Top 5 Things Your Workflow Software Needs in 2022
Accounting firms are increasingly achieving revenue gains using an accounting workflow software. With several options now on the market, these are the top 5 things your firm should be looking for when making a decision on accounting workflow software.
The Ability to Organize and Prioritize Work
Your workflow software should allow you to quickly understand the work you need to do while providing you the ability to organize and prioritize that work. In addition, your workflow software should provide workspaces which organize information and files so you can focus on your work and do it faster.
Automatically Time Tracking
Automatic time tracking saves your firm time by tracking your time and makes underbilling a thing of the past. The increased accuracy of automatic time tracking will reveal additional billing opportunities for every member of your firm.
Embedded Document Management
An embedded document management system allows firms quick access to the files and information needed to complete work on an engagement. A typical accountant deals with several thousand files a year and can create and save 10-20 seconds every time they open, send or save a file.
Accounting firms must ensure their data and client data is stored and saved in a manner outlined by their federal and local regulations. Failing to do so puts your data at risk and puts your firm at risk for fines and legal liabilities.
Minimize Use of Other Software
When communicating and time tracking on an engagement or file time is lost every time an accountant switches programs. Ensuring your workflow software has the features you need communicate, launch files and time track minimizes your overall software investment while allowing you to work more efficiently.
