4 Reasons Why You'll Opt In For Cloud Accounting Software As Well
Cloud-based accounting software can change the way you feel about running your business… and especially the always-important but frequently neglected job of managing your business’s finances.
Although we’ve gone to great lengths to make this point in the past, there really isn’t anything like trying it for yourself. You just can’t believe what kind of difference having a clean, intuitive interface makes on your attitude about accounting until you’ve given it a try.
If you’re on the fence about whether you should ditch your best-selling but wildly unpopular accounting suite, we invite you to take the plunge and see what the alternatives are like. To show you just how significant the differences are, we want to share four things real-world cloud accounting software users tell us daily.
I Spend Less Time on Bookkeeping
How many business owners do you know who have lots of time to spare to just sit around and do something redundant? Well, we don’t know any either. Cloud acounting apps are designed to combine all the features you’d expect from a small business accounting package, but in a streamlined way that saves hours every week.
From transaction entry to reports, filing, and customization, we’ve thought all your accounting processes through from start to finish. The result is a package that’s incredibly easy to use and navigate, and frees up your time for more important jobs.
My Office Is Cleaner Than Ever!
Cloud accounting, combined with digital file storage, takes away the need for most printed documents and paper receipts. When you consider the sheer amount of paperwork that builds up in the offices (or home offices) of most business owners, it’s easy to see how this one change alone can clear away a lot of clutter.
When you can’t find what you’re looking for, you waste time and increase your stress. In that way, simply deciding to make the most of a cloud accounting app can let you approach each task with a sharper mind… not to mention fewer printed distractions getting in the way.
My Bookkeeper Isn’t Stalking Me Anymore
A lot of business owners have strange relationships with their bookkeepers. On the one hand, they definitely need these valuable professionals to help them stay on top of bills, invoices, and finances. And yet, on the other hand, it can be a major annoyance to have your bookkeeper calling you again and again trying to get the details of an invoice or receipt.
Cloud accounting software has built-in transaction flagging and online communications tools that eliminate this problem. It’s like having chat, email, and alerts all in one place, except that they relate to your money, and important transactions, so you can devote your attention to other things. You can say goodbye to all those phone calls and receipts, and stop feeling like your bookkeeper is stalking you.
I Love Knowing Where My Company’s Money Is
Really, this is how you should feel using any accounting package. However, it’s not unusual for business owners to get so lost in the complexity of the popular choices that they almost literally have no idea how well their company is performing, or how much money they have coming in or going out at any given moment.
Being able to keep track of your finances is too important a job to trust to a piece of software that doesn’t work the way you want it to. The first step to getting control of your company’s finances is being able to understand how to find the information you need, instantly and in real time.
If you’ve ever had the feeling that you’re doing a lot of work to accommodate your accounting software package, instead of having things the other way around, it’s time to see what you can accomplish by simplifying things. Give a good cloud accounting app a try… it costs literally nothing, and we are confident you’ll never look back.
