5 Benefits of Cloud Based Accounting Software

Gone are the days when you need to rely on USB’s to transfer data, or store numerous documents labeled version one through five on your hard drive. Thanks to the cloud, data, and software now it is accessible online anytime, anywhere, from any device. More and more businesses are moving to cloud-based accounting software due to its ease of use controlled user permissions, safe storage, and protection of data. Simply, it’s saving businesses time, money and the hassles of software upgrades and info-sharing.

Below are five ways Cloud Accounting can help your business:

Multi-user access.

As a business owner, you may have concerns about the safety of your company’s most private and important information being housed in the cloud. But the cloud is a very safe and secure way to store information and collaborate with members of your team. You can control the level of access for users that you invite to view your data; a much more secure way to share information than sending files via email or USB.

Automatic updates = more time spent running your business, and less time worrying about outdated software.


With cloud software, you don’t need to worry about installing the latest version. You can expect access to new features and securities instantly. Less hands-on maintenance helps reduce costs for system administration, server failures, and version upgrades.

Real-time overview of your organizations’ current financial situation.


With real-time updates to information from your team, the numbers you are looking at will always be up-to date, editable and saved in real-time.

Data is safe in the event your computer or networks are down.


Everything is run online; your data will live on the internet. This means if something happens to your hard drive or place of business, your data is securely backed up to access anywhere. In the case of a natural disaster or fire, your business can keep running without any downtime to recover data.

All you need is an internet connection to access the cloud.

That and your login credentials of course.  Rest easy knowing your information is available to you, no matter where you are or what device you are on.
