Choose Wisely Now; Avoid Pitfalls in the Future

If you find your small to mid-sized company’s needs have outgrown its entry-level accounting software, a new enterprise resource planning or ERP system can help you map out a future for your company that is focused on growth. If you don’t choose carefully, you could get locked into a product that will cost time and money as it ages and distract you from managing and growing your business. With an agile solution, like Microsoft Dynamics GP from Accountnet, you can adapt quickly and cost-effectively as your business needs change and new technologies emerge.

Make sure that the vendors you’re talking to have a long-term vision for the products they recommend. Ask them to explain how they might roll out new releases. Look for vendors and products with a history of consistent product releases and technology advancements, like Microsoft.  Ask to see a technology roadmap and don’t be afraid to challenge them on how they will implement it for their clients.
