What is a cloud based computing? Cloud based computing software is accounting software that is hosted on remote servers. Data is sent into "the cloud" where it is processed and returned to the user. All application functions are performed off-site, not on the user's desktop. In cloud computing, users access software applications remotely through the internet or other network via a cloud application service provider. Using cloud computing accounting software frees the business from having to install and maintain software on individual desktop computers. It also allows employees in remote or branch offices to access the same data and the same version of the software.
Why should you be in the cloud? You work more efficiently, because all of your documents and applications are easily accessible, shareable and backed up. Your files can be run in multi-user mode so that you and your accountant can access the file from anywhere all the time, no conflicting copies, no accountant copies.
You eliminate substantially all of your IT costs. You never have to worry about backups and you never have to worry about staying with the latest version of software.
Cloud hosting companies are spending a great deal more on security than you and I can ever afford to spend. Your files are extremely secure.
Timely relevant information
Cloud based computing makes you more efficient. Your accountant no longer has to wait until the end of the month to get your documents. your documents can be given to your accountant daily or weekly, the choice is up to you. However, your files will be updated more frequently and you will have current information rather than month old information.
