Business owners face the daily challenge of how to keep their business profitable and competitive as technology advances. One way to overcome that obstacle is by employing automation says Registered chartered accounting firm Drumm Nevatt & Associates.
Automated accounting is the use of software to complete traditional accounting tasks. Finance automation can make life easier for your business, saving you time and effort.
“All businesses look should implement automated accounting and bookkeeping into their business strategy if they haven’t already,” says Craig Nevatt, Director at DNA.
Fortunately, automation has reached a level of sophistication where it’s affordable and practical for small businesses as well as large corporations. Here are some ways automating various business processes can help your small business remove some of the grunt work and enjoy greater profitability.
“Automation is important in being able to successfully manage all aspects of your business regardless of its size. Invoices, receipts and transactions can quickly take over your day if you are not prepared,” comments Craig.
Without a doubt, one of the biggest benefits of automation in your business is that it saves you time! As a business owner, a lot of your time will be spent selling your products or services, so the last thing you want to be doing is processing paperwork.
With automation, you can remove repetitive tasks and drastically reduce error-prone spreadsheet work. Tedious activities like faxing, copying, and the physical storing of documents can be eliminated with automation.
Automation helps avoid the pain of gathering and compiling data. With automation, you have access to detailed and easy to read reports of your financial situation. “Having a sound understanding of your business financial situation is vital to better decision making and long-term stability,” adds Craig.
Automation can also help protect your confidential data from breaches, cyberattacks, and other types of unauthorized access.
Another surprising benefit of automation in accounting is that it can improve other areas of the business. With automation most of the labour-intensive finance processes are automated, which means that the human resources used for such tasks can now be put to better use, for instance, to give better customer service or dedicate more time to sell your product or service.
