3 Reasons CFOs Switch from QuickBooks to NetSuite and 3 Wins That Result

It’s no surprise, then, that many CFOs switch from QuickBooks to NetSuite. Doing so not only makes your system more efficient, but it can also shave days off your financial close: It’s not uncommon for finance teams to reduce their close from six days to four after switching systems.

Top 12 Signs That You’re Outgrowing QuickBooks

QuickBooks is the entry into accounting software for many businesses, thanks to its low price point and relative simplicity. However, it is an entry-level accounting system and growing businesses quickly come to understand the shortcomings of the software. While many of QuickBooks’ shortcomings can be overcome with manual workarounds and complementary software, eventually those steps are not enough and problems emerge that begin to stifle growth. The difficult part for many of these businesses is determining when they need to move to a new system.

If your business recognizes one or more of the signs compiled in our whitepaper, it’s probably time for you to move on from QuickBooks and grow your organization with a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. ERP systems collect business information from around your company and integrate it into one digital ecosystem. Separate business functions are broken down into modules, including warehouse management, finance management, customer resource management and much more. Moving to an ERP platform needn’t be a disruptive and painful process. Today’s systems allow companies to more easily add specific ERP modules as they need them.

Strategies If You’ve Outgrown QuickBooks

Because of QuickBooks’ limitations, companies are often forced to grow by adding more systems or applications for specific purposes—which often aren’t integrated with each other—and may revise or attempt to automate certain business processes. This can result in a complex “applications hairball” that’s rife with manual tasks and bottlenecks, increases the risks of errors, can hurt the customer experience, and can limit growth.
