Effective Use of Cloud Accounting

Monday June 1, 2015

Cloud accounting is the simplest, most efficient way to stay on top of your finances. Keep engaged with your business and in touch with your accountant with Clear Books.

The Clear Books cloud accounting package is just part of the gear RIFT Accounting packs into the adventuring kit of business explorers, but it's one of the most important and versatile tools you'll ever use. With users doubling consistently since the mid-noughties, cloud accounting is the best way to keep your finances buzzing and transform your accountant from mild-mannered financial caretaker to full-time strategic superhero.

Clear Books Screen ShotsLet's face it, bookkeeping has never been the sexiest aspect of running a business. The time wasted stacking paperwork and shuffling documents is, senior RIFTologists believe, very probably why the dinosaurs never developed a coherent business plan for the Ice Age - and when was the last time you saw a Styracosaurus launching a successful Limited Company?

Cloud accounting is what separates us from our evolutionary ancestors, and its ability to slash the time spent on data entry and manual filing is a key factor in the success it offers. You and your accountant can work together on the same set of figures in real time, and in much closer collaboration, from anywhere in the world.

Of course, the best piece of survival equipment ever invented is no help if you can't work out how to use it. Clear Books has simple, anytime/anywhere accessibility and you don't need to be a finance professional to get to grips with it. You'll always be sure you and your accountant are on the same page and heading in the same direction. The days of sending and receiving your financial updates on a monthly or yearly basis are gone. At any moment, both you and your accountant have a full and accurate picture of your situation. In the business jungle, knowing exactly where you stand is the only way to be sure you're on the right track.

Clear Books also automates things that used to require money, time and risk to get done. There's nothing to get lost in the post and no need to trek up to your accountant's office for a costly meeting billed at an hourly rate. You can get direct feeds from your bank account straight into the software and generate invoices and other key documents automatically. You'll never forget when a bill is due or a client's payment expected, and all your details are backed up and protected by top-tier bank levels of security. Frankly, if the dinosaurs had used Clear Books it'd be a very different business landscape today.
