My overall experience with Sparkrock has been positive. There have been challenges, and usually because I didn't listen to their advice. I have learned over the years to trust their judgement, while I know my organization best, they know the product and have been through many more implementations and upgrades than I have.

Pros

The flexibility of the product. The ability to use as much or as little as you want. The opportunity to expand as funds become available. The use of dimensions enables specific reporting requirements. The software is a Microsoft product so information is easily transferred to other Microsoft products. The introduction of a "search" function in recent upgrades is a simple function that I use almost everyday.

Cons

The accounts payable g/l batch report and sales invoice when originally printed cut off fields and customization's where necessary before they could be used.

We implemented Sparkrock 2016 Finance in March 2018. Our organization has embraced the change to a new system and worked with Sparkrock to develop important changes to our processes. The system has provided our organization with the ability to have a complete paperless process for purchase requisitions, payment of invoices and employee expense reimbursements. We have utilized the Jet Reports to create effective reports for our end users. These reports have helped our managers stay on track with budget and have an up-to-date understanding of their financial position. Managers are seeing costs being charged to their budgets immediately and helping them make more accurate financial decisions. Financial Services has been able to utilize the system to create efficiencies in external reporting and seen increased ability to analysis our spending and key areas of performance. Throughout our journey with Sparkrock, we have always received excellent service from implementation through to support. Sparkrock is always willing to work with us to review new areas of efficiency and are here to help us implement new processes. We are very appreciative of our move to Sparkrock.

Pros

- ability to create paperless processes
- approval routing for all areas of finance including purchase requisitions, employee expenses, journal and budget entries
- ability to track the status of submitted items
- end users can view attachments and invoices
- easy to use reporting which you can customize to your needs
- customer services

Cons

- cannot customize the web portal
- the learning curve for back office users is higher than I expected. It took a long time to get everyone set up with screens that worked for them.
- receiving function for end users

I am currently working on creating reports for each of our programs/funders as required both in Sparkrock and in Jet Reports. I have asked about this previously, but have not been given an answer. It would useful for the program to have saved report settings so the date/dimensions/filters do not have to be applied every single time.

Pros

I generally just work with A/P, but I do like how the support documentation is easily available. I no longer have to go through paper files to find things.

Cons

I notice that new users struggle to use the program when they first start. It's not as intuitive as I would like it to be.

Great product. Great company. Would highly recommend.

Pros

This product is extremely user friendly and easy to navigate. The option of going paperless is fantastic (all AP invoices can be attached electronically). When you encounter an issue, the response from customer service is quick. The entire Sparkrock staff is extremely friendly and they are passionate about their product. They work with you to ensure an easy transition/upgrade.

Cons

They offer training videos in the customer support center but some are not thorough enough. I hope they release a tips and tricks for AP

Pros

General ledger entries can be set up to include Ministry of Education expense categories and objects. This allows for quick confirmation of where expenses will be reported when viewing these entries. Very happy with their customer service.

Cons

The WebApps has some functionality that isn't a perfect fit for us, and we've had to make some changes to adjust to what functionality exists.
