There comes a time in every healthy company’s life when they go through a lot of growth and their current software just can’t keep up. Although this change is perfectly normal for a profitable company, it can also be a sign that you've outgrown your software. In this article we will be discussing some of the growing pains that are a sure sign it’s time to move on to a better business solution software.

Why businesses need management solutions

Is it even necessary to use a business management software? According to Aberdeen Group, 97% of the manufacturing industry's leaders say, “Yes”. Business management solutions are computer software programs design to streamline the day to day tasks so the company can work faster and be more productively. It also helps with collaborating and reporting on projects both big and small.

Warning: Your company has outgrown your software if...

  • Sales are growing but you can’t keep up with demand
  • You’re having to constantly over produce for fear of running out of product
  • Your order fill, item fill, and customer satisfaction is going down
  • Getting a lot of negative feedback from customers who has received a shipment that does match the invoice.

If you fall into any or all of these categories, it’s to upgrade your software not only to fix these problems but to also make your company grow as they improve their methods. As far as it’s functionality, business solutions tend to handle employee management, scheduling, task assignment, and budgeting. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a solution that can do all of that while ultimately reducing the time it takes to complete business transactions. It has also proven to use less paper and work force.

With a complete, end-to-end ERP system, you get a wealth of information that spans from the finance department to your customer database. So you can go one place to get all your company’s data, and keep inconsistencies from happening. The information is updated as soon as the transaction is complete so all decisions are based on current information.

How cloud makes ERP even better

Cloud-based ERP has a natural talent for growing businesses. This is because of a couple of reasons, one being that the cloud is so flexible that it easily adjusts to companies of all different sizes. It also does a good job of providing robust functionality that can be accessed anywhere along with sophisticated reporting abilities. A great example of a company growing cloud ERP solution is Acumatica, unlike many other ERP solutions Acumatica doesn't have any user license costs.
