What should you be looking out for when comparing accounting software like QuickBooks and Sage ERP software? For starters, licensing costs (how much is this stuff going to cost me?). Depending on the size of your company, you may be interested in hosting your software on-premise or in the cloud. Most smaller companies (100 employees or less) choose to go with cloud-based ERP software, while smaller companies tend to host accounting software (QuickBooks Enterprise) on-premise (self-hosted).

To get all the same ERP software features with QuickBooks requires that you pay for add-ons. Depending on how many you get, QuickBooks Enterprise can still be cheaper than Sage 100, but Sage has even more options no matter what you add to Enterprise.
