Beats CaseWare for NTR's - A Rival for Modern Firms

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: It's not quite there yet, but after some improvements Countable may be the leading software to manage NTR engagements for firms that are cloud-focused. My firm doesn't do Reviews/Audits and I wouldn't use Countable if we did... but there aren't many good alternatives for a truly cloud based engagement manager for Notice to Readers. If you're still doing the majority of your year-ends with desktop software backups (QB/Sage), then this may not be the product for you. But if you're a modern firm with a focus on the cloud, then Countable is a great option.

Pros:

-Integrates directly with cloud accounting software like QBO/Xero -Uses AI/machine learning for account mapping - it's imperfect, but will improve over time -Easy to learn and fully usable right out of the gate. No customization required. -Best support I've ever received from any product/service. The Countable team is dedicated to this product and are constantly accepting feedback and improving it.

Cons:

-Countable (at time of writing) is a new product, so there are still minor bugs and full functionality hasn't been reached yet - however, it works well for Notice to Reader engagements. I expect that it will improve considerably over the next 3-6 months.

Countable review

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: It was easy to onboard clients, set year-ends, and begin general file preparation, however, as it is still in the early stages, there were issues. The company is led by a [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] who is a CA with firm experience which will ensure the product is developed to ensure efficient file completion.

Pros:

Increases efficiency when preparing standard compilation engagements while following CPA practice standards. Having the most current templates (i.e. independence and planning) ensures compliance with ever changing standards.

Cons:

As it is relatively new, it does not have the same features of Caseware, and therefore, can't replace it. Several months of development will be required to get on the same level as other providers. It may be geared for those firms wanting to outsource the preparation of engagements (or components of).

Great product- getting better

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: The team at accountable have been great to work with. They are very focused on helping to improve efficiencies and remove bottle necks from day to day aspects of our jobs.

Pros:

Very quick to integrate data from bookkeeping softwares. Mapping process is fast. Quick to create gifi export file so the T2 preparation speed and quality is improved.

Cons:

moving between engagements could be improved. If you want to refer to the prior year file or a different client file you need to exit the engagement which does slow down the process.

Countable has been a lifesaver.

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: I find that the Countable team is extremely responsive to support requests. They are also very happy to receive suggestions to help improve the software.

Pros:

Everything about Countable seems easier to use than other software packages that I've tried to use. I can link documents, insert comments, adjust a set of financial statements for presentation with very few steps. The presentation is easier for me to manage. And I can switch between companies quickly.

Cons:

It's still a relatively new software package so there are little things that still haven't been implemented. For instance a standard set of Financial Statement notes are not available at this time, but I know that the Countable team is working on it. Any tweaks or suggestions that an accountant has to help the Countable team improve the software are being looked and and they are making efforts to incorporate as many of these suggestions as possible.
