Ever wished your software could be as customizable as your car? From the rims to the transmission, you can style things almost any way you want to get the vehicle that’s the best fit for your needs, amount of driving, terrain, even climate. If your accounting software feels less customizable than your car, it might be time to look at a different type of system: cloud-based accounting.

Cloud-based accounting systems such as Acumatica ERP offer excellent flexibility so you can adapt the system to your business—not the other way around. Many software packages have a rigid setup, meaning you’ll need to invest in expensive outsourcing to get the right workflow or the exact reports you need.

With Acumatica, you have a system that offers users the ability to customize many aspects. Its flexible approach to cloud-based accounting systems is making Acumatica is one of the most popular ERP systems for small to mid-sized businesses.

Adaptability in Cloud-Based Accounting Systems

Cloud-based accounting systems offer an adaptable platform for a versatile, easily customized system. With both cloud and mobile technology, users can log in from anywhere with an internet connection and experience the same system regardless of device or location.

Another bonus of an adaptable platform is its ability to seamlessly integrate with other software. Common APIs—or languages that help programs “speak” to one another—mean multiple systems can connect and share information. This ensures your business has the right software to meet its productivity goals. You aren’t locked into using only software from your accounting or ERP software vendor. The cloud-based accounting system you choose should work with multiple packages that fit your needs, goals, and company.

The Benefits of Adaptable Platforms

Adaptable cloud-based accounting systems offer users many benefits, including:

  1. Limitless applications: Connect multiple applications through the cloud. As your business grows, expands, and changes, choose the right software for your needs and add it to the base package.
  2. Adding users: Many ERP and cloud-based accounting systems charge by the user. Adaptable platforms allow unlimited users along with the ability to track user actions. You don’t pay for licenses you don’t use, and you don’t have to worry about seasonal shifts in personnel when adding more people requires updating your license agreement.
  3. Mobility: Adaptable platforms allow you to access your accounting system wherever you are with any device. All you need is a secure internet connection and your login information.
  4. Easy access: Information can be accessed easily through cloud-based accounting systems. Retrieving information takes only seconds for less frustration, better data, and happier employees and customers.
  5. Customizable dashboards: An adaptable platform enables you to create a dashboard based on roles. Accounting team members access different information than the marketing team, and their dashboards can be customized to suit their needs.
