Choosing your accounting practice management software


Trent McLaren, head of accounting and strategic partnerships at Practice Ignition in Australia, says accounting practice management software is the one topic that can go 100 different ways depending on who you ask. “Let’s be honest – it’s a little messy and we’re all a little divided on what ‘practice management’ should be.”

McLaren says practice management is where you manage your clients and where you produce, collaborate and track the progress of both upcoming and past work. That can include: proposals, payment processing, workflow management, sales enablement, client communication, reporting and more.

He says accounting practice management software is any software to manage the back-office of your accounting practice.

In this article, he discusses the current best accounting practice management software in his view, and in no particular order of preference, as the choice of software will depend on the size and needs of accounting firms.

These include: Practice Ignition, Xero Practice Manager, Karbon, Aero Workflow, QuickBooks Online Accountant, Jetpack Workflow, CCH iFirm, Pascal Workflow, Thomson Reuters Onvio, Canopy, and Senta.
