The Different Types Of Accounting Software

Many of us have become accustomed to dealing with at least some light accounting software for keeping up with our personal or family finances. If its time to revisit the type of accounting software that you use for home or business, its helpful to have an understanding of the general categories of accounting software.

For the most part, accounting software is made up of various modules, which hare different portions that process and deal with certain areas of accounting. Some of the most common type of accounting software include: - QuickBooks and PeachTree are great accounting software programs for start-up businesses, but you may be experiencing a need for more users or to handle larger transactions if you are growing. There are some signs to look for that will let you know it may be time to upgrade your accounting software. They are:

You're using multiple software products to run front and back-of-office operations (i.e. QuickBooks or PeachTree along with Spreadsheets)
You're looking for specific features that are not offered in your current accounting/operational software (i.e. Inventory Management, Manufacturing, e-Commerce, Scheduling, Job Costs, Shipping, Payroll, Credit Card Processing, Customer Relationship Management, etc.)
You expect or want a growth in revenue, customer base, locations, and/or employees and your current system won t handle it
Your employees are unhappy with the current software because of double-entry, it's too hard to understand, it's too old, etc.

Some other everyday occurrences that may be a red flag also include an increase in overtime hours, having to take work home to complete it, use of post-it notes to help remember tasks and not being able to report and analyze your business operations.
