Manufacturers need software that meets all of their business priorities, not just for accounting. Despite this apparent need, finding a business application that is both comprehensive and cost-effective can be remarkably difficult.
QuickBooks is a natural starting point for many businesses looking to make their business operations simpler and more efficient. But in time, these companies develop an overreliance on those static spreadsheets and limited accounting systems. The relatively low cost of maintaining the solution masks costly inefficiencies in critical areas of the business. And all too often, manufacturing teams end up layering on additional pieces of software to try to mask QuickBooks’ deficiencies in areas such as a warehouse or inventory management. This snowball of point solutions ultimately leads to a higher total cost of ownership compared to what manufacturers would face if they consolidated under one system.
