In today’s technology-driven world, cloud computing has greatly enhanced how CPA firms in Houston do business; and these CPAs rely on CITOC to provide them the technology and cloud services & solutions they depend on.
Accountants, like professionals in almost every industry in the Houston area are adjusting at a furious pace to the march of technology. Technology solutions improve business functions, and cloud computing exponentially contributes to these improvements. Cloud computing increases productivity, security, and value that CPAs can pass on to their clients.
In today’s world of accounting and cloud computing, CPAs are able to access services, software and information from the vast resources on the cloud; plus the cloud allows for enormous amounts of data storage and sharing (Big Data).
According to Warren Puy Arena, the IT Director of CPA firm Porter Keadle Moore LLP:
“From the perspective of a CPA firm, in the last few years, we have seen an increasing need to invest in technology designed to secure and protect our clients’ and the firm’s electronic assets. This need has been primarily driven by regulatory requirements on non-public data security now facing our clients.”
With cloud computing CPAs can offer services to clients that would typically require adding costly technology infrastructures. And despite some people’s concern that financial data is at risk, most experts agree that it’s actually safer being stored in the cloud than with traditional storage methods.
Randy Johnston, Executive Vice President of K2 Enterprises, that offers continuing education for financial professionals and accountants, says:
“I believe cloud computing actually reduces the risk for most businesses, primarily because the data centers used for cloud computing have greater levels of skill and technical protection than most businesses.”
