Foundation Software

We have been able to use Foundation Software in almost every construction accounting situation. You can tell it was designed for the intricacies of construction accounting. While we have not explored it lately, the project management module was not ideal. Foundation Software knows accounting and is strong in that field. I think they would be best suited to stay within the accounting realm and focus their resources on that arena.

QBO Advanced is well suited to almost any mid-sized organization, probably up until the enterprise level where a more customizable solution might be appropriate. At a 1 mil budget, my organization is just scratching the surface of the features. Inventory management is not a strong suit, so organizations needing a robust inventory solution should be prepared to integrate a separate system or look elsewhere.

Pros

Foundation Software

  • Time saver.
  • Web-based.
  • Work from anywhere.
Erica Weiner | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • Invoicing: QuickBooks makes it easy to invoice customers, with recurring transactions, copying invoices to create new ones, and statements available instantly to let customers know where they stand.
  • Merged Banking: I've hooked up my bank accounts and credit card to QuickBooks and every day (or more often if you'd like), I can categorize and match transactions to make reconciling effortless.
  • Reports: I use reports often so help me with my B&O taxes for multiple states.

Cons

Foundation Software

  • Not truly cloud based
  • Remote access is tedious
  • "Customization" is limited
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • This is a very powerful program. Customer support must be top notch, and it is. Although I have talked to a few that seemed clueless--then I hang up and start over.
  • When I first started, 1 year ago, I created my own problems with no knowledge how to fix them. When calling customer support I just wanted them to take over and make everything right. I called almost daily. Agents were very patient and wanted to know if everything was corrected for fixed to may satisfaction.
  • There has to be easier access to online support, whether videos on youtube, or your own learning sessions. When a mistake is made, QuickBooks Online sometimes knows, and if a link was provided to a video or even a description, that would be great.

Foundation Software makes setup and data entry clean and straightforward. Even without prompts, a user would be able to navigate around the basic functions of the software. With a little training and the help manual they provide, a user can learn the system very easily. For those wanting to get deeper into things like queries and dashboards, they offer trainings and conferences that are helpful.

I have used Foundation Software support many times over the last ten years. I have never had an issue they were unable or unwilling to address. Even oddities are handled quickly and resolved efficiently. I have also had customization done and was very happy with the customer support they offered in developing a query and report that would met our unique need.

Alternatives Considered

Foundation Software

Personally,
I did not have a hand in deciding the software, but for our company is has not
led to increased productivity or made things easier. It has been more difficult
for payroll to be inputted correctly and the payroll reports for certified
payroll often come out incorrect and we need to manually figure out how to correct
the issues and get them in correctly
Erica Weiner | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

At this point, I'd say cost was a major factor in our decision. The features and connectivity of BQE to QuickBooks is really great, but it was more than we needed at this point. Training costs were very high for other similar products and we felt that a program shouldn't be cumbersome to use or it won't get used. So far, keeping up with data that we need to track in QuickBooks Online Advanced has been very manageable. We have a long way to go as we just started this year, but we are very happy with the features and progress made.

Return on Investment

Foundation Software

  • Double input for payroll.
  • Certified payroll reports lacking.
  • Takes more time.
Erica Weiner | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • I cannot provide hard numbers but it has been easier for us to collect from customers using credit cards.
  • It has been easier to integrate Salesforce into QuickBooks and automations have been smooth ever since. Less time to create invoice[s] since everything is automated, we only need to match the payment that comes to our account.
  • It is easier for us to record transactions from bank feeds, less time, more tasks that can be done.
