t’s a good idea to talk to:
Similar businesses. Your contacts may be willing to share experiences of accounting software. Learning how companies like yours have successfully (or otherwise) implemented accounting software can be enlightening.
Your accountant. Your accountant, bookkeeper, or other trusted financial adviser should be able to recommend software. Be aware that some accountants receive commission from software companies, so their recommendations could have an ulterior motive.
Your staff. Make sure the people who will be using your accounting software play a part in selecting it. It’s important they are comfortable using the software, and have confidence in your choice of software.
