All the accounting software provide the features required by their target customers.



However some software have certain features due to their focus on certain target market.



One of the problem of the older technology like PC-based technology is the lack of features provided by cloud technology. Technically because of the technology difference, many fantastic features of the cloud technology like access from anywhere, access from mobile and integration with  other software modules are not possible. UBS and MYOB suffers from this weakness.



The UBS and MYOB have been in the market for more than 20 years. They have a strong following and many users are trained in the system. So they have the advantage here. The UBS is designed for experience accountant in mind. So many small enterprises that could not afford accountant will find it very difficult to operate.



Whereas Quickbook and OfficeCentral are designed with entrepreneurs in mind. So the system is easy to use and very intuitive. The Dashboards and Reports are very friendly to entrepreneurs.



OfficeCentral designed the system with entrepreneur in mind. OfficeCentral provides CRM tools. CRM is one of the major tools that entrepreneurs can use in order to be very effective. CRM provides them with sales management, sales staff KPI management, Leads and Account management and the Point of Sales, Distribution Management and Inventory management. The Mobile Apps for sales staff also comes in handy.
