In the nonprofit world, where deadlines are pressing and time is of the essence, procrastination can become a hindrance to your organization. If you’re procrastinating on looking at migrating your association’s accounting software to the cloud, now might be a good time to check that off your task list. Relying on a cloud accounting software solution gives your association added security, greater flexibility for employees, and an easily scalable solution for when your non-profit needs it most.
Enhance Your Organization’s Security.
For some, putting off migrating to the cloud is a question of security. However, cloud-based programs actually offer higher levels of data encryption and security to your organization. For example, MIP® Accounting utilizes robust data storage centers, which are frequently audited and backed up for enhanced protection against looming cybersecurity threats. An added bonus of the cloud is a lower cost of ownership. Because data storage centers are constantly monitored, the need for IT department monitoring from your team is eliminated; freeing up employees to work on other crucial tasks.
Keep Your Company Flexible.
By making the decision to migrate to the cloud, you’ll be able to create greater flexibility throughout your nonprofit and help employees meet deadlines with ease. The use of the cloud offers workers the option to work remotely and access important information so that deliverables are completed on time, no matter where workers are located. Not only is this a great perk to offer employees but it also helps eliminate downtime in the case of an unexpected event.
Scale Up as Your Needs Grow.
Accounting solutions for your nonprofit should be scalable to fit your need in an ever-changing environment. Cloud accounting software solutions are designed to grow with you and provide quick access to the tools needed for success. Having a scalable solution creates greater ease in delivering association members with a dependable experience while also giving you the option to add new employees to satisfy those members’ needs.
Don’t let your urge to “put it off until tomorrow” get the best of you. Consider taking the plunge and look at the benefits of migrating to cloud accounting for your organization.
