On to the cloud… Accounting and finance applications have been expanding into the cloud ever since the advent of the internet. In Seattle, Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure are betting their future on the cloud which has had a huge impact on the local community. I see more and more cloud based accounting and financial applications that perform critical business functions. Each makes the promise to bring cost savings and efficiencies to the business owner.
To determine how cloud applications were impacting our clients, I surveyed our associates (contract CFOs, controllers, accountants and bookkeepers) to see how extensive cloud-based applications are being used.
