New Office Accounting 2007 article on Yahoo.com

I'm not sure how I missed this article, but it talks about how both Intuit and Microsoft are embracing online services directly in their accounting applications. The article takes a few shots at Intuit and praises Microsoft for it's efforts:

First, the shot at Intuit:
But Intuit's ballyhooed Google alliance was underwhelming at best. It boiled down to a single icon called MARKETING TOOLS just below the Items and Services link on the main QuickBooks page. ... But why do I need Intuit? All these Google tools are available free without QuickBooks.
Now, some of the praise for Microsoft:

I also give Microsoft the edge for overall feel and ease of use, if only because Microsoft Accounting runs better in the sexy new Microsoft Vista environment. QuickBooks also works in Vista, but Intuit's code lacks that intimate connection to Microsoft Office. Features such as word processing and customer-management tools are not as slickly integrated.

If you run an information-based business like mine, you'll love Microsoft Accounting's letter and spreadsheet features. Contact and financial data travel instantly into both Word and Excel documents. Reports, invoices, and pay-me-right-now-sucka letters are a breeze. Sure, I can get QuickBooks to do the same stuff, but it takes more time. And frankly, it's just not as cool.

Now to the Web. Microsoft flatly - and I mean flatly - wins the online-services battle. The gnomes of Redmond have developed a snazzy Web interface called Marketing Services. It includes a direct link to eBay that automatically updates your inventory balances. You'll also find online account-status information and even links to PayPal, credit card transactions and other features.

QuickBooks has similar capabilities, if we generously assume that Google's embryonic Base service is competitive with eBay. But Microsoft's Marketing Services environment is leagues ahead of the Marketing Tools for QuickBooks page, which feels as if it were tossed together in a few hours by a heavily caffeinated Google intern.

Wow. The author either really hates Intuit, or genuinely likes using the Microsoft product. Truth be told, he's echoing what I've been saying all along. The integration in the Microsoft product is just really, really good.

Hi,
Would it be possible to review the Quickbooks Dashboard and share your opinion

I think this would be a very useful tool for Quickbook users and can save them lot of time from running various reports

Similar dashboard can be created using Microsoft Accounting package.

HYIP(High Yield Investment Program) is a investment program that anyone can join online and deposit fund, in return the member will earn high interest in short period of time. There are tons of HYIPs on the Internet and most of them are

closely monitored by HYIP rating sites and HYIP forums.You can find HYIPs from those HYIP rating and monitor sites. http://www.makecurrencyonline.com one of the biggest HYIP rating and monitor sites.
If you've searched around the Internet for different ways to make money online, there's no doubt that you've come across the term HYIP . You might have just skipped it and paid it no mind, but if you're reading this article right now,

you must have questioned what the term encompasses. HYIP stands for High Yield Investment Programs , which covers all programs, offline and online , that are used to invest money to receive a higher yield than you would normally get at a

bank . But that doesn't necessarily mean that it's a safe and solid investment. Look to HYIPs as more like gambling than an investment , and only use money that you can afford to lose.

HYIP(High Yield Investment Program) is a investment program that anyone can join online and deposit fund, in return the member will earn high interest in short period of time. There are tons of HYIPs on the Internet and most of them are closely monitored by HYIP rating sites and HYIP forums.
You can find HYIPs from those HYIP rating and monitor sites. makecurrencyonline.com
and hyipfunding.com are the best hyip rating and monitor sites. They provide a long list of HYIPs with latest comments, rating and payment status on each HYIP. If you plan to join HYIPs, invest only the amount you afford to lose because your principle and profit aren’t guaranteed. Also you will need an Liberty reserve a/c to deposit fund and receive interest & return. What is the Liberty Reserve?
http://libertyreserve-investment-hyip.blogspot.com/2009/09/what-is-liberty-reserve.html
Below are steps that can help you get started to invest in HYIP:
Step 1
Open an Liberty reserve a/c at http://www.libertyreserve.com You will find detailed
instructions on how to fund your Liberty reserve a/c from libertyreserve.com
Step 2
Visit makecurrencyonline.com and hyipfunding.com and find the HYIPs that interest you. Read the comments and ratings of each HYIP to make sure they are paying to members before you deposit fund to the HYIPs programs you selected. To lower your risk you must diversify your investments into several HYIPs (you may start off with HYIPs).
Step 3
Just waiting your payment from your deposited hyips. If a HYIP's website down, there could be 2 possiblility:
1) They are experiencing technical, IT problems or security issues which wil be back online later usually.
2) They have closed down and you lose money or you still earn some money overall.
Again high return means high risk. So only invest the amount you afford to lose.

I have been using the Microsoft software and I am satisfied with it. More than its accounting services, I decided to acquire additional software that will eventually promote and enhance my business. I have been using sage business software and sage crm solutions for two years and it has given positive results. These has been the addition to the new business, and I know that this will eventually create its own noise.

I've been curious about these accounting software. I've been looking for one that's very easy to use and is customizable. As much as possible, I would like to give all of the top choices for an accounting software. Microsoft Office Accounting, Quickbooks and Peachtree Quantum, to name a few.

According to some of my friends who have tried out Peachtree Quantum 2011, the newest version of the Peachtree Quantum series, it has all the features I'm looking for.

Anyway, thanks for sharing the article about Office Accounting!
