We are looking for a small business accounting program that can do
everything we need. No program I have seen so far can do everythign
Can anyone make a custom accoutning program for us? Contact
email@example.com if you can. Thanks.
Probably, without knowing what your needs are, not.
Have you looked at the retail software? Peachtree and QuickBooks?
What things do you need it to do above and beyond that comes from the box?
Have you researched the secondary market for add-ons for both programs?
And it's highly likely that you'll not find any one software that can "do
everything you need". Most retail software is written for the "generic"
user and while often quite adaptable to many users, lacks some specific
needs of some businesses. Short of having code written from scratch, you
may end up with different programs to meet the different needs you have.
One source for you to research would be any local, regional or national
trade groups in your industry that may be able to tell you what a majority
of their members (in the same business as you) use for software. A plus is
they may have a deal struck with the vendor for "member" discounts.

The problem is no accounting software you review can do "everything",
no matter how it's defined. You could get someone to customize an
open source accounting package but the upfront and recurring annual
costs would be prohibitive. Remember, even in small companies this
has to include or work with payroll, general ledger, tax reports,
etc. Your best bet is to look at downloading trial sample programs
for the major brands - Quickbooks, Peachtree, MYOB, etc. and if a
feature you really want is missing talk to a knowledgeable accounting
person about add-on's or alternatives.
