No one likes to update software. Like hitting the snooze button on your alarm in the morning, it always seems easier to click the “remind me later” button and kick that task down the line for some undetermined date in the future. The result of this is, of course, that you might end up never updating the software and find yourself left with old or obsolete technology.
As an accounting services professional, I sometimes encounter business owners using very old versions of QuickBooks. For these individuals, I recommend making the switch from a desktop version of QuickBooks to QuickBooks Online.
Not only will this save you the hassle of having to do regular software updates (all updates will occur on the platform automatically), but you’ll also gain access to a number of great features that aren’t available on the desktop versions of QuickBooks.
With QuickBooks Online you can work from any device at any time, whether it be Mac, PC, smartphone or tablet. As a cloud-based app, your accounting services professional will be able to instantly access your files. You’ll be able to auto-schedule and send out invoices. And you get great integrations with over 300 cloud based apps.
