PENSACOLA, Fla., Nov. 5, 2004 -- Today, Best Software announced a partnership with e-Analytics Portal that brings powerful business intelligence capabilities to firms using CPAPractice Manager. Using the e-Analytics Portal, firms using CPAPractice Manager can quickly view and drill into their practice management data on-screen, affording them better information to help run their practices.

Accounting software packages generally offer a variety of reporting methods, all of which provide the accountant with valuable information, including tools such as standard reports, wizards, and report writers.
