Alterity, Inc.

Acctivate is best suited for very basic inventory needs. It syncs up well with Standalone Quickbooks and tracks physical inventory really well. I wouldn't recommend it if you need a complex suite for a larger business. Needs a lot of improvement. If you need a vendor, purchasing, PO system - I would suggest looking elsewhere.

MicroBiz LLC

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.

    Alterity, Inc.

    Acctivate is at the bottom of the list. It is old and outdated.
