When QuickBooks Doesn’t Fit Anymore its Time to Implement ERP

When QuickBooks Doesn’t Fit Anymore its Time to Implement ERP

QuickBooks upgrade ERPOur company has spent decades working with companies of many shapes and sizes. Many of the companies who come to us are SMB’s in the manufacturing, distribution, and service industries who have decided it is time to move on from QuickBooks and implement an ERP system. But how did they come to this conclusion? Did someone tell them? Is there a moment when the decision was made for them?

Unfortunately no, there is no magical moment of clarity when you realize you would be better served with an ERP system, but there are many telltale signs that indicate that the time has come to ditch QuickBooks.

It’s time to implement ERP if you are experiencing the following:

  • You manage your data outside of QuickBooks using spreadsheets.
  • You have insufficient control and visibility into your financial information
  • The number of add-on software systems you have is just getting too hard, too expensive, and too time consuming to manage.
  • Reporting takes forever and you still can’t get the information you really need want due to a lack of reporting capabilities.
  • Redundant data entry takes a tone of time, not to mention the errors that come with it and the time it then takes to correct them…if you catch them before they cause damage.
  • With your growth, the complex reporting required for compliance and quality are basically impossible in QuickBooks and it is becoming a real source of worry. 
  • You find yourself needing multi-currency capabilities that you don’t have in QuickBooks.
  • With more employees than ever before, you need security flexibility and control for different users.
  • Your QuickBooks program itself just doesn’t work right anymore. Many companies see a decline in system performance at these milestones:
    • QuickBooks file size is 250MB+ 
    • Transactions exceeds 32,000
    • Customer, vendor, and employee lists grow to 10,000+

Do any of the above sound familiar? It’s ok if they do, it is just a sign of success!
Starting out with QuickBooks is great, but the system was not designed to handle the complex requirements of companies who grow beyond a certain point. Implementing ERP can and will solve the above problems for you, provided that you choose implement ERP that is meant for the job you need it to do.
