Best Accounting Software for Fast Growing SMB
Commentaires : We have been using Accounting Seed for a bit over a year now and our whole teams loves it!
Super easy to use and easy to customize to meet your needs
Not the easiest to transition over to and it lacks good quality consulting partners.

Commentaires : Our accounts receivable and payable tasks are much easier since changing to Accounting Seed. Our reporting capabilities are much improved over our previous software.
This software has very robust capabilities. It's good for businesses that have complex operations. It works very seamlessly with Salesforce.
Their customer support could be better. I wish I had a dedicated point of contact when I have questions. I also wish I could pick up the phone and talk to a person instead of having to create a case and wait to get emailed back days later.
Powerful - Super Flexible - Very easy to build automation flows around.
Commentaires : Very happy with. The product just had a price increase, after years of no change, and after our multi-year contract expired. However, we have since found that the product is still priced enough below other finance/accounting packages on the SalesForce platform, and accounting seed is the still the best.
Customization capability, supported by excellent documentation, and able to user all of the native SalesForce platform capabilities, such as approval processes, automatic field updates, workflows, etc.
The uploading of budgets is too complex. Instead of uploading an Excel with GL entries as rows and periods as columns, the upload must be after the creation of a pivot table in Excel.

Commentaires : We've had issues on and off using the program since going live in January 2019, however, AccountingSeed Customer Support has helped us through all of those issues. They've even done some customization for us as a courtesy. I've been working on a custom template (with Conga) for months now and the fields I need on the form were not available to us. CSR with AccountingSeed helped me today with these custom fields; he added them as a courtesy and also sent me a video on how he did this. VERY helpful to have in the future.
My favorite feature is being able to Clone repeat transactions; vendor invoices and journal entries. The Bank Reconciliation is a breeze. Submitting a Ticket for assistance is very convenient. I get an email within a few hours with a solution.
My least favorite features are the Financial Reports and AccountingSeed-created Forms. The reports we run are very different than what AccountingSeed offers. We've found a way to make it work by exporting to Excel, updating fields, adding/deleting, etc. Another feature is the various forms that AccountingSeed created for us; Purchase Order, Packing List and Billing. When we first started using AccountingSeed we found out they didn't have Sales Orders (order confirmations). We had to purchase another App (Conga) who created the Sales Order form for us. I'm currently working on a new Purchase Order template with Conga. The issue I have with the Billing form is that is says Billing. A lot of our customers comment, asking for the Invoice number. It's just a terminology issue; billing vs invoice. We will be creating our own Invoice template with Conga as well.
Great API and ability to customize. Standard out of the box is functionality is average.
Commentaires : The software works and the API gives you the flexibility to do what you want for the most part. Normal retail businesses or consultant companies shouldn't have any issues integrating the software. For heavily customized users - know what you're getting into from an investment standpoint before moving forward.
The API has been instrumental in allowing us to make this accounting software work with all of our heavy salesforce customizations. We have a custom quoting tool, project management tool, and project profitability tracking tool that all work with Accounting Seed. The integration with SF has been a game changer for data reliability and work flow. Overall it's pretty easy to use once you know what you're doing.
For about a year they had no way to allow for multiple tax ID's with Avalara and the API wouldn't work for it either. The last release has fixed that and made the lives of our accounting team much better. Their online tutorials and instructions aren't the easiest - improved search would help finding things. For us, since we had so many customizations with SF already, it was quite expensive on top of the Accounting Seed cost to get it to work for our company.
Accounting Seed for Legal Services Nonprofit Org
I like that it's cloud based and can be accessed from anywhere.
The reporting features could be better, having the ability to customize reports with ease, not as "intuitive" as I had hoped, but gets the job done.
Great Customer Service
Salesforce automation is great and they respond quickly to any issues.
As anything in the Salesforce universe, it feels like we are not taking advantage of all the capabilities of the software.
Great software with tons of appications
Commentaires : Overall we have had mostly positive experiences, but when we have issues they are usually relatively large and hard to deal with.
I like how everything is kept in the system and we are able to easily find anything we need with a quick search. We are able to throw together invoices and process them very quickly.
The price is a bit high and the customer services takes awhile to get back to you.
Commentaires : Out of all previous support teams I've had experience with Accounting Seed client support is far above the rest. Their support agents always give critical and detailed information to help one track down issues and resolve them. It's been a pleasure engaging with them an I appreciate the dedication of their team!
The software does what it is supposed to do and is easy to configure.
There are features that Accounting Seed needs to implement to help small businesses save time when it comes to warehouse inventory tracking. The current process for shipping serialized items needs to be redesigned to allow for quicker processing.
Everything you might need is set up for you.
I can't go behind the scenes to edit the code which makes it less customizable.

