What’s the fuss about the cloud?

The cloud has revolutionised accounting and helped give businesses instant access to how they’re performing and tools to speed up efficiency and productivity. All you need is an internet connection and you can log in wherever you are, in the home, on holiday, at your desk, on a job.

Secure & reliable

Similar to Internet Banking which you’ve been doing for years! Safer than keeping your data in your office which could be affected by disaster or stolen.

On the same page in real-time

Cloud-based systems are online real-time software programmes that enable us to share accounting and other information. But unlike regular software you don’t need to buy and update it. Using the cloud means we’re all working from the same information, not different versions, so there’s no need to send us anything, it’s all there in one place.

Xero Gold partners

BUSINESS buddy uses Xero, one of the easiest to learn cloud based accounting systems available. It’s created by a NZ company and so it was a natural choice for us, we saw its potential early on and now it’s recognised as an emerging market leader.

We’re Xero Gold partners and we’re very knowledgeable about Xero and all the useful add-ons (like apps for your phone) that you can use with it to help your business run smoothly. These can include client address handling, job specifications, inventory usage, job tracking, invoicing, debtor tracking – everything you need, all interconnected. Centralising through the cloud reduces the time you need to spend on all of these activities and allows your BUSINESS buddy to produce meaningful reports to show how you’re doing. We can then easily compare these with benchmarks and targets to keep you on track.
