According to a CPA Practice Advisor article, “Cloud usage among small businesses is exploding thanks to the tangible business value it has been proven to deliver," said Kae Williams, general manager at Exact, U.S. Cloud Solutions. "With heavy cloud users reaping more profits and business growth than their cloud-hesitant peers, there’s little room for doubt that now is the time to use online business software. Cloud is no longer just for large enterprises – it’s for any company who wants to be competitive, efficient and provide stellar customer service.”
In the accounting industry, "Only 33 percent of accountants are using cloud solutions for administrative processes, with the rest still using on-premise administrative solutions"
