  • Secondly, unlike traditional accounting software, cloud accounting software updates financial information automatically and provides financial reporting in real-time.

  • This means account balances are always accurate and fewer errors take place due to manual data entry.

  • They are also better able to handle multi-company transactions more efficiently.


  • Problems with traditional accounting software

  • The data in the system isnít up to date and neither is the software.

  • Only one person has user access. Key people can't access financial and customer details
  • It's costly and complicated to keep backups (if done at all).
  • It's expensive, difficult and time consuming to upgrade the software.
