Accounting Software Selection

With the number of computerized accounting software packages available for small businesses and individuals growing every day, selecting one that is right for you has become increasingly difficult. As accounting professionals, we are exposed to most programs through trade journals and actual use. Our experienced staff can help you choose and implement the system that best fits your organization’s needs.

Deciding what software your organization needs can be a daunting task. Many companies are not aware of the choices available to them and miss out on opportunities to pick the best software for the company.

JAGPC has experience using numerous software packages including QuickBooks, Peachtree, MYOB Accounting Edge, MIP, Microsoft GP, etc. We will take the time to review the company  procedures and make recommendations based upon the company’s needs to make sure the chosen software package satisfies the company’s requirements.

One additional item that makes us unique is that as a firm, we are MAC users! (Don’t worry- we are still fully functional in PC software as well). For those clients who prefer Mac’s over PC’s, will feel right at home. We have clients who use both QuickBooks and MYOB Account Edge for Mac. If you are considering making the switch to Mac, we can help you through that transition as well.


As Certified QuickBooks Pro Advisors, we are proficient in all aspects of QuickBooks. The set up of the program is one of the most critical steps to using QuickBooks. Correcting a QuickBooks file is much more difficult than setting it up correctly from the beginning.

Our process of setup takes into account all aspects of your business. We take the time to understand your business prior to starting so we can help cater your chart of accounts to uniquely fit your business.

       For Mac Users

Our practice is unique in that we have made the decision to use Macintosh computers. This allows us to offer services to our clients who also use Mac’s in a way that other CPA firms cannot. For our Mac clients, we offer the following services:

QuickBooks for Mac – Our firm specializes in QuickBooks for Mac. We work with our Mac based clients in setup, chart of account setup, bookkeeping services, and month end close services. Because we utilize Mac computers, we work with ease in transferring backup files to and from our clients.

MYOB AccountEdge – For those who like portability of their financial information, Accountedge can be an attractive software. With the ability to use the apps for iPhone and iPad, this software can be a good choice for small businesses.

Facetime – We utilize Facetime between our clients who have Mac based devices. Our outsourced accounting clients who have iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Mac computers have access to us for face to face meetings without the need of being at the client’s offices. This allows an unprecedented level of customer service between us and our clients while allowing our clients to save fees for a reduction of travel time.

iChat – Same concept as face time, except in a chat based environment. Our clients can send us quick questions and get responses quickly.

We work with our clients who want to make a switch from a Windows based environment to a Mac based environment. As a small business that has made the change ourselves, we understand the productivity gains, and the benefits to making the switch, but also understand some of the errors people make when changing platforms.

Whether you are new to the Mac or an experienced pro, our firm is the right fit to help you with your Mac based accounting needs. Call us today for a free consultation!
