If your problem is job costing or inventory or manufaturing or POS then
read on to discover the surprising truth about why you should NOT replace your
Have you ever been told to ditch your accounting software for a more
complex manufacturing or ERP system?
We used to believe that too.
After all that is what the big companies do. So surely a small to medium sized
manufacturer or service business in Australia would have to do the same?
But the problem is, to stay in business and compete for new customers and
price the work so you make a profit, you need ALL the inventory, job costing,
manufacturing, service and scheduling software capabilities not just the
financial ones. Actually your options
up to now have been rather limited. You either:
- 1. Install a
complete new ERP system across the
entire company which you don’t have the spare staff, cash and time for,
then hope and pray that your Chartered Accountant can use it!
- 2. Try and do
it yourself with paper
systems, spreadsheets and custom programs that typically only one person
can access. Then you discover further down the track that very human
problem “you know what you know but you don’t know what you don’t know”.
- 3. Do nothing which, as you know, is business
suicide. Not capturing critical business operations data is not going
to help you grow your business, it’ll actually destroy it.
That’s why we created a better way.
Business operations deal with the here and now whereas financial systems typically
deal with the past.
