Why Accounting in the Cloud?
Business owners and managers need to keep close control of their financial data. They need to know where they stand at all times, and having information available to make business decisions is essential. When the financial information is in the office but the owner isn’t, how can wise decisions be made without access to supporting data? They can’t, and that’s a problem. The solution is simple: work in the cloud.
A cloud computing model properly applied to accounting and bookkeeping systems helps businesses of any size keep their financial data and accounting applications in a safe a secure environment, yet accessible to those who need it. By locating the business applications and data in a protected central location, access to programs and data sets can be provided to authorized users regardless of location or computing platform. For a small business owner, this means that working from home or on vacation can be as productive as working in the office. In larger businesses, cloud-based accounting means the accounting department, CFO and financial advisers might all access the same financial records and applications no matter where they work from.
