1 Heading 1 (Arial bold - point size 22) My Business Online Accountants’ & Bookkeepers’ Day 27 June 2013 Tweet us! @PastelAccounts #accountantsday

2 “A single view of the truth” – Charles Teversham 2013 What is Cloud Computing ? Tweet us! @PastelAccounts #accountantsday

3 What is Cloud Accounting? Accounting software that runs over the internet updating data stored on the internet. No software is installed at either your client or your offices – you merely “sign up” and create your set of books. All users access the same data using the same version of the software. It’s the latest wave in technology providing a “win,win” scenario to both your practice and your clients business. Tweet us! @PastelAccounts #accountantsday

4 No delays – work whenever you want to from wherever you want. No synchronisation of data. No need for backing up and restoring of the client’s data. Reporting is always consistent - everyone accesses the same data which avoids confusion – there’s only “one version of the truth”. Multi-user functionality allows the accountant and the business to work on the same data at the same time! Its just so much more efficient and provides the platform to operate in a more connected world where a single view of the data is imperative. Access to the same data! Why is this important?

5 The Accountants Console provides a single view of all you clients. Client now has access to high quality, up to date information. Empower your clients and grow their business through new added value functionality. You now have more time to move to high value consulting. By increasing your own efficiency, you increase your capacity to take on more clients. Its the most fundamental shift in technology in the past 20 years! Pastel has used all their experience gained over this period to develop a totally new and exciting way for your clients to manage their businesses in a collaborative way with their accountants. The “on-line” accounting trend has gained huge momentum internationally. Why ? – Its efficient, its value add, its fun, it works! Don’t miss out! Why should I use it?

10 Progressive and forward thinking - they are aware of the “latest” technologies out there and the ease of use associated with these technologies. They in turn want a progressive accountant. They want to be more informed. Admin is simply a frustration to them - they want to save time - don’t want to have to meet in person, on the move.
