January marks the start of a New Year and, if you own a business, it is time to recalibrate your course for the year. This exercise involves goal setting, planning, market analysis, and, of course, accounting. Accounting may not be anybody’s idea of a fun activity but with today’s software tools, you can simplify the process and have everything you need at your fingertips.

Are you unhappy with the accounting software you use? Are you tired of paying an exorbitant price for it? Wouldn’t you like to have accounting software for your paint contracting business that can track your projects from estimate to invoice to “closing the books” with ease?
