Don’t Stress, Creative Programs and Systems Can Help!
With the tax season quickly approaching, it is imperative to have your financial matters in order. It’s pretty much a no brainer that businesses of any size need a software program to manage their finances. First, let’s start off by suggesting to stay away from any free, web-based software programs as your data is held and owned by them and security is unknown. Instead, choose a software program like: QuickBooks, Sage 50 (Peachtree), MAS 90, Fishbowl, FreshBooks, and others alike. Web-based versions of paid software lend some credibility, FreshBooks and QuickBooks Online are the two most common. Desktop/Server versions are hosted within your own computer network, where you can manage and oversee the security with regular external backups on your hard-drive, you truly own your data. They cost money; sure, usually a monthly or yearly license fee based on users, but isn’t your security and peace of mind worth the cost?
Ok, so now you have chosen the software program you need, and most likely you will come across issues on how to properly install it; installation differences based on your computer, is your hardware up to date and able to accept this newly purchased software, networking the licensed users, ensuring your firewall or other filters are not blocking the upload, etc. and etc. Now, you're stressed again and have already wasted so much time, and your computer may be in limbo of functioning as normally as it should…ugh. Picture painted? Have you been in this spot before or do you continue to put off the inevitable? Ease the stress of burden and give our professional technicians at CPS a call. We’ll take care of the hassle and ensure no downtime for your business. Now, wasn’t that easy!
