- Ease of Use:
This accounting software is not the easiest to configure. The trial version we saw come up with some of the samples that have been configured so that we can run reports and so on. However, we see that not every company has the same control options panel. What we learned is that you have to configure features and many features are really needed to run the setup wizard. After the initial configuration, button or icon for features that will appear in the control panel. We found this confusing and sometimes witches will not even run. Someone who is new to accounting software may have trouble getting their corporate accounts set up the way they want with automatic payroll, project management and automatic deposits. We recommend that you get help when first setting up the software, which is a good idea no matter what accounting software you choose to use.

Free support including resource centers and a comprehensive help section embedded in their software for quick access.

- Accounts receivable:
Accounting Peachtree Complete sage accounts receivable section in their Customers and Sales modules. Through this panel you can manage your customer, add inventory, set the sales tax, and calculate the financial burden. You can also save money and do credit and back with ease. In terms of reporting, you can save time by running one of the 50 pre-defined reports.
Accounts payable section Peachtree is strong but simple, you can manage your vendor, write a check, bill, blank checks and credit process and return. You can not, however, create custom checks per vendor, you can only make global changes that affect the layout and color of all checks.
Sage Peachtree Complete Accounting equipped with payroll, although we have to consult the help file many times to figure it out. In the employee’s duties and payroll section to a company we only see three buttons: employees, users and 1099s. When we click on one of the employee’s name indicates their general information and additional benefits but no tabs or obvious way to change their benefits or pay. After consulting with the help page a couple of times we found that you have to run the payroll set up wizard to add information on the benefits initially, we found this frustrating. To add to our frustration, running Windows 7 we could not get a salary wizard to run.
In terms of inventory, accounting software is not just about everything we were looking for, including stock location tracking, re-order number, preferred vendors and more. It can also sort by the UPC or SKU, which is required if you are using a scanner and UPC barcode to identify the shares. One feature that we would have liked to see is the ability to add images to a file share.
With Peachtree you can write a check, void checks, make deposits and reconcile accounts. To arrange direct deposit you must use PeachSync and like most programs, direct deposit services require a subscription.
- Time Billing:
In this section you can create quotes a fee, weekly and daily time tickets, and sales invoices. However, such a tool payroll took a bit to find out.
- Job Costing:
Looking for a job or a part of the project in Peachtree Complete Accounting Sage difficult at first. We opened the company’s demo and some will offer the section and some will not. What we learned is that you have to prepare parts before selection will even appear in the main menu, which is good in terms of not cluttering your screen with icons unused, but not so good when you’re trying to figure out how to even configure or adjust parts the.
- General ledger:
Peachtree has a very good selection General Ledger Entry. You can change the accounting period, making ledger entries, and register an account. There were seven reports available in this section.
