Makes Sound Financial Success
on 23 July 2012
I ran this on my laptop and installed to one folder in my programme files, fast and without installation problems. Immediately it becomes clear that with this programme comes plenty of help with -
* a Quick Start Guide
* full access to a complete manual via the `Help Menu'
* email and website support
* free updates for life
Backing up data can be automatically set up to save the BAK folder regularly, which acts as an extra safeguard for all your precious accountz, however it should be externally backed up, too in case your hard disc dies. In my experience, you can never have too many copies of your most important files - in more than one place other than on your computer. It runs on Window/Linux/Mac, which is good.
My initial reaction to the name `Accountz' is that the name doesn't sound very professional, but I was pleased with the software, which was user friendly and loads fast. In some ways, I should imagine it is quite a complex system for a novice, but once set up (which I found easy, although time consuming -- aren't they all?) it ran very smoothly. After a little practice it does make accounting this way, less of a worry. That Eazy button is very useful, too, but once you get the hang of it, you'll not need to use it as much. Should you need more help, the Accountz staff are always on hand and the lifetime upgrades is definitely a positive bonus to consider. Instant 1 click VAT Return and the fact that it's HMRC accredited for online VAT submission is also a very appealing addition. As an accounting professional it feels quite adequate for small to medium sized businesses. The running of reports is a little basic, but you get the accuracy you need and for the money, this makes sound financial sense and a viable option to consider to get a business accountz package that does the hard work for you.
