    It has been good so far. Tech support has room for improvement, but overall it has been a good program.

    Cons
    Lacks ability to restrict certain permissions that can lead to accidental or deliberate manipulation of data resulting in order processing errors.

    The lack of Vendor control, and Vendor Options make things hard. Doing a Daily Sync with Quickbooks does not come with out issues, and tax rounding is Canada is a large issue.

    Paul D.

    When we are having technical problems with this program, it can bring our entire operation to a halt and there doesn't seem to be any sense of urgency on the part of the technicians at Acctivate.

    Excellent Software for a small company

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We started using ACCTivate in 2010 as an inventory add-on to Quickbooks. We have very much appreciated all the software had to offer. We have modified the system somewhat over time to fit our needs. We also had some custom reports created for us that have worked very well. Very pleased with the software and the support team.

    Pros

    -Very intuitive product -Easy to learn -Highly functional -Crystal report software for reporting is easy to learn and use to customize your reports -Very flexible system

    Cons

    -Original Reporting is lacking. Custom reports are available or can be made by a third party -Very occasional issues syncing with Quickbooks

    Vendor response

    Hi Ruth, Thank you for sharing your feedback. It is great to hear all you have gained and the growth in your nine years of using Acctivate. Kind Regards, Erica Avila

    Acctivate Review

    Reviewed 6 months ago

    We have been using it for 6 years now. There was a bit of a learning curve. Once sorted out, we can order receive, pick and sell our product with ease. Database size has been a bit of an issue and Intuit file size management grows quickly. Great product for a mid size business.

    Pros

    Acctivate brought us up to todays technology in product Inventory and sales control, at a reasonable price.

    Cons

    The lack of Vendor control, and Vendor Options make things hard. Doing a Daily Sync with Quickbooks does not come with out issues, and tax rounding is Canada is a large issue. We do have SOP's in place to administrate these short falls.

    Can't function with Acctivate

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We bought Fishbowl inventory in 2017 and returned it within a month. And then spent considerable time looking at options and reviewing them. We spend days and days with Acctivate before buying. And then we bought it. It took three or four months to get us to an 'active state'. At which point we discovered that the entire way we setup our product structure would not work. So we started over and now,...

    Pros

    Lot's of handholding during setup. Possibly considered affordable - unless you count your time. At this point - not much - We have fought for a year to get the system online.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for the ideas and needs of customers It hides important information needed to make decisions in the windows where you need to make decisions. It doesn't auto update backorders A huge list of other items.

    Acctivate Inventory Management works well suits our needs

    Reviewed 9 months ago

    Very please with our choice

    Pros

    The setup and learning curve were very reasonable, daily use and upkeep is easy

    Cons

    The dashboard needs to be more user friendly to setup and use (sizing and placing the report boxes is awkward) Some dropdown menus are not intuitive, but once learned easy to navigate

    Excellent for the Price!

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    We were able to greatly improve visibility of our performance allowing us to focus resources in the areas that needed help. The quality and consistency of our output also improve dramatically. Probably the one area that had the most drastic improvement has been our warehouse. The ACCTivate our inventory is the most accurate it has ever been and order processing accuracy has also improve dramatically with the use of the mobile scanners.

    Pros

    Software is filled with many intuitive features that cover a wide variety of of business uses in everything from order processing to inventory management. Inventory management includes ability to manage using bins and multiple physical or virtual warehouses. This is a strong feature for an application in this price range. The ability to create custom fields in virtually every section of the software...

    Cons

    Out of the box reporting is a bit limited depending on your needs. Very basic reports are fine and they are accurate, but if your business has complex or custom logics by which you evaluate performance, you will need to hire a report writer (Crystal Reports) to build your report templates. No real audit trail tracking/reporting so seeing who did what can be a challenge. Lacks ability to restrict certain permissions that can lead to accidental or deliberate manipulation of data resulting in order processing errors.

    Vendor response

    Gabriel, your feedback is greatly appreciated. We are happy to hear about the improvements across your business after implementing Acctivate, especially the visibility & productivity gains that have allowed you all to focus on the work at hand. We also continually strive to learn what businesses need and how we can enhance our software, so it is also good to know about reporting and permission based needs. - Dakota
