There’s no doubt many of your clients have moved to the cloud, but are they reaping the most benefits possible by being there?
More businesses are converting their operations to cloud-based software solutions or Software as a Service (SaaS) options, and one area where so- called “SaaSification” can have the greatest impact is the business back office. Moving to cloud-based software processes will help your clients streamline workflow, operate more efficiently, generate accurate and instant data, and help scale their business at a more rapid pace.
In addition, automation can help your clients stay compliant with state sales tax regulations. Here are three reasons your clients – and every business for that matter – should SaaSify their back office.
1. Improving Back Office Workflow
A company’s back office keeps the business humming. While many businesses are quick to adopt new technology solutions for its front end, back-end operations could also greatly benefit from the same solutions.
Desktop software that doesn’t integrate with other systems and offers partial, disjointed views slows down back office workflow. SaaS software offers a comprehesive view of financials, customer data and previous work completed, while also allowing your client to take action within their cloud programs and follow up on accounts receivable, payables and other functions. SaaS programs also update to the latest versions instantly, so there is no worry about version control.
Here’s where you can really assert your trusted advisor status: help your clients upgrade their accounting, accounts receivable, accounts payable, CRM, shipping logistics and sales tax compliance to cloud-based software to help the team work better together and more efficiently optimize the business’ back office workflow.
