Exchequer accounts system

Exchequer accounts system

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

The company I work for uses Sage Line 50 (and I like it, so please no comments re this!). But I have no knowledge of Exchequer or how it works. I am soon to be involved in interviews for my assistant, one of whom was using this package. So it would be useful for me to gain at least a basic idea of how the package works and whether knowledge of this package can be relatively easily transferred to Line 50; for example, is there an editable Chart of Accounts and are the Purchase and Sales order processes similiar, etc. Would there be anyone who could give me an objective and short short synopsis of the differences

Here's a review of Exchequer

I reviewed Exchequer for AccountingWEB a few years back.  Link here:

On the SOP and POP side, frankly Sage is pitiful when compared with Exchequer.

On the accounting side you can certainly change the accounts around;  Exchequer has won regular prizes as the mid-range system preferred by FD's.

So you may end up being a bit embarrassed when comparing the two packages.  But anyone who can master Exchequer will certainly be able to master Sage.   And Sage has its own charms:  if the basic requirement is fairly simple why spend a lot of money when Sage is perfectly up to the job?

Compared to Exchequer Sage is a toy!

We looked at Exchequer some years ago and it came a very close 2nd to Exact Globe.  Both of these are mid-range systems compared to which Sage is a toy.

If you employ this person you must be prepared for a great deal of hair pulling, ranting, and constant observations that 'if we had Exchequer we could..........'!
