Reviews of FinancialForce Accounting

Helen from MRM says...

It enables companies to manage their money from the time the prospect is identified all the way through to the A/P process. The reporting features alongside Salesforce create automated and efficient data at your fingertips. I really like everything being on one platform.

The good: That it is on the force.com platform.

The bad: Importing of data from other platforms.
