About Cloud Computing
The cloud is a platform to make data and software accessible online anytime, anywhere, from any device. You can use cloud-based software from any device with an internet connection; your device just operates as a means of communication.
Cloud accounting means small business owners and their accountants stay connected to the data in real time facilitating instant insight into and overview of finances. It provides for a proactive approach to managing the financial performance of the business through improved collaboration, up to date metrics and integrated workflow processes.
The cloud can integrate with a whole ecosystem of add-ons. It’s scalable, cost-effective, easy-to-use and requires very little capital expenditure.
