Success Comes at a Price for Companies Using QuickBooks

Experience Cost-Effective Growth with NetSuite

QuickBooks offers an entry-level accounting system for most companies. But with growth comes the need for a more sophisticated solution and stronger financial and inventory controls.

Many companies find themselves relying upon a “spreadsheet hairball” to complement their QuickBooks system. When your team and operations are small, the seemingly low cost of QuickBooks masks the price of missed opportunities and inefficiencies in carrying out routine tasks.

As you’ve grown, you may have found your business limited by the manual processes, errors, and lack of real-time data with having to add systems and constantly engineer short-term, quick fixes. At this point, business opportunities that can lead to growth present challenges instead.

Fast-growing companies that’ve felt these pains face difficult questions, such as:

  • How do we leverage new technologies without disrupting the business and the balance sheet?
  • Can upgraded systems free-up information producers to improve decision making?
  • Who can we trust to provide functionality that extends beyond the back office?

Move your company to an integrated suite of cloud-based solutions and benefit from more efficient and effective business operations.

Avoiding the Hairball

QuickBooks forces companies to spend time adding third-party applications for specific purposes: revenue recognition, asset management, procurement, CRM, billing, inventory management, services delivery, and more. If these systems aren’t integrated, your staff must maintain multiple applications and risk data entry errors when moving information between programs. For example, inventory management done in spreadsheets can result in overstock or backorders and stockout, impacting customer loyalty and the bottom line.

Also, the limited controls in QuickBooks around approvals and workflows can introduce the risk of fraud and become a significant auditability concern. And that turns your spreadsheet hairball into an application hairball.
