Don't Cater To Your Software, Make It Work For You Businesses have a tendency to grow and change over time. Unfortunately, most entry-level business software doesn't. Your business software may have worked efficiently when it was implemented, but as business has expanded, you may have reached the limitations of your solution. Don’t waste any more time catering to your software, get a solution that works the way you work today and is flexible enough to grow and change with your business. Entry-level software works when your business is just getting started or is small in size. As your business ages, you add customers, expand product lines, and hire new people to handle the growth of your enterprise. This increased volume of data can’t often be managed by entry-level software and you may notice that you are relying on other means to organize and store data. Spreadsheets are popular because they are easy to learn and use, but often fraught with mistakes. As your team re-enters key data from the spreadsheets back into the business software, valuable time is wasted and there is an increased chance for more mistakes within your data. At the end of the day, you are working harder to manage your data than your software. Turn the tables and implement an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that will work for you so you don’t have to work quite as hard. Today’s ERP solutions, such as Sage 100 ERP, offer time-saving automation's, easy data-entry, and even easier data-sharing.

Sage 100 ERP is just as easy to learn as it is to use so you can get rid of complex spreadsheets or other separate, specialty systems. You don’t have to waste time with redundant data entry or data verification because you can easily access real-time data. In addition, ERP solutions are built to handle larger volumes of data. You won’t have the types of delays with queries or data analysis that you do with entry-level solutions or spreadsheets. If you are working harder than your software, then it may be time to implement a new solution.
