Everything You Need to Know About Hosted Accounting Software

Hosted accounting software or Cloud computing accounting is a practice of using a series of networks of remote servers across the internet to host your accounting software. These servers are specially hosted to store, manage and process accounting data rather than using your local server or a personal computer. Basically what hosted accounting application does is to make the accounting software available from a remote cloud infrastructure that is accessed through the internet. Cloud services provide customers with features such as scalability, security, elasticity and redundancy.


What are the benefits of hosted accounting / cloud accounting?

  • Affordable: You do not need to make a huge investment in purchasing servers and storages, with hosting accounting solution you pay for what you actually use and you have the option to upgrade the resources as you go.
  • Low maintenance: In a hosted environment, hosting provider takes care of the hardware and underlying infrastructure so you do need to hire IT specialist or worry about downtime and connectivity to the outside world.
  • Easy to access: Because your data is hosted in the cloud, authorized users can access the application from virtually anywhere, as long as you have access to the internet.
  • Business continuity: Cloud servers remove the single point of failure because there is always another hardware node ready to take over from a failing node; it minimizes downtime without the expense of having a replica physical server sitting idle.
