Do you know how much money is owed to your business, and how much your business owes to suppliers or vendors? And have you wondered how much money you have to spend today on new equipment, tools or even more staff?

Knowing your money day-to-day is crucial to how you run your business, and impacts the decisions you make. Typically, having access to your up-to-date finances involves lots of manual work, or comparing multiple documents or spreadsheets.

However, online technology that connects your online accounting software to your bank is actually available today - and for free. Here’s how this technology works, and how it can transform the way you run your business.
