Finds Software Evaluations Valuable

BY LESLY VAN DAME

Contrary to Edward Gillman's views regarding "Guide to Accounting Software" (JofA, Mar.98), expressed in his letter to the editor (JofA, Sept.98), I greatly appreciate the Journal of Accountancy's approach to evaluating commercial products. I have never had the impression that there is any bias in the presentation for or against any of the software vendors.

In my opinion, software evaluation is one of the Journal's most valuable services, and I support continuing the reports.
