Complete cloud-based bookkeeping solutions are ideal for Edmonton contractors
People in the construction industry know - your "office" may be in a different physical location from one week to the next; sometimes from one day to the next. A necessary aspect of managing multiple projects, this type of setup presents unique challenges to general contractors, single-trade contractors and their vendors. Team members are rarely in the same place at the same time. In some instances, designers, project managers, and other key people may not even be in the same region. With the cloud-based complete bookkeeping services available today, Edmonton area contractors can find the solutions they need to keep operations running smoothly.
If you have yet to harness the power of the cloud, there are several reasons to consider doing just that:
Mobility and flexibility. Historically, it has been necessary to set up a solid IT infrastructure at each site in which personnel would be located. This may mean the installation of software on multiple computers in various cities. Decentralizing infrastructure may have been the only way to share pertinent data, but it carried the risk of data loss and inconsistency in the area of reporting. Cloud infrastructure allows access to important files via a number of devices, such as smartphones and tablets. This makes an enormous difference in a field in which your vehicle is often your office!
Safe, efficient file management. Projects require a multitude of large documents, from multi-media presentations to CAD files and numerous drawings. Data sharing in a cloud-based infrastructure can include everyone from vendors to subcontractors and all internal participants. Because data and files are stored in the cloud, no backup is necessary. Files remain protected even if your mobile or other media device stops working.
Collaboration. Because data is stored in the cloud and conveniently accessible to all integral team members, overall efficiency in collaboration is heightened. Project managers, subcontractors, vendors, and others have the ability to share RFQs, RFIs, tenderbids and other documentation in a way that improves communication and reduces mistakes.
