The advent of the new year typically brings with it a strong desire for change. Most people want to better their lives, want to try new experiences and want to fix old habits. Unfortunately, most don’t follow through with those grand aspirations. For many of us, the New Year’s resolutions made in January typically fall by the wayside in March.

 

But business owners and large organizations can’t afford to be so apathetic. The New Year for them means financial planning and forecasting. The need to figure out the direction their organization is headed. This year, many people will be looking for ways to get a financial advantage. Some of them will make the switch to Enterprise Financial Software. Perhaps you are considering doing so as well. If so, wonderful! But there are a lot of options for software out there, and you may not be sure which one is right for you. To help you out, here are three issues that a good ERP should solve for you.

 

Adaptability

One of the biggest hurdles for business forecasting software is whether or not it allows your organization to react quickly. Every year brings surprises to the market.  An unexpected event can drastically affect smaller organizations. Small businesses and non-profits need adaptability in order to adjust their budget if need be. It could make all the difference when it comes to keeping the lights on. If you feel the program you’re using locks you in too much and is too inflexible to adjust, you probably want to find a different program.

 

Ease-of-Use

Spreadsheets are the go-to for financial forecasting, and are notoriously frustrating to deal with. We have spoken at length  before about why spreadsheets just don’t cut it in today’s accounting world. They’re a hassle, and extremely outdated! When making the switch to enterprise financial planning software, make sure what you’re using isn’t as frustrating as those outdated models. Enterprise budgeting software needs to be easy for you to pick up, easy to teach to others, and easy to present. It’s almost 2018, so isn’t it time we stop making things harder for ourselves?

 

Streamlined, with less IT

Part of having a program that is easy to use is making sure it is easy to set up and unlikely to crash. Quality assurance is a must here, because you don’t want to have to call your IT team in every other day. A streamlined design that is easy to manage saves you time and stress, and a quality program will save your IT teams from frustrating headaches.
