Welcome to our Weekly Digest!
This week, we'll dive into Cloud-based softwares, such as Xero.
What is the cloud?
The cloud is not physical. Think of the cloud as connected remote servers everywhere, giving us access to data and software online anytime, anywhere, from any device.
What is cloud accounting?
With cloud accounting, your business books are all online. That includes records of income and expenses, and assets and liabilities. The information is encrypted, similar to a bank’s, so only people with the login can view the data. Most systems come with tools for quoting, invoicing, managing bills and more.
How cloud accounting works...
Users subscribe to an online accounting software solution and move their books to the cloud. From then on, they can access their accounts from any web browser, or from an app on their phone. Most users connect the software to their business bank account, so that banking transactions flow automatically from the bank to the books. This saves them from a lot of data entry.
