Accounting Software Library Comparison Tool

On this site I especially like the fact that you can compare accounting software products side-by-side. When I compared Microsoft Dynamics GP with Intacct and Acumatica I was able to open a PDF with over 1,000 line items, comparing features of all three products in a yes/no style. Check it out!

If you are looking for a Microsoft Dynamics GP partner, contact CAL Business Solutions. or 860-485-0910 x4.
