A significant number of UK businesses can now access their business software in the cloud enabling them to work anywhere, at any time. As businesses continue to move to the cloud, they can access services 24/7 on any mobile device, revolutionising the way they interact with colleagues and customers. We are no longer tied to our desks working countless hours on admin, we can now roam free and work on the go.

But how do you know when to move to a cloud accounting solution?

Take a product like Sage Intacct – an accounting solution that is completely cloud-based and has revolutionised the way in which businesses control their processes.

How do I know it’s time to move to the cloud?

Moving to a cloud solution can be daunting, but it can change the way you work in the most beneficial way. Knowing when to move to the cloud can be confusing, so allow us to provide you with some pointers to help you decide if your business is ready to take the leap.

Is your business rapidly growing?

As your business is growing, you may begin to notice that your existing system is restrictive and limited. Outgrowing software is a common issue for many growing businesses, this is when it might be worth looking at cloud systems with greater flexibility and functionality.
By upgrading to a cloud-only solution you are opening up access to large amounts of storage allowing your business to grow with ease. Gain the flexibility and scalability you need to work whenever, wherever without the hassle of a slow, restrictive system.

Is your business becoming more mobile?

Technology is shifting to the cloud and businesses are using their computers less and mobile devices more. If your business is becoming more mobile and your staff are working on-the-go or from home, a cloud accounting solution enables access to your data on any device.

Is your business software slowing you down?

Slow software can be a nightmare as it becomes difficult for you to effectively manage your business and its processes. You may be experiencing inaccurate details, system errors and day-to-day problems that cause not only your system, but your whole business to slow down.

With a cloud solution you no longer need server hosting or infrastructure, significantly reducing your overheads and upkeep/maintenance charges.
