More and more small and midsized businesses opt for an on-demand software because of the affordability, security, and convenience. But that doesn’t automatically mean on-demand is right for your business.   Here's some information that might help you make the choice that best suits your budget, internal resources, and business model.

The functionality of Sage Accpac Online solutions and their boxed counterparts is virtually identical, so your choice of deployment mode will rely largely on other factors. Some of these factors are covered in the comparison chart below.

Still, there's no magic formula that can apply to every business. It's always a good idea to consult with a specialist who can help you sort through your options and ultimately choose the solution that can help your business be the most efficient, productive, and profitable.
