It is no surprise to us that Tom Kelly, Senior Director of Product Marketing for Oracle NetSuite, start’s his article on CPAPracticeAdvisor.com with, “Companies today realize they can no longer put up with the struggles of legacy accounting applications that don’t integrate with other vital software systems…”
In Kelly’s article, 3 Ways CFOs Can Accelerate Payback from New Technology, he also contends that unless top-level executives are driving a companies change to new technology and updated ERP/CRM systems, the integration most likely will fail. I think our experience with system integration is in complete agreement.

3 Ways CFOs Can Accelerate Payback from New Technology
By Tom Kelly, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Oracle NetSuite
Companies today realize they can no longer put up with the struggles of legacy accounting applications that don’t integrate with other vital software systems, with systems that leave finance personnel laboring with Excel workarounds and a slew of manual processes. It’s no longer acceptable to base critical business decisions on the often outdated or inaccurate information of these legacy systems.
Though many recognize that implementing a modern cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is an obvious answer — many that take start the transition are surprised by marginal improvements, slow user adoption, and unchanged processes that still rely on excel workarounds.
To ensure a smooth transition to cloud ERP, CFOs need to lead the charge. Executive sponsorship at the CEO and executive bench level is essential for organizations to realize full ERP’s benefits. It’s not strictly about using new technology — it’s also about executives driving a shift to a more digital, data-driven culture and ensuring that users embrace the new system.
