market today.                   Selecting the right one for your company can
Be a daunting                   task. You must consider many factors, such
as
software, hardware,                   accounting issues, and internal needs
that might be specific                   to your company.When reviewing
software features, you need to review at a                   long list of
criteria.
Among them are these:
list of 5 items
?         Reporting

?         Customizability
?          Operating                     system

features:

software when you purchase it. You will want to check these reports against
your current reports.

Customized reporting means you can create your own custom
reports. If you need information that is not contained                 
     in the standard reports, you will need to write your own customized
reports.
