Gabriel Pedre

Excellent for the Price!

2017-07-18

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.

Cons

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.

Acctivate has some powerful features for the price

2016-03-25

Being a key partner to Quickbooks and having these two Sequel Databases sync daily, allows me to source bookkeepers who readily trained in Quickbooks and able to spend more time on proactive analysis of our business using many standard and custom reports we have had made in Crystal reports which is the primary database query program that takes our data out and export to useful programs such as excel.

As business owner, we buy products a lone with the supports, i.e. People behind the products. The supports are the most important. We had bad experience with big accounting software, such as netsuit and quickbook, but never had problem with activate.

I recommend that you look for something that is fast and gives your sales people and purchasing people a product that they will be happy with. Get them involved in this process. Don't just make a decision and stick them with the end result. The people that use the product should get to decide. Not the guy who wont be using it day in and day out. Whatever software you get- tell your employees that they should give something new a chance to make things better. There are always one or 2 people that like to nay say any product. So cut them off at the pass- before this happens.

The platform gives us real-time visibility into key data that we were previously tracking across multiple spreadsheets which required ongoing effort to keep updated, and yet the data was still never as fresh as you'd want.

I have implemented 3 successful Acctivate implementations.

2016-04-28

Pros

The product is stable, in SQL, and the database is well organized, normalized, which lends itself to reporting. I like the posting process overall (much easier than a batch system - i.e., Sage 100).

Cons

The product has limited functionality in some key areas: user-defined fields are limited, importing data into data entry processes such as purchase order, the data entry flow leaves much to be desired - having to click on fields, tab sequence, limited ability to default values in sales order entry to make the data entry process go faster, smoother.

Make sure it does what you want out of the box and it will work great. If you have a need to customize the data entry, integrate with other applications, or add new fields it might not be the right product for you.

2017-07-21

Pros

You just simply need to know the sequence of steps and in a few clicks, perfectly formatted forms are ready for printing. The reports are well organized, informative, and great tools for analysis.

Cons

What would someone pay for an inventory management system that works without a flaw in a QuickBooks environment?

2016-05-12

Pros

Acctivate Inventory is a full featured inventory management system that can be added onto QuickBooks easily and cost effectively.

I like the functionality of the product first and foremost and its ease of use. The vendor's training program is excellent and as I mentioned above their customer service is very very good as well. I am a business consultant to many companies and have never hesitated to recommend Acctivate,

Take a very close look at Acctivate Inventory. In my opinion and experience you can't go wrong with this program. It will accommodate all your inventory management needs today and will help your company grow as well by allowing for more inventory locations and complex tracking requirements like tracking lots, manufacture dates, and much more.
