Imagine the financial impact and hours of work to update and adapt each client that uses accounting systems individually, that is, in systems installed on local servers, even running the risk of generating expenses with technology to adapt the changes.

For clients contracting accounting services

By hiring accounting firms that use Cloud Computing providers such as AWS, customers are assured that all their information is stored in locations that adopt the best market standards, reducing the risk of attacks or leaks, and the possibility of Access accounting data from anywhere or on any device.

It is also important to highlight that, when using cloud computing, it is necessary to make sure that certain customers do not have privileges, since the accounting system shares the same updates and is adapted to the changes of the new Simples.
