From time to time, your business may need advice. But unless your advisor can take an in-depth look inside your business, what good is their advice?
Businesses take advice and input from many outside parties, most commonly from accountants or financial advisors. The biggest problem with this is that your accountant rarely has access to up-to-date and accurate financial data with which to make their judgements.
Usually if someone oversees your finances they will only get access to your books every quarter or perhaps only on an annual basis. Is this really enough for them to provide the best possible advice to your business? Unless they can see the day-to-day picture of your finances it makes it difficult for them to give advice that is timely and accurate.
In the past, this problem has never had a solution unless you employed someone to become part of your business and manage your finances. However, that doesn’t have to be the case anymore. Cloud computing makes it possible for your accountant, mentor or even potential investors to get access to your data.
How much better would the advice from your accountant be if they could immediately see your data and discuss it with you over the phone? If you would like your accountant to do this, simply sign up for an account with WinWeb and grant them access.
If they still refuse to accept new technology despite the help it can provide to your business, it might be time to look elsewhere for your business advice!
