What is Accounting Seed?

Accounting Seed is a complete accounting solution powered by the Salesforce Platform. The three core components of Accounting Seed are General Ledger, Project Accounting and Enterprise Resource Planning. The General Ledger features includes full accrual accounting with a a sub-account structure that allows for 4 separate segments. This component enables you to manage projects and project tasks within the same ledger. You can also generate financial reports and statements, reconcile bank accounts, and manage accounts payable and cash disbursements. You can further manage your cash flow by setting up recurring billing, creating PDF invoices and printing checks.

    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.

    Upgrading Accounting Software

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    By transitioning to Accounting Seed, we have been able to STOP operating in separate silos. Accounting Seed was able to marry our accounting and CRM systems perfectly. I would suggest working with a consultant(s) if you are making the switch, this helped us significantly in our transition.

    Pros

    As a sales organization, our business LIVES in Salesforce. As a result, we needed to make a change to our accounting software, and moving to a program that directly connected was critical. Enter: Aaccounting Seed. We finally have all of our systems talking, making the daily management of our business so much more efficient! Accounting Seed also allows for a lot of customization in setup and reporting--something we were never able to do with past accounting systems.

    Cons

    The only "con" we could call out if you are transitioning from another system to Accounting Seed--unless you are an expert at transitioning systems, you will want to engage with both Accounting Seed support and likely a consultant to help navigate your transition. This will save you time and money in the long run, and get you up and running faster!

    Accounting Seed

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Our overall experience was good. We transitioned from Quickbooks to Accounting Seed and it was a major transition, but the accounting seed team worked with us to make sure it went smoothly.

    Pros

    We chose accounting seed because it integrates with Salesforce and it was the only Accounting software available at the time that could fully integrate within our platform. We also have a high number of credit card transactions that we have to reconcile each month and liked the Bank Direct Connect functionality.

    Cons

    There were some limitations within the software, but if feel with each update, the Accounting Seed team works to offer updates and solutions to key issues.

    Accounting Seed Review

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Honestly a product without good support is no good to me. Anytime something comes up I know I have to figure it out myself or waste time trying to correspond with someone.

    Pros

    Ease of importing data through the data import wizard

    Cons

    Customer support is terrible. The guy that was answering my support tickets was not understanding me and would not call on the phone. I never once talked to him through anything but messages in the ticket portal. My ticket was not resolved for over a month.

    Vendor response

    Hi Nichol, Thank you for your feedback. We have contacted our Support Team regarding your feedback and we understand they have reached out to you in order to further discuss the ticket that you had submitted. We apologize for the inconvenience. In the future, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Success team by emailing customersucess@accountingseed.com.

    Completed the Integration of our Operations and Accounting

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    From day one right, to project completion, and now continuing to today, Accounting Seed was and is responsive, transparent, and overall a terrific implementation partner.

    Pros

    Fully integrated our accounting operations and reporting into our Salesforce platform. Fully replaced our prior Quickbooks accounting. Greatly reduced duplicate entries and speed of reporting.

    Cons

    Going through the process is time consuming because of the need to accommodate many customizations and unique processes we have. The software was not the cause, just the nature of the challenge.

    Pros

    I like that it's cloud based and can be accessed from anywhere.

    Cons

    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.
