Reporting made easy.

Reporting is the backborn of every organization hence producing correct and meaningful Reports is very important to our clients and their stakeholder hence we choose to use syft because its made reporting easy.

Pros

Syft Analytics is a game changer. In a busy working environment like ours, where we serve a large and diverse number of organization, i have found that Syft Analytics has made it easy to produce reports in just a click of a button. The variance column also help me analyse my transactions if they were allocated properly to their classes, and i can drill down to my accounting system and identify transactions making up a certain amount.

Cons

the software can be slow sometimes, cant entirely blame the software, it cold be my internet speed also.

Amazing Reporting Software for SMEs in SA

I love this product as it is so easy to use and allows for optimal management reporting to clients if the cloud accounting systems are correctly set up and bookkeeping is done very accurately. It reminds one to focus on the client and to report and advise on everyday business aspects that most business owners do not spend enough attention on.

Pros

Awesome SME reporting functionality for management purposes Valuations are a great feature and assumptions are adjustable for specific circumstances Key indicators are a great plus especially the Benchmarking feature Excel imports, as well as direct integrations, makes this a beautiful product for both Cloud Accounting and old school desktop applications such as Pastel.

Cons

Forecasting is not really a reliable feature as it does not allow for detailed inputs from the Balance Sheet Forecasting does not show the assumptions used so you still have to use Excel to finalise the forecasts. Feels elementary on Budget and forecasts The excel imports are great, however, direct integration through either SQL or Pervasive will be an absolute lifesaver. Industries can be more specific on the Benchmarking function.

Reasons for choosing Syft Analytics

South African compatibility with SageOne Accounting SA made it easy for me to decide as the other programs did not integrate with SageOne Accounting SA. The price was available in ZAR and it also reports in ZAR currency which the others do not necessarily do. It is fairly affordable in relation to the other packages as it does not charge per user but the price is fixed per month. Really love this concept as it makes it affordable for the smaller accounting practices with SME clients where the software charges cannot necessarily be transferred to the client.

Syft for small to medium enterprises

Pros

I like the budget reports on Syft, these were insightful for myself and the client.

Cons

Some aspects of the software were not user friendly especially the fact that it was difficult to amend reports. The end users of the report found the reports to be ''too detailed''

Syft Analytics - What every accountant needs

Pros

The most part that I like about Syft Analytics is that it's easy to use and time saving as well. Integrating it with Xero is the most effortless exercise. Which gives you time to review and analyse data. My clients are very happy with the management reports that I send to them each month as they are professional and easy to read. I do recommend it for any type and size of an entity.

Cons

So far I haven't heard a significant problem. So far so good.

Reasons for switching to Syft Analytics

We found Syft Analytics easy to use and very affordable.

Very satisfied

Pros

We used to do our management reports using excel and were skeptical about moving to a product we had to pay for. After using it for a few years now we can't imagine not using it. The single cost for unlimited companies is an excellent value for us as an accounting firm as we use it for all of our clients. The reports look very professional and the arrow indicator of increase or decrease on most reports is especially appreciated.

Cons

We used to have many graphs of the financial health of our client's businesses. Syft could still use more as the only one we currently use is the cash flow bar graph. The graphs on the side of the other reports are simply too small to see or use effectively. The refresh data feature is very slow and often gets stuck, requiring a page refresh but this just slows things down a bit, it doesn't make it unusable.

Reasons for switching to Syft Analytics

One click reporting is far superior to the constantly broken Excel formulas. It is also able to adapt to different types of business and number of accounts which is not easy to do in an Excel template.
