Go Cloud Securely With better Financial Budget, Planning and Forecasting Tools
Do you need powerful, easy-to-use budgeting, forecasting and planning tools that are accessible from any device—on the go or in the office? Moving financials to a secure private cloud is a simple and safe way to achieve this.
A financial budget is a critical tool for your business and it allows you to control performance and achieve your goals. A financial budget sets future expectations and provides a guidepost against which you can measure your actual financial performance. The ability to securely access that tool from anywhere, anytime comes with immediate value to the C-suite.
- Make budgeting and forecasting easier for all budget-contributing professionals
- Put an end to back-and-forth emailing of budget spreadsheets
- Make organization-wide budget collaboration easier
- Manage and synch multiple budgets in one system
- Accomplish day-to-day tasks with more efficiency, more intelligent data and more focus to drive profitability
But what about security, compliance, data ownership and control in the cloud?
Many cloud-based financial software services only offer a public environment and offer limited control over upgrades and other changes. This is why choosing the right cloud provider is critical. A full-service cloud accounting provider will offer…
- Tailored cloud environments with improved security over in house sytems
- A variety of solutions from which to choose
- More control in the hands of the customer
- More personalized service (The last thing you want is for your financial processes to come to a standstill just because your cloud provider is “too big” to answer the phone)

Make the Day-to-Day Exciting Again
Enterprise CFOs & CEOs with investor relations requirements, as well as owners of changing small businesses, have heavy expectations placed on them. They have to make big decisions that will improve financial effectiveness, boost cash flow, fuel growth and drive profitability.
Making big decisions requires accurate and timely data with insightful reporting, but it also requires innovative thinking. A cloud based accounting solution can deliver the business intelligence you need to make informed decisions, but equally important—the right solution will also make day-to-day tasks more efficient and less prone to errors caused by manual re-keying. With all of that out of the way, decision makers have more time to focus on big picture innovation that grows profitability.
