For years, the finance industry has been a little behind the curve when it comes to implementing new technologies. Many businesses are still using spreadsheets, paper invoices, paper checks, stamps and envelopes to manage invoices and payments. They face an important decision: Embrace simple technology, or be left behind.
Forward-thinking businesses are switching to mobile accounting options to handle their finances and accounting—anytime, anywhere. With an opportunity to do business faster, easier and more efficiently, it’s time to consider untethering yourself from your work desk.
Let’s look at a few of the ways that mobile accounting benefits and changes your business for the better.
Increase Productivity and Efficiency
Mobile accounting apps have features built in that help you increase productivity and efficiency. Do you have recurring invoices you send every month, or every week? Mobile accounting benefits you by allowing you to duplicate invoices so that you don’t have to recreate them from scratch…every…single…time.
In some cases, you can automate invoices to have them sent on certain dates at specific times with a simple tap.
Work Wherever, Whenever
With access to mobile accounting, you and your team members don’t have to be in the office to get work done. Mobile accounting apps allow you to work on the go from your phone, or at home on your desktop or laptop computer. Now, you can stay on top of your accounting on your own time—talk about convenience.
Save Money (And The Environment)
Say goodbye to all those paper invoices, checks, envelopes, and stamps. With mobile accounting, everything is electronic and therefore, more cost-effective. You’ll save money (and precious trees) by not having to purchase paper goods every month just to keep your business running. In addition to the cost savings of going paperless, you’ll no longer have to worry about losing a receipt, invoice or check.
With mobile accounting, everything is recorded in the app so you have it in your records and easily accessible 24/7.
Become More Tech-Savvy
When you switch to using mobile accounting, you and your team will naturally become more tech-savvy. Learning to use new software can take some getting used to, but once you’re familiar with the app, the functions will become second nature and you’ll be working smarter and faster in no time.
Don’t let your business get left behind. Stay on top of this new trend in finance and take advantage of all the benefits mobile accounting has to offer. Our new iOS app, Viewpost Invoice, is a good way to get started.
