FinancialForce Accounting is a comprehensive and innovative financial management system, which takes a fresh approach to accounting services. The online accounting app combines the power of Force.com’s cloud with a groundbreaking accounting system design. At its core is an innovative accounting engine which leverages the technological and virtual workplace enabled by Force.com (including collaboration tools like Chatter). The engine contains a central set of accounting components that are embedded in a Salesforce environment, thereby making it the perfect financial complement to Salesforce CRM.
FinancialForce Accounting is incredibly easy to use and has full integration with Salesforce CRM. Since FinancialForce.com is built on the Salesforce.com platform, FinancialForce Accounting orders can be formulated from a Salesforce entry as well. This is such a great function. It means that users don’t have to spend time manually entering each order and can focus on more important tasks.
IntegrationFinancialForce Accounting sits neatly on top of Salesforce CRM's cloud platform. Both the apps share the same infrastructure, database, development tools, reporting tools, and user interface. This is a really cool facet of the service because both FinancialForce Accounting and Salesforce CRM are embedded together, providing a simplified user experience and enabling more fluid training across functions.
CollaborationThe Chatter function makes it simple for the entire business team to collaborate on orders, unpaid invoices and collections. This makes FinancialForce Accounting a great fit for any growing organization that is seeking a flexible and scalable financial management system.
