Table of Contents
The capstone project “Accounting Management System” will streamline the process of tracking and keeping financial records of a company. The said project will manage the records of expenses, invoices and other financial transactions of the company.
Currently, many companies uses a manually-aided system in managing their financial transactions and records. The manual method of accounting is prone to human errors and will not let the company effectively assess their financial situation. Records of expenses and invoices may not be accurate and reliable due to possible human errors especially in the manual calculation of digits. The manual process is thought to be inefficient and ineffective in preparing prompt financial reports. Organizations are in need of an automated system that will assist them to efficiently manage their overall financial activities.
The researchers of the study proposed an automated accounting management system in order to resolve the aforementioned issues encountered in the manual method. The proposed system will allow electronic accounting management where records of financial transactions will be processed electronically. The said project will keep the financial records and transactions accurate, reliable, safe and secure. The proposed system will eliminate the paper works and other difficulties encountered in the manual process. The system will fully aid the process of financial transactions and record keeping in the company.

Accounting Management is vital
for the whole operation and performance of the company. Managing financial transactions and records is critical for every company which requires a thorough process to avoid significant errors that will affect the company’s financial situation. The project is conducted to assess the manual method of managing financial activities in a company. The researchers concluded that the current method is not enough to fully optimize financial activities of the company which leave rooms for errors.
The researchers proposed an automated accounting management system that will replace the manual system. The result of the study showed that the developed accounting management system met the needs and requirements of the respondents and the intended users. Therefore, the researchers concluded that the implementation of the developed system will significantly help companies in managing and tracking the records of their financial transactions. The system will eliminate all the problems encountered in the manual method which will help the companies or organization better improve their business operations.
The implementation of the Accounting Management System is highly recommended by the researchers. The researchers suggest that companies should integrate the use of the system in managing their financial transactions and records. The system is highly recommended for its efficiency and reliability that can be offered to the company’s finance department. The researchers of the project suggest that the intended users should have enough knowledge on how the developed system is going to work.
The researchers of the project recommend the following:
- Companies should consider using the system in managing their expenses, invoices and other financial records.
