Learn about factors to consider when you are making a decision about which accounting software program to use for your small business. And, learn to assess whether desktop or online software makes the most sense for your business.
The accounting software industry seems to have made the decision that online accounting software should be the only form of software for everyone. They seem to think it is inevitable that every business will move to using online instead of desktop accounting software, and that the only reason for not choosing online software is a failure to understand technology. Despite the thinking of the software industry, there are perfectly good reasons to choose desktop software over online software even when you understand technology. Learn to make your software selection based on the needs of your business rather than the predictions or hopes of the software industry.
