#11: Choosing an Accounting System – Considerations & Low Cost Program Comparison

Mar 11, 2018 | Office Operations

You’ve GOT to know what’s going on with your money if you’re going to grow your business. Stop making invoices in Word and tracking your money with Excel. There are some great tools now that take care of it for you!

First, I talk about what to look for in an accounting solution and then I give a quick comparison of the most popular choices for online accounting programs. (NOTE: Prices may have changed since I originally did the video, please do your due diligence when pricing out.)

The freebie for this Sunday is a Cheat Sheet that gives a snapshot of questions to ask and what to look for when looking for an accounting system and a comparison chart of the three programs reviewed.

Grab the cheat sheet here.

Here are some resources mentioned in the video:
