Does it ever feel like you’re fighting against your accounting software?

Maintaining an accurate record of your business’ finances is vital for allowing your venture to operate and expand, so it’s important to make sure that they are being managed effectively. With that said, the benefits of updating old financial systems aren’t always apparent, especially for those that have grown accustomed to traditional accounting methods. So, today we’re looking at signs that your business’ finances could benefit from a more modern approach.

 

Manual Management

How much time each week is dedicated entirely to mindless, unnecessary data input? Whilst manual bookkeeping was once the standard for maintaining financial records, advances in technology have left methods like this outdated and inefficient.

To put it simply, most businesses don’t have the time or manpower for consistent manual data entry. These constraints can often lead to inaccurate or hastily-managed records that don’t necessarily provide the information you need to make informed decisions about your business.

At Next Level Accountants, our Always-Up-To-Date bookkeeping system offers your you immediate insights and overviews of your business’ data, without requiring time-consuming data entry or manual upkeep. This allows you to put your time into more important tasks, such as growing your business.

Data Loss

Maintaining a cohesive folder of payroll information, receipts, spreadsheets and other important files is inconvenient at the best of times. With that said, if this information is lost or damaged, it can be a massive blow that’s difficult to recover from. Even for those careful few that consistently back up their information onto external hard drives, information loss is still a major concern, especially for larger businesses working across several departments.

That’s why, at NLA, we provide a cloud-based management system, ensuring that your data is protected from all of the potential problems that can accompany manual bookkeeping. As an additional incentive, this cloud-based system also allows you and other chosen individuals access to your business’ financial information anytime, anywhere, across a wide variety of devices.

Cloud accounting also allows you to compile data from various disparate areas of your business into one simple, easy-to-use platform, giving you a thorough snapshot of your business’ current financial status when you need it.

While many businesses tend to lean toward financial management systems that they are more familiar with, the benefits associated with updating your business’ finances for the modern age are difficult to discount.
