There are several accounting software packages available on the market today. How do you know that you are using the right one for your business, and when your business is ready for a change? Experienced advisors, like us, can be very helpful in the evaluation process. We are well versed in accounting software and are experts with Canada’s #1 small business software, QuickBooks™.
Here are 2 of the guiding principles we follow when helping clients contemplate change:
1. Your Accounting System Software Should: support your current processes but also accommodate future growth goals. If your current system isn’t providing you with the necessary functions to support your developing business it may be time to make a change.
2. Your Accounting System Software Should Not: contain more features than you need to run your business efficiently. Fancy bells and whistles will be of no use for your company, and will end up costing you more.
Before you commit to new accounting software, ask yourself these questions:
Do I Have a Plan? – Have I reviewed all the reasons for change, whether it’s business expansion or process improvement? Have I discussed my needs with a knowledgeable advisor that can help review my company’s financial procedures and the programs that might be beneficial?
Who Will Set Up the New Software/System? – Do I know an expert that can set up and implement? I want to be confident that it was done correctly, so that my team and I can continue with day to day operations.
What About Training? – Now that I’ve made the financial investment, how will my team learn to use the new system properly and to its full potential?
The answer to these burning questions and more is easy, The Art of Accounting. As QuickBooks ProAdvisors, we have many years of experience in applying new processes and procedures as well implementing and converting accounting systems.
