When companies go through growth in size and complexity, they become less and less flexible. Your customers begin to demand more from you; they expect speed. This can be done by moving to the next stage as a mid-market company and deciding to change out your current accounting software to a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) platform.
It is hard to quantify how much your antiquated system is costing you. From my experiences, it feels as if people don’t know how great it can be before they experience it. Some of the areas your organization is affected by are lost sales, customer dissatisfaction, or compliance risks.
These are some the warning signs, or red flags, that may make you want to make a change:
- Manual processes can’t keep up with increasing demand despite added headcount
- Sales drop due to out-of-stocks or production delays
- Manual reporting creates tedious, month-end close procedures that impede on your staff’s efficiency
- Unreliable data keeps you from confidently investing in new products, locations, or lines of business
- Increasingly stringent compliance and security concerns keep you up at night
- Valuable employees or prospective hires go elsewhere because they expect modern devices for better productivity
Now what? Now would be the time to set times to meet with local ERP vendors. The Microsoft Dynamics GP platform offers cloud and on-premise offerings to choose from; and a generous partner channel, which gives you the ability to change your partnership at any point.
