"They don't understand that they could use that software to manage their businesses and make their lives easier," says Marlene Spurgin, a Sage certified trainer and consultant with Business Support Specialists, Inc., (BSSI) in Prosperity. "A lot of people use bits and pieces of their software, and don't grasp that they can use the entire product and get a better handle on their business.
"The more you can get the program to do, the less you have to do with spreadsheets. Some people would be completely astounded at how easy they can make running their businesses."
While BSSI specializes in software from The Sage Group, the challenge is for small business owners to make themselves familiar and comfortable with whatever accounting software they might be using.
"A good business software package will not just do accounting but also business management,"
"Those are three things that can really make a difference in your business and how it operates," she said. "I have had customers tell me that their software puts them in charge of their business, that they don't have to wait for the accountant to tell them how they are doing."
