AccountingSuite At A Glance

Good: Easy to access features from software's main page; all modules are fully integrated; connects to over 6,000 financial institutions so transactions are automatically downloaded into software.
Bad: Software can get buggy at times; not intended for large businesses.
Bottom Line: Integrated accounting solution that helps small businesses manage their finance and inventory, close sales faster and provide better customer service.

Product Overview

AccountingSuite is a cloud-based, scalable accounting solution that helps startups and growing businesses manage their daily finances. It connects to over 6,000 banks and credit card institutions, so transactions are downloaded and reconciled into AccountingSuite each day. Businesses can manage cash flow and inventory, close sales and track their employees’ time straight from the software.

AccountingSuite is an integrated solution, so companies can purchase the modules they need or go for the full suite. The software’s main page is set up with all the modules displayed as icons on a single screen, so users can easily access the features. Multiple tabs can be opened for multi-tasking functionality, rather than multiple windows.

The modules are:

  • Cloud banking
  • Accounting and reporting
  • Sales
  • Inventory management
  • Purchasing
  • Project and time tracking

We’ll provide details on each module in our Feature section below.

AccountingSuite has several benefits, which are:

  • Accessibility from any web browser with real-time data security and backups
  • Flexible pricing tiers that don’t have any add-on fees
  • Scalability that supports a small company’s growing needs
  • Unlimited access for a company’s accountants and bookkeepers

Features

Cloud banking – As noted above, AccountingSuite integrates to over 6,000 financial institutions, so transactions are automatically imported and reconciled within the software. Users can view individual transactions and either accept or reject them. They can also check multiple bank balances from a single screen.

Accounting and reporting – The accounting and reporting module includes financial information and reports to help business owners make better decisions. AccountingSuite is accessible to a company’s internal or external accounting team, so business owners and their accountants collaborate together. The module includes built-in and customizable reporting templates for financial analysis. Other features include budgeting, general ledger that supports recurring journal entries, chart of accounts with sub-accounts, and audit log with drill-down functionality.

Sales – The sales module helps businesses close deals faster with features such as creating new invoices with a single click, invoice templates for future use, and access to inventory and order information for providing answers to customers’ inquiries. Other features include built-in quotes and estimates, prepayment capability, customer invoice by email, price matrix, multi-currency capability and integrated shipments. Cash sales are automatically posted to the system. The module integrates with Avalara for calculating sales taxes.

Inventory management – In the inventory management module, users can track inventory items by category or location. They can also track inventory by projects and costs. Other features include bill of materials, back ordering functionality, customized inventory fields, advanced unit of measure conversion and an advanced pricing matrix.

Purchasing – In the purchasing module, users can create new vendor invoices straight from the purchase order or by using an existing invoice template. The invoice screen is broken out into two tabs, with one tab for expense and the other for items. Users can designate an expense or item to a particular project. Purchase orders can be created and edited. There’s a history snapshot feature that lets users undo any actions if there’s a mistake.

Project and time tracking – The one main project-tracking feature is the Project Profitability Matrix, where users can track their projects within a grid. Projects can be tracked to sales quotes, purchase orders, invoices and inventory. Employees and contractors can record their time spent on projects either on a single day or across multiple days. Rather than manually entering time for each project, there’s a copy feature that allows employees to copy previous time-tracking entries. Business owners can bill the time worked to their clients by creating invoices from time-tracking entries.

We also want to mention that AccountingSuite has an eCommerce feature that integrates to Shipstation (shipping solution) and Square (credit card processing software), and helps product-based clients manage their online inventory and sales.
