We have migrated many of our clients bookkeeping functions from spreadsheets or even non existent systems to online accounting software packages. This has provided the client, accountant and bookkeeper access to live information anytime, anyplace provided they have internet access.
This has also given the client access to avast array of reports and management information. They now know where they are with outstanding invoice and which customers are still in arrears.
We have successfully achieved this with a restaurant chain recently allowing them to synchronize the accounting systems between two separate locations giving real time accounting info for the Directors, enabling them to make better informed decisions.
