ScaleFactor

I work with several businesses and have attempted to bring ScaleFactor into multiple. Thus far the business status/environment has been suitable for ScaleFactor only once, but I'll continue to look for more.ScaleFactor is great when a company has matured beyond the owner making all accounting and banking entries. As soon as multiple systems are needed, it's likely a decent time to call ScaleFactor. I'm confident my operations could run through ScaleFactor for a long time as the next step for us would be something akin to NetSuite or some other more rigid enterprise solution. Additionally, our business has a geographically displaced work force, typically working from home. Having access to all systems via the cloud has been great. No longer do we have to pass a specific computer back and forth for a physical computer software license. It's enabled maximum work flow convenience.

This would work well for the back side of accounting...meaning after the invoice was created. If you need software to create invoices, this may not be the software for you (or at least you would have to do additional research on its capability). Other than that, it takes care of the majority of our needs.

Cons

ScaleFactor

  • Seems to be a constant turnover in my team at ScaleFactor, which means a lot of explaining what our business does and needs again and again. And that means a lot of emails, disorganization and phone calls (Taking my time).
  • Chatbot doesn't seem to work well. Never answers the questions I'm in need of for a quick answer!

  • There is a lot of "building" when first starting up with the software.
  • Some of the data you cannot pull unless you have sequel knowledge, although capabilities are getting better.
  • There is not a good operating statement report option.

Unit4 Financials is definitely much more robust than Peachtree or other software. I've also used SAP in the past and this seems to have many more capabilities.

Return on Investment

ScaleFactor

  • Speed of back-office business activities has sped up significantly. Better decisions made faster.
  • Organizing and standardizing pesky aspects of running a business like employee expense tracking and accounts payable bill entry.

Unit4 Financials

  • Because of the lack of operating statement reports, we've had to spend additional funds to use another system.
  • It does show data in real time, so no waiting for batches to update overnight.
  • You can do a lot of customizing to meet your own needs.
