To those produced in a monopolistic industry, compared to state-owned enterprises, private enterprises in a competitive industry, among its information technology needs should be more strongly; and financial management is the soul, and therefore financial information is even more important in the weight. But status quo is not the case. Chinese private enterprises in general the construction of financial information is not only lagging behind foreign companies, but is also a disadvantage in the country. Lack of financial information of private enterprises mainly as follows: First, lack of information technology professionals; Second, standardized financial management is not high, the management system, the establishment of the production process, are still in the comb stage, so they want the help of management software, to assist them to improve business management deficiencies; and the third is biased understanding of financial information, many people tend to believe that private enterprise is responsible for "financial activities with computers to deal with the financial information is to achieve" a lot of company's finance department with a good computer equipment.

Private enterprise financial information of these deficiencies led to a lot of private SMEs in the selection of financial information on a fatal error, thus delaying the construction of private enterprise information footsteps, and thus how to select a suitable private financial characteristics of SMEs is critical to the software .

Five confusion, the software how to meet current and future business needs change?

Six confusion, the software choose the wrong consequences?

Faced with all these confusing selection, to form a selection team to develop a scientific and rational selection process and strategy is necessary.

Third, the software selection of the preparation strategy

The preparatory work is the basis for the software selection process, including the establishment of the preparatory group, detailed needs analysis and market research, etc., preparation of tender documents, evaluation and scoring system, and development of key areas, many companies have done quite hastily on this link, lead to low success rate information.

(A) of the selection panel set up

Organization of a lean, efficient software selection team, financial software for the correct choice is very important. Selection of team members should be business decision-making, and includes the business sector, financial sector and the IT sector stakeholders. Selection of team leader in which the choice is particularly critical. Business leaders and technology-based leader in software selection will reflect their different styles.

To meet the business needs and capabilities within the acceptable range, selected is the right software and vendor selection. Therefore, a clear understanding of business requirements and evaluation capacity of enterprises can afford to become a key factor in the success of selection.

1, analysis of financial processes, the demand for a comprehensive

In the selection of financial software, the company should be based on the existing financial processes, after the initial planning of computerized accounting financial processes, and as a basis, the financial software make high, middle and lower overall demand.

If each must be met, not met each of the last to become not only the efficiency is not obvious, usually on the line will also affect the time to form a fragmented situation. Therefore, the effective filtering and integration needs, it becomes very important.

3, ability to assess, identify needs

Imports of financial software technology is relatively mature, but the cost is high, many small and medium enterprises can not afford to buy or purchase some of the features. Moreover, the software more foreign words and new words, translation is also different, and even use some of the latest information in English only, to our managers set a high barrier to entry, and thus more suitable choice of private small and medium enterprises Domestic financial software.

3 Comparison of common software and industry software

The current generic market's a lot of financial management software, the software in the function, operation, interface and other areas are relatively simple and flexible, for Invoicing, simple cost and financial management also has convenient place, and such software function in the system has been basically stable, mature. However, the software often to meet the special needs of specific industries is not very place, if the specificity of a strong business sector, and only select the software industry.
