20 Feb Why cloud accountancy is the future
When something comes along which fundamentally changes the way people think, it can lead to hesitancy and scepticism. This is what has happened with “the cloud” as it’s commonly known, where data and software are held on remote servers.
A better way of accounting
With cloud accountancy, it means that the software can be accessed from anywhere allowing for much quicker and smoother accounting. It allows easier management of your finances, more accurate information, and peace of mind.
Sometimes the benefits simply overwhelm any fears people have. This is what happened with mobile banking; consumers wondered how it could be safe and how it could possibly work. In the end, both those fears were disproved and people soon saw the benefits.
Step into the modern world
In much the same way, cloud accountancy is by far the most productive, cost-effective and accurate way to manage your accounts as we leap forward into the modern world. Just as everyone now has a banking app on their phone, in the near future almost all businesses will be using cloud accountancy. The majority already are.
Having a world where you have to worry about backing up your data, living in fear of theft or a virus ruining your computer should be over. Cloud accountancy takes all those worries away because your data is automatically backed up meaning you don’t have to worry about anything losing access to your data or its security. Everything is stored on remote servers and adheres to strict data protection regulations.
Cloud accountancy is the safe and sensible solution. While some may worry about trusting such information to a remote server, in reality it is far safer than the traditional method of manual accounting where data can be input incorrectly, or keeping files in cabinets or on hard drives which are at risk of being lost, destroyed, breached or corrupted, especially if only backed up intermittently or stored on-site. When businesses move to cloud accountancy, they no longer need to plan for these worries or manually back up files.
Make your life easier
In the 21st century business is mobile, and when you use cloud accounting you can access your data wherever you are in the world – all you need is an internet connection. Keeping your data up to date is made easier, enabling you to get reports in real time, meaning you’ll always have an accurate picture of how your business is performing. Cloud accountancy is the future, but it should also be your present.
