Sage 50c Top Tips 5

Tip 5. How to Access Your Accounting Data from Anytime / Anywhere

Users of traditional desktop accounting software had a big beef: critically important data was usually stored on local ‘silo’d’ computer infrastructure often located in the office.   This, of course, had a number of drawbacks:

  • Wasting a weekend at the office – how many times have you wanted to access even basic accounting data or processes over the weekend? You want to analyse receivables for the next month, or are interested in year-to-date sales versus forecasts and targets? Or you can’t remember order histories for an important customer and have a meeting with them early Monday morning?

Or maybe you wanted to create some customer invoices to speed payments and cash flow?

Of course, the only way to answer any of those questions was to climb in the car and hike down to the office. You might have to boot up your computer system. You’d look up the information and while you were at it spend some time glancing at other data. Before you knew it, you’d spent half of your Saturday or Sunday away from home.

  • Experiencing undue stress levels while on the road – or perhaps you’ve travelled afar, to a conference or a customer’s business location. You get there and suddenly receive a phone call from your finance team: a customer is querying an invoice and they need more information from you before payment is released. Of course, you need to see the backup data to jog your memory regarding products, order histories, terms, and pricing. So…you instruct your team to email the information. Which means they spend valuable time collecting data, formatting it for you, and putting together an email. In the meantime, you try to focus on your meeting, but the stress of resolving this issue is stressful and distracting.

Business people today are used to working with a variety of applications offering anytime / anywhere access. And as you consider the above scenarios, you can’t help but wonder why your accounting system doesn’t offer the same remote agile flexibility?

Now it does. And it’s called Sage 50c.
