The Essentials of Effective Financials Software
Many SMB companies stick with older, legacy systems due to sheer inertia – and the age old adage, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. But you need to ask yourself: have your spreadsheets become unwieldy, are cash flow issues chronic, is accounting staff wasting time on manual & duplicative work? If your answer is yes to any of these, it’s time to formulate a new plan and upgrade your accounting/ financials software.
When the time comes to evaluate alternatives, it’s critical that the system you select enables you to integrate and centrally manage the following functions:
- Recurring Revenue and Revenue Recognition Management
- Financial Planning and Reporting
- Fixed Asset Management
- Integrated Inventory Management, Fulfillment and Shipping – A major component of cost control
- A Streamlined Order-to-Cash Process
- Business Intelligence
- Project Accounting and Contracts Management
A modern, end-to-end financial management system gives you deeper insights into your business, improves your ability to plan, and gives you business intelligence that refines processes and drives performance.
