What is a Cloud Integration Solution?
One of the biggest problems we see when taking on new non-profit clients is that those who keep the books are becoming burnt out with their volunteer work. This burnout is often due to the constant input of financial documents, chasing documents from previous bookkeepers, and inefficient workflow. Our cloud integration solution for non-profits allows those bookkeepers to manage more efficiently their workflow, keep records in one place and input documents from virtually anywhere! We offer many different forms of service such as data input, training, projections, reporting and more.
What is “The Cloud”?
The “Cloud” is a term used to describe a series of shared servers that have the capability to store and compute data. Not unlike a power grid, resources are shared from servers over a network to provide a powerful system with little to no downtime and plenty of storage for data. More practically, the cloud allows websites to run powerful web applications without having to have the program installed on your computer or testing the computing limit of your browser. In our cloud integration solution, we can store your documentation in the cloud, as well as provide you with easy to use accounting software housed in the cloud. Your bookkeeper will have access to the accounting books from virtually anywhere with an internet connection.
At Covington+ Associates, CPAs Inc., cloud integration accounting includes:
- Set up – This refers to transferring all your business information to the Xero (chart of accounts, accounts payable and receivable, bank accounts, credit card accounts, bank feeds, logging passwords, payment streams etc.)
- Customization – This part of the process is what you use to customize your company/organization invoices or checks (use your company logo, address, etc.) You can also integrate tools such as Bill.com, Hubdoc.com, Expensify, Paypal, Square, Zenpayroll and many more tools.
- Client/Staff training – Once we have your company/organization set up and customized, we schedule a training session for you and your staff which can be done via video/remote or you are more than welcome to come in to our offices.
- Scheduled consultation – It is always good to have any questions or concerns regarding your business/organization accounts clearly answered by your accountant.
