QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise offers industry-focused editions with tools and reporting tailored to specific business needs, enhancing customization.
Sage Intacct is best for SMBs (50-200 employees) and mid-market companies (200-1,000 employees). It’s highly popular in the professional services, nonprofit, retail, and healthcare industries.
