WellMagic compared to accounting software

WellMagic was designed to pick up where most accounting packages leave off.  Good accounting software is essential for a well-run business but it is not enough by itself.  Over-the-Counter accounting software commonly used in the ground water industry was designed for any business.  As such, it cannot begin to compare with a system set up specifically for your industry.  Take a look at this comparison of features between WellMagic and other accounting systems to see what you are missing without WellMagic.
