What features do you wish your accounting software had?

I'm looking for people to share their experiences with systems like Drake, ProSeries, Prosystem fx, Lacerte, etc. I have seen smaller threads for some products, but I'm looking at this from a product feature point of view like "if we could build our own system based on all the frustration and must-haves we've experienced, what would that look like?"

I may actually build mobile apps as workarounds to some of these issues, and if so I'll distribute them for free if you're interested in the discussion. Or maybe I'll just send people gift cards or something if they can help me wrap my head around this space lol - seriously though, I will. Post a reply!

The answer will vary based on industry, business model etc. It's almost never ending unless you identify a target audience for your intended product.
Also, anonymous questions don't normally get much interest. People respond better if you identify yourself.

I would be looking for features like billing, stock management, GST ready, Customized Reports and one feature that I liked from this billing software( ) that is Barcode Printing.
