QuickBooks is probably the most popular small business accounting/management software. It can track all your business expenses and income and give you a clear picture of where your business is going. QuickBooks includes modules like inventory management, payroll management, vendor management, invoices management. I love the company snapshot screen where you can see everything about your company in just a single screen.
QuickBooks is not only for experienced accountants, it can be used by absolute novice management users who want to manage their businesses but can’t afford services of a dedicated accountant. The start screen gives a very good overview of what you have to do in order to enter data. For example, after creating and sending an invoice, the next logical step is to receive the payments and then record the deposits. All this is done using the homepage which arranges everything in a logical manner. Here’s the screenshot of the homepage of my company created in QuickBooks:
