Working in the cloud
Many online accounting systems also offer time-saving apps that can be used on smartphones and tablets which makes it easier for small businesses to manage their bookkeeping or invoice customers while on the move. With traditional desktop systems, this is usually done on one computer at a time, either in the office or at home which can be restrictive for many of today’s businesses.
There are many more advantages of working in the cloud so it will come as no surprise that there is a huge range of companies to choose from. The main players to look out for are Xero, KashFlow, QuickBooks, and FreeAgent and naturally, we have focused our knowledge and training on these packages and the various apps that link to them.
Working in the cloud has revolutionised the accounting profession which in turn is having a positive impact on the relationships accountants have with their clients. Our role has changed, and for the better! Simply engaging an accountant to provide you with numbers at the end of the year is becoming obsolete, just like desktop accounting software.
