Is Your Company Outgrowing QuickBooks?

Technology has helped to transform the world around us, supporting businesses in becoming more streamlined and efficient. When it comes to accounting, QuickBooks by Intuit has been one of the most popular software providers for startups and small businesses.

However, while this has helped thousands of organizations to transform their accounting, many find that QuickBooks does have its limitations, primarily the lack of flexibility and scalability to continue to meet the demands of a growing business.

What is a growing business?

When you hear the term ‘growing business,’ the first things that will likely spring to mind are rising profits or an expanding team. However, that is not always the case. Business growth could mean adapting the services and products on offer to meet the ever-changing demands of the modern consumer. It could also mean purchasing new equipment or working to ensure your organization meets new regulatory compliance.

Whatever it might be, growth means change, and while QuickBooks has helped countless small and medium-sized businesses, they can quickly run into various limitations as the basic features no longer meet their requirements. When this happens, it forces these businesses to make the switch to a more comprehensive business management and accounting solution.

Signs you might be outgrowing QuickBooks

If your business is changing and expanding, then you might start to notice signs that your current business management solutions are no longer working as effectively as they once were. There are many signs to look out for which indicate that your operations might have outgrown the capabilities that QuickBooks provide, including:

  • Finding that you have to manually enter an increasing amount of data into your systems.
  • Noticing that you are managing more of your inventory outside of QuickBooks on spreadsheets or via add-ons.
  • Paying for multiple systems or solutions to manage everything.
  • Regularly needing to transfer information from one application or system to another in order to stay up to date.
  • No longer having the flexibility to manage your inventory across your warehouses or easily update things such as prices or inventory counts.
  • Not being able to customize your quotes or manage shipments and backorders as well.

Time for the next step?

The Top Three Pains That Your Current Accounting Software Is Causing Your Business

There can be no denying that technology has transformed the world we live in. From effortlessly communicating with clients to automating time-consuming tasks, businesses have never been more efficient. However, when it comes to accounting software, certain options on the market are still lacking in certain areas.

Three of the most common pain points that finance teams find include:

Tracking inventory

One of the most common areas that frustrate businesses is the inability to clearly track their inventory. Accounting software often lacks the ability to clearly record serial numbers, lot number tracking and knowing when you need to reorder more inventory. A very common issue that arises with businesses looking for new software, is the cost of over-stocking warehouses with inventory they do not need.

Real-time data

While technology has helped to automate many aspects of our work, a lack of real-time and up-to-date data can be a major pain point when it comes to finding the right accounting software for your business.

User accountability and permissions

In this fast-paced world, teams are often changing, and remote working is only serving to make things more challenging. A lack of ability to assign permissions or track accountability will only make things more complex.
