Why is it so hard to get good financial information?
It’s not you, but it could be your software.
Most major software packages today arose from the 1980s and the shift to Microsoft Windows. The most notable names, QuickBooks, Microsoft Dynamics, SAP and Oracle all pre-date the Internet.
The problem with these systems is that they weren’t designed for today’s always-on, always-connected users. And instead of being flexible and allowing companies to configure systems on the fly, these systems can require costly, permanent customization that only cause problems later when it is time for technology upgrade. This lack of flexibility also makes it difficult to get the reports you need, with the right information at the right time.
That is precisely why so many companies are held back by vendor lock-in—trapped in the past, struggling with old fashioned, outdated financial management and accounting software packages. And the fallout from using one of these older systems includes spiraling overhead costs, functional limitations, and unnecessary risks. What’s more, there’s a cost to not being able to gain real-time visibility into your organization’s financial and operational KPIs. It’s the cost of having your competitors make faster, better decisions than you.
