Need Real-time Insights for Growing Your Business? Switch from QuickBooks to Sage Intacct

As your rate of growth increases, you can’t afford to wait days or even hours for someone to extract the right data and get it into the right format to let you capture the right opportunities. That’s the reality of working with QuickBooks. There’s a better way. With Sage Intacct’s cloud financial management software, you get the right information tracked and presented in real time so you can make the course corrections that lead to repeatable, profitable growth.

Real-time dashboards for real-time insights

Sage Intacct uses dashboards to keep you updated day-to-day. Dashboards can be configured by role, to give your users the information they need to quickly make decisions in their area of influence. Within a dashboard, you can see a series of performance cards that display key metrics for your business. You can drill down on performance cards to see the numbers behind the summary. Dashboards also provide reports, charts, and approvals that you can drill down on, so the moment that you login you are up to date on what’s going on in your business. You can set up dashboard elements that display external web pages such as a login page to an integrated human-resources application. If you’ve integrated Sage Intacct Collaborate, you can see your message feed displayed right within the dashboard.

Reporting made easy and efficient

Sage Intacct’s report center gathers all your reports into one place. You don’t have to go searching different modules for the reports you want. You can see memorized reports, where you’ve preset filter options for quick use. Scheduled reports can run and be delivered on a schedule you set. From here, you can create new reports, copy and change existing reports, or simply customize existing reports.

Anxious about Switching from QuickBooks? Banish Your Fears with Trustantial

Making the switch from QuickBooks to a cloud financial management system like Sage Intacct may seem like a scary step to take. It’s likely your finance team finds the QuickBooks-and-spreadsheet routine as natural as breathing. However, if you’re business is growing—or you’d like it to grow—entry-level systems and Excel can’t support financial processes and reporting. Keying and re-keying data wastes valuable time and leads to costly errors. You don’t have the visibility into business metrics needed to make informed decisions. And with more data and more processes to support, your QuickBooks system is much too slow. Even though it’s time for a change that can only benefit your business, several fears may have you keep you tethered to QuickBooks:
  • A messy move: Whether you’re moving to a new house or new financial system, complications always arise. A QuickBooks ledger full of errors is no exception—you’re bound to encounter your fair share of duplicates or incorrect or incomplete information. Even the most fearless may find these inaccuracies daunting.
  • A sense of being stuck: Everybody has QuickBooks—or so it seems. The sheer volume of users has created a certain inertia that may make you feel it’s better to keep with the system you know. You’re sure can always find a workaround to overcome any technical issues.
  • Familiarity breeds comfort: Your business may be showing signs it’s outgrowing QuickBooks—such as lack of real-time tracking and the constant need to perform manual consolidations. Nonetheless, your team may feel it’s better to stick with the financial system they know than the one that they don’t.
As both your profits and customer base increase, your business gets more complex and the limitations of QuickBooks become even clearer. Given all the anxieties and technical hurdles to overcome, what can you do to do ensure a smooth transition to a cloud financial management system? Consider these two steps:
  1. Understand the challenges of migrating data from QuickBooks. If your master data is corrupt and non-standardized before and after the migration, you might not realize all the benefits of your new solution. You need a well-thought-out process to standardize data, thoroughly test it, and integrate it with your new system.
Unfortunately, cloud financial vendors might not be willing to assist with this process. In addition, the solution itself may not have the functionality to automatically clean up data imported from QuickBooks. And doing it yourself? Who wants to do manual data entry or perform time-consuming tasks better left to the professionals? =&4=& There’s a better, easier way to make the switch from QuickBooks. Turn to Trustantial, your
