At the foundation of every business is an accounting system – whether it’s a one-person contractor or a business with thousands of employees – if you want your business to flourish you need to manage your financials successfully. Managing your accounting doesn’t have to be a struggle, finding the right tool can make the process a breeze for your controller. An accounting package that is tailored to your unique needs can help you better understand your business and effectively plan for the future – but it also needs to be easy to use.
The Challenges of Finding Accounting Software
Most of the all-in-one club accounting systems available on the market are far from easy to use and powerful. Because these club system providers primarily focus on an all-in-one solution for your business, the accounting package is severely lacking the functionality your controller needs to be successful. On the other end of the spectrum, stand-alone accounting packages are designed to be easy to use, but they have two fundamental flaws: (1) because they’re not designed with clubs in mind, some of the key features that would make your club controller’s life easy are missing, and (2) the stand-alone system does not integrate with your club systems, this means staff need to complete a push to the GL daily.
