If you ask people what R150 is worth to them, you’ll get a variety of responses – to some, R150 is a visit to their local coffee shop, to others, it’s a week’s groceries. But regardless of your financial position, as an entrepreneur with a start-up business, you are most likely trying to make your money stretch and you don’t want to spend a lot on financial management and accounting services.
A quick Google search will provide you with many such services and systems, each with their own price tag. In order to know what’s best for you and your business, you would definitely need to scrutinise each offering to determine cost, the level of accounting know how needed to use the product, the features and capabilities included, and the general ease of use.
With so many attractive solutions out there, it’s quite understandable that you could feel overwhelmed. Generally speaking, there are in fact several excellent business management and accounting solutions on the market and while they might all look similar to each other you will be hard pressed to find a product that isn’t crammed with lots of accounting jargon and complicated functionality. Financial management software tends to be complex at the best of times and lacks simple ease-of-use for the average man on the street.
