Migrate from QuickBooks to Microsoft Dynamics Business Central

Is your business expanding too fast to outgrow QuickBooks?
Migrate from QuickBooks to BC now with Addend Analytics!!!

QuickBooks (QB) is an accounting platform better suited to small and micro enterprises, whereas Dynamics 365 Business Central (Navision) is better suited to the more sophisticated needs of expanding small and mid-sized organisations. Many firms begin with QuickBooks and subsequently migrate to Business Central (Navision) as their accounting needs evolve!

Shortcomings of QuickBooks

QuickBooks has constraints on the number of records it can process and store in its archive, the number of employees it can hire, the number of transactions it can post, and so on. Once you've reached those limits, your only option is to begin deleting QuickBooks' history.

QuickBooks data is vulnerable to direct modification within the data tables due to an insecure file format. This enables “editing” of uploaded transactions after the fact, with no record of the modifications made. It even allows you to create out-of-balance transactions in your data (Credits do not equal Debits).

Purchase, inventory, manufacturing distribution, audit control, and advanced reporting capabilities are all lacking. It is costly to add features and service offerings from QuickBooks' partners.

The solution is skewed toward accountants, not business owners, due to the lack of business productivity integration.

QuickBooks' user and transaction constraints, as well as its restricted reporting features, can quickly become a bottleneck for businesses.
