Business and its accounting software solution must go hand in hand. An accounting software, which is not up to date or not of a quality suite, may prove to be a barrier for the business to flourish. If you’ve built your business on QuickBooks, you know it’s a great entry-level accounting solution. As your business flourishes, however, QuickBooks may not be able to keep up. There are telltale signs you’ve hit your limits with your current systems and when those start to occur, its likely your future growth will be stifled until you step up to a more comprehensive business management solution.
We have compiled a list of growing pains that businesses like yours are facing when outgrowing QuickBooks. In this blog series, we will address some of those common growing pains and how a business solution, with the help of Microsoft Dynamics AX, goes beyond the entry level accounting software to keep you on the path of growth.
Growing Pain #1: Rubber Bands and Sticky Notes Are Keeping You Up at Night!
As your business develops, your financial data becomes more complex to collect and analyze, your supply chain isn’t the calibrated machine it used to be, and the many workarounds you and your team have put in place are starting to make you worried you won’t be able to keep up. When manual data entry continues to rise, countless spreadsheets aren’t giving you the perceptivity you need to make good decisions, and your people are reactive instead of proactive, it may be time to look to the future. When you find yourself using so many creative workarounds that managing your businesses seems more challenging and time consuming than it should be, it may be time to step up to a business management solution that is ready for the next stage of your development. Comprehensive doesn’t have to mean complex.
Microsoft Dynamics AX is a complete, yet easy to use solution to help manage your entire business from financials, people, supply chain and customer relationship management, and it provides powerful business intelligence right from the start.
Travis Perkins, Director of IT for EMIT Technologies says, “We were relying on QuickBooks for basic accounting, but we needed to address long-term goals of our developing business and knew we would need a more robust solution that handled inventory management and manufacturing as well.” He continues, “With Microsoft Dynamics AX, we’ve evolved from managing each order individually as a one-off job, to a true manufacturing environment where we have greater insight and control while having uniform processes in place across the company.”
Many business organizations have outgrown their outdated accounting software and have turned to Microsoft Dynamics AX to support the next phase of their business.
