For most businesses, it makes sense to get started with a basic accounting software package such as QuickBooks. But, then there comes a time when your business literally outgrows the software. You need systems that can keep up with and support new business opportunities and changing demands. Perhaps your business has a new division, needs additional functionality such as manufacturing or distribution or requires more detailed reporting.
Just like an implementation, upgrading your ERP System requires a lot of preparation. Processes need to be reviewed, data needs to be verified, stakeholders need to be assigned - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! However, a lot of time we’ll go into a business – they say they are prepared – later on we find, they weren’t. Of course, this causes frustration for the business because a lot of this prep work is now on the clock and that can add up.
