Does Your Accounting Software Deserve an Upgrade?


Email | Print

Congratulations on moving into a bigger building, increasing the number of employees, and taking your business to the next level.  The toughest part about business growth is shifting from accounting software to all-encompassing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software.  However, making the upgrade to the right software can further your growth in ways you might not have imagined.

Many businesses choose a basic accounting program, such as QuickBooks,  while in the startup phase .  While simple software programs are usually easy to learn and use, they can’t often keep up with business growth.  After time, the volume of data in the accounting software has grown which causes lagging runtimes and difficulty with finding and printing the data you need to make swift decisions.  In addition, there can be limits to the number of users allowed to get into the software.  You may already be feeling these growing pains, but there is an answer.

Microsoft Dynamics® GP is a great choice for businesses migrating out of a basic accounting program.  This popular ERP software solution looks and works like many other commonly used Microsoft applications.  The familiarity makes it easy to learn and use.  In addition, it works with other Microsoft software, so you can export data into Microsoft® Excel, schedule important events in Microsoft® Outlook, and use Microsoft® SharePoint for document sharing.  There are no limitations with number of users either; you can add users as you grow.

ERP solutions, like Microsoft Dynamics GP, provide management capabilities for financials, manufacturing, supply chain, project and services management, human resources and payroll, and other core business functions.  Your entire team, from the front office to the back warehouse, can be connected in this integrated solution.  Managing all of your data in a single software solution provides greater control and insight than when having data scattered amongst disparate software programs and spreadsheets.  Your entire team can share data, collaborate easier, and work together to further your business growth.

The reality is, basic accounting software has its limits.  It can only provide so much information for a limited number of users.  Whereas ERP software, like Microsoft Dynamics GP, is flexible enough to grow and change as your business grows and changes.  The right ERP solution will give you the insight to streamline operations, add automation to increase productivity, and provide the insight needed to grow your business.  Contact Associates Solutions, Inc. for more information about Microsoft Dynamics GP and how to give your basic accounting software an upgrade it deserves: http://www.associates-solutions.com/contact/contact.html.
