What does the company do well?
I love AccountEdge. AccountEdge I consider to be the best small and medium size business accounting software on the market. If you are a Mac user, it way above Quickbooks in its feature set. Beyond AccountEdge, I have used and taught others - Peachtree, Sage, Quickbooks, and Simply Accounting. So I have experience with a lot of accounting software. 1 - AccountEdge has AR, AP, GL, Payroll, Time Billing, and Inventory all built in. 2 - Payroll processing and basic tax forms, can be done by yourself without having pay extra (They only charge to update tax tables) 3 - They have free iPhone and iPad apps 4 - The software does Retainers / Escrow / Trusts 5 - The software has UPS shipping integration built in for no extra charge 6 - Multiple Location Inventory Tracking for no extra charge 7 - The file is cross platform, its the same for both Mac and Windows 8 - You can get a free copy of program for your accountant 9 - You can import and export most the data 10-The feature set is equilivant to the higher end versions of Sage and Quickbooks. 11-Accountedge is a lot cheaper than the competitors. 12-They listen to customers and make changes yearly to their software to improve it, according to what their customers tell them. They have made changes off my feedback.
