Is This Your Situation: Trying to Streamline Your Business with Cloud-Based Accounting


Cloud-based software, also known as software as a service, allows users to access accounting technology on a subscription basis. The software provider securely hosts all necessary databases and servers, and small-business owners use an Internet connection to access their data anytime, anywhere.

Today, small-businesses can benefit from an ever-growing suite of organizational tools and technologies that reduce the challenges owners face when managing invoices, bills and receipts while also increasing the time available to pursue new business opportunities. The even better news is that these tools are increasingly available as cloud-based offerings. These are just some of the many reasons why small businesses should seriously consider shifting their accounting workflows to these cloud-based solutions.

Whenever you access banking information online, you’re already using the cloud. Cloud-based accounting can help your business thrive in several ways:

  • Traditional accounting software quickly becomes obsolete, whereas cloud-based solutions are updated regularly.
  • Traditional software typically works on only one computer, and any transfer of data (via a USB drive, for example) is not secure or reliable. Cloud-based accounting software allows small business owners and accountants to share information in real time.
  • Cloud-based accounting ensures that you have up-to-date accounting services available 24/7, which is essential not just at tax time but throughout the year.
  • Cloud-based accounting services enable business owners to maintain their business finances in good form and also provide advice on virtually every financial aspect of running and growing a company, such as projected earnings and developing new income streams. 

Small business owners should consider these additional benefits:

  • Enhances smart organization for a distributed workforce. Cloud-based accounting data can be accessed anywhere, anytime, so employees can quickly and easily complete their work no matter where they are located. With a cloud-based system, for example, sales reps can input expense receipts simply by photographing a document and submitting it electronically; should project managers need to check an invoice for a supplier, they can access the system remotely to search by vendor, amount, or date.
  • Maintains relationships and easily verifies discrepancies. Cloud-based tools heighten your ability to communicate with vendors and distributors. Should you have concerns about bill payment, for instance, advanced tools allow you to identify any unpaid bills and pay them quickly to keep all your accounts in good standing.
  • Employs a diverse suite of secure apps. With cloud-based accounting, you not only have rapid access to data and documents, you also have the ability to integrate other cloud-based tools easily, such as effective applications from QuickBooks Online or Neat. Once you enter the world of cloud-based accounting, you can leverage information from a variety of platforms.

If you're still not sure whether cloud-based accounting is right for your company, call us today. We’ll describe the various options and help your business select the right solution.
