Of course, business executives – and FDs – are working hard to “keep up”. They are also working hard to keep up with changing markets, volatile currencies, fresh ways to motivate employees, ridiculously complicated tax legislation and new measures of financial performance. But the most difficult part of changing technology isn’t the change itself: it’s the fact that, sooner or later, you have to make a decision and then, thereafter, live with that decision and make it work as your business imperatives change. The wrong decision can make it feel as though time has stopped while, all around you, the rest of the world carries on and progresses. KPMG Management Consulting and Financial Director know just how important and how difficult the decision-making process is. The tables and articles in this supplement and in the KPMG Financial Software Directory 1998* have been specifically designed to assist in this process by providing a wealth of data and some ‘plain English’ analysis to highlight the critical business issues. In the following pages, you can find extracts of these tables which provide a brief overview of most of the accounting software packages currently available in the UK.
