How switching Accounting Systems can drive your business forward

Does your Accounting Software help your business grow?

If you are a Financial Director, Company Director, Manager, Accountant or Bookkeeper, you will know that having the right accounting solution is about so much more than just making the books balance.

The right business accounting software puts you in control. It gives you the information and data that you need to help manage the business, to plan for growth, to identify potential areas of profit and loss – and ultimately to drive the organisation forward.

Taking the pain out of accounting data conversion

If you've ever wondered if you could get more from your accounting software but are wary of the process, you've probably thought...

"We don't like our current system but it's too time-consuming and difficult to change."

"We're worried we'll lose all our data."

"The time and disruption it takes to change our system simply isn't worth it."

"We just don't have the times to change systems now."

Sound familiar? This is where Whitegate comes in - we can offer as little or as much expertise and assistance as you need to help you make the smooth transition to a new all-in-one cloud-based accounting system.

What should you look for in cloud accounting software?

There are so many financial software solutions on the market; it’s hard to know which one is right for your organisation. At Whitegate we have done the hard work for you, using our knowledge, experience and expertise to select what we consider to be the very best cloud accounting software on the market – Exact Online. What’s more, Exact Online offers a proactive accounting solution for a range of organisations; from SMEs to large companies with operations across multiple sites.

It’s also important to be aware that not all services sold as being cloud-based are true browser based software-as-a-service applications. So, what are the five key features that you should look for when choosing your cloud accounting software?

1. Flexibility
A good cloud accounting system gives you the information that you need in the format that you need it. This may be in a variety of different layouts for a range of different purposes. So any software needs to be flexible, offering more than one way of organising and presenting information.

2. Access
One of the greatest advantages of using cloud accounting is the fact that it enables secure access to designated stakeholders from anywhere. This also enables easier outsourcing to trusted users. Software services with user-friendly mobile applications are also a sign of a well thought-out, future-proofed data solution.

3. Ease of use
The best cloud accounting software is relatively intuitive. You shouldn’t need a degree in finance and accounting to carry out day to day tasks, although interpreting how the resultant data can help you optimise processes may require a little more skill.

4. Time saving
Automation is one of the most significant time saving strategies there is. The right software automates key processes simply, reducing duplication and the need to re-enter information at the same time as generating informative reports at the click of a mouse.

5. Secure
Data security is a key issue for every organisation. Any software that you choose must be designed with security in mind to ensure that your valuable data is as safe as it is possible to be.

Of course, any financial accounting now needs to be MTD (Making tax Digital) compliant. Many software companies are adding this functionality as an add-on facility for and extra charge. However, the best accounting software is designed with this already an essential component of the system to ensure seamless integration – and no hidden costs.
