What is a Real Time Accountant?

HeroTraditionally accountants have worked on their clients’ accounts several months in arrears preventing any form of planning and sensible decision making because the numbers are so out of date.

But we have access to our clients’ data in real time, made possible by using cloud accounting technology, so we can give them timely support based upon accurate information.

Let’s compare the Redundant Historical Accountant and the Real Time Accountant.
