Dext Prepare (with Receipt Bank)

For organizations that require in depth detail in their financials, meaning detailed records of every expense, Receipt Bank is a great option. Accounting firms that are preparing the books for their clients in a cloud atmosphere will most certainly appreciate the ease of use provided with Receipt Bank. But for organizations that are small in number of employees, and maybe they all have company credit cards and no expense reports, Receipt Bank isn't necessary. It's still a "nice to have" software, but not required because these types of employees won't be keeping copies of receipts anyway.

Zoho Books

The biggest pro is that everyone can easily use Zoho Books. Secondly I would say Zoho Books is the world's best accounting software which is very helpful by helping me in managing money flowing in or flowing outside of our organization. It has played a key role in making our decision making power strong.

Pros

Dext Prepare (with Receipt Bank)

  • Key metrics on the submissions by clients and any delays. This allows for early identification where client may be struggling to get the information submitted to Receipt Bank, holding up the bookkeeping processing and ultimately delays in delivery of information to the clients.
  • Identifying unprocessed receipts sitting in the clients Receipt Bank file.. This assists in managing internal workflow and aiding team members who may find they need assistance in completing key tasks.
  • Identifying which clients are using Receipt Bank effectively and which clients need assistance. This can provide the opportunity to discuss with all clients what works well for them and what needs improvement by sharing some of the wins from other clients.
  • Providing managers the ability to review with ease the progress of Receipt Bank processing by client and by bookkeeper. This allows them to identify issues literally before they occur.

Zoho Books

  • Zoho Books invoicing and receipting features are second to none. We find it easy to quickly invoice clients and add items to their bills and also for our own receipting internally.
  • The accounting features are great for our accounting team to be able to see where we are financially and how the business is doing.
  • The ability to add contacts and run a mini CRM channel with clients within Zoho is invaluable. Since we use this in conjunction with our other CRM channels, it helps to have a centralized place to follow up and see through a sales funnel.
  • Zoho Books allows us to take payments from clients around the globe a feature we didn't have when we used another accounting system.
  • The pricing for Zoho Books is fairly reasonable for an SME organization which is a great for us as it pays itself back many times over every month.

Cons

Dext Prepare (with Receipt Bank)

  • The system to automatically pull invoices in from various online services is temperamental
  • Almost too many features for a micro business like ours

Zoho Books

  • When converting to Zoho Books from another accounting software, this seemed a bit difficult but this process is never easy.
  • There are certain restrictions within modules (estimates/sales orders/invoices/payments) that make it difficult to edit transactions. In many ways this is good, but different from what we have experienced with other accounting software solutions.

It is very easy to use although some of the interface is a bit busy and there are a lot of features that I don't use or are not sure how/if I would use.

Some features lack of depth in its functionalities as they give the impression that they are incomplete or half-way developed, so it is necessary to optimize some features already present in the software so that it can provide maximum performance and provide a real value to the software. It should be noted that there is a steep in the learning curve when using Zoho Books especially if you are a user who comes from using another accounting software, so you will have to get used to its workflow and operation.

The people are great. They follow the party line when working with us. There is clearly no intent to provide integration to the employee expenseThere is no intent to make the bank reconciliations system work in a manner consistent with US Accounting principles. There is no intent make the payroll system one that can easily cut a paycheck. Which brings up the fact that adjusting the printing on a check is very laborious and you only get close. You cannot get perfect

Alternatives Considered

Dext Prepare (with Receipt Bank)

Receipt Bank is superior to Wave in terms of its accuracy of reporting and allocating expenses. Even though there is a fee for Receipt Bank and Wave is free, the monthly fee for Receipt Bank is well worth the money, given the benefits

Zoho Books

We had a lot of problems with Exact Online, support-wise and price-wise. So Zoho Books wins on every point there. While Exact offers way more options, it tends to be really slow... and complex. Again Zoho Books wins. If you want an easy-to-use tool and not pay a lot of money, or if you are a small administration office with a few clients, this tool will be perfect for you.

Return on Investment

Dext Prepare (with Receipt Bank)

  • Saves hours per month preparing for BAS.
  • While it doesn't equate to a direct ROI in terms of dollars and cents the time it gives me back as a small business owner is time I get to spend with my family instead of the computer.
  • Nothing negative has been identified.

Zoho Books

  • Integration: Zoho Books offers out of the box integrations to extend the functionality and connect with the applications you love like MailChimp, Microsoft Outlook, PandaDoc, and Quickbooks, etc.
  • Flexibility makes Zoho Books great!
  • Since I can use forecast reports, I can create customizable sales forecast data from the dashboard to accurately measure revenue forecasts and establish sales quotas.