An Excellent Value Financial Solution
Commentaires : Overall, we have had good experiences. The package has a straightforward install (save once when we didn't have the correct release, and good to very good support. The Knowledge Base is helpful.
Having a financial solution on the Salesforce platform is a game-changer for development and implementation speed. Real-time financial information available at the Account, Opportunity, and Project record level increases the speed, accuracy, and relevance of critical business intelligence. This, in turn, translates into greater business agility while exponentially increasing confidence in the processing and assessment of business threats and opportunities.
Recently the platform and license costing has been a bit of a moving target. I have evangelized for this product and assisted several of our clients with AS implementations, and more than once we have found out significant cost impacts after the initial purchase. The bank connections have also been challenging, as while the advertised "1400" banks might sound like a lot, we have discovered the hard way that having a bank name on the list does not guarantee a connection, as each bank can have several connectors, and not all are compatible with Accounting Seed.
Accounting Seed as a Manufacturer and Wholesaler
Commentaires : It's been both good and bad, but more good than bad.
Integrated with our business processes easily; Manufacturing setup in Accounting Seed was fairly easy as Manufactured Goods come as a core component of the Product features. Bank Connect makes it easy for A/P and A/R to reconcile and manage their divisions. In general, the fact that we can do Accounting, Sales, and Manufacturing on a single platform has saved us countless $$$ and time.
Lots of unit test failures in the Apex. Opening/Closing Accounting Periods takes forever, even with minimal transactions, due to poorly optimized code.
Cloud-based law firm
Commentaires : Our experience has been excellent. Accounting Seed helped develop an integration with our practice management software years ago. They have continually improved the application every year.
The ability to bring our accounting to the salesforce platform was huge. This allowed us to integrate with our practice management software.
Some processes take too many steps (clicks) but this is probably a function of Salesforce.
Complete and Comprehensive General Ledger and Financial Reporting
Commentaires : The system overall is a fabulous product that goes far beyond the functionality of other accounting solutions, such as: Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains, Sage, Quickbooks, Servman, Aljex, and Epicor.
Accounting Seed is intuitive, has internal controls, an audit trail, produces all financial statements including a Statement of Cash Flows, a full general ledger, has exemplary customer support, and combined with Salesforce applications, provides for complete and comprehensive financial reporting
There are some minor issues with the application, but nothing that prevented me from using it. For example, I would like to see the company name and logo on the financial statements.
Introduced to AS 10 Months Ago and already feel like a pro using it
Commentaires : We work with smaller clients often in the Manufacturing world. It was very easy for me to come up to speed and be able to train and assist our clients.
I had never heard of Accounting Seed until October 2021. I was also new to Salesforece at that time. Accounting Seed integrates so well with Salesforce that I didn't even realize I was using 2 different platforms at first. Additionally it's highly customizeable but even works well when it's fresh "out of the box". I've even worked with ERP's that use Salesforce and have their own Accounting tools and Accounting Seed is easily integrated with the ERP.
The biggest thing our client's have confusion on is the Bank Direct Connect and Bank Reconciliation process. BDC is there to help make reconciliations easier, however, many believe that they must be able to match up all BDC records in order for reconciliations to work.
Straightforward, simple to use and great support what's not to like?
Commentaires : The support desk is amazing, I want to name-drop [SENSITIVE CONTENT], he's brilliant. Helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and human! The product is very straightforward, easy to implement and simple to support.
I find that this product sits so well with in Salesforce which makes life easier and ensures our business has a 360-degree view of the business in one place and the information is up to date to the millisecond.
Documentation for releases/functionality, I sometimes I feel that the documentation has a lot of words that don't say very much or don't actually say anything.
Worth the time to get it right
Commentaires : It's been a learning curve but the improvements have kept up with our needs and we are able to utilize more features as they become more user friendly.
The reports feature is highly customizable and flexible to create the data report exactly as you need it.
The search feature in Lighting is cumbersome; selection check boxes are way too tiny; spreading out data rows across the whole page make reading reports difficult, and when screen is shrunk the data cuts off.
Accounting Seed for Salesforce
Commentaires : Good overall experience, allowed us to run our entire org inside of Salesforce. Helpful support.
Completely integrated Salesforce accounting software including quote to invoice, inventory, sales orders, gl, etc. Robust native Salesforce solution.
Can be excessive button clicks at times for simple tasks. Requires a fair bit of optimization and process creation to increase efficiency.
Good Product with good customer service
Commentaires : It's been a good product for the 5+ years we have been using it.
We like the integration with Sales Force CRM and the ability to house all our information in one spot.
Not easy to fix mistakes or issues that arise
Would definitely recommend
Easy to use, the fields are API name are appropriate to use,
There is time we can't connect to dev sandbox automatically, We have to manually create everything from scrach, if the sandbox is refreshed.Would like to see if everything pops up as in partial/Full sandbox does
Great for Salesforce users
It’s built on the Salesforce architecture and super easy to customize for your business. Out of the box it’s feature rich.
It’s built on Salesforce so you are stuck paying for the Salesforce license for every accounting employee.
Heart of the House
Commentaires : It's ok I wish the reporting was best and easier to work with
It's integration with SF accounts. Software is on the cloud.
Can't post cash over the invoice amount to an invoice, when the client overpays that invoice. Reports are not good.
Accounting Pros & Cons
Commentaires : Overall experience is nice because of ease of use and customer support
Ease of use for the customer and use for developers to make changes
Limited customisation for the developers to modify standard functionality
Great ERP for Small Business but very manual
Everything that you could need for an ERP is under one roof and lives in Salesforce.
Despite the automations that it provides and what you can customize, it's very manual inplaces.
Works well when set up correctly but when customized it gets confusing
Anytime there is an update it changes customizations with SF
