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( https://bit.ly/2lPIjEP ) that is Barcode Printing.

Choosing accounting software can be challenging. Each program includes a different set of features, and most offer multiple pricing plans to choose from, which also vary by feature, number of users, or other factors. You can usually choose from multiple plans, with paid packages typically ranging from $10 to $40 per month, though high-end programs cost much more. If you're willing to pay for the software annually rather than monthly, discounted rates are often available. http://www.hyperdrivesolutions.com/hdpos-smart/billing-software

Choosing accounting software can be challenging. Each program includes a different set of features, and most offer multiple pricing plans to choose from, which also vary by feature, number of users, or other factors. Here are three items to keep in mind when selecting accounting software for your business:

Costs. Would you prefer inexpensive, basic accountig software or an application that costs more but includes extra features?
Usability. How many users need to access the software? Do you prefer a cloud-based system you can access anywhere or desktop software? Do you need it to have a mobile app?
Features. What do you need the accounting software program to do? Do you need both accounts receivable and accounts payable tools? Which reports do you need it to generate? Do you need it to track inventory? Do you need it to include ancillary services, like time tracking, project management and payroll?
