The Benefits of Cloud Accounting Post Pandemic

How Cloud Accounting Played A Vital Role During The Pandemic?

With the ongoing uncertainty around the pandemic and local lockdowns, the impact on some businesses has been devastating. Whilst some sectors have continued to thrive, others are still facing negative effects as a result of lost revenue, income, and customers. Due to this, the pandemic and remote working has led many businesses to examine their financial position, which can prove to be a long and stressful process through traditional accounting solutions.  

With Cloud Accounting Software, however, businesses have a straight-forward understanding of their current finances and can examine the effect of the pandemic on overall business sooner. Cloud Accounting has enabled many businesses to improve on their overall financial stability throughout the pandemic, by having a clear understanding of the whole business, from customers to teams, projects, and services.  

With the increase of teams working remotely, many organisations began looking at cloud solutions and embarked on a digital and financial transformation process. According to Synergy Research, Enterprise spending on cloud infrastructure services reached $65 billion in the third quarter of 2020,  up 28%  from the third quarter of 2019. As more businesses looked to increase efficiency, cloud accounting has helped many businesses to streamline their processes by providing up-to-date, accurate data. This has equipped teams with information that has enabled them to react to changes caused by the pandemic sooner, providing businesses with a scalable solution.
