6 Signs You’ve Outgrown QuickBooks and How Microsoft Dynamics GP Can Help

There is no denying the success of QuickBooks. It is the most popular small business accounting software in the world.  While it does a good job of addressing the needs of small businesses, its limitations prevent it from growing with organizations on the rise.

Here are 6 signs that your business is outgrowing QuickBooks and should consider another solution:

  1. You experience unacceptable delays in menus or screens
  2. Reports take an unacceptable amount of time to print
  3. Your customer, vendor, employee or other lists exceed 10,000 items
  4. You exceed 32,000 transactions or the file size reaches 30MB
  5. You find yourself wishing for additional functionality to accomplish more
  6. You require more robust reporting to gain business insight

Once you’ve begun to see these signs in your business, it’s time to start looking for a new solution that will address these concerns and continue to grow with your business.
