Cougar Mountain's Value Proposition
Cougar Mountain Software has focused on accounting and related back office needs of small to mid-size businesses for nearly 30 years. We believe that accounting software is as much about the successful implementation of it into your daily operations as it is about the software's functionality. The value you receive with a Cougar Mountain Software purchase is a team of professionals who help you select, implement, and maintain your accounting solution for years to come.
Our motto: "Personal Service by Accounting and Business Experts.”
The fact is, core accounting functionality at the mid-market level is very similar across most of the leading software products. This is due to the maturity of a 30+ year industry.
Two notable differences of the DENALI software line is (1) SQL database back-end and (2) modular architecture. DENALI’s relational database supports millions of transactions without compromising space or performance. The fully integrateable modular architecture allows businesses to select the accounting and back office features it needs now and add to the system as future needs arise. This scalability provides an affordable entry point for new businesses, with the ability to grow to meet the requirements and transactions of a larger business.
Over the years our software has consistently rated highest in its class by CPA Practice Advisor and other major accounting software reviewers.
Cougar Mountain Software’s clear value proposition over competitive offerings actually goes beyond the software; it is our ability to better serve businesses that are looking for superior quality in service and support. Our clients tell us (many who have been with us for decades) that having an expert advocate on their side provides a much higher return on investment than a low-cost, off-the-shelf solution that uses an overseas support department.
In summary, here are the key differences you will find with our accounting software offering:
· A software that is scalable to support your organization as it grows.
· A sales team who understands business and accounting needs and will spend the time to help you select the right solution for your specific requirements.
· A support team that understands accounting as much as the software and works in the same office as the sales and development teams in a collaborative effort to meet your needs.
· A training team with advanced accounting and business knowledge.
· A custom modification team that can build unique requirements on demand.
We believe the true value of your accounting software purchase comes when you have successfully implemented the solution and your employees are happy and efficient using our software. Our price is competitive, and we contend that our commitment to your success is the best on the market.
