«We have been using the ACOM EZPrint software for 10+ years. Very low maintenance system.»

Overall rating

Benefits:

The system was already in place when I started with the company 12 years ago so I wasn't involved with the initial setup of the software package. It is one of the lowest maintenance software packages that we have. The only times I have to do anything is to change the signatures on the checks or perhaps change the 1099 forms. I don't have to do anything for the normal day to day operations that use the EZPrint application.

Drawbacks:

Since we upgraded software a few years ago I haven't had to make any changes to any checks or forms but the last upgrade changed the way we have to do our changes. It was switching to a more online system for changes so I have zero experience doing that. So when we do need to change the forms I know I'll have to contact the ACOM help desk to go thru the change process. Some type of online training would be very helpful in this regard and I haven't seen anything from ACOM about that.

Benefits:

With having 2 offices and being 2 hours apart this software has helped with the amount of invoices that we have to mail back and forth or email back and forth to get approvals. It is nice that invoices are now available to easily access for approvers even after the invoices have been paid. The software has helped cut down on the amount of paper we use and the amount of printing we have to do. One of the customer rep has been great, anytime we have needed something he has been readily available and if he was not going to be available, he made sure to let us know.

Drawbacks:

For the entire process to work, there are several pieces of software that our ap clerks have to access which causes a lot of confusion. There are a TON of steps and they have complained about the number of clicks they have to do to complete an invoice. I feel like there are several normal accounting practices that we had to have, the customer rep change the program to make work for. We have had to have about 4 different workflows created since the beginning, it doesn't seem to be an easy way to make changes to the workflows. Sometimes I feel like we will never be independent with this software, although it has been getting better. Our approvers have also complained about the number of clicks they have to see all the pieces (PO, invoice, and packing slip) we had to have a custom button/view built so that approvers only have to click on the button and see all the pieces, which they now love. This should be standard! I feel as if this software would be better suited for a smaller company, the Iowa Select has too many invoices and too many approvers for what this software was originally designed. I would have given more stars if the program started out what it is now after we had the customer rep make all the changes.

Benefits:

We purchased this software to replace another package we were using for our forms overlays. The graphic designer made laying out the overlays very easy. One things we wanted to do was to be able to email the forms that had overlays and this product did that. In addition we can modify the overlays via green screen or the graphic designer which is very useful. We also purchased the add on modules to do emailing of the form as well as create PDF's. EZeDocs is very powerful and we found new ways to use it that were not aware it could do. For example I was looking for a way to monitor an output queue for a spool file with a specific formtype and then send the spool file in PDF to the IFS. EZeDocs made that a snap and I had it running it less than 10 minutes. Support on the product is fantastic and their support people get back to you right away.

Drawbacks:

Because the product can do so much, sometimes you can get lost understanding how to make something happen. For example we had a multi-page form and it took us sometime to figure out all the nuisances to make that work. I would like to see a better tutorial that gives examples of simple form overlays to more complex ones.

In sum:

Emailing forms with overlays, easy to create overlays.

Benefits:

Simple interface; yet powerful for most end users. Single sign on through Sage makes it less to manage as well.

Drawbacks:

Could use a more modern/updated face lift for the front end GUI that the end users. Would like to see an easy way to import things in bulk - without having to add through the front end GUI in order to associate it to a sales order.

In sum:

I don't use it daily - but from what I hear it's flexible in the sense you can use it from our ERP, or we can use the standard web based front end without having to go through the ERP. Additionally it's very straight forward - and requires very little training during on-boarding.

«Company implemented use of Acom software several years ago little effort and has worked very well.»

Usability

Overall rating

Benefits:

The Acom software integrated easily with our existing ERP system and has worked almost flawlessly for the years we've had in use. We're able to print on blank check stock which helps by not having to maintain a check number log for audit as well as lessened security for the blank stock versus pre-printed as there is no account number, name, etc.

Drawbacks:

Cost, since it isn't free! Otherwise, the least favorite is: duplicate copy prints on the same printer using plain copy paper but with the same magnetic toner as required for the checks; magnetic toner is, of course, more expensive but the toner cartridge still lasts a very long time, around a year for us.

In sum:

The check printing process is much easier than before and saves time. We also feel that it's helpful in fraud prevention.

Benefits:

We have been an ACOM Solutions customer for almost 15 years. The software is easy to configure and use, especially with their newly improved EZDesigner Pro GUI software for Windows. The designer is intuitive and easy to learn. We are able to design forms and invoices quickly since the designer is WYSIWYG. (what you see is what you get). We use dozens of forms here at our company and we use ACOM's EzEmail module to deliver over 3,000 emails a day to our customers. These emails contain order acknowledgements and invoices at shipping time to keep our customers updated during the order fulfillment life cycle. We were able to deploy these functions in EzEmail in just a few hours.

Drawbacks:

The only complaint I can come up with is, I wish there was a better search function when working with emails. On rare occasions, someone will need an email resent and it's difficult to find the original email to queue up for resend. It would be handy to be able to search for wildcards in the subjects of the email. ACOM releases patches and enhancements to their software frequently, so I am hoping improved searching will be coming out in the near future. Otherwise I can't think of anything else negative to say about EzEmail and all of their other modules.

Benefits:

Integration with Sage MAS and web functionality are the two selling points. i also like how complex you can make the workflow as this is a major plus for our company.

Drawbacks:

The issues that do not get resolved like credit memo processing and lack of use tax integration with Sage MAS to accrue use tax on invoices. I also feel that it needs an app for smartphones and tablets to allow approval by those in the field more easily, as well as a remote capture ability to take pictures and upload from smartphone.

In sum:

Paperless accounts payable.

Benefits:

The capability to move things around and align/adjust the placement of data on the from based on our needs is definitely a plus The ability to create copies of the main form and tailor the form to meet the needs of our internal customer so the form is not a cookie cutter is also a plus for this software

Drawbacks:

Making changes to the form is not very easy. It is difficult to determine where the output would be on the form. For instance making changes on the HTEXT or TEXT line and figuring out the across and down number, is not easy.
