Why We Created This Blog For SMEs
Employing the service of an accounting software or ERP expert requires a careful analysis of their strengths and relevant implementation experience in several industries. In one of my posts, I shared tips on what questions you should ask your consultants before hiring one and how to know if they can deliver the customised solution you need to get your business accounting systems right.
Why I shared this useful guide is that there are lots of IT consultants who claim to be business technology solution expert and are being employed to install, implement and train SME staff but can’t set-up the appropriate chart of charts that generate the right reporting format due to zero accounting and bookkeeping bar ground.
Another issue is the influx of pirated copies in Nigeria. I remember when a small business owner who runs a fitness store with multiple warehouses called in for QuickBooks Enterprise 2015 price offer (10-users on a network). After sending the quote, I expected him to call back for onward bargaining which he actually did but to my surprise, he compared a quote of N855, 000 with N123, 000 received from another software seller in computer village, Nigeria.
I asked, How could someone crack QuickBooks Enterprise which is the most expensive of all QuickBooks software and resell for just N12, 000?
I shared this to reiterate my post on how to pick the best accounting software service, expert.
Another challenge is the lack of data file support and maintenance experts. I remember the case of an Auto sale, repair, and maintenance company in Lekki, Lagos. They bought QuickBooks Enterprise 2009 from a non-Accounting consultant in the same year. They were not told that upgrade is required every three (3) – four (4) years for data file security. In July 2015, they experienced a sudden data corruption which affected their six (6) years financial information and was almost wiped out. We had to send the company data file to QuickBooks for an upgrade to original software version before restoration was initiated. As you would expect, this cost them six figures: they had no option but to follow our advice.
