At Daston, we understand the accounting challenges that businesses face as they grow. We often hear from companies that starting out with QuickBooks initially was a great solution due to its low cost and the ability to maintain the system on-premises. However, as they expanded, these organizations discovered that they required more functionality.
These growing businesses find that a lack of real-time data accompanied by accounting errors while using QuickBooks is inefficient because their accounting team is stuck using manual processes to create short-term fixes. They struggle with the software’s limitations, and they must spend time adding bolt-on integrations just to track data for revenue management, order management, fixed assets, billing, procurement, inventory management, and services delivery.
Because QuickBooks doesn’t share data from a central location, changes aren’t tracked in real-time, causing leaders to make decisions with outdated information. Moreover, if the systems aren’t unified, the company must work with a variety of applications, which could mean costly errors if data is entered incorrectly when it is transferred among disparate programs.
Companies who have experienced these challenges dream of upgraded systems that could free up their accounting team to become decision advisors to the wider business.
The Cloud Advantage
Adopting cloud-based solutions is one way to resolve many of these problems. Financial activities appear as soon as they’re triggered, so leaders can make decisions using real-time data, delivering outcomes faster, for less cost, and with fewer resources.
However, simply moving to the cloud isn’t the final answer. If the company’s financial management systems are not unified and still live in standalone silos, they still will be forced to navigate multiple applications and data repositories for everyday activities, even in the cloud.
