If your business is using an existing Accounting Software Solution to manage your business, you may be asking yourself whether you now need an end-to-end business solution that can grow and evolve – to support your growth ambitions. Businesses reach a tipping point where the tools that supported their business are now hindering their ability to act with agility and insight.
The good news is, there’s never been a better time to replace an enterprise resource planning (ERP) or customer relationship management (CRM) solution. An Accounting Software to ERP solution, from Microsoft Dynamic 365, will be the next step. In our experience, the four core board-level benefits sought from a Accounting and ERP solution are:
Productivity: time-saving integration, with swift access to all business data – from a single solution
Financial Control: enabling cost control and smarter buying decisions – opportunities for growth and re-investment
Business Insight: built-in business intelligence and reporting features – that puts data into context, to make swift business decisions
Mobility: connected anytime, anywhere any device – with real-time reporting and collaboration tools
Today’s Accounting Software Challenges
There are several common signs that indicate your business has outgrown your existing accounting software: even with more personnel you can’t keep up with growth; you no longer have the control and visibility needed to monitor and track performance; you spend more time being reactive when you need to be proactive; you can’t support a mobile workforce; and customer satisfaction is decreasing because you aren’t meeting expectations.
