Cloud Accounting vs. Traditional Accounting

Cloud accounting is often seen as the step forward in accounting processes. When compared with traditional accounting methods:

  1. Multiple users can access central information, compared with the limited access of traditional accounting software.
  2. It adds value by being tailored to your business needs and your own setup. Features are also more user-friendly, making navigation easier.
  3. It saves time and money with fewer in-house processes required such as backups, downloads and upgrades.
  4. It’s more secure as cloud accounting leaving no traces of your data on the device it’s viewed on, all accounts being password-protected and information is encrypted. This is much more secure than using onsite hard drive to perform backups.
