In the Office Accounting software, eBay business owners can select products from inventories, list items for sale, view the status of listings, and download the results of sales transactions and related fees directly from eBay. Meanwhile, PayPal users can use online invoicing and accept payment via e-mail or direct credit-card payments, and Equifax users can monitor the credit-worthiness of their customers and vendors.
Washington Post (dead link) reviews Microsoft Office Accounting 2007 Beta and concludes that “Microsoft Office Accounting looks slick, with an informative company dashboard that summarizes business financial performance and to-dos. In general, the software narrows but does not eliminate the lead held by its leading small-business competitors, such as Sage’s Peachtree. Despite enhancements in the latest versions of QuickBooks and Peachtree , Office Accounting still offers the best integration with Microsoft Office applications. One caveat: I had to try three times before I successfully installed the beta, and it operates a tad sluggishly. I therefore don’t recommend it for production use.”
