TEC 2012 Financial Software Packages for Medium and Large Enterprises Buyer's Guide


Accounting and financial management is one of the most mature enterprise software markets, but that doesn’t mean it’s stopped evolving. TEC analyst Aleksey Osintsev walks you through the latest developments in financials and accounting solutions and looks at how trends like cloud computing, mobility, and social media are reshaping the industry. The guide also includes feature lists, vendor comparison charts, thought leadership from industry experts, and real-world case studies.

Accounting and financial management software is among the first software applications to have been adopted by organizations of all sizes and in all types of industries. In fact, the software has been around almost as long as computers have been in use. As the general concepts and principles of accounting follow objective, rational rules, it was relatively easy to develop accounting packages and to have them gain quick and widespread acceptance within the business community as a powerful tool for managing the financial activities of a business unit or entire organization. It’s hard to imagine that any company or governmental organization today could function without an accounting package in place— from micro businesses with a few users to national governments and global multinational enterprises with hundreds of users performing accounting and financial management work on a daily basis. With ample experience in accounting software, today’s tech-savvy financial managers and controllers are looking for software that not only is capable of performing accounting transactions and generating a standard set of quarterly and annual reports, but also is flexible enough to absorb and accommodate changes in the economy, business realities, and technological trends; is sufficiently rich and scalable to address a number of daily operations challenges; and is easy to work with. This buyer’s guide examines the major issues that medium and large businesses experience with financial and accounting processes, and looks at what various solutions can offer to mitigate those problems.

Issues Faced by Accounting Departments


As accounting and financial departments and associated business processes are an inherent part of any commercial or non-commercial organization, these departments face the same challenges as the rest of the company—a need to keep the business competitive and respond to tough competition during difficult economic times, attract and retain customers, provide an extremely high customer support and service level, constantly review and improve business processes, and many others. At the same time, accountants experience challenges and business pains owing to their specific accounting and financial management processes and tasks. Following is a list of major challenges and issues faced by accounting and financial departments with regard to these processes and procedures.

  • Accounting and financial activities and internal processes must conform to various types of standards and rules, from international regulations such as the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) to local or even municipal requirements. This is exacerbated by confusing taxation and reporting regulations prescribed by law. The task becomes much more complicated upon company expansion and entry into different markets, regions, or countries— in which case accounting and reporting processes must comply with multiple standards simultaneously. And at this point, the process of financial and reporting data consolidation becomes a non-trivial and constantly changing task—financial managers and their employees must always keep abreast of these changes.


  • Relatively recently, the need has emerged to accommodate alternative accounting models and non-standard accounting and financial management principles, in addition to or as substitutions for traditional ones. Lean accounting is an example of such a model. Unlike traditional accounting practice requirements, lean accounting looks to calculate and track added value streams, sees a company’s assets and expenses in a different way (e.g., inventory as waste to be minimized or eliminated rather than simply a company’s assets), and generate profit-and-loss statements based on lean principles instead of GAAP or IFRS or in parallel to mandated (i.e., traditional-type) reports.
