Accounting Software - Recent Price Trend

In the three years to 2018, the price of accounting software has grown at an estimated annualized rate of 1.8%, which has negatively impacted buyer power. However, software price growth during the past three years has exhibited a low level of volatility. Low price volatility aids buyers by reducing the likelihood of significant fluctuations in prices. As such, low price volatility makes it easier.

Accounting Software - Total Cost of Ownership

The total cost of ownership for accounting software is high in comparison to the benchmark price, indicating that buyers incur significant direct and indirect costs throughout the useful life of accounting software (about three to 10 years). However, ownership costs vary significantly depending upon the size of the buyer, depth of functionality required, hardware and level of maintenance, support.
