Have you thought about whether your business has outgrown your accounting solution? If your accounting package isn’t meeting your needs, decreasing workloads, and providing beneficial tracking and monitoring options – it’s time to change.
One change to think about is shifting to an integrated modular system. A modular system provides a couple primary benefits. The first benefit is that you buy only what you need to start. For example, if you currently have one storefront with your entire inventory kept on site, then you might only need point of sale and inventory. Then, as your business grows and you add online ordering, increase to multiple locations of inventory (store, warehouse), and add an administration office you can add order entry, accounts payable, purchase order, multi-location inventory, general ledger, and payroll, as needed.
The second benefit of modularity is integration. When you can fully integrate your installed modules, you significantly decrease your workload. This functionality allows you to enter data in one place and have it automatically available in other modules. For example, you might add a transaction in Order Entry and after posting, the order shows in up general ledger and accounts receivable for the selected customer. Now, you can go directly to A/R when your customer pays the bill instead of having to re-enter the invoice ahead of time. This type of functionality allows you to monitor closely your customers’ account balances and more. An integrated system also enhances reporting options because you can run various reports that show what you need instead of compiling multiple reports from each module.
