Your Business Is Growing Up, So Should Your Software

Nurturing your business from the early beginnings takes a lot of time, effort, and dedication.  As the months and years tick by and your business matures and grows, the day will come when you have grown out of your basic accounting software.  Don’t fret, that is a good thing for a successful business!  Migrating from accounting software into enterprise resource planning (ERP) software isn’t the challenge you might think.

Most businesses grow out of their accounting software within a few years after start-up.  Basic accounting software got them through those challenging early years and it’s time for more powerful ERP software to get them to the next stage in business growth.  Similarly, there are companies who have successfully used a legacy ERP system and are ready to upgrade to a new ERP solution.  Technology is always changing and it’s important to keep up-to-date with the tools that are available to help your business succeed.

Leaving your existing ERP solution can be scary, but it isn’t as bad as you think.  Let’s say you have a 1964 Ford Mustang, no doubt a muscle car that can get you to work or the grocery store.  Unfortunately, in this day and age, parts to keep the engine purring are getting harder to find and if you have it in the shop, you can’t get it to work.  Like the car, business software ages and you might not always be able to get the right mechanic to keep it running properly.  Turning to a new ERP software solution that suits your business needs will help you improve business agility and help you maintain a competitive advantage in your marketplace.  The right software will also provide a higher return on investment (better gas mileage) than a system that wasn’t working as efficiently.

Your software provider can assist you with choosing the right ERP system for your business needs today.  Most current ERP solutions, such as the Microsoft Dynamics® GP, AX or NAV, are able to migrate legacy data into your new ERP solution.  When migrating legacy data, you and your provider can validate and check for data accuracy so that you are preserving good, clean data.  Working within the right ERP software can greatly improve your productivity, as well as provide visibility into your critical data.  It’s important to have a solution that fits no matter how new or experienced your business is today.
