DIGITAL STORAGE SOLUTIONS FOR TEAMS: DROPBOX

The following article was originally posted by Daniel Kosmala on the www.foojee.com website.

When it comes to Digital Storage in the workplace, there are a number of viable options. Some of you might be asking why digital storage is necessary when you can have a local copy of your documents on your device or you can save files to a centralized server. Those are both great to have, but what if your hard drive fails or worse, what if the server in your office dies and all of your stored data is lost? All of that precious client data and countless hours of work could be gone in the blink of an eye.

One of your options is to have the documents you regularly need and use stored in the cloud. Over the coming weeks we’ll be exploring, in-depth, the cloud storage solutions currently available to you.

The following article was originally posted by Stephanie Zucchi on the www.zbrella.com website.

Here are the facts: the market for Accounting has become increasingly, and excruciatingly competitive. Most CPA’s are faced with the problem of gaining business within this cut throat market all while trying to differentiate their craft. Many accountants, however, are missing out on advising their clients about one of the most important aspects of their business: technology.

But why does technology really matter? And why will your clients thank you for advising them about it? Let’s take a look.

Why does technology matter?

Every business now runs on technology. We rely on it for accurate and efficient reporting. That information is the foundation of financial reports because it records day-to-day business information.

A business always needs to be on the lookout for what new technologies can improve a process, lower costs, or deliver a game changing competitive advantage. Your clients need to be advised about it.
