    I use MYOB which is horrible but I am looking at moving over to Xero which is an online solution that I have been hearing great things about. You can check it out at http://www.xero.com/

    I’m also thinking of making the switch from MYOB to Xero, and I’m looking for a project management tool that integrates with it.
    WorkFlowMax has been suggested, but it seems overly complicated for what I need – just want to keep tabs on projects clients, prospects and deadlines, not every single task or time-clocking. Can anyone recommend anything else?
    Thanks,
    Sara

    Hi Rox

    Selecting an accounting/bookkeeping system you really should make a list of what your needs are, and if the program will grow as your business grows

    Things you should consider

    1. will you be entering data or will you hire a bookkeeper
    2. do I need it to allow for budgets
    3. do I need payroll and/or inventory features
    4. do I need it to be Cloud or loaded on my PC
    5. will it save me time or add time
    6. will it produce the reports I need

    These are some of the questions, another key question is what is my budget to acquire and setup the system

    I strongly recommend what ever package you select always take the Test Run period and play around with Demo Data

    As an accounting firm we use many packages, but I have found what is suitable for one client is not always the case for another.

    Also you should never be pushed into using an accounting package because your accountant uses it, it should always meet your needs and wants

    Should you have any questions feel free to contact me.

    Best of luck

    Hi Rox,

    I’ve been using GNUCash for a few years now. I’ve written about it briefly here (contains links to manuals, etc too).

    I’ve found it to be a useful, free software alternative to the major paid accounting programs out there.

    Having said that, as others have pointed out, your choice of accounting software will also be determined by whether or not you are doing your own accounting, or whether you’ll need to export data for your accountant.

    Open Office and GNU Cash are both great. Both very easy to get to grips with and both FREEEEEEEEEEE!!!

    All the best

    We have been trialling Saasu for a few months.

    So far the product has been really good and I’m quite happy with it. The only issues so far is finding Bookkeepers who are willing to use it has been a challenge. Also, operational support is limited – they will help you with standard ‘functionality’ but if you need to know anything beyond that, you’re on your own.
