SME Cloud Accounting Software Review

Cloud accounting is the new way for SME businesses to maintain their book-keeping records. Accounting software is cloud hosted, allowing live data to be accessed from any fixed or mobile location that has an internet connection. Although this medium of delivery has been around for approximately 15 years now, SME business users have been slow to adopt this new technology. But as competition intensifies, users become familiar with cloud hosting and prices tumble are we now at the ‘tipping point’?
