I’m a firm believer that sales should be the only thing that dictates a company’s growth. Nothing else should be holding you back, especially not your accounting software. That’s why I wanted to provide you with this second look at QuickBooks Enterprise and show why it’s becoming the package I recommend most: it doesn’t stifle you with limits.
There are three big limiting factors that QuickBooks Pro and Premier impose on their users that a business in its growth phase, plus those reaching market maturity, should avoid. Here’s a quick look at how QuickBooks Enterprise can help you:
- Make the most of your data through better database processing.
- Improve your handling of larger data and report lists.
- Give everyone access to the information they need when they need it.
A More Robust Database
One of the chief reasons I recommend QuickBooks Enterprise is that it can handle a significantly larger database than QuickBooks Pro or Premier.
In Pro/Premier, the more vendors, files, transactions, items, and other components you added, the slower the software become. It often gets painfully slow for companies who have outgrown Pro/Premier but haven’t made the jump to QuickBooks Enterprise.
Enterprise can handle significantly higher volumes of information, and the cloud model provides you with the extra power you need to process it quickly and efficiently. Plus, you get a variety of tools that deliver deeper insights and more significant intelligence because they can access that larger, more robust dataset.
QuickBooks Enterprise allows you to avoid the need to archive portions of your existing data or start new files and risk missing out.
How can you have a robust look at your data across the life of your company when you must continually remove and change the lists you use? The limit of 14,500 active or inactive entries often causes QuickBooks Premier users to lose legacy data that could point to long-term trends in their business and their industry.
Maintain the robust data you need for these detailed analyses and have no worries with scaling your operations to new markets on new continents with the limit-free QuickBooks Enterprise.
Not only can QuickBooks Enterprise handle lists of customers and items that extend beyond 100,000 items, but it also has the speed and power to manage this quickly and efficiently, so slow reporting doesn’t delay your business.
Get the data you need when you need it. Speaking of which, QuickBooks Enterprise has other benefits related to overcoming hurdles for accessing your information.
Up to 30 Users
Many growing businesses can get stuck at the cap of 5 concurrent users that’s set in QuickBooks Premier. This often means they have to coordinate departments for reviewing financials, generating reports, and taking a closer look at their business intelligence.
Don’t stifle your team or limit your ability to access the data and reports you need. QuickBooks Enterprise can scale to up to 30 concurrent users so your accountants and individual team members can all look at the same data when they need it, or review it together during training and meetings.
