Five reasons to move to the cloud

By CCIWA Editor 

Flexibility 

You can access all your data from anywhere you have an internet connection. This allows you to update payroll information or check your inventory from home, on the go, or from the other side of the world. 

Low maintenance/low cost 

Because you are accessing software as an online service, it takes the headache out of updates. You pay a monthly subscription fee rather than buying software packages. 

Safe storage 

Storing your data in the cloud means that if your business is hit by fire, flood or even just a power outage, you can still access the information you need to get things back up and running. 

Up-to-date metrics 

You and your accountant can access up-to-the-minute information on all aspects of the business as needed. It also allows for faster, more accurate account-keeping. 

Multi-user access 

Cloud-based data makes collaboration easier, eliminating the need to port data around via email or memory sticks.
