Cloud accounting software operates similarly to traditional on-premises or self-install accounting software. However, in this case, the accounting software is hosted on remote servers, adopting a Software as a Service (SaaS) business model. Data is sent into “the cloud,” processed, and then returned to the user. All application functions occur off-site, eliminating the need for installation and maintenance on individual desktop computers.

In cloud computing, users access software applications remotely through the Internet or another network via a cloud application service provider. This setup allows businesses to enjoy the flexibility of accessing accounting data from various locations and devices with an internet connection.
Cloud accounting solutions extend accessibility to employees in different departments, remote locations, or branch offices, enabling them to access the same data and software version. This promotes collaborative work and efficient information sharing.
