Accounting software

Accounting software is a type of general-purpose software that helps companies automate their accounting functions. The main modules of an accounting system are General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Account Receivable, and Fixed Assets. These can be interfaced with other financial products, such as payroll, budgeting, and inventory management software, to produce an integrated accounting package.
