4 Ways Technology Can Help Your Accounting Firm This Tax Season

For CPA firms, Troinet offers benefits such as customized storage for databases, hosted applications, and file security while eliminating the need for a data center or internal IT support team. Working with us will improve the quality and efficiency of the services that you offer to your clients.

Check out these four incredible benefits of moving to the cloud with Troinet:

 

  1. Secure Data

What would happen if your tablet was stolen, or a fire occurred in your building? You could lose your valuable data, the trust of your clients, and a lot of monay!

With Troinet, all of your information is safely and securely stored off-site, so a theft or a disaster won’t shut down your business.

Not only do we offer data protection from these types of losses, but we offers an alternative to storage. Files are backed up and stored without having to make deletions or purchase additional devices.

 

  1. Hosted Software

The best perk of choosing Troinet for your CPA firm may be the ability to use hosted software, eliminating the need for servers and software to purchase. Unlike traditional software, which is distributed and deployed on-site, hosted versions of accounting software are designed for web deployment.

Take QuickBooks, for instance. By choosing the hosted version, you eliminate the need for a dedicated server (as recommended by Intuit.) Because QuickBooks is installed at the provider’s location, it is managed and upgraded by the providers. Users therefore have access to the most current, virus-free versions of the software.

 

  1. Remote working

Access your system any time, any place. With mobility being the norm instead of the exception, businesses need easy access to their files, software, and client database no matter where they are.

As long as you have an internet connection, you and your staff can access everything you need to work productively via the cloud from any device. Imagine the boost to morale during tax season if you could work from home after having dinner with your family instead of spending 12 hour days at the office!

 

  1. Client Portals

Gone will be the days of waiting for clients to mail in crucial documents, especially at the last minute. CPAs are implementing customer portals for gathering financial information from clients. These portals offer professional services a more secure route for clients to send (and receive) their tax documents and financial records.

Troinet can keep your accounting firm running at peak capacity, while enabling you to become greener and more mobile without sacrificing convenience or security.
