Cloud Accountants Breaking Rules

Accountants live by the rules. They keep things in balance and play by the rules. In a recent speech by Greg Sheehan, CEO of RightWay, he touched on the need to break those rules.

The point of his talk was to talk about how the focus for any business is growth. This means that change is involved while a business strives to offer solutions to their customers’ problems. If a business is caught flat-footed, they will die.

The presence of the cloud changes the game for everyone. Smart devices allow the accessing of data from anywhere. This means that an accountant/advisor can be involved in all aspects of the business. They no longer are just managing dollars, but instead they are in the position to manage the performance. While businesses continue to make the money that drives the economy, those in the accounting field find themselves in the middle of it all.

Using this perspective, accountants today can be prepared to break some rules in their new role as defined by a world with the cloud.
