Emergence of business accounting mobile applications
Ishmeet Kaur, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for enterprise application research talks about how business accounting software are transforming the way in which businesses operate. She says, “The applications help customers handle daily accounting tasks, unhindered by location or time factors. These mobile accounting apps streamline processes such as sending invoices, accepting payments, logging expenses, tracking receipts, and planning budgets.”
There are many vendors in the market offering similar services, and customers spend a considerable amount of resources in deciding the right platform based on their requirements. Most of the mobile accounting applications offer basic features such as invoicing and expense tracking. Advanced features in applications include bill reminders, mobile wallets, and bank transfers.
Introduction of optical character recognition (OCR)
OCR technology is used to convert images into readable and editable text, using which an image of a paragraph in Spanish or French captured on a camera phone can be translated into English in real time. Currently, many businesses implement the OCR technology in their accounting processes. The technology has eliminated the need for handwritten forms, checks, or printed receipts. The OCR technology uploads all handwritten receipts onto an online accounting platform and extracts all the relevant text and data simultaneously. The increasing adoption of this platform will further drive market growth.
Increasing integration of business accounting software with big data
“The adoption of big data infrastructure is increasing in industry verticals such as banking, retail, and media and entertainment. Big data aids the firms to get timely insights to retain their customers and strengthen their market position by collecting and storing information such as purchase preferences of customers, the progress of competitors, and performance of various workplace tools,” says Ishmeet.
Big data solutions also play a critical role in the business development of an organization through the deployment of cloud-based business accounting software to enhance business efficiency. This has simplified the account management process and automated the import transactions, digital receipts tracking, payroll automation, and tax tracking, which is driving for its increasing adoption.
