Back in January, I wrote about software you can use to help grow your business. As many entrepreneurs come to realize, the traditional software that ran your business as a start up is now inefficient as your company grows and expands. Basic desktop software is simply not enough. Depending on the type of business you own, it's important to consider the type of applications and features that are best suited for your business needs.
One such application is Quickbooks' Enterprise Accounting Software. In a new partnership with IBM which is being announced this week, Intuit is committing themselves to the mid-size market (20-499 employees). The software helps growing companies run key segments of their business such as sales, inventory, finances, purchasing and payroll in a cost efficient and effective manner. Best of all, the software works across multiple locations/offices so as your company grows, the application grows with you. Some of the key features include:
- Multi-Currency Capability
- International Payment Service
- Performance Analyzer & Custom Report Builder
- Multi-User Backup
- Quickbooks Instant Messenger
In addition to the key features, Quickbooks offers at least seven specific industry versions. The industries are:
- Distribution & Wholesale
- Field Services
- Non Profit
- Professional Services
As you can see, Quickbooks Enterprise Accounting Software is not "your father's version" of how to run the financial part of your business. It's built for growing, entrepreneurial companies with several locations that might also be doing business overseas. If your company fits this profile and hasn't upgraded your financial software, then your business is operating at a distinct disadvantage against the competition. Take the time now to investigate how financial software can help improve your bottom line.
