I’m sure every business owner could agree that there is nothing worse than losing track of your money. It’s confusing, stressful, and detrimental to the business to say the least. We want to encourage you to get control over your cash, stop chasing payments and get paid faster.
One of our first solutions is choosing an Accounting Software. Every business has unique needs, so you can use an Accounting Software on its own, or to compliment the bookkeeper and/or accountant.
Cloud-based software can be accessed anywhere, anytime. With a dashboard to summarise the most valuable information to your business, helping you to better understand your finances.
Many Accounting Software’s offer a connection to your bank feed too – so you can kiss manual data entry goodbye. Some packages will offer the service of automatic coding of receipts or take photos to file the receipt via your mobile phone.
We are aware that sometimes price is the deciding factor. But firstly, consider this… How and when do you want to grow?
Let your answer to this question help determine your choice to make the switch.
Because imagine having to start all over again down the track. Besides, the fees for accounting software can be written off as a business expense.
There are numerous software options out there which include, IRD Cashbook Template, Wave, Banklink, Reckon, FreshBooks, Intuit QuickBooks Online, Zoho Invoice, Pabbly, and plenty others. It’s important to remember however, the software you choose should suit the business, not the other way around.
Accounting software should not just make your life easier;
they should give you new opportunities for success.
This is why our trusted team of experts are committed to help you find the product that will best suit your needs. Two main software’s we use are:
