Another View of Software


The use of specific brand names in Guide to Accounting Software (JofA, Mar.98, page 44) gives the appearance of loss of independence and objectivity. I think the profession would have been better served had the authors just explained the tests and criteria used to form their opinions. Readers could then have used them to make their own judgments.
