Business growth is a cause for celebration. However, growth comes with challenges, and your finance team may be working overtime to keep up. At Vision33, we see this frequently within organizations that use small business accounting applications.
Many startups choose basic software such as QuickBooks because it’s easy to use and offers straightforward accounting capabilities. However, once a business becomes more complex, QuickBooks becomes a bottleneck to growth.
You may think trading QuickBooks for a cloud financial management system is cost-prohibitive, but it’s not—especially compared to throwing money and manpower at a system that’s holding you back.
Here are a few signs you’ve outgrown QuickBooks:
The Dreaded Spreadsheets
Spreadsheets are inevitable, time-draining workarounds for QuickBooks users. Excel doesn’t work for businesses with complex needs like revenue recognition and multi-entity consolidations. One error in copying and pasting can cause an expensive mistake, and by the time you sort out your information, it’s already outdated.
Everything Is Disconnected
It’s difficult to integrate QuickBooks with your other critical business applications. If your systems can’t talk to each other, you’re constantly re-entering the same information in different places. Transforming the data requires too much time and tedious workflows and leads to costly errors.
Reporting Is Like Herding Cats
You need deep financial insights and information you can slice and dice to make fast, confident decisions. That starts with real-time information and powerful, customizable reports. QuickBooks falls short, and you don’t have time to wrangle information when your executive team wants answers.
