While your QuickBooks accounting system may have served you well in the beginning, things have changed. You have more human resources, more capital resources, more customers, and more complexity across your business. At this point, those spreadsheets, hand-written notes, and other workarounds you’ve started using to make up for a lack of functionality in your QuickBooks system just won’t work anymore. It’s time to consider a move to a system that is better equipped to deal with your business as it is today and as it could be in the future. If you’re on the fence as to whether or not it’s time to upgrade from QuickBooks to a more powerful system, you might want to read this article that discusses the indicators that the time has come. If you already know the time has come, Sage 100 ERP may be the perfect fit; and here’s why:
8 reasons to upgrade from QuickBooks to Sage 100 ERP:
Deeper insight for better, faster decision making:
Sage 100 features at-a-glance dashboards and has powerful, customizable reporting and analytics which gives you the ability to drill-down into the details that matter when it comes to managing your business. With this information readily available, you can make faster decisions, stay on budget, and identify new revenue and profit opportunities to take your business to the next level.
Confidence in your accounting:
Unlike QuickBooks, Sage 100 was designed to handle the complex accounting needs of growing businesses. By eliminating spreadsheets and other archaic practices, you will have a far more accurate view of your company’s finances, confidence in the face of an audit, and the tools you need to accelerate financial close.
Sage 100 ERP leaves room for the future:
You’re growing so who know where you could be three, five, or ten years from now. Sage 100 ERP can grow with you and easily expands to suit needs as they arise. The modular design of Sage 100 allows companies to choose the functionality that best suits their business needs now and as your needs change, you can quickly add users and modules.
Your switch from QuickBooks to Sage ERP will be relatively hassle free with minimum disruptions. Lightcubes LLC recently underwent a migration from QuickBooks to ERP and reported, “We were ecstatic that data on our 2,000-plus customers converted seamlessly, as did all of our open invoices. We’d feared a horrendous upgrade process, and instead found it was relatively painless.”
Finally work the way you want to:
Sage 100 has flexibility that allows user-level personalization and role-based dashboards so you have instant access to the information you want and need to be at your best.
It’s easy to use:
Making the move from QuickBooks to Sage 100 ERP can be scary. After all, a larger system means a more complex one, right? Not when it comes to user experiences. Yes, Sage 100 is more complex under the surface to help you manage your more complex business needs, but it is not more complex to use. Unlike other ERO systems, Sage 100 has an intuitive, user-centered design so you can focus on your work, not on figuring out the software.
Increased visibility and tracking:
With Sage 100 ERP you will be able to see more than financial information, you can see up-to-the minute information across your organization; from financial to shop-floor and everything in between. You’ll be able to track inventory in a single or multiple locations.
Streamline the back office with integration and automation:
Stop wasting time and money on manual data entry and other non-value added manual processes. Seamless integration between CRM, ecommerce, and financials allows you to eliminate data entry errors and operate an end-to-end business system, automating and integrating everything from accounts receivable management to payroll, sales orders, and everything in between.
