Do you sometimes feel like you’re playing Jenga each time you run a report in your accounting software… like it could just crash at any moment?
Your Sage 50 business accounting software provided you with the bookkeeping capabilities you needed to get your company started, but you’ve grown, have more customers, more employees, more data and more demands.
Signs you’ve outgrown your accounting solution:
- You find yourself and your staff spend more time creating “work arounds” than time spent generating revenue
- Your reports take so long to run you’re wondering if you should go back to paper ledgers
- Processing anything takes so long you’re considering bringing a pillow to work
- You still have clients in your database from 1996 but haven’t done business with them since 1998
- You have inventory SKUs listed in your database that won’t even work with today’s technology
- You started using your accounting software when your daughter was born and she just graduated middle school
So what do you do when you have outgrown your current accounting software?
Be Proactive – don’t wait too long to replace your inadequate system as you’ll eventually lose productivity and not be able to pull sufficient data to make good business decisions.
Make the Decision to Move to a New System Based on Potential Return- moving your business to a new accounting system is a large decision that needs to be based on cost evaluations. What is the potential cost if you continue using your inadequate system? What efficiencies could your business achieve with an updated, automated accounting system?
