I was very surprised when I polled small business owners about cash flow issues that almost 40% of the small business owners who responded said they didn’t use any type of small business accounting software. That means they’ve been using pencil and paper or an antiqaited spreadsheet to keep track of one of the most important components of their business. What a waste of time.
If you’ve decided that purchasing small business accounting software is one of your resolutions this year, you have a bunch of choices — and price ranges too. One product you’ll want to take a look at is Bookkeeper 2007. I had a chance to test run this software recently and consider it a good buy for the money. At a conservative price of only $29.95 it’s a good deal for the functionality. And the learning curve is a short one. The set up wizard will guide you through your company set up when you first sign on. From there, the software is pretty intuitive and the users manual is written in plain, easy to read language for times when you need more help.
From check writing, payroll and credit card processing, to purchase orders, billing, invoicing, inventory control, and reporting, Bookkeeper can easily handle most of these tasks for you so you can spend time doing what you should to grow your business.
