Financial murkiness: faulty software systems secretly increase cash flow

By: Angelique Toorians, 13 August 2023

Indeed, faulty and outdated software systems often lead to unclear financial processes, unnoticed increases in cash flow and even losses for your business. Accurate financial reporting and transparency are crucial for the proper functioning of any business.

How do you avoid such problems and make sure your systems are always 100% up to date?

Possible consequences of faulty and outdated software systems

Inaccurate data processing – With outdated or faulty software, the chances are very high that you cannot (continue to) meet the requirements of modern financial processes. The result is incorrect data processing, erroneous calculations, double entries, incomplete records or misallocations and misplaced transactions, resulting in inaccurate financial reports and analyses. In fact, you don’t know the real financial state of your business.

Security threats – With outdated software, the risk of security vulnerabilities affecting your system is very high. If systems are no longer supported with updates and patches, the risk of potential cyber attacks, unauthorised transactions and manipulation of data is very high. This inevitably leads to financial damage and loss.

Poor functionality – Inadequate and older software often lacks the advanced features you need for efficient financial planning, up to date bookkeeping and reporting, which results in making it very difficult to make accurate financial forecasts and strategic decisions. Without accurate and up-to-date financial data, doing business is impossible!

Waste of time – Old and faulty software systems are often slower and require more time to complete tasks. Result: inefficiency and extra costs due to extra working hours and operational delays. Or employees working around the system. Which costs even more time and increases the likelihood of errors.

Compatibility issues – Integrating legacy software with other modern systems is very difficult. Data cannot be integrated or may not be integrated correctly, resulting in inconsistent data. Different departments within your company are working with different data, causing problems in tracking financial transactions.

Missed opportunities – Modern (financial) software often offers opportunities for advanced analytics and data-driven decision-making. If you are still using outdated software, you will miss out on valuable insights, which in turn leads to missed opportunities, as well as financial growth and improvements.
