I don¹t know that getting a comparison of all these vendors will do
anything for you as each one will have something that tops each other.
What I¹ve always done is put my list together of features that I need to
run my business and see where each one of the vendors sits after that.
You can typically weed out a good % by that first set of questions.  We
also will give some points to vendors we already deal with and staff is
already familiar with using, as training can be a big % of cost.
