At CHW we understand that there are automatic benefits for small businesses who utilise this type of solution. But it may not be everybody. Here are some of our thoughts for you to consider:
Pay as you go
As with most based cloud based solutions, the software is usually on a monthly fixed subscription, meaning you pay as you go. The contract can be picked up or dropped essentially as and when you choose.
Low monthly cost
Start off prices are inexpensive, with offers as little as £5 per month. This has obvious benefits for start-ups, where keeping costs to a minimum is essential in the early days of trading.
Strong support included
Unlike traditional server based solutions, there is no add on cost for support. We actually find that all or most have a very strong online guide with user videos as manuals. If all else fails you can still request call backs to solve your problem if you have not got the bottom of it. Additionally, updates are automatic meaning as advances are made, you do not have to worry about installation.
As with any cloud based solution, you are utilising the providers’ remote servers. You therefore do not have to invest in your own IT infrastructure. As your business expands, you can add as many users as you like. Furthermore, users can have restricted access to certain elements of the books, meaning sensitive information, such as bank accounts, payroll etc can remain confidential. Additionally, there some super smart features such as automatic bank feeds and a whole market place of add on features should you require them.
As your books and accounts are remotely accessed via the internet or the “world wide web” this enables any user to have world wide access. This can be accessed on most modern devices such as tablets, laptops and smart phones. This ultimately streamlines the process and enhances visibility for business owners.
