How cloud services help accountants
In the recent survey from Cloud Industry Forum, roughly 8 out of 10 UK enterprises are using cloud services and 6 of them are thinking about migrating 100% of their operations to the cloud. This trend is no different from the experiences of accounting firms and accountants that leverage the use of cloud services.
If you are unsure about what working in the cloud means – it really is a conceptual thing. The cloud represents a virtual storage, that is, storage that can be accessed from anywhere and doesn’t physically sit on your computer or company’s server. Thinking of it as being ‘in the cloud’ helps people to understand that it is ‘out there somewhere’!
There are many advantages that cloud services offer to accountants
Cloud computing enables accountants to increase capacity and update accountancy software easily. Many businesses no longer own software – they just work on the most recent version by accessing it via the Internet. It saves space on your computer and means you are always bang up to date.
It also helps accountants be more productive by eliminating repetitive tasks like data entry. Collecting financial data is way easier with the cloud. Clients just have to scan documents and upload them to the cloud where they can freely collaborate with their accountants in real-time, anywhere in the world. Working on one document saves a lot of confusion.
