5 Signs You’ve Outgrown QuickBooks

5 Signs You’ve Outgrown QuickBooks

Why Fast-Growing Companies Choose NetSuite

In recent years, we’ve seen a big increase in the number of companies switching from QuickBooks to NetSuite.  And for a variety of reasons.

Whether you’re a Manufacturer, Distributor, Pro Services Firm, or Software company, everyone needs a financial management system.

For smaller companies and start-ups, especially when you’re just getting off the ground, QuickBooks can be a great option.

Truth be told, there is nothing wrong with QuickBooks.  It can handle the basics, is convenient to use, and is relatively cheap.

However, if your company starts to experience rapid growth, you may begin to realize it can’t do everything you need it to.

Sign 1

Is your growth is being limited? If so, you’re seeing the first of a few signs that it may be time to part ways with QuickBooks.

Sign 2

Does your Accounting team play a game every month called, “Hunt for the Spreadsheet”?

If so, and some of your colleagues spend more time trying to find the data than analyze it, this is another indication that QuickBooks may no longer be sufficient.

Sign 3

Does your sales forecasting and budgeting processes rely on educated guesses rather than hard facts? Then say hello to sign number three.

When the actual helpful data you need is too hard to extract and make meaningful insights from, this is another signal that QuickBooks no longer suits for your needs.

Sign 4

Is more of your accounting done outside of your system than in it?

This tends to happen with disparate, siloed systems, and is a tell-tale sign that it’s time to consider an upgrade.

Sign 5

Are you having a difficult time adding new sales channels, revenue streams, or product lines? This means it’s time to think outside the box. When manual processes become too cumbersome, this is evidence that automation may be required.
