Cloud Accounting is a fresh new approach to gain control of your business. This area is an exciting evolution for the accounting industry/business owners and we are totally InTouch with this movement. The reason why so many small to large businesses are turning to ‘cloud solutions’, or commonly referred to as ‘the cloud’, is because it brings numerous benefits and could just give your business that competitive advantage it needs.
Benefits of the Cloud Solutions
What is Cloud Solutions?
In its simplest form, it means using the internet to gain access to your business’s systems, programs and data.
An example of a cloud solution could be to move your desktop based accounting program (eg MYOB, Quickbooks) to a cloud based program such as Xero. Instead of ‘double clicking’ mouse on a desktop icon eg , you would go to www.login.xero.com , enter your username and password to gain access to your accounting records such as invoices, debtors, payroll, bills, bank transactions etc.
Other common cloud solutions you could employ for your business are-
Point of Sale (POS)
Employee Time Management (ie staff allocate their time to jobs/tasks, which flows to payroll)
Documents and Data Storage (paperless office solutions)
Payroll and HR
General business management tools, often industry customised
