Advances in Software for SMBs

SMBs have always been the poor cousins when it comes to software, forced to choose between basic, standalone, desktop applications, and re-packaged hand-me-down solutions originally developed for their much larger corporate competitors.

If you're in the market for accounting software, here's a handy reference guide that lays out the accounting features and functions currently available for SMBs. It will help you determine which features your organization needs—or doesn't.
