Accounting Software Programs: Where to Buy Them

Accounting software programs can be purchased in a variety of ways, depending on your needs. One of them will most certainly work for you and your business.

Brick and mortar retail store

You can purchase basic accounting software programs on the shelves of retail stores. It’s convenient to put the software in your cart purchase it so easily, but keep in mind that if you have questions about the program’s specific functionality, you may have troubles getting those questions answered by the retail sales associates.

Software developer

Buying software directly from the company that developed can be beneficial because you can get your questions answered before making a purchase. You may even be able to get a personalized demonstration of the software, something that is nearly impossible for retail stores to offer. Talking to somebody who knows and understands the system, and also takes to time to understand your business, can not only bring you peace of mind, but can ensure a better accounting software program match for your business.


Buyers do most of their research online these days, and therefore it might be tempting to simply go in and purchase accounting software programs online. If you decide to purchase in this way, be sure you are able to really understand how the system works and get all of your questions answered before buying. This might require communication via email or phone, but the time spent will be well worth it down the line. After all, this will be the tool used to manage your business finances!

Payroll Software and MICR Ink Check Printing: What They Can Do for You

MICR stands for “Magnetic Ink Character Recognition” and is a special kind of ink that can be detected by check processing machines. Some payroll software systems offer the ability to print checks on blank check stock, using MICR ink. This feature can benefit some businesses greatly and make payroll processing much easier. Here are some of the ways printing your checks on blank check stock with MICR ink can help you and your business.

Various check designs, various companies.

If you run the payroll for multiple companies, the MICR printing option could save you some serious time and frustration. Instead of having to load up the correct check paper for each separate company, use the MICR option and print checks with different designs onto the same blank check stock. This can also save you money if suspect there will be an address change or other information revision to your check stock. Instead of throwing out the old stock, you will be able to simply change the design and print onto your blank check paper. Using the MICR option allows you to print checks using multiple bank accounts too, especially helpful in the case of doing the payroll for separate companies.

Print check signature.

Another benefit of MICR printing is the ability to print a signature on file right onto your paychecks, especially helpful if the signing party is away or cannot sign the checks. Payroll software will typically require you to set up a security policy for each signature, so that only users who are given permission will have access to print checks with them. This is especially important, since the printing of checks would typically be allowed to only a very few people.
