Symptoms of a Company Looking for the Best Alternatives to Quickbooks
Recently, I spoke with a wholesale distribution company and every time they would create an invoice, it would take QuickBooks seven minutes to load it. To deal with this, they would go outside and take a break. Imagine dealing with 100's of orders a week and having to wait seven minutes each time. That 11 hours of wasted time, every week, just waiting for Quickbooks to process. Their large inventory was overloading the application and it would come to a grinding halt.
