Are you making the most of technology in your business?
Technology is rapidly changing the way we do business. Many businesses are getting rid of the pen and paper for a tablet, or running their business from a laptop instead of a cashbook. It is something we are utilising here in our firm – and we are LOVING it!
Cloud technology, computer programs that run from your internet browser, allow you to run your business from any and multiple devices. This has allowed business owners the freedom of being able to run their businesses from more places than just the business premises. In most cases it is reducing the running costs of the business and increasing revenues by giving business owners real time information on their business performance.
All you need is an internet connection.
One program that utilises the cloud is Dropbox. Dropbox allows you to access and edit all your work files from your web browser or mobile. No more folders in storage boxes. No more paper on the kitchen table. No more rummaging through said boxes when looking for a document from two years ago. It’s all online and all you have to do is type the documents name to search for it. Good thing is, you can share it to your accountants too for them to access your files real-time. Dropbox is a great tool to use.
How many times have you had to search for a document for your accountant and spent hours looking for it? Now that’s a thing of the past.
Another cloud program we are loving is MyProsperity. MyProsperity is your personal wealth portal and gets feeds from the ASX, RP Data and Redbook to give you an up to date snap-shot of your net worth. MyProsperity securely links all your financial accounts such as superannuation, mortgage, personal loans, credit cards, bank accounts, shares. You don’t need to worry about security as well as it offers a bank level security. You can also invite your accountant and financial planner into the software too so there is less back and forth with information!
