With tons to choose from, what sets the best accounting solutions apart from the rest? What qualities should you look for when selecting a new accounting solution for your organization?

A recent article by CFO Tech Outlook helped shed some light on this topic. They gathered feedback from a distinguished panel of CEOs, CIOs, and industry analysts to determine their Top 10 list of Accounting Solution Providers for 2018. Based on their review, here are three key qualities to consider when evaluating the best accounting software solution for your business:

1. Automation

Regardless of which cloud accounting application you use, it should ultimately streamline routine accounting tasks and minimize manual entry and unnecessary data redundancy. Through built-in automation, back office staff can save countless hours and improve productivity gathering, reporting, and processing their accounting information.

Whether it’s innovation or customizability you desire, an accounting application should evolve as your company grows.
