Traditional accounting software typically requires too much of your time and effort, which doesn't add value, and takes the fun out of being in business.
Online accounting fundamentally changes how you work. Automated data feeds from your bank and your business network let you manage cash flow in real-time. The ability to collaborate with your team and advisors, anytime, from anywhere, transforms your business.
Our rich ecosystem of over 100 solution partners means you can easily link accounting into your business process to make you much more productive.
Common problems with most accounting software
- Too complicated - it's hard to get data in and out.
- Too confusing - it's not clear what to do and how to do it.
- It's never up-to-date - the data in the system is not current nor is the software.
- It only works on one computer - and bounces from place to place (e.g. USB drive).
- Only one person can use it - key people can't access financial and customer details.
- Getting data to/from advisors is difficult, causing errors, delays and increased costs.
- It's expensive and complicated to keep backups (if done at all).
- It's expensive, complicated and time consuming to upgrade the software.
- Customer support is unhelpful, expensive and slow.
