How we can help

It is not just as easy as picking whether you prefer Sage or Pegasus. When choosing a new accounting software system, it is wise to do your homework and find out everything you can about the potential systems that you are considering. That is where the team at Monpellier come in handy.

Here are some things to consider:

  • Is the software built for a particular size of business? For example, a micro business’ needs will usually be different to those of a large company.
  • Is the software a good fit for your specific industry or business sector?
  • How much does it cost and are there any add-on expenses for maintaining the software?
  • What features does the software offer? Can you customise it if the basic components don’t fit your specific needs?
  • Will the software help you comply with statutory requirements, such as audit trails, tax returns or annual accounts?
  • Is the software accredited as compliant to a standard or code? The HMRC Payroll Accreditation Scheme, for example, shows that the package correctly carries out the PAYE functions.
  • What support is available for the setup, staff training and running and maintenance of the system, and at what cost?
  • What security measures are in place to back up data and keep business and customer information safe?

You don’t need to answer all of these questions yourself. Our Business Software Consultants are at hand to talk you through what is best for your business.

Here at Monpellier, we find out exactly what you need and want the system for, and then advise based solely on this  fact.
