Top three reasons to choose cloud accounting

Let’s face it, when you are running a business, there are some things that you’d just rather not get bogged down with.

You don’t want to be tied to your desk.

Accounting has got to be at the top of that list. Plenty of famous and very wealthy people have said, “Hire people who play at what you have to work at!”  Whether you hire someone to handle your finances, or you are doing it, why not make it fun, accessible, and easy!?

Cloud accounting is the way to go.  The format offers some fantastic benefits for your vibrant and growing business.  Whether you are the user or you’ve hired that person who plays at finances and accounting, they will really dig cloud accounting programs.

When someone is trying to sell me a service, my first question is, “What are the benefits?”.  How is cloud accounting going to ease my pain?

  • Accessibility.  The beauty of working on the cloud, is that it’s accessible to you anywhere at any time, all you need is the device used to communicate with the program!  If you are having dinner with your family and suddenly remember you forgot a wire transfer or a deposit needed to make Monday’s payroll, it’s right there at your fingertips, and you’re back at the table before the kids have eaten all of your dessert!
  • Safety and Security.  Gone are the days of clunky backup tapes, one for each day of the week.  When you’re working on the cloud, it’s all done for you, it’s safe, secured, and backed-up, so when your office floods, or the building is broken into and someone runs off with your computers, you haven’t lost your entire financial record bank.
  • Always up to date.  Software that you interact with from the cloud, is updated as necessary, at no inconvenience to you.  Most of the time, I’ll bet you are not even aware that it needs updating, but rather you are notified after it’s fresh and new, and ready to roll again.

The cloud brings an entirely new perspective to the phrase “doing business”.  Mobile phones and laptops have made it easier for us to take our work on vacation with us, or home with us, but those devices coupled with software available from anywhere with the simple login and password have made it possible for you to bring your business anywhere, and share it with anyone you need to!
