Financial Reporter Showdown! FR vs. FRS
The Sage 300 Financial Reporter (FR) has a loyal following which is not surprising as it’s actually one of the most powerful financial reporters in the market. But it also has some drawbacks, not least of which is that it doesn’t work with Sage 300c. But does Dingosoft’s FRS have what it takes to be a viable FR successor?
