Why cloud software for accounting?

The best bookkeeping software uses cloud technology so you can securely manage your accounts wherever you are. How does it work? Your data is stored in the cloud (a remote server or computer). To access and interact with your data, you just need an internet connection and a computer or smart device.

Running a business means you’re often on the go. Between meetings with potential employees, pitching products or services to clients and visiting suppliers, finding time to manage finances can be difficult. Our accounts solutions put your real-time business finance information in your pocket.

Sage bookkeeping software applications use innovative cloud technology. Connect with your bank and use customised dashboards for instant access to your accounts receivable and accounts payable. Accounts management is simple and estimating your firm’s financial health is a thing of the past.
