With Railz Sandbox 2.0, you can generate a minimum of five years of accounting software data into your application to help fine-tune your reporting needs and ensure everything looks good before moving to production.

An accounting service can be connected to a business using Railz Sites™ or Railz Connect™. Please see here if you need insight on the difference between Railz Sites™ and Railz Connect™.
