1
Small Business Bookkeeping Software - Tips For
Choosing the Best System
Small business bookkeeping software is a powerful
tool. Are you moving up from a manual system or
maybe you're ready to begin doing the bookkeeping
yourself rather than having it done outside. Here
are 5 tips for choosing wisely.
2
Know what You Want?
Any accounting software will perform the core
accounting functions of general ledger, accounts
receivable, accounts payable and the cash
functions. But often you need more, depending on
your industry. So the best investment you can
make for picking software is to define what your
needs are.
3
The Price is More than what it Costs!
By that I mean that "free" software isn't free.
Learning software is often a bigger cost in time
and effort than the initial cost. Don't forget
the training costs too if you have staff. Pick
the wrong software and you may get to go through
all that again soon too.
4
Where's The Help?
You'll need some help to learn the software and
you'll likely need on-going support too. Now
hopefully not very much, but somebody must work
through whatever problems arise. Is the only help
just a manual? Is it through a toll free number?
Maybe you can get local help? Often local
accounting firms are experts on the major
software products. Plan ahead for inevitable
problems.
5
Can You Graduate?
As your business grows, you may need more
accounting power. Choose some brands of software
and you can upgrade to more power smoothly. If
you have to switch brands of software, you get to
pay the start-up training costs all over again.
Consider whether you can upgrade.
6
Making The Most of What You Get!
Generating tax forms and government documents is
one of the goals of a bookkeeping software
package. That's staying out of trouble. But
accounting is much more powerful than just
staying out of trouble. The right software can
help you produce reports that help you make
decisions. Better information can lead to more
profits and better control of costs.
