QuickBooks and Sage 50 are excellent products for small companies, but as your company continues
to grow, you may eventually need to consider moving to a more powerful solution. At Gain Focus Technologies, our mission is
to help our clients enhance their business processes through the implementation of technology solutions, making them more
efficient and profitable as a result. We can help you review your needs to see if you need to start looking to upgrade your
existing software solution.
The following are some danger singals that you are outgrowing or have already outgrown your existing solution:
are using a DOS based solution of any kind.
• You are using a "homegrown" solution where you are
at extreme risk if your programmer or in-house developer decides to pursue other employment, retire, etc.
You are experiencing data corruption errors such as btrieve error 002 in Sage 50 or you are required to run data verify and
rebuild too often in Quickbooks.
• You have a need for more than 5 - 10 users to be using the software simultaneously
and you must frequently have people log off of your software in order to perform certain tasks.
• You need
an eCommerce solution such as EDI or web-enabled ordering
that interfaces fully with your accounting software without the need for re-keying data.
• You are developing
the need for true manufacturing capabilities including material, machine and employee scheduling.
• You are
a pharmaceutical firm or some other type of firm that is developing a need or already has a need for advanced Serial and/or
Lot Tracking capabilities.
• You have multiple locations or employees that travel, but still need to access
• You have a need for a web portal as a repository of information, with appropriate security,
for your customers, vendors, employees and business partners.
If any of the above are true about your business, it may be time to consider alternatives.
