1. Access your work anywhere, anytime
One of the best advantages about migrating to the cloud is that you’ll be independent from your Windows computer. Want to access your work from an iPad? No problem. Mac computer? Absolutely. This is an especially strong case for accountants who prefer to use Apple devices.
2. More secure, cloud-based backup
Many firms currently back up files locally to their desktops, which means if there's a break-in, a fire or other incident at the office, they’d be in huge trouble. Most cloud providers offer secure, cloud-based data storage as the default option so file security would be one less thing to worry about.
3. Built-in audit trails
For each employee and contractor who accesses your tax software, you can ask the cloud provider to generate a report for you or see if there's any suspicious activity.
4. Remote working without hiring IT
By moving all the essential software into the cloud, you and your team can work remotely – without hiring a technician to handle any setup.
5. Better collaboration + information hand-off
Cloud hosting makes team collaboration much easier – it enables seamless internal hand-off of information between teammates and contractors.
6. Always-on customer support
Moving your operations onto our cloud-based platform makes troubleshooting a breeze for you and your clients. We have a live chat box and email through which we can address any issues promptly.
Of course, using the cloud requires constant, reliable internet access. But, as strong internet becomes more prevalent everywhere, this downside becomes less of a concern. For nearly every firm, we’d strongly advise considering migrating to the cloud.
