Technology has made strides in streamlining repetitive and often time consuming processes in the Accounting industry, from using software to simplify recording invoices, to producing faster, more accurate and timely financial reports.
However, if your accounting firm isn’t set up with the proper IT infrastructure, there are substantial, negative impacts on your business performance - ranging from frustratingly long periods of downtime to even experiencing a halt in productivity entirely.
Having your accounting firm run at its best goes hand in hand with tailored IT solutions, from none other than the leading IT experts at Simple Biz. Our experienced team ensures your IT accounting processes are smooth, enabling, and supportive for all your staff.
At Simple Biz, we discover and identify new ways to enhance your IT system for your accounting business - boosting efficiency and productivity for all your staff. In saying that, we’ve outlined some of the biggest opportunities the accounting industry faces with technology today.
1. IT Security
Since accounting firms hold a vast amount of sensitive financial information, it’s unsurprising that they’re prime targets for cyber attacks. This puts security as one of the top priorities for accounting firms to focus on when running their business.
2. Disaster Prevention
Accounting firms seek preventative measures to avoid IT problems in the first place. Many other IT providers only react to the issue when it’s too late and the damage is already done. At Simple Biz, we minimise your risk for preventable cyber attacks with robust disaster prevention plans, so you’ll rest easy with peace of mind.
3. IT Stability
One of the most common challenges we see is when accounting firms run different versions of accounting software, causing all sorts of issues with performance. With strict deadlines to work with, the last thing professional accountants want to deal with is slow or unstable computer systems that crash or freeze.
4. Speed of IT systems
Accounting firms require software and IT systems that streamline and fasten their accounting processes, which allows valuable amounts of time and money to be saved in the long term.
5. Lost billing
Accountants need to be constantly on top of billings, receipts, invoices, and other details of cash flow. Lost billings add to the chaos and make for many difficult situations on top of tight deadlines.
6. Working Remotely
Accountants can work flexibly thanks to the improvements in IT accounting technologies over the years, whether it’s working from home, office, client business location or anywhere else. This means accountants need reliable access to their accounting data from your computer systems anytime anywhere without issues.
Keeping compliant with frequent changes to accounting laws, standards, and regulations is a challenge for many professional accountants. Poorly set up IT infrastructure causes this to be even more difficult than it needs to be. IT should enhance your accounting firm’s processes - not hinder it.
8. Reducing Downtime
Among the most frustrating challenges that accountants face from inefficient IT systems is dealing with downtime. Deadlines aren’t delayed because of internal issues, which makes it all the more stressful for accountants to do their job efficiently with IT-induced downtime.
At Simple Biz, we take the time to deeply understand the range of challenges you face in the accounting industry and what exactly success means for your firm. We’re all about fostering long term partnerships with you by providing ongoing support, ensuring you're readily informed of our IT solutions and processes, as well as always being available for when you need us.
