Accounts IQ transformed our business

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Accounts IQ has helped us to create a much more streamlined, better-controlled and more effective finance team. The back office processes are more efficient, and the enhanced reporting provides us with deeper and richer insights into our business performance. The price point is also very reasonable for the level of functionality that we now have.

Pros:

Being cloud-based has been a significant factor for us. One of the main other reasons for selecting Accounts IQ was the consolidation functionality which works really well. In terms of fitting in with our business processes, it gives us so much more functionality that it has helped to drive necessary changes in the way that we operate, in a very beneficial way.

Cons:

The only real challenge we found was with our staff getting used to a different software system to do their work. Otherwise it has only improved our processes, controls and reporting.

I am not happy, but at this stage resigned.

3.0 7 days ago New

Comments: Cumbersome, very cumbersome. Difficult to get accross our experience to relevant people so change could happen. The obligatory phone call happenned and nothing changed. Number of time would have to beg support to actually help me, never mind some of the passive aggresive or overtly wishing you happy rest of the day when you cannot get problems sorted. Left feeling let down in comparison to what was promised.

Pros:

BI Codes Reporting Fixed Asset Register

Cons:

ONLY ONE SCREEN CAN BE OPEN. e.g. if you need to compare 2 invoices, you cannot have both opened. Same for PO, etc. System regularly overwrites data entry, as not all information is editable, this makes life quite difficult. Simple data entry requires very high concentration and double checking the information you are inputing is actually recorded. There is only pretend interest from the support/developers. Also, not clear whether what we paid for was fully delivered or we are due refund as despite number of attempts to get a clear answer I was unsuccesful.

AccountsIQ Saves us a Day a Week in Processing Time

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: The structure of the coding framework in AccountsIQ is extremely flexible and saves us so much time when preparing our external financial reports. We have added seven or eight entities since implementing AccountsIQ and we simply replicate the original model for each new subsidiary. It is a very uncomplicated approach and a time-saving solution for group companies. We've integrated AccountsIQ with other business systems such as electronic document management and a property management system. These integrations save us so much time and reduce the risk of human error. AccountsIQ also synchs batch payments with our online banking, which also reduces duplication of work. AccountsIQ’s customer success team are excellent. They helped us define dashboard reports which provide financial analysis in a very consumable way, allowing us to quickly identify areas in which we need to take action.

Pros:

AccountsIQ saves us a day a week in processing time in data entry from other business systems, reconciliation, and automated invoice processing which allows us to spend more time on strategic tasks such as analysing and presenting information so that the senior management team can make more informed decisions. AccountsIQ simplifies complex consolidation procedures; and has enabled us to integrate information from our property management system Landmark; and provide insightful management reports using dashboards. We like the fact it has helped us streamline processes, it saves us a huge amount of time, it's a scalable system too. The advanced Business Intelligence, reporting and consolidation functionality are very good. We need to produce reports for our investors and it's really easy to get these on demand from AccountsIQ.

Cons:

There isn't anything I don't like and we're glad we found AccountsIQ.
