21 Jul 5 Ways Chiropractors Benefit from Cloud Bookkeeping
As a future ready company, Two Roads encourages chiropractors to utilize the cloud when running their practices, especially when it involves the complexities of business financials. In the bookkeeping world, we use the cloud to store and manage our Partners’ accounts and we call this practice “cloud bookkeeping.” If you’re a chiropractor who’s still using pen and paper or traditional computer software to track and store important financial information, cloud-based bookkeeping is an opportunity you should consider. Here are five benefits you could enjoy regularly just by switching to the cloud!
1. You’ll have access to your financial information anytime, anywhere.
Cloud-based bookkeeping allows you around the clock access to all of your financial information from anywhere you have an Internet connection. Cloud bookkeeping also allows multiple people to access your records with their own username and password, which makes outsourcing your bookkeeping to a remote provider a viable option.
2. You’ll never lose another file.
Imagine your computer crashes right as you finally finish entering six months worth of accounts receivable. Although you did click “Save” somewhere along the line, all of the data is corrupted, and you have to start all over. Did I mention your taxes are due tomorrow? If this really did happen, you would be in a pretty sticky situation, especially if your schedule is booked with routine patient care. However, if you’re bookkeeping in the cloud, none of your entries would be lost because cloud storage backs up all of your information in real time.
3. You’ll be confident that your entries are up-to-date and accurate.
With cloud bookkeeping software, you can ensure that your information is always up-to-date and accurate. The cloud backs up every entry in real time and the software stays current through automatic updates. If cloud technicians have figured out how to make your program run better, you’ll be able to use the new version of the software almost instantly. Because cloud bookkeeping encourages multi-user access, more people can review and verify your accounts.
4. You’ll save time so you can focus on things that make you money.
Cloud-based bookkeeping saves you a lot of time, which in turn saves you a lot of money. It also decreases your expenditures on office supplies and software updates. It’s easy to use, so it requires very little training and increases productivity, so you’ll be saving even more money on labor cost. Think about how much time you spend right now doing bookkeeping the traditional way. What could you be doing instead? Switching to the cloud will give you back that time so you can acquire more patients, attend conferences, and focus on other things that make you money.
5. Your practice and patient financial information will stay secure.
Cloud-based bookkeeping is much more secure than bookkeeping by hand or conventional software that backs up to your hard drive or USB. Data stored in the cloud is also protected by many complex firewalls, so it is nearly impossible to hack. The average computer’s hard drive, however, is susceptible to even the most elementary spyware and malware infestations.
At Two Roads, we treat our partners as family, which means giving them the best results with the best technology available.
