Ask us about desktop and cloud based software solutions

aboutBusiness can help you with either. 


On line accounting is great if you need it but there are many good reasons for businesses to continue to use and enhance desktop solutions.

When you purchase a web-based accounting solution, you generally only get access to the one program or part of a program for a monthly fee. 

There are lots of web based software applications for specific things, like:  accounting, job costing, job scheduling, staff timesheets, etc.  In most cases, you pay an additional monthly fee for each extra service you add, just like your phone.  

Business owners often buy on-line software without any overall plan and we see clients who have ended up with disparate systems that don't talk to each other.  Even free on-line software may not work out to be economical if you end up with a lot of unconnected software that takes time to get all the information you need on a day-to-day basis.

Look at your business as a whole before you choose your on-line business applications. 

  • Are you going to be working remotely a lot?
  • Do you need to access more than one program remotely? 
  • Do you get support from your accountant a lot? 
  • How much will it save you if you give your professional advisors permanent on-line access to your files? 

There are many solutions to these questions, ask before you get tied in to lots of little monthly fees that soon add up to costly monthly fees. 

Many of our clients who are not using web-based accounting systems access all their desktop files and software by cheap and freely available remote access to their desktop computers. Many are able to make use of the free connections available. You do not need flashy software or lots of monthly fees to work remotely.   

While we like web-based software, we put no pressure on our clients to change unless you want it for yourselves.  We have been accessing our clients desktop computers remotely for years to provide support for desktop software and will continue to do so while there is a need for it.
