Online accounting serves the same function as accounting software that you would install on your computer, except it runs on our servers and you access it using your web browser, over the Internet. Your data is securely stored and processed on our servers—or “in the cloud”. This means you are able to access your business financials from anywhere and using any device, as long as you are connected to the internet.
There are many benefits to using online accounting. In addition to the flexibility of accessing your data from anywhere, you never need to install software on any device and updates are automatic. Our servers are actively monitored and maintained, and we believe have a much higher level of security than many small business networks and staff laptops. Here’s just some of the ways that Saasu can help you unlock your business’ potential.

Avoid the spreadsheet jungle
Think you’re too small for accounting software? Worried you’ll find it too confusing?
Data that makes sense and is more accurate is possible with online accounting. You may have hacked your spreadsheet to work, but what do your accountants and business advisors think of it? Saasu not only makes it easy for you to enter business activity, but to review it in a way that is meaningful.
Duplicate data entry is a risk in spreadsheets. It can also be a challenge making sense of your data. Saasu can connect directly with your e-commerce website, CRM or other business systems so the data in those systems is pushed through to Saasu. This means that once the connections are set up, your accounts are up-to-date without extra work.
No more waiting on your accountant because Saasu presents your accounts in a usable form, there’s less need to rely on your bookkeeper or accountant to explain what’s going on. Of course, for specialist business advice and opinion they will still be the ones you turn to—but for an understanding of your day-to-day performance and activity, Saasu has you covered.
Saasu is built to make accounting easy, so it’s simple to learn. The buttons, graphs and language used throughout the app are designed to guide you, not confuse you. And, because we’re working hard behind the scenes to make your accounts make sense, you don’t have to, which means no more complicated spreadsheet formulas.
With the right tools, you can get more done.
Spend less time reconciling receipts. Saasu’s automatic bank feeds connect directly to your bank accounts, and update the information in your file every day. This means no more manual entry of transactions, or cross-checking against receipts. All you have to do is sign-in, and match each transaction in your file.
Automate processes. Saasu connects to your other business systems, and updates automatically. This eliminates the need for entering data more than once, maintaining duplicate databases and constantly trying to keep all systems in sync.
Make the most of down-time. Stuck on the train? Delayed at the airport? Because you can sign-in to Saasu from anywhere, you don’t have to wait to get back into the office to be productive. This means any moment you have free can be used to reconcile your accounts, send out a few invoices or run reports to see how performance has been for the week.
Delegate tasks. Saasu lets you assign user roles, controlling who can view and edit specific information, and letting you share some of the responsibility. This means you can let staff and contractors enter their own timesheet information, without being able to see sensitive business information. Or, you can let your accounts team work through purchases, without being able to see pay and pay run details.
