Are digital accounts better than good old pen and paper?

Digital Accounts can save 35% of your time.  They are a cross between a smartphone anticipating what you want to do and an ‘Alexa’ assisting you in doing it.

The self-learning features in the new style of digital software make them so much more.   Their automatic functions replace the tasks that you just never get around to such as, Debt collecting, Confirming payments, sending statements and one of the most popular functions is there ability to scan a bill/receipt and save it. There are so many on the market..

Sage – Good for lots of stock
QuickBooks – Market leader
QuickFile . – Simplest
 Xero – Lots of apps to attach
