Acctivate

This software is not user-friendly at all. Unless you have a solid background in computers or IT, you can muddle through it. It does have a great search engine and has several options for creating reports.

MicroBiz

Suitable for small and mid sized retail businesses. Many features to automate operations (bar code scanning throughout application, auto generate POS based on mix/max, stock look-up).May not be ideal for large retail stores. Lacks integrations with ERP systems such as SAP or Oracle. Missing some specialty features such as serialized inventory.

MicroBiz

Alternatives Considered

Acctivate

Acctivate is at the bottom of the list. It is old and outdated.
Michael Searles | TrustRadius Reviewer

MicroBiz

It was close but we just liked some of the features in microbiz better. Plus it was cheaper

Return on Investment

Acctivate

  • Very slow
  • Outdated
  • Hard to maintain
Michael Searles | TrustRadius Reviewer

MicroBiz

  • Really amazing value for the monthly fees. Less expensive than other serious cloud POS applications
  • Synch with QBO allows us to save time manually entering financial data into our accounting system
  • Bar code scanning in both the front end and back end saves time and money
