Every growing organization reaches a tipping point where the tools and processes that supported their initial growth begin to hinder their ability to operate efficiently. When your business begins to diversify and grow in complexity, you need more than basic bookkeeping and backward looking reporting. You need a complete business management solution that will automate financial processes, provide management and executives with timely information, eliminate errors, reduce risk and fraud, offer advanced functionality to address other business requirements, integrate with other business systems, and enable growth. If you’d like to learn more about moving from QuickBooks to ERP, check out our whitepaper titled “QuickBooks to ERP” or our “Have You Outgrown QuickBooks?” assessment tool.
To drive and sustain growth, businesses need to equip their people with the information and tools they need to work more efficiently and improve business performance. At a certain point, growing companies should consider replacing QuickBooks with a business management solution that is capable of integrating and supporting all of the various business functions and processes. This business management solution is commonly referred to as ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning).
