So you want to do your accounting in Salesforce? You are not alone. Many businesses are realizing that they can save time and reduce errors by integrating Salesforce, the industry-leading customer relationship management (CRM) tool, with a best-in-class accounting platform.
The key question is which accounting solution should you use? As you’ll see, Sage Intacct and Accounting Seed are the two preferred solutions—you just need to decide which one best fits your business needs.
Native or integrated to Salesforce?
There are two ways to do accounting in Salesforce. You can either use native Salesforce accounting software like Accounting Seed, which is built on the Salesforce Platform and uses the Salesforce API and IT architecture, or you can choose the powerful integration from Sage Intacct that is designed to integrate easily with Salesforce’s CRM.
Some businesses prefer to use native Salesforce accounting software because of the simplicity of immediately connecting with other native apps in the Salesforce ecosystem. Others want the power of Sage Intacct - and nobody makes integration simpler than Sage Intacct.
Other factors to consider
There are several other important factors for businesses to consider when deciding between Accounting Seed and Sage Intacct.
Accounting Seed is an especially good choice if you’re looking for customizability at an affordable price. You can pretty much customize anything you need, from data tables to the user interface to the types of security you want.
Sage Intacct stands out in two other areas that are critical to many businesses. If you expect your business to grow significantly, Sage Intacct is likely your best option because it offers virtually unlimited scalability, with no user limits. There is also extensive support for multi-entity and multi-location businesses, making it easy to see real-time reporting across dozens or even hundreds of consolidated entities.
The other strength Sage Intacct brings—and this is key—is its out-of-the-box functionality, which quite simply can’t be beat. As the best-in-class cloud-based financial management solution, Sage Intacct can help businesses avoid time-consuming workarounds and costly IT support.
