If you’re running more than one software application, which is true for most companies, and these disparate programs don’t talk to each other, you have a problem. It’s called duplicate data entry and it’s tedious, time consuming, and costly.
Based on my experience chatting with hundreds of prospective clients over the last 10 years, the #1 reason for moving up to Microsoft is that they’re currently entering the same information two, three, four or more times. Once in an accounting system, once in a contact management system, once in a standalone payroll system, yet again in an inventory system. Perhaps their fixed assets is a standalone application. Or time and expense tracking. Do the math. How many employees are being paid to enter the same data in multiple databases.
And the nightmare doesn’t end there. If you have a client, ABC Company, entered in several places and they move, heaven forbid! How do you make sure their new address is changed in all of the different places it resides?
The cure will cost money, I won’t deny that. But in pretty short order you’ll recover the cost of new software by saving the incredible amount of money you’re spending to have several employees entering the same data in multiple locations.
There are 2 parts to the cure I’m proposing. First, Microsoft Dynamics GP right out-of-the-box is an all in one accounting, fixed assets, payroll, inventory, manufacturing, and distribution system. So you’re already way ahead of the game. But if you still have some very industry specific programs that you don’t want to give up, not a problem. Because, the second part of the cure is the fact that Microsoft Dynamics GP can integrate with just about any application you’re running.
