Is Your Company Outgrowing Sage BusinessWorks?

We’ve seen it time and again.  Companies that were just fine running Sage BusinessWorks when they first started, have grown and are struggling now that they’ve got more data, more employees, more inventory, and more complexity than Sage BusinessWorks was built for.

As companies begin to outgrow their software system, we generally see some common systems.

  1. The software becomes too slow or locks up – transactions take longer to process, reports are slower to generate or your software has to be reset.
  2. Duplicate data entry leads to errors – hours of tedious manual data entry in multiple systems becomes very costly, duplicate data entry leads to errors or reports are often inaccurate and take days to assemble.
  3. Lack of accounting controls and security – as your business has grown and added new employees, you now need control over who gets access to certain screens, functions and data.
  4. Standard BusinessWorks reports no longer cut it – as your business has grown, you need to begin managing and analyzing more moving parts and the standard reports no longer fulfill your needs.
  5. BusinessWorks does not play well with others – whether it’s a new time entry system or online web store as your business grows, so do the number of business systems creating the need for integration.

If your company is at a pivotal growth stage or suffering from any of these symptoms, you’ll need a knowledgeable technology consultant and business software provider to find a solution that fits your business.
