When you’re just starting out, it’s good to stick with what you know, what’s affordable, and what’s built for a business of your size. For most small businesses, this means the adoption of an Entry-level accounting system like QuickBooks, which is built to handle the basic needs of entrepreneurs—offering basic functionality at a reasonable price.
How Can You Tell You’ve Outgrown QuickBooks?
This is great for the early stages of a business, but when you begin to grow, you begin to notice that your software isn’t helping you get what you need—the right information at the right time, and isn’t making your job any easier. It takes longer to close the books, the software runs slower, and essentially, you begin to learn that the software is holding you back.
In an earlier rinehimerbaker blog, we explored some of the biggest red flags that pop up—limited reporting, double entry and keying errors, impersonal support, a lack of integration, and lack of speed—that appear when your business outgrows QuickBooks. We followed this up with an article highlighting the three biggest things holding your finance department back and the five biggest mistakes made at growing companies.
