What is accounting software?

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

We know 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 work at can be difficult. It’s essential to have real-time information about your business’ finances. Our accounts software gives you accurate information about the financial health of your business and allows you to manage cash flow.
