When you run your own business, you’re so busy tending to your clients and looking for new business that financial and IT tasks often take a back seat. And it can be hard to get back to the office to take care of tasks like issuing invoices and tracking costs. But today’s technology means that financial tasks are no longer limited to the office – with smartphones and tablets, you can manage your finances on the go. Cloud-based accounting tools can be used on any device, anywhere you need them. Here are six ways a cloud accounting solution can free you up to focus on your clients and build your business.
- Take back your time.
Cloud-based accounting solutions automate administrative tasks like issuing invoices, paying bills, and hunting for paperwork. With your smartphone, tablet, or any other device, manage your finances efficiently, whenever it’s convenient.
- Eliminate accounting ups and downs.
With a traditional accounting approach, tax deadlines can take up significant time that you could be spending with customers. A cloud-based solution lets you spread out the work by updating your financial information quickly and efficiently with the click of a button. And you can communicate with your accountant online, so that you stay on top of your tax obligations throughout the year.
- Secure your business data.
Today’s cloud accounting solutions protect your sensitive business data no matter where you are. Log in securely from any device and access the data you need without the fear of your critical information being compromised. All your data stays securely backed up and offsite.
- Reduce your IT cost and complexity.
Today’s cloud technologies mean that mobile IT is available – and cost effective – for businesses of all sizes. Your software is automatically updated, so you are always working with the most recent release. And you can link in other systems such as customer relationship management and reporting tools for an all-in-one picture of your business.
- Simplify compliance.
The constantly changing regulatory environment – covering everything from employment laws to data protection requirements – is a challenge for businesses of all sizes, but especially for small businesses. A cloud-based accounting solution reduces compliance headaches, with legal requirements built into the software and updated as regulatory changes happen.
- Make smarter decisions.
Leverage real-time data to make the strategic decisions that grow your business. Because you always have access to current data, you have the information you need to see opportunities and spot important trends.
A cloud-based accounting system gives you the flexibility and mobility you need to manage your finances wherever you are, freeing you up to focus on growing your business.
