Why Cloud Accounting is Good For Business.
Let Us Introduce You to Xero.
Accounting software shouldn’t be a chore to use
Small business accounting software that’s not available via the cloud can be tedious. Traditionally, it can suck up far too much of your business’ time and effort. This doesn't add value, and takes the fun out of being in business. Cloud software can save your business time and money.
If you want your business to work smarter and faster, cloud accounting software is a wise investment. Working in the cloud will give you a better overview of your finances, and improve collaboration with your team.
Problems with traditional accounting software
The data in the system isn’t up-to-date and neither is the software.
It only works on one computer and data bounces from place to place. For example, on a USB drive. This is not secure or reliable.
Only one person has user access. Key people can't access financial and customer details.
It's costly and complicated to keep backups (if done at all).
It's expensive, difficult and time-consuming to upgrade the software. Customer support is expensive and slow.
Five ways cloud software benefits your business
You have a clear overview of your current financial position, in real-time.
Multi-user access makes it easy to collaborate online with your team
Worry-free maintenance means you can spend more time doing what you love.
Everything is run online, so there’s nothing to install and everything is backed up automatically. Updates are free and instantly available.
Upfront business costs are reduced – version upgrades, maintenance, system administration costs and server failures are no longer issues. Instead, they are managed by the cloud service provider.
Work smarter with accessible data in the cloud
The beauty of this software is the flexibility it gives you to run your business from work, home, or on the go. You can be confident that you have an up-to-date picture of how your business is doing, no matter where you are.
Software updates can be developed and delivered faster and more easily in the cloud. This means you don’t need to worry about installing the latest version and you’ll get access to new features instantly. With cloud accounting software, you have the option to run your business remotely, from anywhere in the world. When data is fluid and accessible, the possibilities are endless.
