While QuickBooks software by Intuit is a necessity for many startup companies that can't afford an expensive accountant, there comes a time when something that handles more complex tasks is necessary. A business that outgrows QuickBooks and doesn't update its software will find itself losing ground to the competition until it shifts gears and gets a more robust platform.

Your company may be in danger of slowing itself down by staying with the software, but how do you know you have outgrown QuickBooks?

Multiple Locationshow do you know you have outgrown QuickBooks

One of the biggest signs is that your company is too large and complex for the software to handle. If you need to account for multiple warehouses, independent retail stores, etc., QuickBooks likely can't track everything individually while also putting all the relevant information into one report.

Monetary Variables

If you run variables in your payment formulations, such as adding bonuses and commissions on sales, QuickBooks has a tough time tracking all of them. Other variables that QuickBooks can't handle are determining a location's profitability separating sales into their regional markets.

Complexity of Government Forms & Regulations

Do you deal with the complexity of government forms and regulations on a frequent basis? QuickBooks is great at interpreting specific data, but it doesn't have the capacity to handle the regulatory needs of multiple departments.

Multiple Users

If you have numerous users logging in and out of the system and entering data throughout the day, you're inviting the chance of data corruption and other mistakes to occur because the extremely high volume of information can overwhelm QuickBooks.
