Are you unsure if you need a new ERP? Here are the top five reasons your company needs a new ERP.

The world we live in is dramatically changing thanks to technology. Here at TRI Solutions and EIS, we want your business to keep up with the fast-paced economy and we believe we found the right solution for you. Acumatica is state-of-the-art ERP software that will integrate your business into a cloud based system with easy access from your phone, tablet, or computer. If you are still debating about getting a new ERP system, such as Acumatica, consider the reasons below:

1. You use multiple software platforms to run your day to day business
Are there times when you need data from your accounting group about the delivery and inventory departments and your accountant has to go into two different software’s to retrieve that information? This can easily be solved by switching to Acumatica. With Acumatica, your company will have a cloud based server that displays dashboards of all the data you need to know about your company, minimizing your search from two platforms to one.

2. You are using out of date software such as Quickbooks
Quickbooks has been around since the 1980s, so we know you have developed a loyalty over the years.. But, there are limits to Quickbooks, and if you are growing, you are most likely hitting them. Quickbooks only assists the accounting department and does not show data for all the other departments. Acumatica will display the data you need about each department in your business (accounting, finance, operations, etc) and gets you the information you need whenever you need it.

3. You are receiving the annual report about the previous year that ended 6 months ago
Accountants work hard to keep up with the business and try to turn in reports on time, but errors occur and consolidation takes time, so reports can get turned in late. This is no longer the case with Acumatica. This software will always display real time data so you are always aware of what is happening within your business.

4. Your current ERP system shows you dashboards that you do not understand
Most ERP systems display dashboards created by the software company and your business has to adapt to them and this can be frustrating. Acumatica gives you the opportunity to create your own custom dashboards that display the information you believe is important to maintaining your business. TRI Solutions and EIS will provide teams to help you create dashboards and we will teach you how to use them effectively.

5. You don’t even own an ERP system
If your business is growing dramatically and you do not have an ERP System, then it is time to get one ASAP. ERP systems, like Acumatica, can help your business grow dramatically and will give your company the information you need to develop quickly and efficiently. An ERP system is pivotal to integrate your company and have easy access to real time data about your various departments.
