To cloud, or not to cloud …

There are many who hear the term cloud and wonder what is everyone talking about?

 

Simply put, the cloud is the internet with online programs or apps  that have been designed to allow users access from multiple locations.Over the last few years, there has been a groundswell of support for internet based applications.  These applications are accessible via multiple electronic devices and information can be accessed virtually anywhere at any time.  The demand for this accessibility and the desire for cash flow friendly, pay as you go solutions have changed the focus of accounting software.

Traditional accounting models have required each client and/or their bookkeeper, and accountant to purchase bookkeeping software so that transactions can be entered and summarized for business and financial reporting.  The traditional model requires that a copy of the business’s database and paper records be transferred between the various users with the hope that no paperwork is lost.  Although there is a high amount of security in this traditional system, we have seen some significant drawbacks to the traditional approach, specifically in determining if the user is using the most current version of the data and the difficulty in managing receipts because the are lost or illegible due to the use of thermal receipts at a lot of retailers.
