Long ago, a wise old accountant named Bud, once pointed out to a much younger version of me, that most businesses have very similar accounting needs with respect to Accounts Payable, General Ledger and Payroll systems. Where they differ the most is in the Sales and Accounts Receivable (also Inventory Systems, but that is a story for another day) module.


Some examples of this might be illustrative. A shoe store has different customer tracking needs than a publication or a welding shop. A burger place might never need to record a customer’s name and address or track the production of the components of the customer’s burger. But all these businesses are treated similarly by standard off-the-shelf accounting packages.


I want to review why a business might want to consider replacing or augmenting the standard A/R package built into their Sage, AccountEdge, MoneyWorks or Quickbooks systems with a FileMaker Pro-based solution.
