How Do I Know When I’ve Outgrown QuickBooks?


QuickBooks, while user-friendly and efficient for small businesses, becomes less efficient and effective as your business grows in size and complexity.

If your business is growing you may be ready for Outsourced Accounting Services and Accounting Technology Solutions.

Here are some key indicators that signal when it might be time to transition from QuickBooks to more advanced accounting technology solutions.

1. My transaction volume has grown to a level that QuickBooks can’t handle efficiently, or at all.

2. The number of users of my accounting system has grown, and I need control of what these users can do and see.

3. I need to be able to track and analyze my financial activity daily and in more detail.

4. I have to integrate 3rd party applications with QuickBooks. I would rather have one software that can handle all of my needs.

5. I have to maintain a fully GAAP Compliant General Ledger.

6. I need to consolidate multiple businesses into a single reporting presentation.

7. I need to set up custom measures to understand critical aspects of the business.

8. I need to be able to make consolidated financial presentations that incorporate complex ownership percentage allocations.

9. I find it difficult to manage inter-company “due to” and “due from” reconciliations between multiple related businesses.

10. I record transactions manually in QuickBooks, but I would like to be able to automate the triggering of accounting entries based on a set of rules.

11. I have to manually perform complex offline allocations. This is inefficient and time-consuming.

12. I spend too much time manually posting revenue recognition and accrual adjustments and I want a system where I can program in revenue and expense realization automatically.

While it might seem daunting to switch to a more robust system, the long-term benefits of enhanced efficiency and deeper insights make it a worthwhile endeavor.
