Are you frustrated with your company’s Financial Software? Then this text is for you! Generally, business growth is an admirable goal to achieve. When companies change, expand, and grow more complex over the years, most small and mid-sized businesses are reaching a crossroads: legacy software or – behold! – manual accounting and financial processing can’t keep up anymore and the looming decision of adapting a new financial management platform. But which one is right for you?
Operation visibility and real time cashflow management are critical for any organization, but they’re even more crucial for small to mid-sized businesses because they can have a critical influence on daily operation efficiency, executive strategies, and thus healthy growth and stability in the future.
If you are a fast-evolving company anywhere from $2M-$50M in annual revenue, you have to be aware of the implications of insufficient financial management tools. A lack of real-time visibility or hours wasted on manual processing will cost you more than just money: if your budgeting and financials department is limited by its software platform, it’ll get only worse a year or two down the road.
Unleash your Finance Team’s full potential
It’s no surprise that inadequate business management tools can hold your finance team back. While QuickBooks has – for a reason – become the industry standard and first pick for many a small business and can be a solid fit as a “starter platform,” in many cases it turns into the bane of any finance team’s existence once they hit rapid growth stage.
Breaking the cycle by switching to a different platform saves costs, opens up new streams of revenue, and allows your team to “breathe.” An upgrade to a more powerful platform can alleviate your finance team’s pain and set up your business with the proper systems to support a healthy and stable growth.
Outgrowing QuickBooks? It’s Time to Upgrade
What are the signs that it’s time to upgrade to a new system? There are a range of indicating factors: friction in your daily operations and complaints from team members about internal problems are the obvious ones. Less visible pointers could be a low client retention rate (e.g., as a result of too complicated a transaction process or long waiting times), as well as unexpectedly high overhead costs in the financial department or in customer service.
A switch from QuickBooks to NetSuite helps companies in a rapid growth phase alleviate business pressures by:
- Empowering your team through real-time visibility: Today’s accounting world requires consolidated views and real-time reporting to ensure your business is thriving. With regulations tightening every day, it is imperative that your business has up-to-date information consistently available.
- Eliminating manual processes: If your people find themselves spending much of their day manually entering sales orders, invoices, or budgets, it is time to seriously look into an upgrade.
- Spending less time thinking about technology: Your company’s software should be flexible enough to adapt to your changing business; your team shouldn’t have to spend hours thinking about how a new layer of business will fit with your current platform. An adaptable solution unlocks possibilities for your team instead of limiting them.
