About 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.

    We needed a system that integrated with our contacts and programs. We wanted to be able to see what programs a donor had given to along with financial data for those programs. With Accounting Seed working inside SalesForce, all our data, across all departments, is in one place can easily be linked, integrated, displayed, and reported. This allows us to better serve our constituents with accurate data immediately at our fingers via desktop or mobile apps with access anywhere in the world.

    Pros

    Accounting Seed works splendidly inside SalesForce. You get all the advantages of a product that integrates with all your SalesForce data. No need for imports or exports. Everything is in one place. Employees learn one system and they can work all across the organization. The availability of multi-levels of security allows you to tailor applications to the appropriate person, department, or team. Internal control features and audit trails are securely automated. Backing up your data is simple with just a few clicks. Project managment allow each project to act almost like its own company and integrates well with any other Salesforce data.

    Cons

    I would like to see more preformatted reports. 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. All reports can be exported to Excel. This allows those that know Excel to manipulate the data as only Excel can do. That is nice but requires extra effort to format the data.

    Very pleased with working with team at AS. I marvel at how they cross from one industry to another with skill. Insurance accounting is very different from traditional accounting systems and i am impressed with how well AS has handled learning and growing in our vertical.

    Pros

    One we figure out the workflows and nuances with Accountingseed (AS), it is a pleasure to work with. The speed of the software is fast and AS is on top of regular updates to add important and necessary features. We have been a user of AS now for 3 years

    Cons

    Updates are not always pretty and could be better tested however AS is not deaf to any problems that result from updates or patches

    Good value, doesn't scale well

    Reviewed on 26/1/2021

    Pros

    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

    The inability to send ACH payments out of the box was a huge piece for us. I was referred to Check21 which was ridiculously expensive. Also cash application takes too long if you have a customer that has x number of invoices. Some of our larger accounts have more than 2000 invoices open at a given time. Paging through screens takes a very long time. Seems like we have outgrown AS's sweet spot of transactions.

    In addition daily billing/payable posting takes a long time, (exceeding lines). Bank rec gets split into multiple recs due to 4k item limit.

    Once you adapt to moving around the system, it makes getting from one area to another very easy. It has been a pleasant experience learning this system.

    Pros

    The ability to attach all types of documents in one place. Having a client/vendor record with all transactions and documents in one place allows for easy research and reconciliations. Being able to customize the system and made reporting more efficient. Working with customer service has been a pleasant experience.

    Cons

    The budgeting feature is very complex compared to other accounting software.

    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.
