If you are a manufacturer then your employees will need to update Production Orders as they move through your factory.

Five Reasons to Migrate to Cloud-based Accounting Software

Whether it’s a hosted approach (where you run your traditional accounting software on a remote, web-accessible server) or an SaaS solution (here, an outside vendor sells you access to their software, which accumulates, stores, manages, allows you to analyze your financial data) – there are, pun intended, a host of reasons to take a hard look at the cloud. And lest you assume we’re biased, I’ll just point out Polaris is an integrator that has long experience with, and a deep appreciation of, both traditional, on-premises accounting software and the new breed of web-based solutions. So, it’s with a legitimate measure of objectivity that we can enumerate our top five reasons to migrate your accounting function to the cloud.
