Why Poor Processes Will Slow Your Accounting Department Down

Accounting processes can take a seemingly exorbitant amount of time when time is of the essence. Increasingly, locally-installed software is more time consuming and less convenient than cloud-based solutions, leading to poor, manual processes, longer wait times for data, and higher rates of inaccuracy in data.

Here are the top processes that are slowing your accounting department down.

  • You’re still relying on Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel was once the industry standard, but today’s business’ complex accounting needs demand more. If you’re still reliant on Microsoft Excel, finding a new solution is going to be the key to implementing better processes to speed up your accounting department.

  • Your team members could be using different versions of data

If you’re not using a central repository of data that can be accessed from a web browser, then there might be different variations floating around in your colleague’s inboxes or saved to their desktops. If users are accessing and using (and making important business decisions) based on varying versions of data, how can you be sure that you’re operating at full capacity?

  • Access is limited

On-premise solutions are installed locally on your computer. This can be tricky when employees are traveling or for whatever reason cannot get into the office due to a family emergency, inclement weather, or otherwise. By using a cloud-based service, everyone can access the same data with any device with an internet connection, so a business can stay on track even if key players can’t make it to their machines.

  • Security is compromised

When data is hacked, stolen, or otherwise compromised, business screeches to a halt. With cloud-based solutions, data is more secure because it is encrypted and stored on remote servers. Enhanced security only serves to keep your business moving at all costs.
