Accounting Software: Getting to Know the Different Types

Accounting, Financial Records | January 8, 2019

Regardless of the size of your business, it is useful to get to know the different types of accounting software. Accounting software can help you determine how successful your business is and notify you of areas where your finances might need some work. At Leskun & Son Accounting, we know the benefits that proper accounting services can have for businesses of all types and sizes, which is why we offer a wealth of bookkeeping services and we encourage our clients to implement accounting software in their business.

Find out if you should hire a bookkeeper or use accounting software.

Types of Accounting Software

There are a couple of different types of accounting software available to business owners and many accounting software systems within each type. The types of software offer varying levels of control, detail, and security to businesses. There are three primary types of accounting or bookkeeping software and they are as follows:

Spreadsheet Accounting Software

Spreadsheet accounting programs offer a high level of adaptability but a low level of intuitive function, in that they do not catch your mistakes or perform complex accounting functions. These programs allow a business owner to record information and make simple calculations, which is useful for smaller companies or businesses that need to list expenses, sales, or other data. Spreadsheets are also frequently used in conjunction with other bookkeeping programs.

Learn about the different types of payroll systems.

Commercial Off-The-Shelf Accounting Software

Commercial off-the-shelf accounting software is usually an excellent option for small- to medium-sized businesses. This type of accounting software often comes with different graphing and charting options for viewing bookkeeping data, which can be useful when making financial decisions. Many types of commercial off-the-shelf accounting software also come with a system for error detection.

Enterprise Resource Planning Accounting Software

Enterprise resource planning accounting software is typically used by larger companies with more complex finances and accounting needs. This type of accounting software keeps track of all aspects of a business’ finances and compiles it in a large database that can be tracked and analyzed.
