Cloud Accounting

Overview of Cloud Accounting

Thanks to innovative advances in digital technology, the way of the world is changing. This doesn’t just affect the way we spend our leisure time, but the way we do work as well, and the accounting industry is no exception. At Hilton Consulting, it’s our job to keep up with the latest, most secure software to ensure your accounting experience is as accurate, hasslefree, and protected as possible, something that the use of cloud accounting enables. 

Cloud accounting is a way of storing and safeguarding your data, which is sent to “the cloud” and hosted on remote servers. There, it is processed and returned to the user. Using cloud accounting, all functions are applied off site, greatly removing margin for error and saving accountants from falling victim to outdated or unmaintained software across multiple machines. It is a flexible, reliable solution to many of the issues that have previously plagued the accounting industry. At Hilton Consulting, we use a range of cloud accounting software, depending on the needs of our clients, including QuickBooks, Xero, and Receipt Bank. 


Xero was developed with small businesses in mind. Ideal for use across multiple devices, it is essential for professionals who often find themselves on the go. With the simple goal of connecting business owners with their financial data in a fast and simple process, Xero is packed full of useful features, including the capability for collaboration between bookkeepers, accountants, and their clients, who are able to access their data at any time, anywhere.
