So What’s So Great About Cloud Accounting?


You hear everyone going on about the cloud.

It seems like the cloud is a solution to most things, but is it really a good tool to use for your accounting? After all, you are making a decision about arguably one of the most important aspects of your business. The answer, in short, is yes. Here are 5 reasons why we believe cloud accounting trumps any other method.

No software installation

Say goodbye to expensive, lengthy software updates. The cloud is instant and requires no installation setup. Most cloud software charges on a monthly basis, which is also much better for cash flow.

Always a current copy

The cloud always contains the most up-to-date copy. In the past, with other options, your accountant would always be working on a more recent version than you had or vice versa. With the cloud, you are always both looking at the latest copy. You and your accountant can both log in at the same time and discuss the matter in hand.

It doesn’t crash

Unlike clunky installed software, the cloud doesn’t crash. That’s all really; it really is that amazing

Accessible anywhere

At home, in the office or on the other side of the world, it doesn’t matter where you are, the cloud allows you to access your accounts from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

 No need to worry about backups or loss of files

No backup and no lost data. You can save your work instantly to the cloud. Have you ever done so much work and then forgotten to save it? Or it gets lost? It has happened to the best of us, but now the best of us has moved to the cloud.

A paperless solution for your accountancy
