Every business has been affected by 2020 in one way or another. Some businesses have gained a lot of traction. Others are losing money by the day. They all have one thing in common. Accounting is an essential function of their company and they need access to their systems, sometimes at the drop of a hat. How they get that access differs, however, but one thing has been made abundantly clear. Having remote, mobile access to accounting software is now more important than ever.
Locked Out of the Office
Interruptions have become a daily occurrence, so it is somewhat normal now. However, major interruptions can still rock you.
When you cant get into the office to get your critical accounting documents it could mean missing out on a loan that your business needs to stay open. Now it may not always be that serious but it makes you think “what if I don’t have access?”. Thankfully, cloud accounting has come a very long way since it’s inception. Going so far as to surpass many of the on-premises solutions at a fraction of the cost.
It’s all about the security and accessibility of your companies vital information. Sage Intacct, for example, is the only cloud accounting solution recommended by the AICPA. They have passed all of the strict security measures to keep your information as secure as possible. They also give you access to all of your accounting data from wherever you have the internet and a computer. It’s systems like these that not only make your life easier but give you peace of mind knowing when you need last-minute information it’s available to you in just a few clicks.
Experiencing Rapid Growth
On the other side of the coin are the businesses that cant keep up with the growth. 2020 has been a whirlwind in terms of change. Where some can’t get people in the door, others have services that are far more in demand than they ever were.
Those businesses need a system that can quickly scale. With on-premises software that can be a monumental challenge. This could mean dropping money and time into new hardware. Having on-call IT support to fix any potential upgrade issues. Emergency data backup. Downtime to upgrade and expand. All of which cost time and money and cause stress.
With cloud-based solutions like Microsoft Dynamics Business Central, scaling happens with minimal effort. Make a call, tell your customer success manager what you need, and it happens. It’s as easy as that. You also get automatic updates and never really have to worry about upgrading anything again. In the end, you just want to make sure you are covered when your business succeeds. You don’t want to associate success with the pain of simply keeping up with your software.
