8 Benefits of Cloud Accounting

Many businesses today are moving away from traditional accounting software and towards remotely hosted cloud accounting. In cloud accounting, users access the accounting software remotely through the Internet. Using cloud accounting software frees businesses from having to install and maintain software on individual desktop computers. It also allows employees in remote or branch offices to access the same data and the same version of the software.
So what are the main benefits of Cloud accounting and why should you consider it for your business?

1. Access your accounts in the cloud, anytime, anywhere
The office, home, at a meeting, the Golf course, you can access your accounts anywhere….all you need is an internet connection. Todays businesses and customers are always on the move and always connected. Access the real-time information you need from any location using any smart device. Are your sales or marketing teams on the road, meeting partners, vendors, or clients? Now, they can submit and approve invoices, communicate with you and more using Android and iOS apps.

2. Simple to use
A switch to cloud accounting can reduce manual data entry and other time-consuming admin – so you can get time back so to grow the business. Reducing the time you spend on paperwork means better efficiency.

3. Share information online easily
Cloud accounting means significantly increased accessibility to your businesses information. Share the information you need to share with your accountant, bookkeeper, bank, business partner – whoever, whenever.

4. Say goodbye to year-end historical data
With real-time dashboards, forecasting, automatic reports, and multi-dimensional capabilities, you can look at your business in new and insightful ways across team projects, business units, geographies, products, clients and more. With this increased access to up to the minute data your business will benefit from improved decision making.

5. Remove the need for manual and paper based systems
Get organised – free up space in your office. Ignite productivity by automating time-consuming admin and connecting your teams to the information they need in real time—no more costly delays correcting human error, waiting for information, or manually entering data.

6. Keep the tax man happy – worldwide!
100% HMRC compliant software and systems. Stay up-to-date with the latest tax regulations and legislation across multiple countries. Overcome international boundaries and stay competitive (and compliant) globally.

7. Stay safe and secure
Your files are backed up “in the cloud” = Peace of mind. The remote servers with your data on are hosted in an environment with the same security technology as a bank. Your data is protected by electronic security systems, like encrypted connections and Virtual Private Networks (VPN). This makes it very difficult for hackers and viruses to get to your information, and allows you to update and share your data safely online.

This is where Sage Live comes in: the world’s first real-time accounting solution built on Salesforce.
Sage Live is fully cloud-based, so you get all of these immediate benefits to your business. With Sage Live you and your team are always connected to what’s happening across your business.

By unifying your data in one hub with Sage Live, you no longer have to deal with the time-waste of departmental blockades (such as outdated technology, red tape, collating reports from disconnected sources, or digging for customer information that’s nestled away in other departments or applications), all of which obstructs the flow of critical information.

You also avoid the risks of disk crashes, document loss, computer theft, and cumbersome legacy stacks that hamper agility and productivity. Sage Live is about making new sense of accounting.

What is Marketing Automation?

According to Google's search trend tools, search traffic for the term "Marketing Automation" has risen nearly 40% since October of last year. Interest in the technology seems to be growing, and if you’re not yet an automation user you may be asking yourself “why?” What is marketing automation all about?

Marketing automation is:
Technology that allows marketing and sales departments to create, deploy, and automate online marketing campaigns and sales activities that increase revenue and maximize efficiency.

In it’s most basic form, marketing automation is a set of tools designed to streamline and simplify some of the most time consuming responsibilities of the modern marketing and sales roles. From automating the lead qualification process to creating a hub for digital campaign creation, automation is all about simplifying a business world that is growing far too complex, much too quickly.

Marketing Automation and CRM
Your CRM tool is already a central part of your business and a key element in tracking, recording, and accessing customer data and performance metrics. Integrating marketing automation with your CRM system is like updating your favourite smartphone app to suddenly have all the features you’ve been dreaming of. It’s the same familiar platform, now with the ability to track prospect activity with your campaigns and on your site, real-time sales alerts when buyers are showing purchasing behaviour, ROI reporting, and much more.

Putting Sales and Marketing on the Same Page
It’s no secret that in most organisations, integration between sales and marketing is often a little rocky. But why? As technology continues to evolve and shape the buying cycle, marketing and sales are only growing closer together, making efficient collaboration between the two more important than ever.

The misalignment between the two departments isn’t necessarily the fault of one over another. That fault lies with outdated processes and structures. When marketing and sales are working with different tools toward separate goals, it’s only natural for tensions to result. Fortunately, marketing automation can help provide a solution by improving lead quality, increasing revenue, and automating traditionally manual processes like lead assignment and follow-up.

Better Data For Smarter Decisions
It seems like everyone these days is talking about “big data,” but few business have a grasp on how to collect and utilise it. Marketing automation allows you to effortlessly embrace big data, collecting valuable data at tremendous scale and putting it to work for you by helping you make smarter marketing and sales decisions.

By providing a single platform for collecting and storing data, closed-loop reporting, and dashboarding and analytics, marketing automation platforms are the most comprehensive solution for measuring marketing and predicting consumer behaviour on a small-business budget. Assemble a more complete profile of your prospects than ever before, A/B test your marketing assets to find the techniques that work best, and truly understand the contribution sales and marketing are making to the bottom line.

What is GDPR?

The GDPR is coming.

You may have heard the term GDPR and wondered what it means. On May 25, 2018, a new landmark privacy law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect in the European Union (EU). The GDPR expands the privacy rights granted to EU individuals, and it places many new obligations on organisations that market to, track or handle EU personal data, no matter where an organisation is located. Xenogenix and Salesforce are here to help our customers in their efforts to comply with the GDPR through robust privacy and security protections.

What is the GDPR?
A new comprehensive data protection law in the EU that updates existing laws to strengthen the protection of personal data in light of rapid technological developments, increased globalization, and more complex international flows of personal data. It replaces the patchwork of national data protection laws currently in place with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state.

What does the GDPR Regulate?
The GDPR regulates the “processing,” which includes the collection, storage, transfer or use, of personal data about EU individuals. Any organization that processes personal data of EU individuals, including tracking their online activities, is within the scope of the law, regardless of whether the organisation has a physical presence in the EU. Importantly, under the GDPR, the concept of “personal data” is very broad and covers any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (also called a “data subject”)

What is Salesforce’s GDPR Commitment?
Salesforce are committed to compliance with the GDPR. Salesforce are also dedicated to helping customers comply with the GDPR, currently working to make enhancements to the full range of products, contracts and documentation to support compliance with the GDPR.

For more information you can visit the Salesforce GDPR website here,

Xenogenix will post updated information as it becomes available to ensure you are as up to date as possible with any changes regarding GDPR. For any questions regarding this subject matter call 08456 525 625 or fill in the form and we will get back to you.
