Accounting: You know what it is and why you have to do it as a business owner, but have you given much thought to how you do it? No, we don’t mean your woeful attitude while doing it, but literally how. What systems do you use, and do your processes actually add any value to your business?
If you’re still stuck in the prehistoric times of traditional accounting, we’ve come to your rescue with our time machine to bring you to the digital age of accounting (don’t worry, you can thank us later).
What is Digital Accounting?
Digital accounting refers to the creation, storage, transfer, and management of financial information in an electronic format with the employment of technology. This method of accounting offers advantages over traditional accounting that makes the switch worthwhile for your business. Read on for the top 4 reasons you need to take your accounting digital as a property manager.
Why Should I Make the Switch?
Improves Efficiency and Productivity
Digital accounting is both more convenient and more efficient for you and your team. Having one central, online place to access, update, and manage all of your company’s financial information makes digital accounting more convenient than traditional methods. Plus, your information is accessible from anywhere you need to be. You’ll also never have to dig through binders of documents and receipts to find what you need – enhancing your company’s organization and record keeping. With this, you’ll see a boost in overall efficiency and increased productivity.
Traditional accounting methods reliant on physical documents and paper records are vulnerable to being lost, stolen, or destroyed – think a clumsy staff member, bitter business partner, or even potential disasters such as fires or floods. While digitization comes with its own security issues, there are more steps you can take when you go digital to protect sensitive information. For one, employing a cloud-based accounting system will go a long way in ensuring your data is always backed up and secure.
Boosts Reporting Accuracy
Nobody’s perfect, and we’ll be the first to admit that sometimes numbers make us go a little crossed-eyed after one too many hours. The reality is, humans are prone to error, and it’s bound to happen at some point if you stick to traditional accounting. By making the switch to digital accounting, old processes are automated and your reporting accuracy will increase tenfold, giving you better control over your finances. Even better, with ManageGo’s leading accounting software, you’ll be able to pull reports on all of your finances, so you always have an accurate view of your cash flow.
