As your business grows and expands, you may notice that you are pushing the limits of your entry-level accounting solutions. QuickBooks® can support businesses for some time; however, you may reach limits as you increase the number of employees, expand products and services, and grow your customer base. Migrate your QuickBooks data into an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution before your newfound growth is stopped in its tracks.
QuickBooks is a popular entry-level accounting solution for many small or new businesses. However, businesses many not realize that there may come a time when QuickBooks will no longer support your growing organization. The solution itself limits the number of users, which may not work when your accounting department has grown. In addition, it offers limited insight into operational processes, which then forces you to pursue additional specialty software systems to manage inventory, sales, and other activities. Disparate systems can lead to additional problems with entering and accessing reliable data. If you are experiencing growing pains, it may be time to deploy an ERP solution such as Microsoft Dynamics® GP.
Microsoft Dynamics GP is an innovative solution that is affordable for nearly any business and offers a low total cost of ownership for mid-market ERP solutions. QuickBooks data can be migrated into Microsoft Dynamics GP with the support of your software provider so that you can get back to business with minimal interruption. This innovative solution also offers a simple way to manage all of your core processes including accounting and financials, manufacturing and distribution operations, inventory management, supply chain oversight, and other processes. Time-saving automations streamline common tasks, improving the productivity of your employees from the front office to the back warehouse.
In addition to data management, Microsoft Dynamics GP also offers powerful business intelligence and reporting features. You can use real-time data to identify trends with product sales, labor productivity, inventory, and other key metrics. You can then use this insight to your competitive advantage. For example, you may identify trending products and make strategic procurement decisions that stock the warehouse cost-effectively, without over-investing in inventory or risking stock-outs.
