Does Peachtree Accounting need to be upgraded to "Quantum"

wukovits asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-15
My client uses Peachtree Accounting software.  They have 4 users and their database size is 250MB.  Recently, a salesperson from Peachtree contacted them about upgrading to Peachtree Accounting Quantum, which uses a SQL backend.  Evidently, they don't recommend using a database size over 100MB with Peachtree standard and it only supports up to five users.  The user issue isn't a big deal (they don't plan on having anyone else use it) but the database issue concerned me.

Does anyone have any experience with either product and whether the need to upgrade is crucial to the program's performance?  Any thoughts or input will be greatly appreciated.
