“It’s thinking.”  The AP clerk said as she clicked on a QuickBooks menu and waited.  And waited, and waited. Her company fit the profile of an ideal cloud accounting software customer.

Is QuickBooks running painfully slow for you?  What if you can’t wait?  What if 350 hourly employees are due to be paid, and QuickBooks crashes?  Payroll data is lost and must be re-keyed manually. This is also the profile of an ideal cloud accounting software customer.

The endless maze of workarounds

QuickBooks is one of the most widely used accounting solutions – because it works well.  Until it doesn’t.

Any growing business that relies on QuickBooks is bound to feel the constraints.  The solutions to these constraints (the need for spreadsheets, workarounds, extra steps, and manual data entry) begin to consume huge chunks of staff time.  Less and less time is available to analyze data because it is taking so long to collect and compile financial data.

The hidden costs of an inadequate system can be staggering when honestly and thoroughly calculated.

There is life after QuickBooks.  We invite you to download the free resource ‘Life After QuickBooks:  Why It’s Time to Step Up to Sage Intacct for Business-Class Financial Software’ and evaluate whether it is time to make your move.

The ease and efficiency of the cloud

You can tap the power of an AICPA endorsed accounting solution (Sage Intacct) with a web browser and an Internet connection.  It’s that simple.  Cloud solutions free you from having to invest in and maintain servers and the associated network infrastructure.

When your solution is in the cloud, your colleagues can use whichever device they prefer (or have handy) to access information.  Business travel doesn’t have to result in a delay of needed approvals and the subsequent bottlenecks.  Managers can use their smart phones to review and sign off those items needing their approval and then route them appropriately.

Your accounting staff will appreciate the increased productivity

Re-keying of data, scrambling to create a spreadsheet to address a request QuickBooks can’t handle, or having to wait until a colleague logs out of the system in order to log in, all of these problems become a thing of the past with Sage Intacct.  Now your team can focus on more strategic and meaningful activities.

Follow in the footsteps of thousands of QuickBooks graduates

If it seems like a dramatic move and a big investment, take comfort in knowing that many companies just like yours have felt the same concerns.  What they’ve found, after reviewing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and calculating the Return on Investment (ROI), is that Sage Intacct is the perfect choice for the business and your team.  Michaud Accounting Solutions can help you assess where Sage Intacct could transform your accounting processes and reporting.  We’ll also help you calculate the TCO and ROI.
