Signs That Your Accounting Software is Hampering Your Productivity
5 min. read
There was once a time when old accounting software was the perfect solution for managing a business’s finances. The solutions these older generations of software provided were versatile enough to manage the complexities of accounting 10 years ago, but technology has come a long way. This software was once considered essential for the growth of a firm, but it is now instead of dragging them behind.
That’s why many firms and businesses are quickly leaving older accounting software behind. Old accounting software tends to have a few irredeemable flaws that make it impossible to use in today’s world if you’re looking to grow your business. For instance,
- These financial software solutions tend to rely too heavily on spreadsheets and manual data entry, wasting valuable time and money in the amount of hours spent on labour.
- With old financial software as the foundation, spreadsheets lack the sophistication to meet accounting requirements such as revenue recognition and multi-entity consolidation. Because of this, multiple spreadsheets need to be created in order to support complex data, or some firms might even have to create their own application-systems to support their old accounting software.
- If you have gone with a mid-market software then you might have invested heavily on servers, databases, and brought in IT specialists, and maintained software which then becomes too expensive and sometimes makes no sense in investing if we look at the ROI time.
- This stitching of multiple solutions makes firms waste time and resources and produces entry errors, incorrect or out-dated data, inefficiencies, and an absence of control and compliance.
