Certinia
For accounting systems, users and/or evaluators often want to see some type of matrix or "heads up" comparisons of specific features and functionality of a system in key areas such as: 1) General Ledger 2) Order to Cash cycle 3) Purchase to Pay cycle 4) Cash management 5) Inventory and/or Cost Accounting (Projects/Jobs, etc) 6) Revenue Recognition 7) Fixed Assets management 8) Budgets 9) Tax 10) Reports and Analysis It would be great if this kind of matrix existed to be filled in by reviewers so that others could benefit from their perspectives about the applications and how they address or handle the specific features/functionality. With respect to FinancialForce, the company has found that nearly all the key features it needed were available from the application.

I think the integration side of Infor SunSystems is really good where by it works well with our other business systems. It is easy to pick up for new staff members. We have not had to hold full blown training courses for unfamiliar users, they were able to use existing documentation and guides. The graphical interface is a drawback as it feels like you are using an old system.

  • Integration options are very good. We are able to import data in a number of ways and extract data as well. The use of their built in API for data validation, extraction and entry is working very well for us.

Cons
Certinia
  • Since SalesForce was not made with accounting in mind, building FinancialForce as a module on top of SalesForce gives problems because the overarching architect of SalesForce cannot facilitate all the accounting requirements.
  • The FinancialForce integration team was not very good, and did not help us set up our FinancialForce very well. Their customer support is also lacking and takes a long time to respond and troubleshoot our problems.
  • FinancialForce doesn't actually build financial statement reports. We were only able to run a trial balance, and we had to build the statements ourselves in Excel.

Infor
  • Although easy to use, Infor SunSystems has a very classical look which comes across outdated
  • Reporting feature is Infor SunSystems is not the best as it is not easy to create reports and the built in reports are limited in the filter options available
  • The Audit function needs configuring and is not ready out of the box so when you come to requiring audit data you can only retrieve after set up

The company has now converted its legacy, "home grown" operations system and built it on the force.com platform, and the integration between it and FinancialForce is deeply entrenched. No other application would be able to replicate this functionality, and the company will be able to scale and leverage the force.com platform as it grows.

Usability
Certinia
Change management is always an issue, but the evidence of the application's usability is that both long-time employees (used to the legacy systems for many years) and newer employees have been able to learn the system and improve their business processes.

Reliability and Availability
Certinia
Unless the internet is completely unavailable - which has not happened yet - the application is always accessible. Since FinancialForce is built on the force.com platform, it's uptime is tied to Salesforce security and system performance standards

Support Rating
Certinia
The response time for FinancialForce is exemplary. Immediate acknowledgement of the support request by automatically logging a case/ticket on the provider side, then less than 24-hour follow up by a support team member with specific questions, information or resolution for the issue.

Online Training
Certinia
Through its Xtra login website available to its customers, FinancialForce offers a complete set of online, video tutorials, training and documentation. Each tutorial is "bite-sized", meaning it imparts instructional, step-by-step information in 2-3 minute narrated videos. For a particular cycle or process, like invoices to payments for example, each tutorial builds on the last so that the user can get a complete picture of the steps and process in less than 10 minutes.

Implementation Rating
Certinia
The company decided to run parallel for three months in order to soften the impact of the change from the legacy "system" - which users had been interfacing with for over a decade - to FinancialForce. While not recommended, this did provide time for the in-house "super user" team of 2 people to become completely familiar with the application, and thus provide hands-on training and be a resource for the users who would be processing the daily accounting transactions.

FinancialForce Subscription & Usage Billing has more features, more useability, and manages higher numbers of customers. The systems I have used in the past are easier to navigate but couldn't handle this number of customers.

Return on Investment
Certinia
  • Beneficial to easily be able to track impact of fluctuating currencies.
  • Integration with Salesforce.com reduced/elimintated manual entry which saves various colleagues time.
  • Increased visibility over the entire sales cycle because of the integration between Salesforce.com & FinancialForce Accounting.

  • With the cost of living we had to reign in the budget this year. As it's easy to export data out of Infor SunSystems we were able to report on spend and gain greater control of outgoings
  • One of our objectives is to build new homes for people. Infor SunSystems allowed us to budget and forecast all the costs to determine what we could achieve
  • With Infor SunSystems being a popular accounting software we are able to recruit previous Infor SunSystems users therefore not having to spend on training staff which is very costly.
