Listing of the 350
Most Important Features
in Accounting Software


 

By J. Carlton Collins, CPA

 

There are thousands of features to look for in accounting software; however, many are basic features that have already been widely adopted by most of the top products, while others are very obscure and rarely needed. For example, nobody runs around looking for a product that will "write a check" - they all do that. Likewise, few people are interested in finding a product that integrates to an AutoCAD system. This feature is rarely needed. 

With this in mind, I reviewed several detailed listings of more than 4,000 accounting software features in an effort to identify those features that are most important. I then assigned each feature a rating of either 1 or 2, depending on how important I thought each feature was. 1 means that it is a very important feature, but it is fairly widely offered among the top products. A rating of 2 means that it is an extremely important feature, and is a typically more difficult to find among the best of breed accounting software packages. In the end, I came up with the following listing of 350 features that seem to be the more important features to look for when evaluating accounting software. I picked these particular features based on my twenty years of experience working with thousands of companies in search of accounting software system. I did not use a scientific approach to identifying these particular features, rather I used a "gut" approach. I hope that you find this list helpful.
