Cloud Accounting….What Is It??

Whether you realize it or not, you are probably already using cloud technology every day.

Whenever you use Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Docs, Microsoft Office 365 or any application that allows you to access it from anywhere, meaning remotely, you are using a cloud based program.

Cloud based accounting software such as Xero or Quickbooks Online, works in just this way.  It’s just like normal accounting software except your files are not stored on anyone else’s computer, they are stored instead on highly secure, remote servers.  This lowers the risk for your information to be lost, stolen or deleted by mistake.

One major advantage of cloud based systems is that you have the ability to access it from anywhere at any time via smartphones, laptops, tablets or computers.  Another advantage is the fact that you are always using the most secure and updated version of the software.

As your bookkeeper, cloud based applications allow me to not only manage and fix data errors and prepare your financial statements, this allows me to become a virtual CFO for your company.  I am able to then explain what your financial statements actually mean, help you create your road map to success, look at bench marking and where you stand against your competitors as well as identify errors and problems.  My goal is to become your most trusted business advisor and this type of platform allows me to be just that!
