Have You Outgrown Your Accounting System?: Stepping Up to Cloud Computing & FinancialForce.com


No matter the size of your company, every business is challenged by organizational, technological, and economic growth. The stages of a company’s maturity are fairly well defined—from start-up and small businesses to midsize businesses and multinationals. But it’s not always clear when a company moves from one stage to the next, and what steps need to be taken to support that growth.

This white paper describes the telltale signs that a company is ready to move on from software that covers basic accounting requirements to the next level—a progressive business system that can sustain growth for years to come. You’ll learn what to expect from such a system, and how business can change for the better.
