vs. QuickBooks

Why You Should Make the Switch

When You Need a
Complete System

You need software that allows your company to grow—something safe, secure, and scalable. Some of the simpler accounting software solutions out there make that kind of growth difficult—one of the reasons that people often switch from QuickBooks to TurningPoint Systems solutions.

It’s important to understand what QuickBooks and TurningPoint each do to understand how they serve your business. Along with a desire to increase efficiency, eliminate waste, and create time-saving workflow automations, there’s a desire to have something that allows for hoped-for growth that comes with a successful business enterprise.

Both QwikPoint from TurningPoint Systems and QuickBooks include features that can help with inventory monitoring. But QwikPoint was built specifically with distribution in mind, which means that the depth of its feature catalog is deeper and stronger than QuickBooks could ever be.

QwikPoint Overview

QwikPoint is specifically designed for companies who need to upgrade from a simple financial software system to an enterprise management system, one that can scale and support a warehouse management system (WMS) and also has sales force automation (SFA) capabilities.

QwikPoint allows distributors to fill orders faster and cut down on needless paperwork, allowing you to focus on staying competitive. QwikPoint is a specialized enterprise management system software solution for distributors of controlled and regulated products that track and trace products with complex regulatory and reporting requirements.

QwikPoint is safe, secure, reliable, and accessible from wherever you are on whatever device you’re using. And with decades of fine-tuning under the hood, TurningPoint software solutions have been engineered to be full of robust business features and inherently intuitive interfaces. Whether you’re starting from scratch or upgrading from another system, our U.S.-based support team will provide training, answer questions, and fully ensure that you’re able to take advantage of everything TurningPoint software solutions has to offer.

For companies merely looking for straightforward accounting software, QuickBooks might seem like a strong choice. But for companies looking to grow, who need software that supports warehouse inventory operations as well as robust accounting and analytics functionality, a fully realized ERP like QwikPoint is the clear winner.

QwikPoint vs. QuickBooks

Because of its pricing, QuickBooks is often a smart choice for young companies. Its focus on accounting measures allows companies to track and update their bills, expenses, and credits. Its features are built for monitoring and managing inventory, but it isn’t meant to match a full ERP system. Third-party applications offer some functionality in this area. Analytics rely on exporting and aggregating data from multiple sources.

QuickBooks offers online and desktop versions. As warehouse workflows become more and more important to a distribution company, QuickBooks offers only a limited range of usable software options. Mostly, it sticks to accounting and ledger operations.

QwikPoint, on the other hand, offers all kinds of functionality and tools for distributors. It tracks items through the purchasing, shipping, and delivery process. It offers an e-commerce platform, so users can shop around the clock. And it offers analytics, so you can see at a glance how your company is doing.

Why You Should Choose QwikPoint

For companies merely looking for straightforward accounting software, QuickBooks might seem like a strong choice. But for companies looking to grow, who need software that supports warehouse inventory operations as well as robust accounting and analytics functionality, a fully realized ERP like QwikPoint is the clear winner.
