What is everyone's opinion on different accounting software? I am looking for something mid-priced that can do invoicing, inventory, price configurations, etc.
As far as a free software, I just dont trust it because Im too afraid to loose all my info if something were to happen. I dont want to purchase quickbooks because I use it at my other job and its just too much... I want something that is more simple and of course less expensive. Cakeboss is my top choice I suppose because it has exactly what we need, but Ive read mixed reviews and Im not sure if its worth the $150.
So.. what do you use and whats your opinion!
Thanks in advance!
I use QuickBooks for accounting. For baking inventory and costing I made my own Excel spreadsheet.
Many people use Excel. If it's on your computer, try that first. Can't beat the price.
I have cake boss and I have a mixed review about it. I love that it keeps all my customers and their previous orders all one place. I like that it is fairly simple to use once all your ingredients and materials are all put in and I like the calendar and the home page organizes all your weekly due orders. Oh I also like the fact it keeps track of all my sales tax collected. As far a using it to keep an accurate record of costs and profits I don't like it much actually don't even us it for that feature at all. I actually sit down every week and figure out my cost and profit by hand myself. Honestly the more I run my business the more I'm able to do a quote by hand much faster and more accurately than cake boss. Was it worth the $150 yes to me it was especially starting out but if I were more knowledgable on excel and felt confident in my ability to use excel I may have went that way. Hope that helps!!
