The 2016 Buyer's Guide to Accounting and Financial Software

The Modern CFO’s Balancing Act

Financial leaders today balance the need to manage an increasing level of business complexity with the need for speed. You’re expected to keep your eye on multiple entities with multiple regulatory frameworks and multiple currencies. Think that’s complicated? Now add frequent change to the equation. A monthly financial check-in isn’t good enough for today’s CFO. You need the agility to make decisions at a moment’s notice—and those decisions must be based on the real-time financial truth.

SMB Confidence in Cloud-Based Accounting Skyrockets in 2015

Last December we posted a link to Software Advice's Consumer Confidence in Cloud-Based Accounting IndustryView for 2014. That study showed that although small to midsize businesses still lagged behind larger organizations, a majority of them already expressed confidence in cloud accounting solutions. Essentially 2014's report told us that confidence in cloud-based accounting software among small to midsize businesses had reached a tipping point. 

We were therefore eager to find out how things have changed in just one short year. Well the new study is out and the findings are pretty dramatic.

If you're like most businesses, you've been using QuickBooks to manage your company's financials.

It's well known. It's easy. It works.

But if your business has moved beyond the entry level, QuickBooks is costing your organization—slowing growth, stalling revenue, and draining productivity. When you need deeper functionality, improved automation, more robust security, tighter internal controls, and greater visibility, it may be time to switch to a new accounting system.

White Paper for CFOs: the Best-of-Breed Advantage

When Buying Accounting Software, Bigger isn’t Always Better

We wrote a blog post in December about this: when you're looking for accounting or financials software, choosing one of the biggest players around isn't always the best idea. Finance organizations agree: SaaS "cloud" solutions for financial management bring significant advantages to the organization: higher productivity, smarter revenue recognition and greater strategic insight. But what's the right solution—a best-of-breed approach that lets you integrate with your preferred sales force automation and ERP systems—or a monolithic suite of apps? Understanding the tradeoffs has never been more critical.

Essential Features of a Modern Accounting System for Software Companies

Embrace Change or Suffer the Consequences

Accounting systems are not something you change or replace very often. However, as your software company grows in size or complexity, prepares to go public, or is already a public company, you will reach a point where manual processes are draining your productivity and you struggle to analyze the growing range of your financial and operating data. You’ll need a better way to handle accounting within your software company. You’ll need to modernize your system.
