When Should a Small Business Move From QuickBooks to True ERP? What’s the Next Step After QuickBooks?

By D1 Technologies, LLC

Based on discussions with hundreds of small businesses in NC, SC, TN, GA, AL, KY, VA,FL, IN, and MI and having migrated companies from QuickBooks (and other small accounting systems) to SAP Business One, their guideposts for a move can be any combination of the following:

  • The business is taking on more employees in roles such as sales, purchasing, and inventory control
  • The business has disparate sets of data, and is using spreadsheets to manage operational areas
  • The business is set to go public, and needs a system with more financial rigor and accountability than QuickBooks
  • The business needs more robust inventory management software
  • The business is preparing to offer online shopping as another sales channel and realizes the benefits of integrated eCommerce
  • The business is expanding to multiple locations
  • The business is going global and needs multi-currency capability
  • The system has become unstable and cannot handle the growing volume of data
  • Need more reporting flexibility

SAP Business One is a great next step in technology after QuickBooks for many small to midsize companies. It is a good fit for companies that are:


  • Engaged in wholesale distribution, consumer package goods, service, retail or light manufacturing
  • Company has annual revenues between $5 to $100 million
  • Company has employees between 1 and 100


The software is a good next step as it helps these companies manage an entire business end-to-end across sales, customers, purchasing, inventory, operations, financials and HR functions in an integrated system.

Learn more about the capabilities of SAP Business One.  It is offered as an on-premise deployment, or as a hosted or SaaS model.
