I know very little about accounting software nowadays - my CFO is very much on the Sage train so we've gone from 50 to SGBFN which they're now axing... CFO wants to go to Intacct but I'm wondering if there's anything more out there. So where else to turn but the learned colleagues at accountingweb? (sucking up always works, right?)
I've been looking at Netsuite ($$$$$), Intacct (Sage are not in my good books at the moment), possibly the old Microsoft Nav, Xero, and AccountsIQ but it's been a while since I've properly been in the market so I'm not sure which holds up in day-to-day use.
Thing is, I liked Sage financials. It could do so much and it was so flexible in what it does. It did/does what we need it to do:
- departmental reporting
- endless GL accounts
- approval processes for invoices
- Excel import of transactions
- PDF invoices attached to the transactions
to name but a few
I know AccountsIQ advertises heavily over here, but the features actually seem... Great? As in, I could sway my CFO to leave the comfortable bosom of Sage. What are your experiences with companies/clients using either Intacct or AccountsIQ? Are there any particular gripes or issues that keep popping up? Or is there another product I'm completely missing? I know I know, there's Xero but last time I used it I just wasn't a fan. It didn't seem like it did enough for what we'd need in this business and the fact it doesn't do native approvals is a big minus.
Thanks in advance!
