The Numbers Are In! Cloud-Based Solutions Found to Outperform Other Software

By: GURUS Solutions


Spot two mistakes in the following scenario:

Jack owns a business that recently opened a second office overseas. An issue encountered on his new employee’s first payday makes Jack realize that his business has completely outgrown its manual accounting system. He needs a modern system able to scale up his business to ensure that both his offices thrive. After discussing the issue with colleagues, Jack opts for an on-premise accounting solution. He asks Kyle the intern to install it and breaths a sigh of relief! The solution appears to work well until, at quarter's end, he finds that the expenses associated with it not only reduced his profit margin, but also stagnated his business' growth!

Jack's first mistake? Not doing proper research, of course! Had he relied on more reliable sources, Jack might have discovered that on-premise solutions are quickly becoming irrelevant because they cannot compete with web-based solutions!

Research produced by Software Advice, one of the world’s leading authorities on software selection, demonstrates that web-based financial recording (that is, financial recording produced on the cloud) is cheaper and more efficient than on-premise solutions. These positives are rooted in the fact that cloud solutions can be accessed remotely from any device with Internet access. They grant every employee—wherever they may be conducting business—with full visibility. Visibility allows everyone to connect with the resources needed to track projects and conduct business, which can ultimately lead to greater profit margins, overall growth, and happy employees! Cloud-based software is so easy to use that a wide variety of industries have already begun making the switch from on-premise to cloud-based!

Jack's second mistake? Asking Kyle the intern to install his solution! Once a business solution is chosen, having it installed by someone who lacks the proper credentials is imprudent. Sure, had Jack chosen the right cloud-based software, asking Kyle the intern to install it might have saved the company a few dollars. But, as is the case with most online software solutions, only cloud professionals can unlock their full potential!
