I am now working for a very small business ( me and the boss) and we have an opportunity to upgrade our software systems. We are an all-Mac office and currently our accounting software in the PC version of quickbooks running on Virtual PC. Of course this is as slow as molasses and crashes ALL THE TIME. I'd like to upgrade to (at the very least) a Mac version of Quickbooks, but I'm also interested in hearing about any other software that people might reccomend for basic accounting needs.

Also, we are currently running our contracts (a couple of forms and a small database) on an outdated version of Microsoft Works. We definitely need to start over on this one. The boss is thinking FileMaker. I would really like to hear about any other software anyone would reccomend for this. We send out about 150 contracts a year and there are about 100 pieces of information that the database needs to keep track of for each contract from two sets of information (client and customer information, if that makes sense).
