Accounting software is software used by businesses to track financial statements, cash flow, invoicing, bank accounts, and purchase orders. These systems occasionally come with specialized functionality for particular business sizes, the self-employed or freelancers, small businesses or enterprises. Because the accounting solution serves a critical business process, it's often a central component of an organization's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
