6 QuickBooks metrics every small business needs to track on their accounting dashboard

QuickBooks Metrics for Small Business

As an accountant, you have your fingers on the financial pulse of the business, which is why you use QuickBooks. That’s why others rely on you to share insights on the company’s historical trends, present state and future financial trajectory. An accounting dashboard can make your insight a whole lot easier to communicate, transforming you from just the numbers person to a business superhero.

One reason why many small businesses fail after only a few years is because owners use “gut feelings” when making important decisions. But when you connect your accounting data to an interactive dashboard, you’ll give your team insight on all aspects of the business: revenue, sales, expenses, historical trends and more. If you let your business reach the next phase of growth armed with a financial dashboard, your team will never have to make decisions in the dark again.
