With so many different types of financial software out there, how do you choose what is best for your company? A major key to getting value out of an accounting software package is to get one that generates reports that will help you manage your business. In addition, if your business is growing rapidly, it would be best to find one that can be expanded. You should also evaluate the software based upon who is operating it. If the person operating it cannot understand how to operate it, the software will not be of any use.  Some good financial accounting software packages for small to mid size businesses are QuickbooksSage MAS200, and Peachtree.
