Should Your Bookkeeper be a Technophile?

For some, the task of finding good bookkeeper services to handle their daily business needs can be on a par with finding the holy grail. It’s a never-ending quest that rarely results in complete satisfaction. The big problem always seems to be finding a bookkeeper that’s got loads of skill and that’s adaptable to change, too. In particular, technological change. But do all bookkeepers for small businesses have to be technophiles?

The answer is no, but it wouldn’t exactly hurt matters, either. These days, the business of bookkeeping has become highly automated. Gone are the days—and some might even say good riddance—of manual “paper” accounting entries. And a bookkeeper that doesn’t have their feet planted firmly in the 21st century with respect to automated bookkeeping software programs isn’t someone that many business owners will want to keep on their payroll for long.

By seeking out third party bookkeeper services, business owners can once and for all break away from arcane methods of old and embrace fully virtual, 100 percent automated accounting practices. An idea whose time has come thanks to the affordability of computers and high speed internet, companies are now able to outsource their bookkeeping duties to remote teams of highly skilled and pre-trained accountants, resulting in the best of both worlds: bookkeepers skilled in numbers and technology. If that’s not a winning combo, nothing is.
