Learn why hiring a software consultant is good for business.
Are you thinking about purchasing new accounting software or upgrading from an existing one which your business has outgrown? This process can see like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be. As long as you put a detailed plan in place outlining what your business challenges and needs are, obtain the critical ‘buy-in’ from your staff and hire a knowledgable consultant to handle the implementation, the process will be easier than you think.
Getting to the point where you’re ready to trade in the traditional “off the shelf” accounting package you bought for something more intuitive and robust may be time consuming. Often times business owners don’t feel the looming need to fix something if it isn’t broken. Deciding to upgrade your accounting system isn’t to be taken lightly: it is a monumental decision that must be fully supported by all users to ensure maximum ROI.
So how do you know when your business is at the point where things need to change? The answer is as easy as 1-2-3. One – you’re existing program is not capable of handling the day-to-day operations seamlessly and without multiple steps. Two – time is being wasted on processes that can’t be handled quickly and efficiently such as proper inventory control and invoicing. Three – your business lacks a support system capable of handling all aspects of doing business such as accounting, distribution, manufacturing and payroll.
The next logical step once the decision has been made to upgrade or implement something brand new is to talk to a professional accounting software consultant. A good consultant will thoroughly assess your current business processes and list of challenges and needs and make a recommendation that is tailor made for your individual business. In addition he/she will not try to sell you additional products or services that you don’t need nor will they forget about you after the sale.
With the help of a knowledgable software consultant you will learn a lot about accounting programs through product comparisons and real life success stories. The software consultant that you choose should make sure that the learning curve for you and your staff is an easy one and they should offer a hands-on training program with an attentive approach to make the transition as smooth as possible. Warrior is proud to say that this is exactly what you will get if you choose us.
