For new entrepreneurs, the Cloud offers a modern approach to the old, time-consuming ways of accounting. Whether you’re ready to make the move or are still undecided, here are a few points to help consider if the Cloud is right for you, and help you find the right solution for your needs.
What are the benefits of the Cloud?
This is simple, the Cloud offers:
• 24/7 access to critical business information
• Reduced time and costs
• Increased collaboration with remote workers
• Automatic software and hardware updates
What are the limitations of your current set-up?
Before making any decisions about moving to the Cloud, you should first consider your current solution and its limitations. What would be your ideal outcome for a new solution, and what would this solution be worth to your business in time and money?
Which cloud solution is right for you?
Once you have a clear understanding of your goals for a new solution, you can begin to figure out which is right for you.
If you’re content with your current desktop application but need to access data remotely, then a hosted application may be best.
Yet, many feel limited by their current desktop solution and are looking to use Cloud applications while outsourcing their technology needs. If this sounds like you, you may be better finding an outsourced solution provider.

Researching your vendor
Before you move your accounting over to the Cloud, you’re going to need someone that is qualified to get you there efficiently. It helps to do a little research on your potential solution provider. First, understand the qualifications of the vendor’s team. How long have they been providing these services? Is their support and implementation team available at all times? Find client reviews online to learn more about the user experience offered by the vendor.
Once you have found the perfect solution for you, you will be able to fully enjoy all the benefits of cloud accounting.
