The services we offer

Accounting software

By switching to cloud accounting records your complete information will be accessible online anytime, anywhere, from any device. Your important electronic business information will no longer be contained only on your hard drive.

Problems with traditional accounting software

  • The data in the system isn’t up to date and neither is the software
  • It only works on one computer and data bounces from place to place. For example, on a USB drive. This is not secure or reliable
  • Only one person has user access. Key people can't access financial and customer details
  • It's costly and complicated to keep backups (if done at all)
  • It's expensive, difficult and time consuming to upgrade the software
  • Customer support is expensive and slow

Benefits of Cloud Accounting

  • Great access - anytime, anywhere and in real-time
  • Cost effective - no initial outlay, no server storage cost, updates included in subscription fee
  • Reliable - more reliable than in-house servers
  • Secure data – Service Provider should offer security to bank level encryption
  • Tailor made - add on apps can help you manage your business the way you want
  • No maintenance - no need to download and install latest versions

The most important benefit is the ability of your accountant to offer real time advice regarding your business finances, through being allowed remote access to the accounting software by you. Your contact at Banks Sheridan can provide a virtual Financial Controller presence to your business, a role, which only large organisations have traditionally benefited,
