Accounting system for Advertising Agency

I'm the Finance Director of a fast-growing advertising agency and we've outgrown Quickbooks. I'm looking for alternatives and open to any and all thoughts. Thank you

Advantage Software. Great value & service. Lot of options. Will grow with the company. Nothing will be as simple as QB but you will need controls, dashboards, timekeeping, Project/Client profitability, etc. Been a CFO in the AD world for many a year. Good luck.

We use Workamajig and have been happy with it. The software integrates project management, timesheets, sales, and billing in one software.

We've taken 4 growing companies of Quickbooks who were looking for a cost effective, scalable solution. These 4 companies chose Intacct, but the project started with a system selection process identifying requirements and conducting a gap analysis.

Intacct is a great option.

Tell us more about why you think you have outgrown QuickBooks.

(a) Maybe it's true - but a lot of people have wasted money upgrading before they needed to, when QuickBooks actally could handle more than they thought it could, and (b) it will be easier for your me and your other Proformative colleagues to recommend something when we know where you are limited and what capabilities you need.
