We currently use SaaSOptics in Finance for sending out and tracking invoices for our SaaS clients. It has cut down on invoicing time tremendously, as we used to just manually create them in QB and track them using Excel. Some of the reports have been useful to product and sales teams as well.
- Invoice Automation
- Data Integrations
- Customer Service
- Options for Cash-based businesses. While it's not GAAP compliant and most users are accrual, many SaaS start ups are still small and operating on a cash basis.
- Commissions Module since SO already has all our data intergrations
- So many different features and data entry points that manual data entry errors are common
SaaSOptics is awesome for growing companies that want to automate their invoicing. I like that it is also aimed at subscription based sales structures rather than sales that occur at a single point in time (but has the ability to support both). SaaSOptics makes it super easy to keep track of subscriptions, renewals, co-terms, etc. The reporting is a great feature, but we are unable to use most of the reports as we are a cash-based accounting firm. SO caters to accrual accounting and GAAP compliant firms which makes sense as it is the most commonly accepted accounting basis here in the US, but many small SaaS start-ups are still operating on cash basis. We are one of those companies, so we are able to get a ton of use out of the invoicing side of things, a lot of the reports are useless for us. We also wish SO had a commission module since we already integrate our CRM and accounting softwares into it, but that is not a make it or break it for us. We love the time SO has saved us.
