9 Reasons to switch from Quickbooks to NetSuite

Quickbooks is a starter system for small businesses that quickly makes the business run but NetSuite is much more. See why…

Introduction

As you expand, you recruit more staff, process more data, and demand greater automation as the number of clients increases. You need an efficiency-boosting accounting software solution that serves as the framework for your increasingly complex business.

With QuickBooks, businesses for particular reasons have to rely on more applications; revenue management, fixed assets, procurement, order management, billing, inventory management, distribution of services, and more. And if these systems are not integrated, the accounting department would have to manage half a dozen different applications and human errors resulting from transferring and merging data between different services, each with its own configurations and end-to-end processes, and you would have to add staff to handle it all.

With SuiteSuccess Financials First, migrating clients from QuickBooks to NetSuite is easy. Think about existing requirements and scalability while deciding whether it’s time to update. And think about your long-term business goals before deciding on financial accounting software. QuickBooks might act as a quick fix, but would it satisfy your needs during growth seasons?

Quickbooks Limitations

Quickbooks is a starter system for small businesses that quickly makes the business run as it manages the financials (Payables, Receivables, etc.)

As the business grows, the starter system functionality is not enough at all and the following points clarify some pain points of Quickbooks:

  • Manual Data Collection

When you deal with Quickbooks, forcing workers to enter and exchange their data (sales orders, invoices, budgets, timesheets, etc.) manually in spreadsheets is always the case. That is time-consuming and can lead to mistakes.

  • Poor Reporting

The need for full real-time insight into the business process is also growing as the organization expands. When using spreadsheets for data collection, real-time reporting about the organization in Quickbooks is almost impossible.

  • One Company, One Country, and One Currency

Multiple subsidiaries and foreign currencies are not covered by Quickbooks. Quickbooks would make it harder to handle market growth internationally.

  • Basic Inventory Management

Quickbooks provides only simple stock functionality when it comes to inventory management. There is no serialized inventory monitoring, for example.

  • Limited Scalability

Specific industry needs are not supported by Quickbooks. It is designed to be a standard system of accounting.

Why You Should Pick NetSuite

NetSuite provides a complete solution for financial management that increases efficiency and decreases the need to add to the headcount as the financial needs of the company to become more varied and complex. NetSuite comes with pre-configured KPIs, workflows, reminders, and interactive dashboards that display precisely how operations and accounting processes match and what needs to be done, rather than just a list of accounting information. Here are some features that empower NetSuite over Quickbooks:

  • Revenue Recognition

NetSuite helps accounting teams to comply with revenue recognition standards and plan revenue to be recognized automatically if a sales transaction consists of a single event, a sequence of actions over a period of time, or multiple forms of deliverables in a package. In real-time, financial statements and forecasts are reliable and revised.

This is particularly useful for software and service companies dealing with various deliverables that involve accounting teams to identify and monitor revenue at various points in time, such as updates, services offered over time, or additional licenses. QuickBooks can create creative workarounds for the limitations, but workarounds eventually produce a morass of manual journal entries, complex spreadsheets for the acknowledgment plan, and unclear or non-existent visibility forward.

Whether a sales transaction consists of a single action, a series of actions across a period of time, or different types of deliverables in a bundle, NetSuite enables accounting teams to comply with revenue recognition requirements and schedule revenue to be recognized automatically. Financial statements and forecasts are accurate and updated in real-time.

This is especially helpful for software and services companies dealing with multiple deliverables—such as upgrades, services delivered over time, or additional licenses—that require accounting teams to recognize and defer revenue at different points in time. QuickBooks can construct clever workarounds for the limitations, but workarounds inevitably generate a morass of manual journal entries, complicated recognition schedule spreadsheets, and unclear or nonexistent forward visibility.

  • Capital Investment

It’s important to be able to monitor your funding while you’re pursuing capital investment. When considering investing in your company, potential investors will need access to your financial statements, and they will also set you debt agreements and revenue targets to benchmark how much debt you should have and how much working capital you need.

When you’re seeking capital investment, it’s essential to be able to track your funding. External investors will need access to your financial statements when considering investing in your company and they will also set you debt covenants and revenue goals to benchmark how much debt you can have, as well as how much working capital you require.

  • Multiple Subsidiaries and Acquisitions

The ability to incorporate new systems will become essential for entering new markets as you hit new levels of business opportunities.

Fortunately, NetSuite gives you the power to extract and exchange data automatically from the cloud with your departments. All of this can be personalized, too. NetSuite’s advanced features allow users to configure permissions, ensuring there is no sharing of unnecessary data.

  • CRM and E-Commerce

You need an integrated business structure that centralizes accounting, order management, customer relationship management (CRM), and e-commerce, all in the cloud, to execute growth strategies and make your company become the main competitor in your industry. Essentially, you are equipping the organization with a number of different resources that would not have been available with a starter system when making the transition from Quickbooks to NetSuite.

Your team can quickly and effectively access customer information and respond to customers within record time if the entire organization has access to the same customer information and transactions. It also makes it possible for the sales team to spot opportunities

In order to implement the growth strategies and have your company become a key competitor in your industry, you need an integrated business system that centralizes accounting, order management, customer relationship management (CRM), and eCommerce, all in the Cloud. Essentially, when making the switch from Quickbooks to NetSuite, you’re equipping your business with a variety of different tools that would not have been available with a starter system.

Take for example Brex, a fintech company that switched to NetSuite in preparation for entering markets in new countries. While running on QuickBooks and Excel, company leaders had to manually pull monthly depreciation and amortization reports from spreadsheets.

Now, “it’s just a one-button push for the month-end process,” says controller Kevin Moore.

Brex also uses NetSuite to ensure it’s meeting global accounting and compliance standards while delivering corporate credit cards to startups.

On the other hand, the drawbacks of QuickBooks mean that businesses for particular reasons have to layer on more structures or applications: revenue control, fixed assets, procurement, order management, billing, inventory management, distribution of services, and more. These carry in expenses. And if these systems are not integrated, the financial workers must manage half a dozen different applications and risk mistakes attempting to transfer and merge data between different services, each with its own configurations and end-to-end processes, and you would have to add staff to handle it all.

On the other hand, QuickBooks’ limitations mean companies have to layer on more systems or applications for specific purposes: revenue management, fixed assets, procurement, order management, billing, inventory management, services delivery, and more. These add costs. And if these systems aren’t integrated, your finance staff must maintain half a dozen different applications and risk errors trying to transfer and consolidate data amongst disparate programs, each with its own configurations and end-to-end processes—and you’ll have to add personnel to manage it all.

“There’s an inflection point where the systems you’re using just won’t work,” says Sy Gray, co-founder of the widely popular Honey Pot Company, a consumer packaged goods retailer.

Gray and his co-founder tried, through consultants, to integrate their company’s order details with QuickBooks so they could meet the EDI requirements of big-name retailers like Target. After many failed efforts—and racking up costs, with the prognosis of more—the company switched to NetSuite.

During these 23 years of local and international experiences and education, Mostafa had realized that; most of the IT projects failed due to the lack of business goals that tightly linked to the technology products. This usually happens due to the focus on the technology project’s deliverables and neglecting the business’s value of it.

Mostafa and a team of IT experts shared the same vision of establishing a business that focus on bridging the gaps among business goals, technology requirements, and the projects deliverables. That was the idea that incorporated Haya Solutions on October 1st, 2014 by a team that believed in the same vision.
