Confused about what are the right accounting solutions in your business? Cloud solution or On-premise? or perhaps what kind of features that help? It is common to have these questions when choosing a business solution. Probably for some, a cloud solution can be a new term. Without denying, cloud solution has gained many highlights in technology news. With many technology jargon and “futuristic” features, but the real important question will be what cloud solution can do to me or my business.
Work Anywhere and Anytime
With a fast pace environment, being mobile has become one of the requirements in doing business. The speed to get information becomes instant. Many on-premise solutions (the needs to install in your local PC) would not be able to give you this. The thing about on-premise, you need to bring that connected PC or laptop anywhere. Imagine when you are on holiday but need to do something urgently. Alternatively, when you change your computer and have to migrate all your data to a new laptop (where one missing file might make things complicated). Moving to a cloud solution can make your data mobile with you. It would be best if you had an internet connection.
How frequent you do back up your business data? Every day or weekly? These activities can be space consuming to your laptop. Plus, how many backup files that you think it is necessary? Two copies or perhaps four? Moving to the cloud will eliminate this activity as one of cloud feature is enable to perform auto-backup without consuming customer space. How about restoring the backup? It might be easy to perform back up but not on restoring up. We once tried to help our existing customers to restore their back up (To get their history data), and it is a quite lengthy process to do. Not to mention, we have to call a couple of times to software providers to help us in a particular area. So when you are in a cloud solution, back up will be done automatically.
Low Entry Cost
I think this is what ordinary people will love to have — low entry cost. Instead of having to pay a quite significant amount of money to get the license or software, cloud subscription can save you on initial cost. Not to mention, there are times you need to purchase support packages and upgrades. This cost will be reasonable to channel to another area such as marketing to boost your business.
Three features above are what makes cloud solutions favorable to business owners. One thing that might pop up will be migration. Migrating can be tedious and tiring exercise. Workspez team will help you in this matter so that your migration process will be way less painful and tedious.
