Assess Accounting Software Needs
FayeBSG’s accounting software consultants have been brought into many environments to help figure out how to take that next step. Sometimes this involves a review of existing systems. During this process, we evaluate the available computer accounting software in the marketplace for its applicability to a particular business.
Other times we perform what we call a “needs assessment” to figure out what the business truly needs and determine whether or not the existing accounting software is actually supporting the overall goals of the business.
How many business people truly look at their software as an asset and as something that can enhance the profitability of the business? It’s time to take a long look at your current software setup and find out if it’s pulling its weight. Proper accounting software can make a world of difference in company profits.
Intacct’s cloud based accounting system may be the perfect solution for your new requirements. As economic, market and technology changes evolve at an ever increasing rate it is apparent that business systems need to adapt to these changes to ensure their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems keep up with the demand and changes. Being left behind can be a costly and detrimental to the bottom line of any business.
Cloud ERP frees businesses from the brittle, inflexible ERP of the past that resists change. It means that businesses get the latest innovations automatically – from new features to support for the latest regulations. No more waiting, no more costly upgrades, no more upgrade risk. No more outdated ERP.
The Big Four:
- Increase Revenues
- Decrease Costs
- Increase Market Share
- Enhance Company Morale
If your existing systems aren’t helping to address one of the big four business needs, then we believe the systems aren’t doing their jobs. They must help in one of these ways. We work with our clients to make sure they do.
Implement Technology Solutions
After new software is selected by our clients, we help our clients implement it. This is a process we perform very thoroughly: there is little sense in buying software if it is not going to be implemented correctly.
The implementation process is very detailed and includes planning (typically this is the most critical part), installation of the software, software configuration, staff training, data conversion, enhancements or upgrades, reports production, form development, testing, and a variety of other tasks. Each of these tasks is instrumental for a successful software launch.
In addition to simply implementing software, we also customize this implementation. Customized computer software is personalized for the unique needs and desires of your company.
Generally, software is developed for the masses. This would be fine if every company had the same wants and requirements and was producing the same service or product. But, since all companies are different, software must adapt to them. Our consultants can help you customize and enhance your software so that it fits with your business like a key to a lock.
At Faye Business Systems Group, Inc., we believe a successful implementation can be demonstrated by simply asking one question: “Is your business better off with this software?” Our consultants work to make this answer, “Yes.”
After the software is implemented, our job is not over. We offer substantial and ongoing support regardless of where you are based. In addition to ongoing ad hoc support, we also offer unlimited annual support contracts for accounting software support.

Configure Your Accounting Software for Optimal Performance
One of the most overlooked and misunderstood areas in all of consulting is the area of optimizing existing computer software. Sometimes, a company or employee may have effective solutions literally at their fingertips, but they simply might not know it. For instance, they may have highly effective accounting technology but not know how to properly use it or how to utilize all its functionality. This is where our accounting software consultants come in.
In today’s competitive environment, businesses that customize how they use their software have an advantage over the people who are not optimizing or who are doing so ineffectively. Customization and optimization do not have to mean source code changes or drastic measures. Rather, it can mean developing custom reports, streamlining processes and procedures to minimize manual work, eliminating duplicate work, ensuring that critical information will be provided quickly, and basically using technology to its fullest.
Accounting technology that is not customized is designed to fit a mold that your company may not suit. It may have tools you will never utilize while lacking things you greatly need. Customized accounting technology solves this problem: your company is unique, and your software should be as well.
No matter the type of accounting technology you use, our accounting software consultants can assist with optimization. We can customize existing software as well as new software prior to implementation.
Give us a call today and see how we can help make your software, your business, and your employees more effective and more efficient. Come see why optimized software leads to optimized businesses.
