Most traditional accounting software is outdated and often tedious to use, but if you’re mindful of the ongoing transition towards digital accounts it’s likely you’ll be aware of cloud accounting.

For those of you who aren’t, what sets cloud accounting apart is that data is stored on a remote server referred to as the ‘cloud’ where it’s accessible to all users with an internet connection.

For instance, when you update your status on Facebook or access your bank account on your smartphone or tablet device you’ll be using cloud computing.

It’s nothing new but these methods can also be used to help you run your business.

With various cloud accounting software on the market, all designed to help your business save time and money while also improving efficiency, Sage One is among the market leaders.
