Cloud Accounting' is good for business

Cloud-based accounting software gives small businesses better tools, information and connections. It connects people with the right numbers anytime, anywhere, providing you with a better overview of your finances and improving collaboration with your team.

Cloud accounting software is similar to traditional, on-premises or self-install accounting software, except that the accounting software is hosted on remote servers. Data is sent into ‘the cloud’, where it is processed and returned to the user.

You can use cloud-based software from any device with an Internet connection, which enables small business owners to stay connected to their data and their accountants. Online accounting software can integrate with a whole ecosystem of add-ons and there’s no need to install and run applications over a desktop computer. This means that it’s scalable, cost effective and easy to use.

The cloud is also one of the most secure ways to store information. If, for example, your laptop is stolen, no one can access your data unless they have a login to the online account. This is where the data lives rather than on your hard drive. And if you invite users to view your data, you can control their level of access. This is much more secure than emailing files.

In the event of a natural disaster or fire, business productivity doesn’t have to be affected because there’s no downtime. Being in ‘the cloud’ means that all your information is safely and securely stored off-site. Provided that you have access to any computer or mobile device that is connected to the Internet, you’re back up and running.

We can be involved as much or as little as you need. The benefit of being cloud-based software means collaboration can take place from anywhere with an Internet connection, on any device. No time wasted, or added expense downloading or copying information to send to your accountant.

Contact our business centre team to see how we can help you in going with a suitable Cloud Based programme.
