Each year, a QuickBooks desktop version stops receiving support from parent company Intuit, and this year, it’s 2018’s time to join the sunset list.

This isn’t much of an issue to those who typically switch to the latest update, but for professionals looking to switch to a more sophisticated, cloud-based accounting and resource planning software, this is the one.

According to NetSuite’s eBook “Eight Signs QuickBooks is Holding Your Business Back,” a cloud ERP like Oracle leads to smoother operating. As opposed to QuickBooks, which takes up too much of your time when it comes to managing spreadsheets and carrying out manual processes, NetSuite automates many of the rules.

Outdated software only leads to errors and inaccurate data, preventing stakeholders and employees from making informed decisions. But with a cloud-based platform like NetSuite, everyone has access to the data they need at all times. Everyone can make more informed, faster decisions, thanks to the built-in automated tools that weed out inefficiencies.

Carrying out manual processes on QuickBooks takes time and costs money, resulting in the loss of productivity altogether. The good news is that NetSuite automates any type of report pulling or data analysis to speed up the time to make decisions and deliver reports which can lead to more revenue.

By making data easily accessible, automating core functions, and ensuring proper controls, NetSuite allows entrepreneurs, business leaders, managers, and IT professionals to act quickly to changing conditions.

You no longer have to worry about getting slowed down by manual tasks or insufficient information. You can continue innovating your business, make more informed decisions, and achieve your goals.

If you’re looking for a sign to make the switch, let this be it. QuickBooks is just a stark reminder that times are changing, and you’re better off upgrading to a cloud ERP solution that is more suitable for today’s unpredictable work environment.
