My Review of the Aqilla Accounting Package

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: There is a lot more to this package which I have not had chance to explore - my experience so far has been frustrating at times when I know I should be able to do things but have trouble to find out how, but on the whole Aqilla seems to be good value for money.

Pros:

It looks good on screen The easy ability to download information onto excel The ability to open up a second screen

Cons:

The top tab names, I find I regularly go into the wrong location for items. The help button, it has never brought up the problems I am trying to sort, seems to pick just the first word and give all items with that one word Changing Rough Posted documents to 'Posted', the system does not post into the period the document is already allocated to automatically, with several periods involved you have to Post month by month. Not being able to see the currency value total if more than 1 page, have to download an Excel report for the information.

Pros:

ability to extract reports quickly using Aqilla and Sharperlight

Cons:

the issues faced in our first year of implementation relating to transactions and effect - sometimes seems too complex

Easy in Easy out

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: Full accounting of Sales, Purchase & General Ledgers, through to Monthly Management accounts.
Budgeting and Trend analysis.
KPI's and ad-hoc queries and investigations.

Pros:

Ease of duplicating repetitive transaction saving time and potential keying errors. Integration with Sharperlight making data import/export a breeze. Continuous product enhancements keeping it current and improving the finance process.

Cons:

Some features are only progressed through Consultant intervention - as an IT savvy user I'd like to be able to do more.

Good for the right size/type of business

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: Good value for a basic reporting tool with integrated AP and expenses which would be perfect for a relatively stable group structure

Pros:

Good value for money Continuing to innovate Reasonable base funcationality on all the things will need

Cons:

Doesn't feel 'consumer grade' around expenses Approval hierarchy/workflow is a work round and not robust
