Sure with QuickBooks, you’ve gone beyond a pen and paper to automate processes and better manage your business. Although the familiar clicking of keyboards may sound productive, disparate software programs reduces the productivity of your people and limits insight into overall business operations.
Growing Pain #9: Your Most Valuable Asset is Not Living Up to its Potential
Your business needs people and your people need powerful tools. If you’re using your most valuable asset, your employees, to enter and reenter data into QuickBooks and other business software programs, then you could be losing money in more ways than you know. Redundant data entry not only takes time, it can lead to mistakes and bad data. You know you’ve outgrown QuickBooks when your team is handling data multiple times and taking more steps than necessary to get through their everyday tasks. Help your team work smarter, not harder. Imagine handling everything from financials, project and services management, to human resources and payroll in one robust solution. This comprehensive insight will connect your team and strengthen communication which is stifled by disparate software programs. An integrated solution will reduce repetitive data entry and protect data integrity, saving time and improving productivity. Your people will also be happier when they can spend their time making business decisions instead of mindlessly entering data over and over again.
That’s where a Microsoft Dynamics business solution come in. The role-tailored experience of Microsoft Dynamics AX gives your people access to information- the right information. And when your people can get their hands on data specific to their day-to-day jobs, they can be even more productive at the office, at home, or on the road. According to the Telework Research Network, 67% of employers have reported increased productivity due to telecommuters. What makes it even better? It’s the fact that Microsoft Dynamics works like and with the Microsoft Office productivity tools they already use. So your team can get started quickly and become efficient even faster.
Ron Wollner, President, Computer Data Source says, “We quadrupled our business without adding people to the finance and IT departments.” He continues, “Much of the credit for that goes to our use of Microsoft Dynamics.”
