Xero Roadshow in Brisbane
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Xero Roadshow in Brisbane. It was such a wonderful event, one thing that really caught my attention was the evolution of technology.
Many business owners tend to keep doing things the way they have always been done, sometimes missing the opportunities to implement new technologies that could save time and money.
Think of the iPhone, it was initially an iPod released in 2001 for the sole purpose of playing music. In 2007, the iPod had evolved into the iPhone, however the biggest technological change did not come until 2008 with the release of the App Store. I for one, have quite a number of apps on my phone, I sometimes wonder how I managed to function before Apps came along. My business has certainly improved with access to business apps on my phone.
What does this have to do with bookkeeping and accounting? Well, just like the evolution of the iPhone, accounting software’s have also evolved, no longer are the only options desktop versions of the software, many of the leading software providers have cloud based software’s and mobile apps. Xero also have an App Marketplace, which allows users to connect over 700 apps into their books to improve their invoice processing, reporting, inventory tracking, compliance documentation and marketing just to name a few.
If you are still using desktop versions of the software and want to know more about cloud accounting systems, or you are already using a cloud accounting system and want more information on how apps can help your business evolve, please get in contact with me.
