Starting your own business can cause many headaches. If you run your own enterprise, you need to be many things: marketer, writer, salesperson and even accountant. If you don’t have a love for numbers, bean counting is probably not your forte! Hiring someone to do it would be ideal, but a professional CPA doesn’t come cheap. Payroll software is your next best bet, but there are so many choices and most of them need some sort of financial qualification to operate. Except Mind Your Own Business (MYOB) software, that is. Their products are specifically aimed at SMBs, and are easy to use and hassle free. With their new cloud capabilities, it’s mobile and secure, too. Here are some more reasons why MYOB will help you to ditch the payroll blues.
Remote server convenience
MYOB’s latest cloud technology allows you to access the software over the Internet, so you don’t need to purchase or install any additional programmes. According to sbscc.com, access to the software is via a remote, rented server. This means you don’t need an expensive IT set-up for your business. It also means that you can access the software from any computer, so you can do your payroll when you’re out of the office. In addition, you won’t need to constantly update your hardware memory, as everything is stored on the remote server (sbscc.com).
Perfect for start-ups
According to myob.com, their LiveAccounts software is specifically aimed at fledgling businesses. When you’re starting out, there are so many things you need to focus on and accounts shouldn’t take up all of your time. MYOB’s flexible cloud capabilities allow you to create invoices or make payments, all with a few clicks of a mouse. You can also choose whether you want to work online or offline, as any offline work is easily synchronised when you’re back on the net.
According to sbscc.com, the remote server is dedicated and guaranteed secure, so you don’t need to worry about any data loss. Your information is regularly backed up onto the server, which means even if your laptop is stolen, you’re still good to go. You can also safely share your accounts online.
It’s easy to use
The last thing you need is complicated software. MYOB is intuitive, and it doesn’t take long before you’re up and running. For those less technologically inclined, some e-Learning vendors provide online courses to use the software. These courses are part time and range from one-day intensives (for absolute beginners) to advanced. Even if you’re familiar with the software, an advanced course can enable you to use it more efficiently by customising invoices or using time billing.
MYOB payroll software will help your start-up to save time, and money. Its flexibility will allow you to do your accounts when (and where) it’s convenient for you. Although it’s easy to use, doing a short MYOB course is highly recommended, as this will enable you to use the software efficiently. Enrol in an introductory course today and start freeing up time to focus on what’s most important: your business.
