Financial Management Software

Many finance leaders are struggling to contribute strategically to the business due to ageing technology, increasing regulatory burdens and skills shortages. This often leads to compromising, complacency, underperformance and undervaluation.

Finance teams need to be empowered to support and deliver business growth which is exactly why we created Cloud Financials. It’s a robust and secure financial management software, developed with 25 years of experience, to support all your finance needs – now and in the future.

Understanding key issues


Inability to understand data

Understanding the numbers is crucial, but finance teams can spend days manipulating data to gain insight into financial performance. That’s more time on admin and less on proactive tasks.

You can't make quick decisions

Reporting and analysis takes time, which makes it difficult to help the board and CEO make decisions in a timely manner – therefore blocking your impact on business growth and success.

You can’t plan for the future

Forecasting effectively is key if finance teams are to strategically advise the business, but many struggle to understand what different scenarios could mean.

Worrying about legislation

In the past 12 months alone, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Making Tax Digital have posed huge challenges for finance teams, fundamentally changing the way they work.

Supporting business initiatives

Without accurate, real-time data, finance chiefs are often unable to confidently advise the CEO and drive decision-making in the business.

Too much time on the numbers

The finance department is no longer about number crunching. However, due to ageing technology and outdated processes, teams often spend too much time wrapped up in these mundane tasks.

  • What is the advantage of using Cloud-based financial management software?

    One of the big advantages of moving to the Cloud is that you can access your system anytime, anywhere. This has proven to be critical for businesses facing the challenges of the pandemic. Utilising the Cloud also means all your data is stored safely and securely, so you don’t to have to worry about physical documents and data getting lost or misplaced. Cloud software is priced differently, allowing customers to pay a subscription fee rather than hefty upfront costs. It includes upgrades and licence fees every year, making it much more affordable and cost effective.


  • What is the benefit of integrated document management in financial management software?

    Processing supplier invoices is extremely time-consuming and expensive. In addition, delays in invoice processing can result in reduced supplier discounts and late payment penalties. Our software automates and streamlines the processing of supplier invoices, centralising the deposit of financial documents into a secure, easily accessible repository.

  • How secure is my data in Cloud-based financial management software?

    Cloud Financials from Advanced is based on Amazon Web Services, which is one of the most trusted Cloud platforms globally. Full disaster recovery is provided with 24/7 system availability and 99 per cent product uptime.

  • Why do I need SaaS-based financial management software?

    Moving to a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model means you pay one simple monthly fee for your product, support, account management and services. All upgrades and enhancements are built into the product in real time and included within your monthly subscription costs. This means you won’t be hit with any scary upgrade surprises later on down the line.

  • When is the best time to switch to Cloud-based financial management software?

    To put it bluntly, now. This year has shown that moving to the Cloud is no longer a ‘nice to have’ but a ‘must have’ for organisations who want to remain agile and access systems remotely with ease. Moving to the Cloud also has cost benefits over time, and can be a good way to reduce on-premise software spend.
