Finance directors require quick and easy access to reporting to fuel accurate decision making – and this can be held back by the limited capabilities and ‘clunky’ functionality offered by an on-premise finance solution.

There are still tens-of-thousands of organisations that ‘make do’ with the technology they have, applying ‘sticking plasters’ to their on-premise tools – in the form of a multitude of manual workarounds, myriad Excel spreadsheets, and a general acceptance that processes like reports take weeks rather than hours.

Many companies also export data each month to then share department/project actuals versus budgets. Not only is this very manual, but it makes finance responsible for getting and preparing the data.

Simply accepting these lengthy, clunky processes is what hinders growth and productivity in the long run, as there is true cloud accounting technology that exists and enables all stakeholders to self-service information – in turn freeing the finance function from this labour-intensive task.

True cloud finance software

True cloud infrastructure has been built specifically with ‘cloud-first’ in mind. It’s there to streamline processes and maintain reliable information for users to dissect and make organisation-critical decisions from, as well as include data that can be shared across the entire digital ecosystem. This means you have ultimate flexibility because you can access it from any location, in any browser, in a highly secure manner.

Additionally, true cloud facilitates access to global, seamless updates and is easy to deploy, so you’ll never miss a beat nor be working from an old system or clunky version again. And it’s digital-first capabilities allow for the provision of constant, secure software upgrades without impacting your organisation’s customised configuration.

Key advantages of true cloud accounting software

1. Reducing server infrastructure
2. Always being up to date
3. Providing enhanced disaster recovery
4. Enabling access from anywhere
5. Improving system integrations
6. Enhancing reporting capabilities
7. Streamlining complex operations

During lockdown, I was locked out of the office and that would have meant that I couldn’t have performed my job at all if we were still using a desktop system. With the browser-based solution though, it no longer matters at all where I am.”
