Selecting Cloud Accounting Software
  • With the continuous innovation of technology,
    desktop-based accounting applications have
    started falling off the shelves and are now
    slowly being replaced by cloud accounting
    software. The following tips can help you in
    choosing the appropriate financial management
    software for your business.

  • In the race of rising businesses, a business
    owner must know the latest trends in the
    different aspects of business management. With
    the continuous innovation of technology,
    desktop-based accounting applications have
    started falling off the shelves and are now
    slowly being replaced by cloud accounting
    software.

  • Computer software has outshined the manual
    bookkeeping methods that accounting personnel
    used to do. This development has made the
    management and tracking of financial comings and
    goings easier and updated. But, technology is
    ever-evolving, and it did not take long before
    something even better than computer-installed
    software applications were created.
  • The newest trend in accounting management came in
    the form of cloud-based financial accounting
    software. In a nutshell, the concept of
    cloud-based software is that an account is made
    on a particular website, and the data input,
    processing, and output are done online. Every
    information that flows in and out of an account
    is stored in a cloud.

  • If this new trend has piqued your interest, you
    might have already been thinking about giving it
    a try. Though quite new on the market, there are
    already many companies that have developed and
    offer this product. You will have to note, that
    financial management software tools are not made
    the same and that they differ from each other in
    one way or another. And selecting the right
    software is critical to the financial operation
    and management of your business.
  • With the many options to choose from, which
    software should you pick? The following tips can
    help you in choosing the appropriate financial
    management software for your business.

Nature of your business
  • The nature of your business is a huge factor in
    determining the kind of services that you will
    need from an accounting software. You need to
    know what your financial activities consist of or
    how you are going to utilize the software. Decide
    on the major accounting aspects that your
    business entails. This way, you will be able to
    find the accounting software that will best suit
    your needs.

8
Functionality features
  • Bookkeeping accounting software tools have
    different functionalities. Still, you need to
    understand the nature of your business and know
    your financial management needs in order to know
    which functionality features to look for.

Security
  • Privacy is key. One of the major reasons why many
    businesses still feel apprehensive about using a
    cloud-based accounting system is security. You
    will basically be putting all your confidential
    financial data on the internet which makes it
    more at risk to unauthorized intrusion into your
    network or hacking. Thankfully, most new
    accounting software innovations are designed to
    keep the essential data of their clients away
    from the prying eyes of the security hackers both
    offline and online.
  • A secured website URL begins with a green-colored
    padlock and an https// which indicate that it
    is encrypted, and therefore cannot be easily
    hacked. Also, read through the privacy terms of
    the website, so you will know how the information
    you input is handled and stored.

11
  • You might be worried about storing your data in a
    web-based accounting software because of security
    risks. The fact is, this type of software is far
    safer than the typical desktop-based software
    tools which are currently fading fast. By saving
    your financial data on external servers, you are
    keeping your information away from any sort of
    physical hazards and the backup data will make
    sure you will not lose your information just in
    case someone accidentally deletes any files.

12
User-Friendly
  • Switching from one accounting software to another
    can be quite tricky, more so if the new software
    you have chosen is not user-friendly. The
    software should be straightforward and easy to
    use, responsive, and quick to navigate. In short,
    it has to be user-friendly. Taking more time
    learning how to use the new software is not only
    a waste of time and energy, it can also disrupt
    the smooth operation of your business.

13
Chat Support
  • Most websites that offer services of different
    sorts have customer chat support which is ready
    to answer the questions of their web visitors.
    However, queries that are not answerable by the
    built-in technical support are forwarded to the
    website handlers and usually take a few days
    until they are attended to. You need a website
    whose technical support is easily accessible and
    has support staff that can respond to queries in
    a short amount of time.

14
Contingency Plan
  • In the unfortunate but rare event that a server
    crashes, your data is gone. But dont be
    discouraged, because most accounting software
    tools have a back-up plan. User information that
    has already been fed to the system is primarily
    stored on the main web server, but there is
    usually an offer for a back-up storage plan. It
    is recommended that you choose a web software
    that allows you to download a copy of your data
    onto your device or export it into another cloud
    storage.

15
Performance
  • The performance encompasses the entire
    functionality of the software - from the
    navigation of the user interface to the
    remarkable features that it has to offer. One of
    the most sought after features involves
    multi-currency conversion, which means that it
    must be updated in foreign exchange rates. Though
    this may not still be applicable to a business
    that just began, it can be of great significance
    in your future progress.

16
Flexibility and integration
  • If you intend to integrate the other business
    software you are using to the new one, you would
    likely be interested in choosing an accounting
    software that will allow you to do so seamlessly.
    Also, if you foresee that you might need to
    upgrade the software to add more features and to
    increase the efficiency of your business in the
    future, consider picking one that is flexible
    enough to allow you to do so.

17
Price
  • Before you sign up for an account, choose the
    basic version first since it is the cheapest.
    Aside from that, it is the most practical way to
    get around the different features and get
    yourself familiar with the system without paying
    that much. You can upgrade to a higher version
    later.
  • Another thing is that the pricing scale of
    different accounting tools may vary based on
    various factors such as the functionality and
    other features. Be mindful, though, that the
    price does not always equate to the quality of
    the tool. That is, being expensive does not
    necessarily mean it is the best, or if it is
    cheap, it is automatically low in quality. You
    still have to check the features and see if it is
    worthy of its price.

18
  • Aside from the ones mentioned above, it is also
    vital that you do accurate research on the
    different software available for you. Check
    feedback, testimonials, and reviews from previous
    and current users as these are also reliable and
    honest sources of information. Before you sign
    up, you can also request a demo on how to use the
    software. You can also have a free trial version
    of the web-based software first so you and/or
    your employees can get first-hand experience.
  • Cloud-based accounting software has proven its
    advantage in the field of business management.
    With their single-host server characteristic,
    authorized business personnel can now access and
    monitor accounting data from just their mobile
    device, as long as they are connected to the
    internet. This new technological advancement
    offers convenience, comfort, and stability in a
    starting business.
