QuickBooks Online is cloud accounting software which means if you have internet access your data will automatically be synced across your devices. This ensures security as work won’t get lost and efficiency as you can access your work from virtually anywhere.
What are the benefits of online accounting software?
For businesses considering cloud accounting software there are many financial and operational benefits including reduced IT costs, flexibility, collaboration, support and security which we’ll explain further in this section.
- Reduced IT costs
Your overall IT costs could be substantially reduced as there wouldn’t be a need to invest in expensive computing systems which save and run energy consumptive software on the system.
Cloud computing will allow your business to benefit from highly flexible work practices, including the options of logging in from home or during a commute if there’s an emergency (providing you have access to the internet). This will also allow your business to work in a more agile manner, adapting processes and data input when needed.
Working in a cloud environment allows your business the ability to communicate and share effectively outside of traditional business communication methods. With QuickBooks Online you can give your employees access, while maintaining control over what information they can view or modify.
The QuickBooks team offers free unlimited support via telephone or email, so you can rest assured that if your staff happen to find themselves in a sticky situation whilst working in office or remotely, our support staff will be happy to assist getting your work back on track.
Working on the cloud can be intimidating in terms of security as with most things in the IT industry, unless you have prior experience it is difficult to understand how information is secured. In simple, all data transferred via QuickBooks Online is scrambled with 128-bit SSL encryption. This is one of the most secure encryption methods used in most modern encryption algorithms and technologies. Along with being encrypted, your data is automatically backed up ensuring no loss of work.
