The Right Business Accounting Software

If you are looking for business accounting software, we can help. It is not easy to pick software that meets your needs and helps your business grow. Many accounting system choices look the same, because the core features are the same. The right accounting software for your business takes care of the details and works like your business needs it to work. 

We can help. For 25+ years, Data Guidance Group has helped companies understand options, identify possible answers, and implement solutions. Our specalties include selection, implementation, training, reporting, custom development, modification, and support of existing applications.

An Approach Tailored for You

Your business is different from other businesses, so we don't use a cookie cutter approach. We learn all we can about your business and find a solution that fits your unique needs. We realize that you don't need our expertise all the time. So we provide only the assistance you need and want. We fill gaps you need filled; our job is to engineer our own obsolescence.

We've collected best practices in the Guide to Selecting Business Software. The Guide helps you avoid traps and assure success. It guides you through key things you need to do to select a business system. You can have a copy emailed to you.

Does Your Accounting Software Help Your Bottom Line?

Bookkeeping records kept by hand before accounting software. Picture of pencil, paper and calculator.Your business might be in many different situations. Consider these:

  • Your system is aging, and you think you should start looking at your options to replace or upgrade it.
  • The system you have now doesn't do what you need it to. You need to select the right accounting system.
  • You have good or adequate systems but think the problem might be business processes.
  • Software you bought a few years ago isn't really working for you. You think you may have to replace it, but you'd like other options before you spend the money and endure the pain of a new system.
  • You know there is an issue, but you're not sure what it is.

If none of these describe you, but you'd like to ask a question about your situation, drop us an email.

Will a New System Fix My Issue?

You probably know that computer systems don't solve business problems. They do make you think through the issues, processes, and procedures in enough detail that you solve the problems.

Our business experience helps you find the best choices. Sometimes new procedures or processes can solve the problem; other times a bit of tweaking makes everything right; sometimes it is necessary to replace your software. As one of our clients, you'll have the information you need to get the best return on your investment.
