Cloud accounting has officially landed on the scene and is here to stay. While Australian organisations have been slow to adopt this new arrival, Software Advice found over 50% of small businesses are considering moving their accounting to the cloud.

Xero is a relatively new cloud accounting software that allows business owners to spend more time focusing on their core business, rather than managing their accounts manually.

Cloud-based accounting systems are paving the way for greater efficiency in your organisation. Instead of purchasing expensive, high-maintenance IT infrastructure, organisations access their accounting software via the internet, for a fixed monthly fee. This allows them to offload IT hassles and concentrate their financial and operational resources on their core business.
