No figures again? No up-to-date evaluations again? In many medium-sized companies, things are not running smoothly in the accounting department. The effort required to enter, print and check incoming invoices and receipts is often high and involves a lot of manual work. Staff shortages add to the stress. It is not uncommon for accounting to lag behind what is happening in the company. Then the entrepreneur lacks an overview of the economic development of his company – which makes decisions more difficult and involves risks. Every entrepreneur is familiar with the modern and sustainable solution, the digitalization of processes. However, the concrete implementation is lacking in many places. The digitalization of the accounting system is not a free skate for companies, but a duty, otherwise the company cannot be actively managed.
Runs: Digitized Processes save Time and Resources
Digitization of accounting aims to automate routine activities and simplify individual process steps. And it succeeds quite pragmatically. Whether it’s invoice receipt, invoice approval, archiving or invoice issue, reminders or automatic account assignments: With the right tools, accounting processes can be managed efficiently, on a daily basis and transparently. To do this, the first step is to revise the processes: What needs to be changed, what needs to be redone and what can be retained? This is the core of digitalization in accounting, because if only the manual path of a paper invoice is digitalized, this does not lead to an improved process. In the course of digitalization, the opportunity should be taken to really improve processes and structures. Subsequently, based on the requirements, it can be clarified which tools can be used for the respective company. For example, this could be new accounting software, a document management system with font recognition. The right, GoBD-compliant tools significantly simplify the workflow through automated processes and can also be implemented as a first step as an isolated solution with manageable effort.
Less Effort, more Capacity – the Advantages of Digitalization:
Digitized accounting works quickly, avoids errors and reduces the use of human resources. Cooperation with tax advisors, auditors and banks can be noticeably facilitated. On the other hand, management has an overview of the status of liabilities, receivables and its own liquidity through up-to-date evaluations. With a custom-fit solution, medium-sized companies can achieve efficiency gains and information advantages.
