3 Steps to Help You Choose the Right Accounting or ERP System


Email | Print

Choosing the right time and the right accounting or ERP system is a business decision that is not easy to make, especially in today’s economy.  The following three (3) steps may help make this process easier for your organization.

  1.  Understand your accounting needs.  Assess the managerial and financial needs that your organization has. What reports do you need? Do you, or should you, process payroll yourself? Do you carry inventory?
  2. Know your business’ industry requirements. Take into consideration the type of business you operate, what sectors you specialize in, and the compliance guidelines you must follow.  For example if you distribute goods, what standards or functionality do you need to have to help you meet state, federal, or even internal requirements?
  3. Talk to your CFO, accountant, accounting staff, and IT staff. Speaking with one or several of these positions will help you to quickly get to the heart of what your business is most in need of.  Your IT staff will also help you to understand your hardware situation and any needs you might have there before purchasing a new accounting system.
