An important facet of any business is the ability to manage its finances. A core part of this comes down to selecting an accounting package. With a wealth of options and different software available, it can be narrowed down to a few based on the size and scale of a business organization. For many small and medium sized companies, Peach Tree Accounting Software from Sage can suit many, if not all, their requirements.
The price of peach tree accounting software is very affordable, and competitive with Intuit Quickbooks –the other competing software in the same market segment. A great feature within peach tree is the main “Business Status” screen, which shows a wealth of useable and relevant information. This often saves time in manually looking up reports just to see the commonly needed information from account balances, accounts payable, and accounts receivable. It’s a great way for management to see profit and loss as well. The interface is simple and intuitive, the information is very well presented, but the main purpose for any accounting system is the function – which we will take a look at next.
What really differentiates Peach Tree Accounting Software from competitors such as Intuit Quickbooks, is some of the innovative features and functions now built in. One of the major features is the ability to attach any type of document into the system as a supporting document. Peach Tree clearly understands the importance of supporting a paperless future for the world of accounting. This is a common complaint many have over how Accounting continues to utilize heavy amounts of paperwork, in a day and age when many other industries have migrated to conducting their jobs entirely paperless. It leads to an increase in efficiency and accessibility of information.
In addition to nifty features such as this, Peach Tree Accounting software offers the same solid accounting functions that they have come to be known for. With many different versions of the software, allowing the software to bridge into business management and not just accounting, the program can satisfy many functions within any size company up to 50 people. Currently on the market is Pro, Complete, Premium, or Quantum. Each offers the standard accounting and business management tools, but the difference being more support for more users, advanced inventory and reporting functions with the 2 latter versions. For those unsure of the software as opposed to other programs on the market should rest assured, Sage software knows their accounting programs from small to large scale organizations, as they also own the MAS accounting systems
