It is commonplace for businesses to suffer from (otherwise avoidable payroll or bookkeeping errors) if they would have purchased accounting software. Regardless of what industry your business belongs to, or its size, an accounting slip-up can cost a business dearly, and nobody wants that, especially in the COVID-19 era. Having acquired long years of experience in the accounting software domain, we at Rockford Computer LLC want to shed light on three solid insights that show that manual accounting is an impasse, and instead prove that accounting software can be a top loss-cutting tool for businesses.
- Manual accounting does not find many takers nowadays because it is not fail-proof. Manual handling of accounts can lead to erred data collection, calculation, and reporting. Such embarrassing and loss-ridden scenarios can very well be avoided by installing accounting software that typically comes pre-equipped with different kinds of accounting automation and technologies. As a result, accounting tasks become accurate and timely. And because accounting software curtails mistakes, it promotes more productivity. For example, if you were to do manual accounting, the task of invoice creation would be a daunting exercise, and not to mention you’d have to be extra cautious when jotting down the invoice details. Post-which, you would have to sit down for cross-checks and verifications to ensure that no errors have been committed.
The aforesaid clutter goes away when there is accounting software involved. With just a few clicks on the main dashboard, the all-automated invoice generation system creates specific and correct invoices at specific times.
- In financials, accuracy is everything. If manual accounting is still a part of your work culture then certainly (and unfortunately) your accounts team may be spending most of its work hours running pillar to post to ensure that all the financial data is up to the mark. Fun fact: 9 times out of 10 accountants are likely to detect elementary errors in financial paperwork that has been filled out manually. If such major blips were to occur regularly, you can only imagine the scale of the losses your organization would have to deal with.
The availability of the latest accounting software lets you take advantage of the automated features, and lives up to the promise of recording, storing, tracking, and reproducing accurate financial data any time of day.
- After accuracy, speed in accounting activities is of paramount importance. Between manual account audits and automated audits, which one would you prefer? The latter of course. Time is money and the use of accounting software ensures that the accounting workload does not eat into your business hours.
Accounting software is equipped with inbuilt features that perform all the data-centric tasks in a jiffy, giving your manpower more time to attend to other important (and unbillable) work duties. Not to mention, automated accounting enhances data latency; you can be more hands-on with real-time accounting data.
It is a no-brainer that accounting software is going to continue to redefine accounting practices. And that’s why businesses of all industries, and sizes, need to adopt it, too.
