What to 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.

Be aware that not all services sold as 'cloud-based' are true browser based software-as-a-service applications. So, here are the five key features that you should look for when considering cloud accounting software?

1. Flexibility
A good cloud accounting system gives you the information that you need in the format that you need it. It needs to be flexible yet controlled. It needs to offer more than one dimension to store transactions and an easy way of presenting or extracting the information. It needs to have controls and the flexibility for those in control to make adjustments.

2. Access
One of the greatest advantages of using a cloud solution 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 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 key information.

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 safe.

Of course, accounting software now needs to be MTD (Making tax Digital) compliant. Many software companies are adding this functionality for an extra charge. Today's accounting software is designed with this already built in and with no extra costs.
