    Hidden Dangers

    Over the years, more and more companies are growing far past the design point of QuickBooks. Risk, Staff Inefficiencies and simple lack of features all add up to hidden costs far in excess of what it would take to upgrade to ERP

    ABOUT THIS EPISODE







    Years ago, it was very uncommon to see any company over $100k in annual revenue using QuickBooks.  Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks has certainly improved the product and some of the entry level accounting packages have suffered from a mass consolidation of the local VAR’s and resellers who once served the emerging company market.



     



    Today, there’s a point – say a $5m company, where QuickBooks becomes extremely cumbersome – lack of inventory, project based features, retail and ecommerce, the list goes on – sure – there’s lots of add ons and 3rd Party products – but features in these follow on products are limited because no one is going to pay $10k to add onto a $300 program – so you can only develop and deliver so much on limited budgets. Yet companies go forward, developing workarounds and it’s not uncommon to see $50m and $60m companies running on good ol’ QB.



     



    Risk is an issue. Later versions of QuickBooks have added things like keystroke logs and segregation of duties protocols – but these are seldom set up ...

    ABOUT THIS EPISODE







    When the Coronavirus closed offices and sent workforces into virtual lockdown, of course a cloud-based ERP like NetSuite was a definite advantage. But there was more to the story, as Oracle NetSuite’s Angela Kavanaugh reports from her portfolio of customers. “I’m so glad we’re at least on NetSuite” were common reactions in the early days of the pandemic.  While traditional technology-based offices were scrambling to roll out VPN’s and secure protocols to get workers back up and running, NetSuite users were rolling out business process changes to better connect and serve their customers.  This flexibility highlights the real power behind digital companies, uniquely positioned to react to a market none of us had seen coming.

    It’s the ERPodcast Version Mayhem.  For the past few weeks, we’ve been doing a couple of things. One, working with as many sources and collecting as much information as we can to help our clients survive the Coronavirus lockdown and thrive in the business environment to come. Two, we’ve been creating a digital transformation of our own – relaunching the Profit From ERP concept, offloading our past business model in exchange for a more concept that focuses on what we do best, emphasizing our strengths and partnering with others who can do a better job in areas that used to bog us down. There’s new podcasts, white papers, websites, digital tools, analytic developments, as well as broader partnerships and alliances - all digitally connected and delivered with one thing in mind – to better serve our clients – companies who are looking for the Best ERP  - and what is the Best ERP? It’s the one that best solves a client’s problems. The number one problem – uncertainty. Certainly, during the Coronavirus pandemic. If that weren’t challenge enough, Now we’re facing huge unrest in the country with urban protests and riots.



    So what it boils down to is CHANGE is happening at lightning speed. Digital Transformation creates companies who can change rapidly and shift on a dime. And with all this change, can your business afford to remain static?  Big Question. A lot depends on it. We’ll talk about it today.



    Another business trick I learned some years ago – go find the smartest guy in the room, stand next to him and shut up. People will walk away talking about those two brilliant guys they just met and my contribution to that impression consists mostly of smiling and nodding.  So today we’re bringing in a brilliant guy, Bhushan Parikh from a company called Get Digital Velocity.  Bhushan’s been at the VP/CIO – that’s Chief Information Officer level of some key companies in the past. He’s been working with leading teams of strategically excellent companies for years. His expertise stretches across generations of technology of all types – and his company, Get Digital Velocity helps mid-market companies like yours re-examine strategic and tactical approaches to digital transformation – he’ll be telling you all about it – I’ll mostly be smiling and nodding – on this week’s episode of the ERPodcast  - digital transformation -  one more way you can Profit From ERP – I’m Gene Hammons



     



    Today’s Episode is being jointly sponsored by Get Digital Velocity and Profit From ERP. You may have heard me speaking about the Alliance of Excellence Software Coalition – a loose federation of business software providers who’ve proven themselves over the years as reliable and trusted advisors as well as talented implementors and service delivery teams.



    Different companies have different business requirements and the consulting team that says they can do it all is pretty much where they came up with that saying ‘jack of all trades, master of none’.



    When it comes to an ERP project, there’s different levels of activity. There’s the basic, what does this ERP do. But there’s also change management – strategic planning – marketing awareness – even as far as changing the company’s overall strategy.



    Some people are asking for a simple direction, which ERP packages should we look at. Others need more – how do we make this system pay for itself – and yet some of our clients want senior level adviser, up to and including a fractional CIO – a senior technology executive to fill a top level role – and that’s where we partner with Get Digital Velocity.



    Here’s the thing, whatever your company, whatever your requirements, we can build a team to help y

    Episode 13 – Unlucky for Traditional ERP

    Late May 2020, as the business world emerges post covid-19 – what are the lessons we take forward – what are the initiatives for an uncertain future – where do we find the tea leaves, the tarot cards, the stock tips, the market whispers – where do we go from here? Given this production is named the ERPodcast from Profit From ERP – you can imagine what direction we’ll take the topic….



    Most of the information we’re given these days emanates from the Pandemic Panic – and as any good economist knows, the   numbers can lie   and often do - - - especially when our source of information is a media rewarded for sensationalism for sensationalism’s sake  - - – so we need to look deeper, find the success stories, actual business cases, find the moneyball concepts, the underlying economic theories that we can bring into our daily business lives – so today, On the ERPodcast we’ll take a look at one of the greatest supply chain stories our national media ever ignored. In the software consulting world, we’ve been working non-stop gathering information to guide our clients. Nationally, Thousands of companies experience in today’s market has been compiled. Regionally, hundreds of client companies have added input -  that mirrors the research we’ve done through our Profit From ERP website. Let’s breakout a few of the winning strategies - It’s the ERPodcast and I’m your host, Gene Hammons, telling you nothing you don’t already know, just in a way, you might not quite have thought of it before.



     



     



    The Alliance of Excellence



     



    Today’s Podcast is brought to you by the Alliance of Excellence Software Coalition – a loose federation of software resellers, partners, consultants and resources who share one thing in common. They’re all really good at what they do.



    You know, I’ve been in the ERP business for a long time  - seen a lot of things and people come and go. When I’ve worked on a very successful ERP engagement – the kind where the software pays for itself in short order?  I remember those folks – the partners who implemented and did such a good job and I look forward to working with them again and again.  So today, with Profit From ERP, we’re not selling software, we’re not doing implementations – we’re simply helping make sure our clients get the Profit, or the return from their investment in ERP. We don’t sell the software, we don’t sell the services, we simply sell the Profit from ERP – so we have to work with the best in order to give every engagement the potential to work. And another thing about ERP – there’s a great fit for nearly every ERP platform, Infor, Sage, Microsoft, NetSuite, Acumatica, Intacct – I could go on listing for a while. But the point is, with our clients, whatever ERP they need, we’ve likely got an Alliance of Excellence company to work with. .



    How does an ERP partner or reseller join the Alliance of Excellence Software Coalition?



    There’s only one way.  Personal Experience with Gene Hammons and past Experience with Profit From ERP clients. If it sounds exclusive, it is. But it means you end up with the best.



    Our job is to connect clients who are planning to improve their business through ERP with the right partners, the right ERP platform. Different industries, different sized clients, different budgets – the fit is the thing.  It really doesn’t matter which software you pick, unless you have a good partner, well, there’s a lot of reasons the industry sports an 80% failure rate.  So if you’re thinking about a successful ERP project, connect with us at Profit From ERP, and when it’s time to pull the trigger, make sure one of the members of the Alliance of Excel
