The ever changing world of accounting software can be a minefield, so where do you start when you need to choose a package?
It’s important to get this right. Spend too much and you could have an over-complicated package that you don’t need. Spend too little, and you could find yourself less efficient than before you invested in the software.
If choosing the best accounting software leaves you confused or concerned, Mitten Clarke can advise on the ideal choice for your requirements.
Our accounts team has a vast amount of experience covering a large number of software packages, whether cloud or PC based, including:
- Xero – cloud accounting
- KashFlow, and many more.
choosing the right accounting software
Before we recommend a suitable accounts package to you, we need to understand first of all:
- what you need it to do for you
- who is going to be using it
- where it is going to be used
- what you need out of it.
Once we know the answers to these questions, we’ll help you select the right accounting software for your business. And we can supply and install it for you, if you’d like us to.
training and ongoing support
Having chosen the right software, the next step is to make sure that you get the most out of it.
We can organise a personalised training programme for you, which is usually held in our dedicated training room in Staffordshire – an ideal environment in which to learn new skills. Typically these will be one-to-one half day sessions, using your actual accounting records.
Throughout the training and beyond, we’ll also give you online and telephone support whenever you need it.
Our specialists attend regular software courses to keep themselves up to date, and we are accredited software providers for most of the popular packages. Many of our team have advanced report writing skills, so if you need bespoke reports or perhaps your invoices need formatting in a certain style, then they can do that for you too.
So, if you need help or advice with choosing your accounting software, or want to get more out of your existing one, then do please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
