As your business diversifies and grows in complexity, you need more than basic bookkeeping, inventory management, and backward looking reporting. You need a complete business management or enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that takes advantage of the latest innovations from cloud computing to mobile to social connectivity.
There are several common signs that indicate your business has outgrown your existing accounting software. Here’s the good news—there has never been a better time for small or midsized businesses to take advantage of the latest technology innovations to support your future growth ambition. If you have experienced any of these issues, it may be time to upgrade your business management solution:
- Even with more personnel you can’t keep up with growth
- You no longer have the control and visibility needed to monitor and track performance
- You spend more time being reactive when you need to be proactive
- You can’t support a mobile workforce
- Customer satisfaction is decreasing because you aren’t meeting expectations
