Accounting is not easy. You either do it manually and jot down expense after gruesome expense, or you can buy an expensive accounting program to chart down the company’s spending. You can go with the two traditional ways of doing accounting for the business, or you can do it on the web.
What makes these online finance tracking services different from your run-off-the-mill accounting programs, you might add? For one, the mobility and accessibility of such tools offers convenience. You can input expenses even when you’re at a different location. The only problem I see with online accounting programs is when you lose web connection.
Let’s move on to these web-based expense-tracking services, shall we?
LessAccounting.com is one that I’d suggest to small businesses. Since you’re busy working out stuff for the company, using this less labor-intensive accounting tool will help lessen the time you spend keeping tabs of your finances and free up more time for other important matters.
You also have TheBudket.com which provides a system that allows you to plan finances ahead, analyze cash flow, and do collaborative accounting if you are composed of an accounting team of many.
Quickbooks.Intuit.com is a known provider of accounting software. They have since produced an online version of their popular software which allows simultaneous log ins on the same account for viewing purposes. This works great for maintaining financial transparency in multi-member businesses.
Spendji.com, on the other hand, offers a system that can be used to follow the expense progress for projects and plans for small groups to a large organization.
Lastly, we have SpicyDigits.com which offers a group accounting system wherein multiple users can input new expenses into the system. The great thing about this is that an email is automatically sent to each member to inform them of the update that was done.
These are all very useful tools both for single and collaborative accounting purposes. How about you, though? Have you tried using online accounting services? Which one are you using and how does it fair for you?
