Do you find that maintaining your bookkeeping records is taking time away from running your business? If you’re like most people, paperwork and number-crunching are not your favourite things to do.

Cloud-based Services

Use of a cloud-based accounting system can give you access to your accounting files from anywhere, anytime. As long as you have access to the web, you can access your data. You can access your accounting software just as you would access any other web page.

You also no longer need to worry about backing up your data. Since data storage is their business, cloud service providers keep up-to-date backups on their servers.

Cloud service providers ensure that their infrastructure is secure and that their clients’ data and applications are protected. The user will take measures to fortify their application and use strong passwords and authentication measures.

It’s a growing trend in the accounting software industry, as new companies, as well as industry veterans alike roll out cloud-based accounting packages.

Another benefit of the web-based platform is the ability to give us access to your records. Do you want us to review an entry for you? By granting us access, we can review your books for you from anywhere. It makes it easy and convenient. We can have a look at your data as little or as often as you like.
