One of the many challenges facing fast-growth small to midsized enterprises (SMEs) is that the business software they use to reach their current stage of growth can’t always keep pace with their needs for tomorrow. While accounting applications like QuickBooks can support a business through the start-up phase of and beyond, it doesn’t necessarily ride with a business all the way to the top. To the credit of accounting software publishers, these applications do what they do well – primarily supporting primary small business accounting functionality.
The important caveat being that they don’t have much of a product roadmap to outline the development of new features needed to support your business growth into the future. Accounting applications publishers have the expectation that you’ll outgrow the solution and move to enterprise resource planning software(ERP) sooner or later.
