Why Becoming a Cloud Based Business is Vital For Today's Small Business
The cloud accounting software landscape encompasses many solutions designed to serve a number of accounting/bookkeeping functions.
Although benefits will vary between solutions, on a general level, some of the benefits of cloud accounting applications include the following:
The ability to automate many manual accounting and bookkeeping processes. These automation capabilities enable accountants/bookkeepers and their clients to save time and increase efficiency, allowing them to spend more time on business growth.
The ability for data to be accessed regardless of location or device. This facilitates remote services and “anytime” communication, which will help to build stronger relationships between an accountant/bookkeeper and their clients.
The ability for data to be updated in real-time. Being able to access financial data and information quickly (i.e., in real time) will empower businesses to make informed decisions sooner rather than later.
The ability to easily scale to meet growing business needs. Let’s say your business currently makes 0-100 transactions per month, but experiences rapid growth that causes this number to jump to 10,000+ transactions per month. Your cloud accounting software should be able to easily support this growth.
The ability to facilitate a paperless environment. This will eliminate the need to physically store and manage paper documents, which is not only beneficial from a cost and office space perspective, but also for the environment.
The ability to provide automatic updates. This will help to further improve the functionality of the application and better enforce security.
The ability to reduce costs. Cloud-based software does not incur the costs associated with traditional software (including maintenance, upgrades, system administration, etc.).
The ability to integrate with other cloud solutions. These integration capabilities will improve the efficiency and increase the power of your cloud accounting technology stack.
The cloud is the future. Even if your on-premise accounting solution seems to function “just fine”, or if you’re diligent about managing your traditional processes, the world of accounting is inevitably changing, and it’s important for your business to keep up. The risk associated with maintaining old processes isn’t a question of capability – rather, it’s a question of whether or not you want to grow your business and maintain a competitive edge. Change can be difficult, but if the potential business benefits outweigh the costs, then it’s worth your consideration. As daunting as a transition to the cloud might seem, don’t be intimidated – our team will be happy to answer any of your questions and help to make the transition as easy as possible!
