9 REASONS SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS SHOULD DO BOOKKEEPING IN THE CLOUD
Cloud computing is having your accounting software entirely based online via the internet. There is no hardware or software required, other than browsing the internet. There are so many reasons why it is better than hosting your accounting software on a desktop PC or local server.
1) Less Expensive and Only Pay For What You Use
Even given its greater benefits, surprisingly, the cost of cloud based bookkeeping software is cheaper than locally operating software.
2) Integration of Your Cloud Accounting Software with Other Internet Based Services
Your small business can integrate with other internet based services, such as online bill payments, resulting in much less paper work. You can glance at important real time information such as your bank accounts, accounts payable and accounts receivables.
On vacation, want to work from home, or have another office? No problem, you can work from any computer or location. You and your staff have quick and easy access to your bookkeeping files from anywhere. From anywhere you have real-time data and reporting.
4) Greater Security of your Important Financial Information
As long as you ensure you keep your password protected, with today's online security, files in the cloud are much more secure than files on your local desktop or server. Many accounting cloud host sites offer fingerprint or retina scans, state of the art anti-virus and malware protection, strongly encrypted file protection and more.
5) Always have a Backup of your Accounting Software Files
One of the greater benefits of cloud based bookkeeping software is that your files are always backed up in real time. I do not know a business owner that has not had a file corruption or computer hardware problem or theft that has caused a disaster at least once in their lives; you avoid this risk with a cloud based accounting platform.
6) Continually have the latest Bookkeeping Software and Payroll Files
Given the nature of accounting software, there are constant ongoing updates required. In the cloud your bookkeeping software is always up to date in real time. You do not need to worry about updating or any corruption issues, the online host ensures your program is running smoothly.
7) Easy to Share Files Among Anyone doing Bookkeeping Tasks
Every small business owner knows the perils of trying to share access to your bookkeeping software among multiple users in various locations. With a cloud based accounting software platform you and your staff can access files from anywhere in and out of the office. You can even access your accounting files with a tablet or mobile phone!
With the cloud you have your real-time information available to all users. You can share your access among staff, an outside bookkeeper and accountant; anyone you like. Also, you can easily have multiple users logged in at the same time.
Cloud based accounting software does not have the limitations of historical software programs and limitations of the desktop PC based operating platform.
