When Choosing Bookkeeping Programs

When Choosing Bookkeeping Programs
My organization recently decided to​ update its bookkeeping programs .​
Though it​ will probably improve efficiency in​ the​ long term,​ but presently,​ it​ puts me,​ as​ the​ office manager in​ an​ uncomfortable position.
Over the​ years,​ the​ firm have tried several bookkeeping programs,​ but finally settled on​ Quickbooks,​ which frankly speaking,​ I​ am very indifferent to,​ but have gotten so used to​ it​ in​ the​ last few years .​
We probably won't know the​ fellow that took the​ decision to​ adopt a​ new bookkeeping program; nevertheless it​ was a​ wrong decision.
There was nothing wrong in​ the​ existing bookkeeping program,​ and setting up a​ new one was created new problems,​ that has was never envisaged .​
First,​ everything had to​ be recorded to​ the​ new bookkeeping programs,​ and for this task,​ the​ boss hired a​ computer expert,​ who also happened to​ be his son.
The task involved writing a​ macro that will convert all of​ the​ files from the​ old bookkeeping programs into the​ new one,​ and unfortunately,​ the​ project failed- just like everything the​ boss and his family do,​ on​ top of​ this is​ the​ problem of​ lack of​ compatibility between the​ QuickBooks and the​ new bookkeeping programs,​ which was a​ kind of​ general public access thing that was obviously produced by Linux nerds in​ their spare time .​
Though it​ is​ very stable and well coded,​ it​ is​ just not a​ user friendly interface.
Of course I​ bore the​ brunt of​ the​ whole thing,​ so I​ had to​ learn how to​ operate this graphics free,​ all text interface,​ before entering the​ old bookkeeping program data .​
Of course the​ new program is​ more stable,​ and perhaps faster,​ but the​ point is​ it​ is​ boring and takes a​ longer period to​ learn.
Even now that I​ have a​ full grasp of​ it,​ I​ still prefer one of​ the​ bookkeeping programs where I​ can click on​ a​ few icons and not bother about keyboard shortcuts.
I resent this new program because I​ will have to​ use it​ all day,​ so I​ think I​ deserve something pleasant to​ work and interact with.
But it​ seems no one is​ interested in​ that,​ as​ long as​ it​ is​ free,​ fast,​ and occupies less hard disk space,​ then it​ will do just fine.
