Accounting Applications


M

Mike Cocker

I work in Canada for a $4.5-$6 million company. We also have two locations
(Waterloo, ON and Richmond Hill, ON). Our Waterloo office is the head office
and it uses Great Plains Dynamic as our accounting application. We currently
pay atleast $3000 on maintenance and upgrades. Apparently next year we will
need to upgrade this product entirely to MS SQL Server. This is going to
cost us an additional $7000 (server, upgrade, etc.) plus ongoing maintenance
and upgrades. I was wondering if there is an alternative that will match our
needs? We need to do the following:

*Consolidate two companies into one
*Do payroll for atleast 70 employees
*Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
*Compare actuals to budgets (monthly, year to date and lytd basis)

We are looking to cut costs, but still run our day to day operations.

Thanks in advance.

one suggestion - look for reviews from publications with some objectivity
(if that's possible!) such as AICPA's Journal of Accountantcy article on
mid level accounting software -
http://www.aicpa.org/pubs/jofa/may2002/jones.htm

it includes
solomon / MS great plains
Carillon Pettit & Co.
Epicor Epicor
Software
Computer
Associates’
InterBiz
Progression Macola
