All this talk about clouds sounds kind of whimsical for accounting, doesn’t it? No such luck. All that accounting in the clouds means is that instead of loading accounting software onto your computer, you work online instead using your Internet browser. Usually, you still have to pay for this software, but instead buying software as a one-off purchase, you pay a monthly or annual subscription. Which is why this kind of software is called ‘software as a service’ or SAAS for short.
Speaking of clouds, the skies have just opened and it’s raining sooo hard I’ve just gotten a drop of rain on my computer screen. How the rain got through that tiny crack in the window and all the across here is one of life’s wonders.
