Growing Pain #10 and Summary: Bottom-line, your Entry-Level Accounting is Holding you Back
QuickBooks can hold you back in more ways than one. As we’ve discussed in this blog series for 10 weeks, limited scalability, manual processes, and downtime can create obstacles for your business instead of paving the way for success. You know you’ve outgrown QuickBooks if you’re ready to admit your entry-level accounting software is holding you back!
Travis Perkins, Director of IT for EMIT Technologies, "We were relying on QuickBooks for basic accounting, but we needed to address long-term goals of our growing business and knew we would need a more robust solution that handled inventory management and manufacturing as well." He continues, "With Microsoft Dynamics, we’re now in a position where we’re better prepared to accept projects we wouldn’t usually manufacture. There’s a good chance we’re designing something new every day."
