The process of selecting a new accounting system can become the most difficult task an organization and most particularly its selection team leader can ever undertake. That's why we have given you all of the tools you need to make this process less threatening, more efficient and certainly more effective.
If you are a larger or specialized organization, a simple needs definition such as the one you can create in the On-Line Edition might not be sufficient. The On-Line Edition contains 700 questions from which you can build your needs requirements query. The CD Edition contains up to 3,700 questions.
As its name implies the CD Edition is a desktop application that you install rather than accessing via the web. Normally we ship the CD as well as accompanying printed software selection manuals. If you want to save a bit, you can elect to purchase only the CD (all of the manuals are on the CD in PDF format). In the end it's really a matter of detail. If you want to create a very comprehensive needs definition document or if you want to actually add additional requirements unique to your firm, you should purchase the CD Edition. Otherwise, access the free On-Line Edition.
The Accounting Software Library CD Edition
The Accounting Software Library CD Edition is a fee-based tool that contains up to 3,700 questions from which you can build a comprehensive needs definition. You can follow an easy step-by-step process to find the best suited process.
We will provide you with two manuals that literally take you by the hand and lead you through the entire software selection process. We will even help you analyze your business processes to give your new business management system a firm foundation for sustained growth.
Although your requirements document will certainly be comprehensive, the process itself is very easy.
Review the questions regarding functionality and reports. We have conveniently broken the questions into small related segments.
Pick the questions that best represent your requirements and indicate your relative level of interest. If you are not interested in a question or even a whole module, simply skip them.
The feedback we receive from users is that the thing they like the most is the questions we ask. The questions we ask will help you understand what’s possible in terms of functionality and will certainly help you save hundreds of hours if you had to start this process from scratch.
If you want to describe your requirement in more detail, add a comment to any of the individual requirements so resellers or vendors will understand exactly what you need.
If you are interested only in a small group of known products, you can restrict the analysis to only those products.
Once your needs definition has been completed, the program will rank each product and display that product’s percentage of needs met.
Create a Gap Analysis to identify a product’s relative strengths and weaknesses.
Compare multiple products side-by-side.
Having completed your analysis using the CD Edition, you can launch the On-Line Edition to learn more about products of interest, review integrated ISV solutions and services and finally search for a product specific reseller in your geographic region.
If you need a bit of assistance, you will never be alone. Give us a call and we can discuss your project.
