We purchased Accounting Seed to replace an out of date Great Plains program. We are a performing arts, non profit theater. We wanted a Salesforce based product as we currently use Patron Manager as our ticketing, donation and education sales program, and we specifically wanted a program that would allow our staff to move seamlessly between the multiple sides of our business.
  • When making a deposit for a donation we can tag the account record.
  • Anyone can recognize donors that are also vendors.
  • Extracting general ledger detail is accurate and easy - allowing us to ensure the GL matches revenue detail from donations, box office and education.
  • Budgeting is actually pretty nimble now that I am using it more.
  • Custom reporting seems cumbersome, but it could just be that we need better instructions, more examples, maybe some more canned reports. My company needs the ability to compare multiple years, and more than one budget in a report - we start with an approved board budget and then we reproject each quarter.
  • Non profits need to print financials by restriction level - this has also been very awkward - all the data is there but I have to piece it together in an excel spreadsheet every time I want it.
  • In general, the materials needed for non profits is not as accessible as it could be.
The ability to see detail in the data is second to none. The ability to tie into the same data base as other salesforce products is huge. I do believe you need an on site expert. I have found my staff hesitant to "explore" the world outside of their routine. There are certain functions - like accounts payable - that are very similar no matter what program you buy, but it would be helpful if Accounting Seed put together some "Best Practices Procedures" for the A/P person to review and teach themselves. As the manager, it should not be up to me to have to retrain every person that steps into the position from scratch. How much nicer it would be to have something in the knowledge base or in the Accounting Home page that would direct new hires!

We were current users of Salesforce and were not happy with our existing separate accounting program. I felt Accounting Seed was the perfect fit and it has proven to be just that. We have it set up so only accounting staff have access to the program, but the fact that information flows out to Salesforce for our Sales staff to see and work from is priceless. Not to mention the flexibility and array of reporting features. We now are able to have reports auto generate to show profit/loss, reconciliations, etc.
  • Ability to create custom reports on the fly.
  • Sharing/flowing information across Salesforce project pages.
  • My favorite, saving tons of time by having all information in one location, not having to stop and compare Salesforce reports to a separate accounting program reports.
  • Sometimes when creating a receipt it can't seem to find the company I am searching for in the drop-down, I have to go out to the company and enter from there.
  • Some of the accounting reports seem to be limited, though at times this may just be the user! Still learning as I go! But there have been some reports that state I would need to add another partner app to do, which would mean more cost.
Our main reason for switching to Accounting Seed was the idea of having all of our information in one platform. This allows constant real-time information on where we are at with cash flow, project costing, a/r, a/p, loss/gain on jobs, etc. When we set up a job in Salesforce we immediately set up a reconciliation linked to it, so we do billing to a customer on that job, or enter a payable against it. It shows in real-time on the job's page. I honestly can't think of a scenario where it would not be appropriate.

Perfect Accounting Software for Salesforce Fans

We use Accounting Seed as our accounting software, used by our CFO and his team.
  • Reports.
  • Customization.
  • Customer service.
  • A bit pricey, especially for start-ups.
If you live and breathe in Salesforce, this is for you. It's so great to not have to do double data entry, or even rely on an "integration". Being able to look up an account in Salesforce and see the related lists of all accounting info for that account is such a pleasure.

No regret going with Accounting Seed

Accounting Seed is used as our basic accounting software including project financials.
  • Accounting Seed is fully embedded in Salesforce so reporting in Salesforce is the same in Accounting Seed.
  • Accounting Seed objects (files) can easily be customized with additional fields to meet your needs.
  • Projects in Accounting Seed can be linked to other objects in Salesforce.
  • Most accounting systems have a number of canned reports included with the system. Accounting Seed has a few limited canned reports. These have grown over the past three years.
  • Though using the Salesforce reporting feature makes reporting easy, you are limited by what the Salesforce reporting system can do.
  • Budgeting is connected to project tasks rather than general ledger accounts.
I was looking for an accounting system that worked well with our CRM, Salesforce. With Accounting Seed embedded in Salesforce, it was well suited for our needs. Employees are only required to learn the basics of one system and that applies across systems. This helps in initial and cross training.
