Use The Cloud for Effective and Efficient Small Business Management

Posted by Amrik Randhawa on July 11, 2012 at 8:30 PM

Small Business professionals wear many hats and have many priorities. Achieving success with a small business is a balancing act that requires discipline, tenacity and knowledge. Knowing who your competitors are and what they offer, understanding your own unique value proposition and being able to deliver consistently strong service/products are all key components of running a small business.

The priorities are many and one of the often overlooked ones is your accounting. Piling receipts in a desk drawer or shoebox until days before tax time is a common mistake many small businesses make. As is lax invoice management and ineffective cost controls. Small businesses should have complete control of their finances at all times, not just tax time. To be able to invoice a customer on the spot with an iPad or quickly access a P&L report from anywhere, add an expense right at the moment it was incurred, in real time or identify costs as a percentage of income are more the norm for successful small businesses. Knowing which customer invoices are overdue and exactly how much sales tax you need to remit and when should be at your fingertips.

Antiquated accounting programs that have seemingly endless layers of complexity slow the proper financial management to a crawl. Cloud based Kashoo on the other hand, can be a small business person’s best tool to do exactly what they need to, simply and easily – without the confusion and accessibility issues of computer based software. Securely logging in from home, the office or on your iPad to access all of your real time financial data allows for effective and efficient management of your business.
