The days of keeping hand-written records of financial comings-and-goings are long gone – and with good reason. The sheer amount of paperwork that would be generated by modern businesses if they kept exclusively paper-based records doesn’t bear thinking about. Whilst it is naturally necessary to keep hard copies of important financial documents and reports, an increasing proportion of the work involved in business bookkeeping makes use of any number of accountancy software programmes – and if you can’t get your head around them, you’ll soon find yourself being left behind.
Who Uses It?
On one level or another, everyone uses accountancy software. Whether the software is purchased from a third party, or developed in-house, at some point every modern business will realise the benefits of using some sort of software to keep track of their finances – even if it’s just a spreadsheet in Excel.
Why Do I Need To Know About It?
A working knowledge of accounting software – especially the more recognisable brands such as Sage – is becoming almost a prerequisite for many accounting positions in the modern business setting. Failure to obtain a relevant qualification in computerised bookkeeping can put a swift end to any job application, as a great number of modern businesses rely exclusively on some form of accountancy software to take care of their day-to-day finances. If you can’t demonstrate at least an aptitude for accountancy software, then your prospects don’t look good.
