Cloud

Cloud computing is a storage service that allows businesses to use third-party servers via internet connectivity. The remote servers hosted on the internet can store, manage and process data. The cloud can be a beneficial service for you as it has easy access and files cannot be lost or damaged.

Additionally, the cloud provides a secure way to store data from any potential threats. Many organisations may have concerns when it comes to adopting this service. However, cloud providers have superior security measures which allows data to be more secure than on premises data storage.

Cloud accounting is the practice of using an accounting system accessed through the internet servers. All functions are performed off – site, not on the user’s desktops. Using this software frees businesses from having to install and maintain software.
