Before you make any important business decisions, it is wise to check the books. Can you afford to take on this project or will it strain the profit margin? Unfortunately, when using entry-level accounting software like QuickBooks, the answers don’t come as easily or quickly as the questions. While you can draw financial data from QuickBooks, you still need details from other departments to provide all of the information you need to move forward. Constantly going back to the books and your managers means you are looking backward more often than forward.
According to a 2012 survey by Information Week Enterprise Applications, 24% of businesses hope to develop and deliver innovate products and services. In order to achieve this forward thinking approach to business, you need access to critical business data in order to make the timely business decisions that drive growth. If you are unable to get your hands on detailed financial reports in real-time, then you never really know where your business stands. Are you making money or losing money? Is your profit margin high or are you just barely breaking even? You know you’ve outgrown QuickBooks when you’re so busy looking at reports focused on a backward view of your business that you don’t have time for planning and capitalizing on your future.
