  Publishing company looking for a new accounting system

Good afternoon everyone, I work for a mid-size (around 85 employees) publishing company and we are the market for another accounting system. We currently use MAS90 version 4.00. Our accounting department sat down the other day to discuses a system upgrade to MAS90 v4.2.  I have do a little research on a  new system for our next meeting in about two weeks. I would like to hear from anyone that may know of some good accounting software so that I can read up on them, and help my company select a new accounting system.

I'm not sure if you have looked at Quickbooks Enterprise.  I have not seen any complaints with that particular program.  Peachtree Comlete and MYOB are excellent choices.

You should consider open source accounting software.  It seems to be the next wave of accounting solutions. has a large number of accounting projects, about 11,000.  You should try to pick one that is being managed by people in your industry.  If you cannot find one like that, pick one that uses a programming language and/or database that your staff or local consultant is already familiar.  If neither of those produce an obvious pick then perhaps you should consider webERP, a web based accounting package that is the best I have ever seen for a small business.  

Since it is free, there are no annoying pop up messages like you find in low end accounting packages.  There is only one install to do at the server.  Client installs for most proprietary accounting software is difficult, there is no client install for webERP.  I would debate any other software representative that there is no more portable or scalable accounting software product on the market.  The server can be Windows workstation or server, Novell, Mac, or Linux/Unix.  The client can be Windows, Mac or Linux or any other with an internet browser.  The same software is installed no mater what OS or client you use.

No need to worry about the company going out of business.  The software is supported by end users and developers from hundreds of companies.  Since you have the source code you can hire modifications done so there is no reason to ever change software again.  Open source is now the market share leader in server software, web software and many other software categories.  It is only a matter of time until it dominates accounting software too.

There is more information on weberp at and  There is an excellent article at on open source accounting software.  

Good Luck! - Mo
