You started your business with an idea, a concept, a product or a service that you believed in — then you went out and made it happen. You called on customers, built products, performed services and worked your tail off to make your customers happy. You hired associates, built factories and invested time and sweat, worked nights and weekends — because you knew you could do it better than your competitors. And it worked.

Maybe somewhere along the way you picked up a copy of QuickBooks or Peachtree Pro. It did the job and provided financials. But now you have a bunch of customers and inventory to manage, bills of material, cost accounting and production planning, then there’s purchasing and vendor management — and these solutions just aren’t cutting it any more.
