    Pros
    It is the ability to leverage the strength of the Salesforce platform that makes the experience strong and the HIG Capital investment and Partner environment that makes the future look stronger.
    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 integration with SF and our TMS is great, its fantastic to have all order information linked to the accounting objects. Reporting is great as well, that is mostly a SF feature.
    Cons
    There are a few in the system but I suspect there could be more that could print directly from the system in a more presentable format.
    Anytime something comes up I know I have to figure it out myself or waste time trying to correspond with someone.
    The inability to send ACH payments out of the box was a huge piece for us.

    Best Accounting Software for Fast Growing SMB

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    We have been using Accounting Seed for a bit over a year now and our whole teams loves it!

    Pros

    Super easy to use and easy to customize to meet your needs

    Cons

    Not the easiest to transition over to and it lacks good quality consulting partners.

    Great Product

    Reviewed 17 days ago

    overall Accounting Seed has been a great experience. I appreciate the architecture of their program as it is built a a very secure way that is intuitive.

    Pros

    I appreciate the free Documentation on explaining different accounting concepts. I also appreciated the original CEO's music video to help promote. We switched to Accounting Seed after having a terrible time trying to setup Sage and they made the process easy and efficient. Then we moved another company of ours to Accounting Seed which uses the ERP features which have worked well.

    Cons

    I don't like the process to login to the support portal and put in support tickets. You used to be able to put tickets in via email. But, they took that away. Now you have to login to the support portal, which very annoyingly does not allow you to hit enter to login. and then create a ticket. You receive email updates on tickets, but you can't reply from the email. You have to log back into the support portal for each reply. Seems to be a cheap way to reduce support tickets.

    Great Support

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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...

    Great software

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Our accounts receivable and payable tasks are much easier since changing to Accounting Seed. Our reporting capabilities are much improved over our previous software.

    Pros

    This software has very robust capabilities. It's good for businesses that have complex operations. It works very seamlessly with Salesforce.

    Cons

    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.

    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

    Reviewed 24 days ago

    Using this within Salesforce reaps huge reward. We can work together with our team spread far and wide!

    Pros

    The Team is amazing and well versed, a pleasure to work with. Being in DF means access to everything from anywhere!

    Cons

    The rate of change is touted as a benefit, but in reality is a bug. When your team complains about each new version, you know you have a problem. Multiple releases per year disrupt our org. Opting out is received negatively, and the belief that an org our size can have our team Beta Testing new releases in our sandbox several times a year indicated an unfamiliarity with our work loads. I hope they can stabilize the product and get to a maximum of a large yearly release, because the current "Improvements" are quite disruptive. That being said, I hope they prosper, because the software offers great promise, and a real shot at being the defacto standard for on system accounting in a Salesforce environment.
