Accounting Seed overview

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.

Accounting Seed provides comprehensive project accounting, allowing you to measure project profitability against multiple budgets. Time cards with flexible variables allow you to manage project resources and associated expenses. Built-in expense reporting, scheduled revenue recognition and multiple billing assets depending on types of work, further allow you to manage project-associated costs and profits.

The Enterprise Resource Planning features included in Accounting Seed enable you to better manage inventory and sales orders. You can manage inventory levels and reserve inventory across a number of warehouses and locations. You can also covert opportunities to sales orders, creating custom, lite manufacturing or construction orders. You can also use the app to manage Customer Returns (RMAs), as well as installed assets.

Accounting Seed is also a multi-currency, multi-entity, and multi-national solution that works with companies across the globe from the U.K. to France to Ireland. The app makes it easy to manage multiple companies in one instance with tons of automation capability to give you the financial visibility and forecasting you need. Accounting Seed supports VAT and can be customized to multiple languages.

Accounting Seed Opinions

Pros
Our company has a small amount of employees who all work from home. Accounting Seed is great because it allows all of us to have immediate access to the data and information at all times, and is much more powerful and customizable than QBO. And of course the integration with Salesforce goes without saying -everything is in one place. It is so simple to close an Opportunity, and create a Purchase Order and everything that follows with just a few clicks of some buttons.

Cons
Some features are very complicated and tedious to set-up and implement, like customizing Financial Reports and setting up a Budget for example. The Knowledge Base is helpful to a point, but doesn't seem straight forward at times. Also, the cost per user is too high. We are paying for the convenience of having everything in the cloud rather than the value of the actual product.

Response from Accounting Seed

AS Support Service is perfect, I've never worked with a 3rd party application that has such a good service desk. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is great, personable and helps get the problem fixed! Absolute legend! Its this level of care that really helps make this the bee knees.

Pros
Simple, clean and clear. I'm not from a finance background and I find it easy (bar my cons) and logical to use.

Cons
Stock Transfer functionality, it only handles one item at a time. We have multiple locations with a pricebook of 9000+ not realistic and have had to custom develop. Stock Inventory History, is a manual process rather then automated or a bulk operation, again sought out other developments Projects/Manufacturing process, overly complicated.

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 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.

My experience using Accounting seed software has been magical as I no longer have the worries of manually generating reports, the software does that for me

Pros
Accounting seed is plus for any accountant who seems stressed in generating financial reports. The software does everything for you in generating reports and will always give audit trail incase of errors

Cons
Accounting seed software needs you have basic knowledge of accounting principles,hence may not be user friendly if u lack that.
