For technology companies with aspirations to be Venture-Backed, a strong set of books will be a foundation for financial organization and a source of truth as to the company’s performance.
Here are some advantages of Quickbooks that can help you achieve those goals
- Easy to generate Financial Statements: Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Statement of Cash Flows as an example.
- Keeping a pulse on your business performance: A well-run accounting system will ensure that you can analyze your receivables and payables efficiently and plan cash flow accordingly. For busy founders, burn rate, runway, and cash on hand are important metrics to help with your fundraising timeline and add urgency to executing customer deliverables and timing vendor payments.
- Providing your team and advisors with the right level of access: With Quickbooks Online, your technology company can set user permissions and ensure that members of your finance team have access to the most relevant information. This will ensure segregation of duties and prevent fraud and other employee misconduct. For early-stage founders, we find that their initial management team and advisors can be in a state of flux, so having the ability to manage permissions is critical for privacy and security.
- Integrations: Today’s fintech stack is comprised of more than just the accounting system – You need all your mission-critical systems talking to your accounting system in real-time, including your CRM – Customer Relationship Manager (i.e., Salesforce), Merchant Processing (i.e., Stripe, Square, Paypal), Payroll/HR Function (i.e., Gusto, Justworks), Bill-Pay (i.e., Bill.com, Melio, etc.). Quickbooks Online has a ton of integrations to ensure financial data is synced across systems.
