Desktop Software

Are you a small business looking to streamline your accounting processes? An alternative to cloud accounting software is desktop software, which may be more suitable for your business if fewer people require access to your accounting data and processes.


What is desktop software for accounting?

Desktop software for accounting can assist your business with important accounting tasks. This can involve automating some of the more repetitive processes that come with accounting, allowing your team to save time. The key difference between desktop software and cloud software is that desktop software is stored on individual computers, instead of a remote server.

Desktop software comes with various features, meaning they’re not one-size-fits-all. This is why it’s essential for you to discuss your business’s requirements with an expert in order to understand which software is best for you.


Why does my business need desktop software?

Desktop software is suitable if only a small number of people require access to the accounting software, or if you don’t require remote access. As such, desktop software is a good accounting solution for smaller businesses who are entirely office based.


What are the benefits of desktop software for accounting?

  • There are many different variations of desktop software, allowing you to choose a solution that suits your business’s requirements.
  • Desktop software often allows for the integration of a wider variety of accounting modules without the need of a third party of additional software solutions.
  • Desktop software may be more reliable for a small, office-based team as it does not necessarily require an internet connection to function.
