When your small business needs accounting software, it can be difficult to determine which of the many applications available will work well with your established processes. Lescault and Walderman can provide you with a full evaluation of your small business, then identify which accounting software programs will be most beneficial while staying well within your predetermined budget.
The best accounting software solutions for your company will depend on a variety of factors. Some features to consider include:
Ease of Use
For many, the primary concern when looking at accounting software is ease of use. Hours spent training and retraining employees to use a software program is not optimal no matter what capabilities it may offer. Instead, software applications should be simple with as small a learning curve possible.
The accounting software you choose should have the options needed to save you time and money in the long run by taking over tasks like accounts payable and receivable, payroll, bank and credit card reconciliation, and other essential duties like these that become overly time consuming.
The scalability of an accounting software program is whether or not the software can be used by multiple users, or, if a new program is required for each user and/or each office site. This is an important concern as costs can escalate rapidly depending on your company’s needs.
Customized Report Options
Your accounting software should be able to take all the data you input into it and run the types of customized reports you need from it. If it can’t then the software is only doing a fraction of it’s job and you’ll want to keep exploring other programs for one that can do the work you need it to do.
Will you be able to run your new accounting software on your existing computer infrastructure or, will you need some new components to get things going? Your answer can make a huge difference on the total cost of your accounting software and is very important to consider prior to making any final decisions.
Each and every small business is different, and, as a result, so are their accounting needs. We’ll take all of these factors and more into consideration and develop an accounting software package that will meet your all of your needs. Then Lescault and Walderman will oversee the implementation of the program(s) and, we’ll also remain available for whatever level of support your small business needs to maintain the software and use it to its full potential long after implementation.
