Three common QuickBooks Enterprise problems
When you started your business, you probably discovered a way to solve a common problem and make money doing it. You didn’t do it just to “get by”; you expected your business to thrive! For a while, using QuickBooks Enterprise (QBE) was sufficient enough to get the job done. Your financials were spot on, reports were easily to reconcile, and you could actually manage all aspects of your business! Then, however, your business started to grow and so did the number of complications you started to have with QBE. While you figured out some temporary fixes and workarounds, they were like covering a leak in a dam with a piece of tape – ineffective long-term solutions. If this sounds familiar, rest assured that you’re not alone.
Common problems your business may be experiencing
Time (and Money) Lost
One of the top complaints about QBE that rings true from industry to industry is the time and energy spent to complete a simple task. This includes logging in and out of separate programs for each part of your business to work on financials, customer management, subscription billing, and more. If your business has multiple entities, this inefficiency is multiplied! This translates to lost work time and, most importantly, potential revenue.
Too Much Volume
While QBE is suitable for smaller databases, it cannot handle an increase in volume as your business grows. It essentially sabotages your growing company’s success, as it doesn’t allow your business to exceed a specific number of customers, financials, and more! Information easily becomes lost in QBE's incapable database, and locating specific data becomes more of a hunt than a simple search.
Every business is different, and your accounting solution should be able to reasonably scale to your needs. QBE falters in this department. Perhaps you need a personalized dashboard for specific areas of your business; QBE can’t do that. Notes? Forget about it – they easily get lost and aren’t customizable to your clients!
