Many companies start out using an introductory system like QuickBooks- and why shouldn’t they? QuickBooks is a well known solution that is easy to use and fills the needs of a small company. But over time companies grow and begin to experience some of the common hassles and expenses of using a system that can no longer handle the changing requirements, processes, and accounting needs of a larger business. When this happens, businesses may see an increase in the number of manual and paper processes outside of their QuickBooks system required to keep up with the new processes, accounting, and reporting complexities. This translates into much more time, resources, and money needed to gather and analyze financial data. As a growing company you recognize the need for more visibility and additional functionality to truly thrive. So you make the decision to move from QuickBooks to a larger and more robust system; but at what cost?

But how much of an investment should you make? How big a system do you need? This white paper covers a few of your options and tips on how to budget for the move.
