commonly used coding makes coding of invoices is fast and easy
  • Often times no interaction is even needed for invoice processing as received items and POs will match up on the back end with no intervention

  • Sage Intacct filters lists for easy access.
  • The drill down feature is phenomenal; I previously exported data to Excel and summarized using pivot tables and with the reporting capability and flexibility at my fingertips, I have to power to enable other users to drilldown and lookup status of payment requests and such independently.

Cons
Basware
  • Once you cancel the document in "cancellation queue" it cannot be restored or viewed.
  • Sometimes but relatively rarely the program opens slowly.
  • In rare instances the program freezes and needs to be restarted.

  • Being able to restrict the use of general ledger accounts to specific entities. We have some GLs that are only used by one of our 40 entities, and would be great to hide them from everyone else, so they do not get used by mistake
  • I would like to be able to reclassify credit card transactions after payment is recorded like you can do with accounts payable
  • After we implemented, we discovered some duplicate GL names and would have liked to be able to combine those and the host into the one gl we ended up using.

We will continue using product and continue renewing as it is widely used product and it has been well adapted by users in our organization. The product is expensive but we will use it. Hopefully the product bugs will be fixed in future and they will provide more HA architecture feather for Basware.

The ease of use as a seasoned user is wonderful; however, new users struggle to adapt to the program efficiently. Better training videos--all in one location--would be beneficial. The use of a "sandbox" environment is a great tool for new employees or for the fiscal department to test certain journal entries or other transactions to verify accuracy of data.

There has only been one occurrence where Sage Intacct was not available to me, however I had already been working a number of hours trying to get a project completed. It honestly allowed me to step back and take a much needed break.

As fas as integration is concerned I don't feel this slows Sage Intacct down at all. However, sometimes I do feel it takes some larger reports more time to load due to all the detail. As well as, I "move very fast" in my motions so sometimes I double click on fuctions too quickly and the system seems to think that I have a duplicate request.

Only a few times have we had to reach out to support, and every time we did, we received a relatively quick response and a solution was found fairly quickly. Only once was there an issue that took longer than a week to resolve, but it still did eventually get solved.

I have taken in person training classes at several of the annual Sage Intacct user conferences. It is very interactive and the trainers are very easy to follow and understand. They are great at getting everyone in the class involved. They also make sure everyone has learned to task before moving to a new one.

The free training is very minimal. For what we pay for the service, I would like more training. We end up training new users in-house because the provided free training is not nearly comprehensive enough. That being said, the training provided, for the material covered, was adequate and relevant for the given topics.

I would not use a thrid party administrator to implement your system, especially if you are going to be modifying the system at all. Use Intacct implementors as they will be able to better support you on any issues that come up after you go live.

Basware was not my selection as I was not with the company at the time. It was easy to learn and we have maintained a good working relationship with Basware. It is a very good way to process the workflow of invoices from start to finish

I would say that there have been very few issues, glitches, or times that Sage is difficult to use, unlike the previous systems I have used. I would say it is more reliable.

  • We were able to speed up our reporting by being able to create some reports within Sage Intacct instead of Excel
  • We were able to eliminate a lot of paper by integrating Expensify and getting rid of paper employee reports
  • Being able to review documents within the related journal entry saves time tracking documents to where they've been filed
