When Buying Accounting Software, Bigger isn't Always Better

Growing Pains

So you're the CEO or CFO of a small to mid-sized business that's seen a lot of growth. In its infant stages, it made sense for your company to use an accounting solution like Quickbooks or Peachtree, but now you're in need of more complex functionality. Spreadsheet-based reports are becoming unmanageable and prone to too many errors. As your business is growing, you'd like to have better visibility into what's happening real-time, so you can be strategic and plan for the future. Maybe you've grown so fast that you've had all of your data in Excel, and you're taking months to complete your year-end-close process, going through bank and credit card statements, invoices and expense reports (don't be embarrassed - it's more common than you think, even for companies with tens of millions of dollars in revenue).

Even though it can be a tough decision to switch to a new system, when the benefits outweigh the cons, it's time (or more like, well past time) to make a move.
