Outgrowing Quickbooks? Move to Microsoft Dynamics GP

“QuickBooks is the world’s most popular small business accounting system with a reported more than 3.5 million users. There is no denying the success of this product. For the money, QuickBooks provides a good value and a reasonable assortment of features to meet the needs of small and entry level businesses. While QuickBooks offers a good entry-level solution, it has limitations that prevent the product from meeting the needs of many companies and organizations – especially growing companies and larger organizations. Specifically, QuickBooks is missing more than a thousand features compared to most mid-range solutions and the QuickBooks database slows down dramatically as the volume of transactions and master record lists increase.

 As a general rule, you are beginning to outgrow QuickBooks when you notice an unacceptable delay in the menus and screens when navigating QuickBooks, or when reports take an unacceptable amount of time to print. As a general rule, most companies using QuickBooks start to notice a decline in QuickBooks performance once the file size reaches 30MB or the total number of transactions exceeds 32,000(1). However, while these measures can be good predictors of performance issues, file size and transaction volume are not the best indicators of impending performance problems. In QuickBooks, the number of customers, vendors, employees and other lists most dramatically affect performance. QuickBooks support acknowledges that significant performance problems generally occur when any list exceeds 10,000 – however, as a practical matter most companies see performance issues far earlier. For example, with each added employee, QuickBooks launches slower, and only a few hundred employees on a list can lead to unacceptable performance issues.

In conclusion, while QuickBooks is a good entry-level product, its database shortcomings and lack of features make it possible for companies to quickly outgrow QuickBooks. When your business needs change and you are looking outside the Intuit family of products, you may wish to consider Microsoft Dynamics GP. Microsoft Dynamics GP offers competitive pricing, support, conversion tools and product designed to help QuickBooks users step up to a more powerful business management system that will meet your needs for many years to come.”
