Blockchain Changing Accounting

Is Blockchain Changing Accounting?

The accounting and finance sphere is buzzing about blockchain technology, and for good reason. As technology evolves, blockchain is changing accounting, and accountants and financial professionals need to be prepared for its impact, though its potential impact remains relatively unknown.

What is blockchain

Blockchain, often associated with bitcoin, is a digital ledger of transactions that is stored publically. There is no centralized data hub; rather, it is hosted by millions of computers and is accessible to all internet users.

This technology presents an opportunity for accountants to create and use a new kind of ledger. Unlike traditional accounting software, blockchain is secure and cannot be hacked or corrupted. Blockchain is durable, transparent, and decentralized.

Blockchain and accounting

Like with all new technology introduced to the accounting realm, some are concerned that blockchain will eventually beat out human accountants, rendering traditional accountants useless. It’s unlikely that blockchain will have such devastating effects on the workforce, but that isn’t to say that accountants shouldn’t learn all they can about blockchain and prepare to evolve alongside the technology.

In fact, much like with the onslaught of cloud-based technologies, accountants who embrace blockchain will be viewed as superior in the workforce, having the knowledge, training, and experience to guide clients in making software decisions, in addition to other strategic and advisory services. The arrival of blockchain on the scene is simply changing the role of the accountant, in the same ways that technology and automation is changing roles in all industries.

The future

The future of blockchain is uncertain and unmapped, but you should definitely plan for it to make a splash. Blockchain presents a new frontier to accountants, and the technology can be used in myriad ways, potentially in ways we haven’t yet considered. The Big Four accounting firms are already embracing blockchain and bitcoin.

Flexi for your future

As accounting evolves, so should you and your business. Flexi provides flexible solutions to keep you apprised of the new frontier.

Trusted by enterprises for 25+ years, Flexi has deployed thousands of implementations around the globe and gained experience in providing you with important capabilities to grow your business, like the need for:

  • Continuous close capabilities and easy consolidations of financials and/or currencies.
  • Flexible software that can quickly adapt to changing business needs or market requirements.

Hotel Accounting

Hotel Accounting Challenges Happening Right Now

Many industries are experiencing an upheaval when it comes to the accounting sphere, but the hospitality industry is experiencing specific and unique challenges. Hotel owners and operators know that solid accounting software is a must to manage the many unique dilemmas that tend to crop up.

Among these challenges are enterprise resource planning, working with a variety of employee types, outsourcing, and managing data.

Enterprise resource planning

It would be nice if every hotel company could build an enterprise system to manage its unique accounting needs, but this isn’t always the most realistic approach. Many management companies, in fact, deal with a variety of expectations, timelines, and processes, rendering a one-size-fits-all enterprise system virtually useless.

According to HotelManagement.net, building partnerships is the most reasonable method of managing this issue. Month-to-month subscriptions to hotel-specific solutions allow users to onboard quickly using user-friendly interfaces and familiar concepts.

Employee types

Hotels tend to employ a variety of employee types–full-timers, part-timers, employees who work for tips, etc. And some may work at multiple locations, where staffing requirements may vary.

Establishing a balance is necessary: hoteliers must be able to monitor labor costs, manage overtime, oversee payroll transactions, and run and distribute financial reports. A robust, cloud-based accounting solution like Flexi can accommodate these unique needs.

To outsource or not to outsource?

Unsurprisingly, hoteliers often have competing priorities, from sales to customer service to asset management and beyond. As a best practice, consider outsourcing. Managing all aspects of hotel accounting is a big ask and resources are finite.

Data, data, data

Analysis paralysis is a living, breathing thing. Hotels collect a lot of data, but the struggle is how to track and interpret that data. For this reason,, a centralized platform is key. Being able to import data to a centralized hub and slice and dice it from there helps to not only create, but also to analyze, a variety of reports to keep your hotel’s performance in tip-top shape.

Flexi for hotel accounting

Flexi solutions enable companies in various industries, including the hospitality industry, to streamline accounting processes.

Flexible posting and open architecture, with rules-driven engines, enable you to manage your accounting processes in a cost-effective and highly efficient manner.

With Flexi, access a fully integrated suite of applications, including general ledger, accounts payables, fixed assets, purchasing, and capital projects, and analyze financial statements and track performance of your lines of business, profit centers, and locations.

Artificial Intelligence and Accounting

When Artificial Intelligence and Accounting Collide

Fear is circulating in the accounting industry that humans (or accountants) will soon be replaced by artificial intelligence. But it is becoming increasingly clear that robots won’t cut it alone in the accounting sphere–while helpful, automation is best served with equal parts human intelligence.

With the rise of automation and cloud-based services, many traditional accounting tasks have been automated–this is true. Machines will always be better and faster at crunching numbers, but the benefit to accounting professionals is that this ensures more data accuracy than ever before–and offers time back on the calendars of busy accountants, freeing them up to analyze, strategize, and advise.

According to Pymnts.com, accountants are increasingly expected to serve as strategic advisors to their clients. Small businesses are becoming more and more frustrated, according to a Seed survey last year, that their banks aren’t providing the advisory services they feel they need, and that role is now being placed squarely on the accountant.

Embracing the cloud

While fear circulates about automation as the death of the modern accountant, many accountants are embracing the change and viewing it as a tool for forging deeper connections. While the role of the accountant is rapidly changing, the industry continues to dictate needs that cannot be satisfied by computers alone, thereby elevating the accountant’s role and situating accountants as leaders of strategy and advisory services.
