New small businesses face unique financial management challenges because they don’t share the same advantages that larger corporations do in the marketplace. Cash flow is a primary concern. Even with a promising product or service that is performing well, and deals being made that will pay out in the future, there is still a limited amount of cash on hand to pay for current expenses. Owners may not receive a steady income for an uncomfortable length of time because paying employees and the bills come first.
Small businesses also often report having problems in the areas of credit availability, making payments on loans and debt, fulfilling on contracts with purchasing, rising manpower costs, the cost of technology and IT departments, and simply paying operating expenses. Unforeseen expenses are difficult to plan for. Inefficiencies in the supply chain can occur that better management could help fix. In the foreground of all these issues is the matter of attracting and retaining customers.
One robust solution that can help make a big difference for struggling and ambitious small businesses is a financial management system that operates in the cloud. Many new companies are taking advantage of the security, flexibility, scalability, and cost-savings of cloud computing solutions, and financial management should be no exception. Maintaining dedicated servers and paying in-house IT personnel for services and products that a third-party cloud provider can handle wastes a lot of resources.
