1. Why is the selection process in choosing accounting software so important? Because you want the software to match solutions to your business’s needs and the fact that the software is expensive and time consuming to install and train staff in the use of. You do not want to just choose a package and load it to find out that it doesn’t do what you expect or want it to do because then you have just wasted previous staff hours on a product you cannot use. 2. List and describe the recommended steps for selecting accounting software? Establish a technology advisory committee. This committee will oversee the whole project from choosing the product to final implementation. Try keeping the team small it is suggested that it be made up of 5 to 7 members from each department or division within the company so the needs of every part of the company are considered. Large companies should create subcommittees that report to the main TAC. Prepare a needs analysis from the needs analysis and flowcharts from each division of the company.
