QuickBooks® Financial Software and Software as a Service is Designed for Small Business REALTOR® Enterprises
Some have discouraged Navica Streamline AMS prospects by falsely stating that QuickBooks® financial software is not a serious financial management solution for trade associations. The truth is that QuickBooks® financial management software was designed for "not for profit" and "for profit" small business enterprises.
The Small Business Association (SBA) has a section called Office of Size Standards that defines the appropriate size for a small business. The size standards are broken by NAICS industry classification and are based on two things (a) size standards in millions of dollars; and (b) by number of employees. In most industries, 500 is the maximum for small businesses, though there are industries where a business can have 1000-1500 employees yet still considered "small business"
Question - How many employees does your organization retain?
-If your answer is less than 500, you are most likely a small business enterprise. There is a QuickBooks® solutions for you, and we can help!
